What you need to know about hiring a Skip Bin in Sydney

Hiring a skip in Sydney is a great way to deal with your rubbish while following the law and preserving the environment. However, there are still a number of local and citywide regulations that you have to keep in mind when it comes to your skip bin. The main restrictions are based around where you place the skip bin, what you put in it and how much you fill it. 

Skip Bin Location

If you’re planning to have the skip placed on your private property, then you generally don’t need to get approval from the council to do so. As long as the skip won’t be interfering with any public space then most council regions won’t require that you seek a permit. Each local government area has its only unique regulations so it is recommended that you confirm with your council before hiring the skip to ensure no permit is required. 

To place a skip on public land you will need to apply for a permit from your local council. Most councils have a quick and easy application process, though the specific procedure will vary. Generally you will be required to place the skip in a parking space where you will be required to pay a fee for the duration of your skip hire. To find out more about skip bin placement regulations, visit your local council website. 

Skip Bin Content Restrictions

Skip hire allows you to easily and safely dispose of most types of domestic and commercial waste. However, Sydney prohibits the disposal of hazardous, environmentally harmful or dangerous materials in standard skips. This law is in place to ensure that materials that pose a risk to people or the environment do not contaminate waste facilities or the environment around the skip. These banned materials include asbestos, acids, oils, flammable or corrosive liquids. It is also prohibited to dispose of food waste, or hazardous water in any bin. 

Skip Bin Transport Regulations

It is illegal to transport skip bins that are filled beyond the rim or have items protruding from the confines of the bin. For this reason it is essential that you do not fill your skip bin beyond capacity. We recommend hiring a bin that is a size larger than you calculate to adjust for any additional waste that may be created during your project. If you overfill your skip we will be required to remove the excess material and perform a second trip. 

Skip Bin Sizes for hire in Sydney

We offer a complete range of skip bin sizes to meet your needs for any type of project. From mini skip bins to help with small projects, all the way up to maxi skips for commercial endeavours. 

Mini Skip Bin Hire

Our mini skip bins are 2m3 and are ideal for short term or small-scale projects. Roughly the size of 25 large garbage bags, these skips are small and compact while still having room for plenty of rubbish. 

Midi Skip Bin Hire

The midi skip bins come in either 3m3 or 4m3 sizes. This midi skip size is perfect for home projects and will generally fit in either a backyard or front yard. The dimensions of our midis allows you to dispose of plenty of waste without the need to apply for a council permit to place it on public land. 

Standard Skip Bin Hire

The standard skip bin sizes are the ones you have most likely seen around construction sites or commercial projects. We offer standard skips in both 6m3 and 8m3 sizes. Our standard skips are equipped with drop-down doors which allow you to easily access the skip with a wheelbarrow. The 6m3 skip is known as the ‘builder’s skip’ as they allow you to dispose of most building materials. This size will be perfect for most large domestic or standard commercial needs. However the  8m3 size is preferable for any larger project. 

Maxi Skip Bin Hire

Our maxi skip bin range includes both 9m3 and 10m3 sizes. The maxi skips are the best choice for any large-scale project or anything involving bulky items. Our maxis are popular with projects that tend to escalate in scale as they offer enough space to avoid needing to hire a second skip.

What you need to know about renting a skip bin in Sydney

Before you hire your skip bin in Sydney, there are just three key things you need to consider:

1. What you plan to put in your bin

Not all bins are equal and not all rubbish can be placed in all skips. For this reason it’s important to know what kind of rubbish you intend to dispose of. Construction material and green waste can be put in a builder’s skip, but not in mini skips. Hazardous materials require a specialty skip to dispose of safely. To find out which skip is best for your project, contact our team

2. The size skip bin you need

Correctly estimating the amount of waste you will create is important to determining the right skip for your needs. Once you’ve made a calculation, it’s recommended to choose a slightly larger size to avoid overfilling and prevent the need to hire a second skip. To learn more about our full range of bins, visit the skip bin sizes page

3. Your budget for skip bin hire

The final cost of your skip bin hire will depend on the size of the skip, the duration of the hire period and the amount of times you need us to empty the skip. We provide free quotes for our services, so it’s easy to find out how much it will cost. Simply get in touch or fill out the online quote request form.
