Tips and Tricks When Ordering a Skip Bin in Brisbane

Ordering a skip bin can be a convenient way to dispose of large or small amounts of waste, but there are a few tips and tricks to keep in mind to ensure the process goes smoothly. 

Below is a list of tips and tricks for ordering your next skip bin in Brisbane: 

  1. Determine the size you need: Skip bins come in different sizes, so it’s important to assess how much waste you need to dispose of before ordering. Ordering a bin that’s too small can result in overfilling, while ordering one that’s too big can waste money. 
  2. Know what can and can’t be disposed of: There are restrictions on what can be put into a skip bin, so make sure you understand what’s allowed before ordering. For example, hazardous materials like asbestos, chemicals, and batteries are typically prohibited. 
  3. Choose a reputable company: Look for a skip bin company with a good reputation and positive reviews. This will ensure that you get a reliable service and that your waste is disposed of responsibly. 
  4. Check for any additional fees: Some skip bin companies charge additional fees for things like overfilling, extended rental periods, and delivery outside of certain areas. Make sure you understand all the costs involved before ordering. 
  5. Plan for the placement of the skip bin: Make sure you have enough space for the skip bin and that it’s placed in a convenient location for loading. If you’re placing the bin on the street, you may need to obtain a permit from your local council. 
  6. Consider recycling options: If you have recyclable materials, check if the skip bin company offers recycling services. This can be a more sustainable option and may save you money on disposal fees. 

By following these tips and tricks, you can ensure a hassle-free experience when ordering a skip bin.
