What you need to know about hiring a Skip Bin in Adelaide
Hiring a skip bin is a quick and easy way to manage your waste for any size project. While it is an easy process that our team will help you through, there are a few things you have to remember when hiring a rubbish skip in Adelaide. These can be boiled down to three things: where you want to put your skip, what you want to put in it and how much you can fill it.
Skip Bin Location
It’s important to know exactly where you intend to put your skip bin as it will determine whether or not you require permission from your local council. If you want to put your skip on your private property, then you do not need approval so long as it does not obstruct any public land or access. If you wish to put your skip on public land, then you will need to apply for a permit from your local council. It’s essential that you do so before the arrival of your skip to ensure that you are not breaking any local regulations and won’t incur fines.
Skip Bin Content Restrictions
While a skip bin is a great solution to disposing of most types of rubbish, there are certain materials and substances that you are restricted from putting in skips in Adelaide. The following items cannot be placed in your skip:
- Asbestos or construction materials that contain asbestos
- Car tyres
- Electrical appliances (electric stove, freezer, dishwasher, computer, and television etc)
- Fluorescent light bulbs
- Medical waste (needles, syringes etc)
- Petrol, solvent, and paint
Skip Bin Filling Regulations
In Adelaide it is illegal to transport skip bins that are filled beyond the dimensions of the container. This is to ensure that all waste is confined within the skip and won’t leave the bin during transit, endangering other drivers and littering the roads. As such, we cannot accept any bin filled beyond capacity. Any excess waste will be removed from the skip and picked up in a second trip. To avoid paying for extra transportation, we highly recommend choosing a larger size than your estimates to account for any unplanned additional waste.
What you need to know about renting a skip bin in Adelaide
There are just three key things you need to consider when you rent a skip bin in Adelaide:
1. What you plan to put in your bin
Not all waste can be put in a skip. As mentioned above, certain hazardous waste is prohibited from being put in a skip in Adelaide. You are also not allowed to dispose of all waste in all bins. While a ‘builder’s skip’ can take construction material, a green waste skip can only take organic materials. To find out which skip is optimal for your project, contact our team.
2. The size skip bin you need
To determine the right bin for your needs it’s important to estimate the amount of waste you will create. You should consider the size, duration and type of project being conducted. We also recommend hiring a skip larger than your estimates to account for any excess rubbish created. This will prevent the need to pay for extra transportation if your waste exceeds the limits of your bin. For more information, check out the skip bin sizes page.
3. Your budget for skip bin hire
The total cost of your skip bin hire is calculated by three factors: the size of the bin, the duration of the hire period and the number of transportations required. To help figure out your budget, we provide free quotes for all of our services. Just give us a call or fill out the online quote request form.
