The 101 On Skip Bin Hire

The 101 On Skip Bin Hire

Whether you’re tidying a yard or garden, cleaning out a shed or garage, undergoing a small renovation, or even moving home, each activity can benefit from skip bin hire.

Skip bin hire, in case you didn’t know, isn’t reserved only for construction sites. No sirree! Skip bins are beneficial for many environments in many applications, including those mentioned above, and many more.

At 4 Waste Removals, we offer a unique skip bin service specifically for non-construction use. It’s easy to hire and more importantly, easy to load!

To gain confidence in your skip bin hire, continue reading this article. I will explain everything you need to know about our skip bin hire service, addressing both our junk skip bins and garden skip bins.

Choosing the right size skip bin

Our junk and garden skip bins both come in the same size, which makes the hiring process nice and easy. Our bins are available in 2m3, 3m3, 4m3, 5m3, 6m3, 7m3, 8m3, 9m3, 10m3, 11m3, or 12m3 skip bins. However, how our skip bin hire service differs from others is that the physical size of the skip bins is all the same. The size is measured no by their physical size, but by the marked fill levels, which are at each per square metre.

4 Waste Removals’ unique skip bin service

There is a major benefit to consumers in choosing our skip bin hire service; you don’t have to worry about hiring a skip that is too small! Simply keep filling the skip, and you will be charged the difference.

Choosing the right type of skip bin

As mentioned in the opening, we offer both junk skip bins and garden skip bins. Choosing which skip bin you need should be straightforward. Junk skip bins are perfect for any household clean-up or clear-out. Garden skip bins are strictly for 100% garden/green waste. For mixed garden and household waste, a junk skip bin is required.

Skip Bin hire period

One of the most important and overlooked elements of skip bin hire is the hire period. It’s important to understand the terms of hire and how long the hire term is. At 4 Waste, we offer a 7-day hire period for both junk and garden skip bins, which is standard.

The skip bin is delivered on day 1 of the hire and is collected on day 7. Thus, customers have six full days to fill the skip and have it ready for collection on the seventh day.

Permitted & Prohibited Waste Types

Skip bin hire comes with various terms, including permitted and prohibited waste types. Let’s look at what is allowed. Permitted waste includes the likes of electronics, household appliances, white goods, furniture, toys, sports/gym equipment, sinks, baths, mattresses and barbecues.

As 4 Waste Removals’ skip bins are specifically for non-construction use, multiple items are not allowed. Let’s look at what’s not allowed. Prohibited waste includes asbestos, carpet, carpet underlay, tires, bulk rubber, rubber matting, gas bottles, glass/mirrors, fluorescent tubes, tins of paint, concrete, tiles, bricks, soil, mulch, woodchips, and bulk paper.

It’s also important to note that the skip bins also have a weight allowance per size, which you can find out here.


4 Waste Removals’ skip bin hire service is an ideal solution for residents looking to clean-up or tidy up any aspect of their home. Specifically designed for non-construction use, they come in a range of sizes; from 2m3 to 12m3, and are suitable for general household waste, garden waste, or a mix of both.

The standard hire period is 7-days, which is ample time to fill the skip ready for collection. However, there are strict guidelines as to what waste is and permitted and prohibited.
