A beginner’s guide to choosing skip bins in Brisbane

4 Waste Removals' skips are designed to offer “walk-in” access

When it comes to disposing household waste, hiring a skip bin is an excellent solution. When you hire skip bins in Brisbane, all you have to do is a request for a skip to be delivered to your location. Once your skip arrives, you simply need to load your waste into it, and professional rubbish removers will dispose it for you.

While this does sound ridiculously simple, if you’ve never hired a skip bin before, then you probably have a few doubts. Before you hire a skip bin, you need to know which type and size of skip to hire, the period for which it needs to be hired and cost.

As the owner of 4 Waste Removals, I would like to take this opportunity to help you out. Today, I will compile a brief guide to help beginners like yourself choose the right skip bins in Brisbane. So, continue reading this post, and by the end of it, you’ll have a good idea of what to consider when hiring a skip bin.

Choosing the right type of skip bin

First of all, you need to know that you cannot just dump any and all waste into a skip bin – and this will vary from provider to provider. Different types of skip bins are meant for disposing of different types of waste. If you dump the wrong type of waste into a skip bin, your waste won’t be collected.

At 4 Waste Removals, we offer two types of skip bins in Brisbane – garden skip bins and junk skip bins. We accept only 100% green waste in our garden skip bins and certain mixed waste in our junk skip bins. So, depending on the type of waste you have, hire a junk skip bin or a garden skip bin appropriately.

Choosing the right skip bin size

Another thing you need to consider before hiring skip bins in Brisbane is which size skip to get. Most skip bin providers in Brisbane offer skips ranging from 2m³-12m³ or beyond. If you choose too large a skip, you’ll unnecessarily be paying extra for the entire skip bin. On the other hand, if you choose too small a skip, you’ll have to hire a second skip to dispose excess waste. Before you hire a skip bin, it is a good idea to estimate the amount of waste you have on hand.

Alternatively, you can simply hire our skip bins at 4 Waste Removals without worrying about size. Our skips are available in two standard sizes – 8m³ and 12m³ and include fill levels going up from 2m³ to 8m³ or 12m³. We charge you only for the amount of waste you fill into our skips and not for the entire skip itself. With us, you never need to worry about selecting the wrong size skip for your needs.

Skip hire length

Once you hire a skip, you’ll have a certain period to dump your waste into it. This period is known as skip hire length. In case you need more time beyond the skip hire length, you’ll be charged extra.

Most skip bin providers in Brisbane offer their skips on a 7-day hire period, including us at 4 Waste Removals. However, the skip hire period varies from one provider to another. Therefore, make sure to confirm what the skip hire length is before hiring skip bins in Brisbane.

Cost of hiring a skip

The cost of hiring skip bins in Brisbane varies significantly from one skip bin provider to another. Typically, a 2m³ skip will cost you about $150 for a 7-day hire while a 12m³ skip will cost you about $575 for the same period.
