Skip Bin Hire - FAQs

Some of the most frequently asked questions are below. Before booking your bin, read through them carefully as you might find some very useful information. If you are still unsure, please contact us so we can help you directly with your enquiry.

The size of the bin depands on the size of the job. We have suggested a few common jobs and the most common bin sizes below.

Remember this is just an guide, you will need to consider the size of your waste pile.

Measure its length, width and height and multiply together to find the cubic mesure. For e.g 3.0m length x 1.5m width x 0.8m height = 3.6m3 which means you will need a 4 cubic metre bin.

This all depends on the waste type you have, our guidlines will let you know what you can put in the bin. If you are unsure, contact us either via our online chat on the right of the page, or by email, or contact form. We are quick to respond to any queries!

It is very important that you do not place and transport restricted, toxic or hazardous waste. This includes wet paints, chemicals, pesticides and herbicides and any other toxic or chemical waste.

Other items include dangerous goods, asbestos, batteries that contain liquid, putrescible waste or any liquids.

The website does not service asbestos at the moment but will in the future. If you require asbestos removal, please contact us and we will try to find you a quote.

Do not place any tyres or matresses without asking the supplier that you have booked with first. These will require a different disposal method and will need to be flagged with the supplier.

Depending on the waste type you have selected for the bin you will find in the guidlines specific items that you can and can't put in the bin. Please refer to them prior to booking.

Remember not all suppliers allow for this so you might not always find a quote. It's best to book the day before.

Although most of the time our suppliers abide by our customer's request for delivery times, we of course cannot guarentee all bins be delivered at the time specified by the customer. Please allow for a window of 1 - 2 hours on either side of your specific request as there could be a delay in any previous deliveries.
