Skip Bins In Brisbane: Everything You Need To Know

Skip Bins In Brisbane: Everything You Need To Know

4 Waste Removals' walk-in skip bin

So, you want to find out more about skip bins in Brisbane? While you may think you only need to know the size and price, there is a lot more you actually need to know. Granted, the skip bin you choose to hire will be influenced strongly by the price of a specific size, but other facts should also guide your decision.

Skip bins come in a variety of sizes and designs, and not all skip bins are suitable for all waste types. In fact, no skips bins are suitable for all waste – even large construction skips have terms of use as to what can and cannot be placed in them! This is just one example of one of an important bit of information you know before hiring skip bins in Brisbane.

Skip Bins in Brisbane have weight restrictions

The most overlooked aspect about skip bins in Brisbane, or anywhere for that matter is the weight. While skip bins have obvious fill limitations, seldom do people consider the fact that they also have weight restrictions. Exceeding weight restrictions can cost dearly, too!

Even 4 Waste Removals have waste restrictions on our skip bins. They are resealable and for general use, won’t be exceeded. You can find out the weight restrictions for each size skip bin on our Policies page.

Skip Bins in Brisbane vary in design

We all know what a skip bin looks like, right? I bet when you picture a skip bin in your head, you see this:

standard 6m3 skip bin

Am I right? Well, as you will see from the image below, our skip bins are quite different. Unlike standard skip bins (pictured above), ours are ergonomically designed to provide easy loading. They have a rear door that opens to provide walk-in access. This unique design sets our skip bins apart from others in Brisbane.

Skip Bins in Brisbane aren’t only for construction sites

Skip bins in Brisbane may be commonly seen on construction sites, but that isn’t their only purpose. Providing your waste falls under the permitted waste types specified by the hire company, you can use a skip bin for just about anything. Moreover, there are also skip bins specifically designed for a specific use. I’m referring to our garden skip bins, which accept 100% green waste.

Skip Bins in Brisbane differ in hire periods

Another overlooked element when hiring skip bins in Brisbane is the hire period. It shouldn’t be assumed that every hire company offers the same hire term. Some skip bins in Brisbane are available on a 7-day hire, some 7-days, others a month! Of course, the longer the hire period, the higher the price.

Our skip bins are available on a 7-day hire, which is standard for skip bins in Brisbane.

Skip Bins in Brisbane accept different waste types

Ok, so I touched on this in the opening, but it needs further explanation. You see, accepted and prohibited waste types are almost guaranteed to be different from skip bin provider to provider. As a rule of thumb, construction skip bins in Brisbane will accept construction waste such as concrete, bricks, tiles etc., while junk skip bins are quite different. Junk skips, such as those here at 4 Waste Removals, will not accept construction waste and have strict guidelines as to what will and will not be accepted (you can read our terms here)


There’s a lot more to know about skip bins in Brisbane than the size and price. You need to know the weight allowance/restructions, which design is best for your needs, the hire period, and the accepted waste types. Once you have investigated these items, you can comfortably go ahead and place an order.
