How high can I fill the skip bin?
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.
How long can I keep the skip bin?
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.
How much notice do I need to give when ordering my skip bin?
We can deliver your skip bin the day after you order. For orders before 10am, we can deliver a skip bin the same day.
How do I pay for the skip bin?
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.
Where can I place the bin?
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 – North Sydney, Inner West, Hornsby, Woollahra, Waverley and Northern Beaches.
