4 questions to ask yourself before hiring a skip bin (and the answers)

So you’re thinking of contacting a company that offers Brisbane skip bins, huh? Great! Skip bins can make rubbish removal a hassle-free and convenient affair, which is why I guess they are so popular.

However, if you’ve never hired a skip bin before then there are a few questions you should ask yourself before you hire your skip.

As the owner of a 4 Waste who specialise in Brisbane skip bins, I know which questions you need to consider and can help you determine the answers. Therefore, read this article and you’ll then know exactly what to do when hiring a skip.

If you rubbish is piling up, then it’s time you hired a skip bin!

1. What type of skip bin should I choose?

This is the first question that you’ll need to consider before hiring a skip bin. I always tell my customers to choose the correct type of bin to meet needs. At 4 Waste, we offer two types of Brisbane skip bins – garden skip bins and junk skip bins.

We accept only 100% recyclable green waste in our garden skip bins. If you’re sure that you have only green waste to dispose, then you should hire our garden skips. For all other purposes, you can hire our junk skip bins, as we accept mixed waste in these bins.

2. What size skip bin do I need?

Brisbane skip bins come in many different sizes. You will need to choose a skip size based on the amount of rubbish you have on hand. To do this, collect your waste and make a rough estimate of what size skip bin you need. This is important because if you choose too large a skip, you’ll end up paying extra. On the other hand, if you choose too small a skip, you may need to hire a second skip to get rid of extra waste.

You’ll not face this problem if you choose 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins though. Unlike other Brisbane skip bin providers, our skip bins are unique – we have a one-size-fits-all policy. This means that regardless of the size of skip bin you choose, we will only charge you for the amount of waste you fill into our skip.

3. Where can I place a skip bin?

Customers also often ask me where they can place skip bins after it is delivered to them. This is a somewhat tricky question, as skip bin placement totally depends on the space available around your Brisbane home.

Ideally, you should place the skip on your property itself. This will make it easy for you to load rubbish into the skip. However, this may not be possible in all cases, so you may have to consider placing the skip on your driveway or yard. If nothing works out, you’ll need to place the skip bin on the road, or on your nature strip.

4. What happens if I overfill a skip bin?

I am often asked by customers about what happens when skip bins are overfilled. The Australian government has some strict rules regarding transportation. Overfilled skip bins cannot be transported, so you must never overfill a skip bin.

If you happen to overfill a one of our skip bins, then we will simply leave the extra rubbish on your property. You will need to hire a second skip or look for alternate ways to dispose your extra waste.

Conclusion:

If you have never hired a skip bin in Brisbane before, then you should first ask a few questions. Like, what type and size skip bin do you need. Look around your property and ask yourself where you can place your skip. Also estimate the rubbish you have on hand and ask yourself if you’re going to overfill a skip bin. By answering these questions, you will be ready to contact a Brisbane skip bin company and place your order.
