Answering your Questions

When choosing a skip bin, you need to consider the size, type and weight of waste you’ll be disposing. For example, general household waste will require a smaller skip bin than construction waste.

You also need to consider the space you have available on your property as well as any access issues.

The cost of hiring a skip bin varies depending on the size and type of bin you require as well as the duration of hire. For more information about our prices please contact us today.

Any bin being placed on public land or council property in Newcastle Council requires a council permit at a cost of $82 valid for 28 days which we organise on your behalf. 

Contact your local council for their bin placement requirements for public lands for their local council’s policies.

If you overfill your skip bin, we will not be able to collect it. The extra rubbish will have to be removed by you or someone else at your own cost. Overfilling a skip bin can be dangerous as it may collapse, injuring anyone nearby. It is important to follow the fill line on the bin to avoid overfilling. If you are unsure, contact us for guidance.

The hirer is completely responsible for the skip bin during the time that it is located on their site.

We accept cash, credit card, EFT. Payment is required on or before delivery.
