If you’re considering availing mini skip hire but want to know more about the entire process, then continue reading. I will explain the entire process from initiating contact with 4 Waste to where your rubbish ends up.

Stage One – Hiring the Mini Skip

The first step in mini skip hire is to make contact with the provider to place an order. With 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins, we make this incredibly easy. You can easily hire a mini skip online or over the phone by calling 0413 333 330.

If you choose online mini skip hire, you need only select the type of skip, that being a Junk skip or a Garden skip, and the size. Our mini skip hire is available for 2m3 through to 20m3 of waste. Once you have selected the type and size, you can then allocate a delivery date and address.

Stage Two – Mini Skip Delivery

Brisbane Skip Company

Our mini skip hire uses a small 2-tone truck to transport the skips. This means we can position our skips in spaces that larger vehicles wouldn’t be able to access. You can also add a notice to allocate a preferred delivery location during the booking process.

We operate on a 7-day hire period. Thus, once delivered, you then have six full days to load the mini skip with you waste before it we collect it on day seven. The unique design of our mini skips makes this process as easy as wheeling in your waste through the back door, which can open 270 degrees.

Stage Three – Mini Skip Collection

While the mini skip hire ends for the customer at the time of collection, it continues for us. Our job doesn’t stop until we have responsibly disposed of your waste.

When the skip bin leaves your premises, it then makes its way to the closet waste management facility, which are in the Brisbane suburbs of Nudgee Beach, Willawong, Ferny Grove and Chandler.

Once the waste reaches the facility, it is then vigorously sorted into recyclable and non-recyclable waste. The recyclable waste is sent to a special recycling facility, where it is processed for reuse. Biodegradable waste, such as organic and green waste, is turned into compost and uses as mulch.

For all other waste, which cannot be recycled, it’s journey ends at the Rochedale landfill. It’s important to note that waste in landfill produces gas emissions that are harmful to the environment and can take centuries to break down. Hence, the importance of being proactive in recycling to reduce landfill gas emissions.


If you’re wondering or curious how Mini Skip Hire works, it’s a straightforward process. The first step is the hiring stage; contact 4 Waste Walk Walk-In Skip Bins and decide which size skip you need and the delivery date. Once the mini skip arrives, you have four days to load the skip before collection on day 5.

But, the process doesn’t end there – for you, it does, but not for your waste. Once the skip leaves your home or premises, it takes a journey starting at a Brisbane waste management facility, where it is sorted into recyclable and non-recyclable waste. Non-recyclable waste is sent to a landfill facility, and recyclable waste is sent to a recycling facility. Here, the recyclable waste is sorted into waste type and processed for reuse.
