Thankfully, skip bins in Brisbane provide an efficient and cost-effective way to handle this problem!

What are Skip Bins?

what are skip bins

Skip bins are lifesavers when it comes to waste management. From households to businesses and construction sites, they provide a great way to transport large volumes of waste material at once. Plus, they come in various sizes, so you can easily find something that meets your needs!

Our skip bins are slightly different from your typical skip bins in Brisbane. We deliver a 6 or 8-cubic meter skip bin, regardless of the size bin you hire. This allows customers to add more waste (at a small additional fee) if they find they ordered a skip bin smaller than they should have.

For example, say you hire a 5-cubic-meter skip bin from us. We will likely deliver an 8-m2 skip bin to your premises. This allows you to fill the skip to the 5 m2 mark. However, if you find you have 7 cubic metres of waste on your hands, you can place it all in the skip and pay for the additional 2 cubic metres of waste, which is much cheaper than having to hire a 2-cubic-metre skip bin (no additional delivery and collection fees).

Of course, if you have more than 8 cubic metres of waste, just call us, and we’ll keep delivering more skip bins (with no additional delivery and collection fees) until you have gotten rid of all your waste.

The Advantages of Using Our Skip Bins in Brisbane

There are several advantages to using our skip bins for waste management in Brisbane.


Our skip bins offer loads of convenience; there’s no need to stress over how you’ll get your waste to the tip. Simply throw it in our skip bin, and we’ll come and pick it up. Moreover, our Brisbane skip bins offer walk-in access, making it even easier to load. And once you’ve finished loading the skip, we’ll take care of the whole process. We’ll take it to a Brisbane landfill or recycling centre, ensuring your waste is disposed of in an eco-friendly way. Talk about easy peasy!


Skip bin hire is worth it when you consider the cost. Compared to paying for a rubbish removal service or using your own transportation to take waste to the landfill, skip bins are much more affordable – you just pay for the skip and its disposal. No need to worry about labour costs or fuel – all taken care of!

For example, if you want to get rid of a bunch of garden waste, skip bin hire might be your best bet – it’s cheaper than hiring a gardener or using your own vehicle to drive the waste away. Plus, you only pay for the skip and the pickup/disposal service.


There’s no quicker way to remove large quantities of waste than with a skip bin. Skip bins are designed to easily contain large amounts of material and make it easy to get rid of it and transport it in one go. This way, you don’t have to worry about trying to get rid of it in your wheelie bin over the course of many weeks or making additional trips – everything’s taken care of at once!

Environmental Responsibility

Our Brisbane skip bin hire is not only cost-effective, but it also helps reduce your carbon footprint and promotes eco-friendly practices. With both junk skip bins and garden skip bins on offer, you can separate your junk from green waste – which reduces the amount of waste that ends up in landfills. For instance, we take all of our green waste to a composting and recycling centre to ensure it is recycled and reused.

Plus, using our skip bins helps reduce the need for multiple trips to and from the tip – further reducing your carbon footprint!

How to Choose the Right Skip Bin Size

While we deliver only a 6- or 8-cubic-meter skip bin, regardless of the size you choose, and allow you to continue filling our skip bins (at an additional fee) if you have more waste to get rid of, the size of the skip you hire does matter. It matters because you don’t want to waste money by hiring a larger skip bin than you need.

A general rule of thumb is to select a bin one size larger than you think you need. But my tip is to order a skip bin that you know will be slightly smaller than your needs. This might sound like strange advice, but with our billing structure, it works in your favour. As mentioned earlier, if you need more space, you only pay the difference in size, not the full cost of hiring a second skip bin. So, this is a surefire way to avoid hiring a bigger skip bin than you need, which is water down the drain.

To determine the correct skip bin size for your project, consider the following factors:

  • The amount of waste you need to dispose of
  • The type of waste you will be disposing of (e.g., household waste, light renovation waste, green waste)

Tips for Using Skip Bins in Brisbane

Here are a few tips to keep in mind when using skip bins in Brisbane:

  • Check with your local council to see if you need a permit to place a skip bin on the street or on council land.
  • Don’t overfill the skip bin. If the waste is not properly contained within the bin, the driver will likely instruct you to remove excess waste, or they won’t collect it as it can be a safety hazard on the roads.
  • Don’t place prohibited items in the skip bin, such as hazardous materials, electronics, or tires. (You can find a detailed list of our permitted and prohibited items here)
