5 Common Questions About Skip Bin Hire Brisbane Customers Ask Us

At SPM Skip Bins, we’re experts in skip bin hire that Brisbane domestic and commercial customers trust. With a range of skip sizes suited for different types of waste and different jobs, you can count on us for flexibility, affordability and convenience. If you’re thinking about Brisbane skip bin hire for the first time, take a look at these 5 common questions new customers ask.

What Size Skip Bin Do I Need?

The right size skip bin depends on the type of job. As a rough guide a 3m3 skip is equivalent to 3 trailer loads or about 12 household bins. If you’re unsure what size skip you need, you can contact us to chat about the job and what you need to get rid of and we’ll advise you on what you may need. When in doubt, it’s usually better to go bigger rather than smaller as it’s cheaper to pay once for a larger skip than pay for two smaller skips.

What Can’t I Put in My Skip Bin?

Most household items, building materials and green waste can go in our skip bins. Items that aren’t suitable include anything dangerous, toxic or poisonous, including:

● Asbestos or fibro-sheeting
● Batteries
● Tyres
● Fuel, oil and other liquid waste
● Gas bottles
● Oil heaters
● Fire extinguishers
● Wet paint (dry paint in cans is acceptable)
● Medical waste
● Food waste
● Household and commercial poisons
● Ammunition
● Flares
● Wet concrete
● Insulation materials
● Tree stumps exceeding 70 cm in circumference

If hazardous waste is detected, the entire load may be taken back to your home or work site. A specialist will usually be required to handle the matter outside our control. We may also need to take the skip to another disposal site where you will be charged additional fees.3.

3. How Much Can I Fill My Skip?

Our Brisbane skip bins must only be filled to the top and no higher for legal, health and safety reasons. Do not fill above rim” is painted on all sides for anyone using the skip to see. If overfilled, you may be required to remove any excess materials in your sip to allow it to be safely removed by our truck drivers. If excess waste is not removed for an extended period of time, you may be liable for additional fees according to our terms and conditions.

4. Can I Choose Where the Skip Gets Placed?

We can accommodate requests to place skip bins in particular spots for your convenience spending on access, safety and suitability. Our skip trucks require a driveway of at least 3 metres with clear access free of trees, power lines and other obstructions for our crane to lay the skip down.

Please contact us if you think your driveway will be difficult and send us pictures so we can assess your needs. While we prefer to place skips on driveways or front yards, we can also place them on the nature strip or street provided you have council approval.

5. What Happens If Other People Place Rubbish in My Skip?

Some people may see your skip bin as an opportunity to get rid of some of their waste. It is ultimately your responsibility, however, to ensure your skip bin is not misused by others while in your possession. This is one of the reasons why we prefer placing skips within your property. We recommend periodically checking the inside of your skip to ensure it hasn’t been misused.

Your property or worksite location can also affect the cost of skip bin hire services. Hiring skip bins costs around $50 per m3 per day in Queensland and $89 per m3 per day in New South Wales on average. One way to access more affordable rates is by looking for local skip bin hire contractors.
