4 Facts About Skip Bins I Bet You Didn’t Know

4 Waste walk-in skip bins are very popular

I’m sure you’ve seen skip bins being used here in Brisbane. After all, they do make waste disposal easy and effortless – hence their popularity. Even if you haven’t hired Brisbane skip bins before, you probably know what to expect.

However, there are a few less-known facts about skip bins that you won’t know until you hire one. As the owner of 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins, a Brisbane skip hire company, today I’ll tell you some interesting facts about our skip bins that you’re probably not aware. When you’re done reading this post, you’ll know just why so many homeowners and business owners use Brisbane skip bins for waste removal.

1. Skip bins are available in various sizes

If you’ve ever noticed it, skip bins in Brisbane are available in a range of sizes. From small 2m³ skips to huge 12m³ skips; you’ll find any size skip bin to meet your waste needs.

While this is the standard for most Brisbane skip bins, at 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins, our skips are different. Instead of offering skip bins in various sizes, we work on a one-size-fits-all policy. Our skips come in a standard size but contain fill levels ranging from 2m³-12m³. This means you don’t have to worry about ever ordering a skip bin that is too big or too small.

2. There are specific skip bins for garden waste and junk waste

Many first time skip bin customers are under the impression that they can hire a skip, dump all their waste into it and be done with it. However, you should know that there are specific types of skip bins for specific types of waste.

For instance, we offer garden skip bins and junk skip bins for hire. We accept only 100% garden waste in our garden skips and a mixed waste or junk waste in our junk skip bins. This is the same with most skip hire companies in Brisbane as well. So, make sure to know what type of waste you’re disposing of and hire a skip accordingly.

3. You don’t pay for the size of the skip you hire

If you hire Brisbane skip bins from 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins, you won’t pay for the entire size of the skip. As I mentioned earlier, our skip bins feature fill levels which means that you will be changed only for the amount of rubbish you fill into our skips, not for the full size of the skip.

However be mindful, most Brisbane skip bin companies don’t offer this advantage. If a skip hire service offers skips in multiple sizes, they will charge you for the size of the skip you hire.

4. Some skip bins offer walk-in access

Special skip bins, such as those we offer, have walk-in access. This allows you to carry your waste right into the skip itself. Not only does this help you pack waste more efficiently, but it also ensures that there’s no heavy lifting involved.

Not all Brisbane skip bins will offer you walk-in access. This is something that is unique to us. So, if you want your waste disposal to be easy, effortless and affordable, look no further than us at 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins.
