Wherever possible or unless instructed otherwise we will attempt to place the skip bin on private property. If you do need to place a skip bin on council property you may require a permit. To view your local councils regulations visit our Local Council Permits page.
All of our bins clearly state “Fill to rim only”. Skip bins should never be filled above the rim. The skip bin should be loaded carefully to avoid materials falling out while in transit. We can get fined for unsafe and/or overweight loads. These fines/charges will be the hirers’ responsibility.
If the skip is overloaded or has excessive items protruding we will be unable to remove the bin from your property and extra charges for a failed pick up attempt may be charged. If you do not have enough room in your skip bin, you may consider reloading it or ordering an extra bin.
As a general rule we request that you leave a clearance area of about 4 metres in height and 3 metres in width for problem free unloading. Our trucks are quite large so please ensure there are no sharp bends, overhanging branches or electrical wires restricting access. Our truck dimensions (single axle) are: Width 2.7m x Height 3.0m x Length 7.2m.
