If your question is not answered here, please feel free to give us a call and one of our friendly staff will assist you.

To place the bin on the road or footpath, you (the property owner) will need to apply to the local council for a permit. Different councils have slightly different laws, so you are best to contact your council for more information.

Generally we hire our bins out for 7 days, however you may have it for longer or shorter periods, although additional charges may apply for longer periods.

Yes, please be sure to read through the Terms & Conditions page before hiring a skip bin.

Unfortunately, from delivery to pickup, you are responsible for the skip bin and what goes into it. It helps to cover the skip bin with a tarp, and only have the skip bin for the days you need it.

Generally you can fill your skip up to the rim with your waste. Some materials are particularly heavy like sand, soil, concrete and dirt, so for these we are restricted by weight rather than size.

For more information, read through the Materials page.

A cubic meter is a unit of volume, equal to a cube, 1m x 1m x 1m.

1 cubic meter is equivalent to 1000 liters or 35.3 cubic feet.

Almost anything can be put into a Jumbo skip bin, including green waste, construction waste and general rubbish. Please read the Materials section for more information, as there are some restricted items, and additional fees may apply.

We can provide standard skip bins from 3 cubic meters to 8 cubic meters, plus a variety of specialised bins. Check the Sizes page for a comparison of the standard bins, or give us a call if you are after something more specialised.

We have hired skips from a few companies over the years and without a doubt this company is the best we have used. They are professional and reliable. They turn up when they say they will and their prices are very competitive. I couldn’t recommend them higher. We currently have our 4th skip bin with this company, and never had an issue. Will definitely give them a call next time we need one.
