Tips For A Successful Skip Hire In Brisbane

Skip hire in Brisbane is always a smart move if you’re looking to dispose of residential or light commercial waste. After all, skip bins are cheap, and they make waste removal extremely easy and convenient.

However, to make your skip hire in Brisbane a successful one, you need to make some considerations. As the owner of 4 Waste Removals, a skip hire company in Brisbane, today I’ll tell you just what you need to do to make your skip hire successfully.

So, continue reading this post as I list some handy tips that’ll help you with your skip hire. Follow these tips, and your waste removal process is sure to go smoothly and efficiently.

Consider where you’ll place the skip

Before hiring a skip bin, you must consider the location where you’re planning to get the skip placed. Ideally, you should look to have the skip bin placed on your premises in an easily accessible location as this will make loading the skip much easier. But, if you don’t have enough space, you can always get the skip placed out on the kerbside or a strip of nature. You may be required to obtain a permit from your local council if you’re planning to place a skip outside your premises.

Hire the right skip type for your needs

One important thing to consider before you place an order is that you’re choosing the right skip type. Understand, you cannot dump any and every waste type into a skip bin. Certain waste types are prohibited and you should be aware of this.

For instance, at 4 Waste Removals, we accept only mixed waste and general waste in our junk skip bins and 100% green waste in our garden skip bins. We do not accept any chemical waste, construction waste or heavy waste materials in any of our skip bins. Do keep this in mind and always remember to hire the correct skip depending on your needs.

Plan to have enough time

Most companies offering skip hire in Brisbane do so on a 7-day hire basis. This means that once your skip bin arrives, you have seven days to fill it with your rubbish before the skip is collected.  Going over this time can result in additional billing.

Therefore, make sure to plan well so you have enough time to load everything into your skip within the 7-day hire period. Plan on completing filling up the skip one day before the pickup date.

Pack your skip efficiently

One of the best ways to maximise the value you get out of a skip hire is by packing your skip efficiently. To do this, load heavy and bulky items into the skip first, followed by smaller and lighter items into the gaps. Packing waste tightly into a skip will also lower your skip hire costs.

At 4 Waste Removals, our skip bins are uniquely designed to help you pack waste efficiently. Our skips come with a rear-hinged door which offers walk-in access right into the skip. This allows you to carry your waste items right into the skip, allowing for efficient packing. Also, with our walk-in skip bins, you’ll never have to lift waste over the sides of the skip walls.


To make your skip hire in Brisbane a successful one, you need to follow certain tips. Before you hire a skip, consider where you will get the skip placed. Make sure that you’re hiring the right skip type for your needs and plan so that you have enough time to load waste into the skip. Finally, ensure to pack your skip efficiently to maximise the value you get out of it.
