How To Save Money On Your Skip Bin Hire

How To Save Money On Your Skip Bin Hire

At 4 Waste Removals, we offer skip bins at the most competitive prices in Brisbane. Therefore, hiring one of our budget skips is arguably the most affordable way to remove large amounts of garden waste or general household waste.

While our services are incredibly affordable, there are plenty of things you can personally do to further save on skip hire costs.

So, let’s take a look at how you can save more when you hire a skip.

1. Make sure that you have enough rubbish to remove

While you can use budget skips to remove any amount of rubbish, make sure that you have enough rubbish to remove. If you have less than 2m³ of waste to remove, it simply does not make sense to hire a skip.

While you can certainly hire a skip to remove such small amounts of waste, you will unnecessarily be paying extra. To remove such small amounts of rubbish, consider alternative methods for waste disposal, such as our hands-on waste removal service or your council-appointed bin.

2. Hire the right-sized skip

Always make sure to hire the right-sized skip to get the maximum value for your money. If you hire too small a skip, you may have to hire a second one to remove all your waste. On the other hand, if you hire too large a skip, you will unnecessarily be paying extra on skip hire costs. If you overfill a skip, you may be charged extra or worse; the excess rubbish will probably not be collected. So, ensure you estimate the amount of rubbish you want to remove and then hire a skip of the proper size.

Estimating rubbish amounts can be somewhat tricky. We offer an easy solution – ‘one-size-fits-all’ skip bins. Our budget skips come in a standard size, and they are designed to accommodate any amount of rubbish ranging from 2m³-12m³. You need not worry about overpaying as we will charge you only for the fill level of rubbish. You won’t have to worry about hiring too small a skip either.

3. Pack waste efficiently

One of the most effective ways to save on skip hire costs is by loading/packing waste efficiently into the skip. This will help you pack more waste into a smaller space, and you’ll end up with a smaller fill level.

To pack waste efficiently, start by loading large and bulky items into the skip first. Pack smaller items into the gaps between larger items as you go along. Make sure to fill rubbish evenly into a skip to reduce the fill level. You can find a more detailed explanation about loading a skip, here.

If you hire one of our budget skips, packing waste efficiently becomes much easier. Our skips are designed with a rear door that offers full walk-in access. This allows you to carry waste into the skip and pack waste more efficiently.


Hiring a skip bin is one of the most cost-effective ways to remove garden or general household waste. However, there are many things you can do to save on your skip bin hire costs. These include ensuring you have enough rubbish to remove, hiring the right sized skip and packing waste efficiently into a skip. By following these simple steps, you can make considerable savings on your skip hire costs.
