How To Choose Your Skip Bin Size

Bin Sizes

The bins are always reffered to in cubic metres which is the volume they hold. For example a 4 cubic metre or sometimes shortened to 4 metre bin is not the length of the bin just its volume. In the table below the dimensions of the bins are the top outside edges & they slope inwards from there.

Choosing By Size

The first of the two ways of working out your skip bin size is by measuring your largest item you have going in the skip bin. You would only measure items that can’t be broken down like mattresses, couches, fridges etc. None of our skip bins have opening doors and can only be filled level with the top of the bin.

Choosing By Calculation

The second way of working out your skip bin size is getting all your rubbish in a pile and calculating the size from that. You measure the length, width and height in metres and multiply them all together. For example if your pile was 1 metre high & 2.5 metres long & 1.5 metres wide that equals 3.75 cubic metres so a 4 cubic metre bin will do the job.

2m skip bin

2 Cubic Metre

1.8m long
1.4m wide
1.0m high

The 2m³ skip bins are great for those small tidy up jobs. You won’t be able to fit any big furniture into this size skip bin. Also suitable if you are trimming one hedge and some palm fronds.

3m skip bin

3 Cubic Metre

2.0m long
1.5m wide
1.3m high

The 3m³ skip bins are very popular for your standard cleanup around the house. Will easily fit all of those less bulky objects you have. Also suitable if you are trimming a couple of hedges.

4m skip bin

4 Cubic Metre

2.5m long
1.6m wide
1.2m high

The 4m³ skip bins are our most popular size for household cleanups. You would look at this size if you have a piece of furniture, whitegoods or beds to dispose of.

6m skip bin

6 Cubic Metre

3.8m long
1.6m wide
1.2m high

The 6m³ skip bins are suited for larger cleanups. They’re great for those longer items as well as multiple pieces of furniture, whitegoods, deceased estates or moving house.
