Please fill to the rim only to prevent spillage whilst being transported. This is very important as it is illegal to transport overloaded bins and your bin cannot be collected if overfilled.
As a general rule, the skip bin needs to be placed on private property. This includes most driveways if they are within the boundaries of your property. Your driveway needs to be at least 3 metres wide for a standard truck to fit into the driveway. You should also ensure there are no power lines or trees that may hinder the access and placement of the bin at time of delivery. If you think that access may be difficult, feel free to discuss the location of the skip bin with us as we have smaller trucks available for more difficult access.
Please note that if you need us to place the bin off your property, such as on a footpath or nature strip, you will need to check with your local council as you may require a permit. We are a registered preferred bin supplier in the following councils – Marrickville, Canterbury, Dulwich Hill, Burwood, Woollahra, Waverley and Leichhardt.
The most common size skip bins for a household clean up are 2 to 6. For a large cleanup or renovation, 8 and 10 bins are more suitable.
For builders, the most frequently used bins are generally from 8-30, depending on the waste type.
We usually allow for 1 week hire as we find this is enough time for most clean ups. If you require the bin for longer just let us know. Or, if you have filled the bin earlier, just call us and we will come and collect it.
We can deliver your skip bin the day after you order. For orders before 10am, we can deliver a skip bin the same day.
When you make your booking we will ask for your credit card over the phone for payment. We also accept cash payments to the driver upon delivery. Account applications are available for builders.
