WHAT CAN & CAN’T GO IN A SKIP BIN

If you need to hire a skip bin for residential or industrial rubbish removal, it’s important to understand what you are disposing of. Certain waste categories cannot be mixed, or put into skip bins at all.  

Most waste categories can be mixed into a single bin, however it’s sometimes more cost effective to separate certain recyclable waste types (e.g. dirt or brick and concrete) as long as you have the quantity to justify ordering more than one bin. If you are unsure – just ask and we will help you.

Our detailed guide can tell you exactly how waste categories are defined, which will help avoid extra fees from disposal facilities or rubbish removal companies. Some categories, such as Bricks and Concrete, or Dirt and Clay, are very strictly defined by disposal facilities, so always check!

If you are still unsure about what you can put in your skip bin, please feel free to contact us, and one of our friendly representatives will be able to assist you.
