Designs of Rubbish Skips

You may think that all rubbish skips in Brisbane are similar in design. But you would be wrong. While all standard rubbish skips are similar, other types vary. You need only look at the design of our unique walk-in rubbish skips compared to standard rubbish skips to see the difference. The most significant design change is at the rear of the skip. Unlike standard skips, walk-in skips feature a swing door, enabling customers to walk into the skip for effortless loading.

Types of Rubbish Skips

As mentioned above, there are many rubbish skips in Brisbane. There are standard skips, most commonly seen and used at construction sites. However, there are also mini skips, and walk-in skips, which can be used for either junk or green waste or a mix of both.

Sizes of Rubbish Skips

All rubbish skips in Brisbane generally offer similar size options; two cubic metres up to twelve cubic meters. You will find the same size options here at 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins. However, our sizing methodology does differ from other rubbish skips in Brisbane.

Typically, if you hire a 2m3 rubbish skip in Brisbane, a 2m3 rubbish skip will be delivered. That isn’t the case with 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins. Regardless of what size you order, you will receive either a 6m3 rubbish skip or an 8m3 rubbish skip. You are still only billed for a 2m3 rubbish skip. However, our service enables you extra space (which is chargeable) should you misjudge the volume of waste you have and need a larger skip.

Permitted & Prohibited Waste Types

Perhaps the most important thing to know about rubbish skips in Brisbane is what you can and can’t put in them. Unfortunately, there is no blanket rule. Each rubbish skip will have different regulations on permitted and prohibited waste types, so you must understand these before placing an order.

Hire Periods of Rubbish Skips

Lastly, rubbish skips in Brisbane offer different hire periods, affecting the price and the value for money. You will find that most rubbish skips offer a standard 7-day hire. However, some provide more and less.

Conclusion

Rubbish skips in Brisbane are incredibly convenient and for many, are an essential solution for rubbish removal. They are straightforward to hire, easy to use, and very affordable. However, it pays to know that not all rubbish skips are identical.

There is much to know about rubbish skips to ensure you select the right one for your rubbish needs. Rubbish skips come in different designs, types, and sizes.
