How Long Can I Have The Skip Bin For?
For our domestic customers, the price quoted will include the hire of your rubbish skip bin for 1 to 7 days. This is a grace period and you can have the bin collected earlier by phoning for a pick-up. Otherwise, the bin will be collected on the seventh day, morning, or afternoon. If you don’t manage to fill your skip bins within the 7 day period, call us before the due date and we will advise our extra hire charge fees, if applicable.
Asbestos Disposal Regulation
For many domestic rubbish removal jobs, you may come across asbestos. You should always be handling these materials with care. You’ll be able to dispose of the asbestos into domestic skip bins yourself if the materials equal to less than 10m2, as long as you’re wearing the right protective equipment including a respirator and coveralls. If you need to get rid of more than 10m2 of asbestos at home, you’re going to need to hire a licensed professional who has experience in removing asbestos.
- You won’t be able to mix asbestos with other general waste that you have to dispose of. If you have asbestos sheets you must wrap them up with black plastic and secure the edges with gaffer tape so there are no holes anywhere. You can only have 10-15 asbestos sheets at a time, so be careful when dealing with large quantities.
- If you need to fill a full bin of asbestos the skip itself needs to be wrapped fully in strong black plastic with the wrapped sheets placed in the skip. All of this black plastic needs to be firmly secured so that thee is no asbestos showing and nothing will blow around or come loose during transport.
Please note that we will not be able to collect your skip bin if the disposal regulations aren’t adhered to.
What Size Skip Bin Should I Hire?
If unsure of the domestic skip bin size you require, you can discuss this at the time of your inquiry. However, the easiest way to ensure you get the right size rubbish bin for your purposes is to ascertain how many small trailer loads of rubbish you might have, then look at the table below. Whether you’re looking for a mini skip or something much larger, we can help.
This is a useful first step in narrowing down your search for domestic skip bins so that you can be more confident that you’re choosing a bin that’s not going to overflow with waste as you’re filling it. If you are still unsure, we’ll always recommend that you go the size up to take the stress out of filling up your skip bin.
What is a Cubic Metre?
One cubic meter is the amount that would be held in a cube that is one meter wide by one meter high by one meter deep.

Delivery Times and Pickups for your Skip
We endeavor to offer same-day service and operate Monday to Saturday, as well as some public holidays. Call us early and we can deliver your skip bin the same day. Pre-ordering your skip is advisable, however. Once the skip is filled, call us to organize pickup, otherwise, a normal turnaround is seven days.
How to Load Your Skip
A common-sense approach to not overloading your rubbish skip will ensure the driver can efficiently cover the load to avoid spillage and hazardous situations. Most skip bin companies advise customers to load levelly. However, if you have bulky items such as furniture, the load can still be secured if it is over the top of the bin by a small amount.
Green waste can be compacted down so you get the maximum use of the skip.
Please note: If the skip is damaged in any way while under hire (fire damage etc.), additional charges may be charged for repairs.
Is the waste in the skips recycled?
Kwik Skips always keeps an eye on our environmental footprint and we dispose of all waste in a responsible way. Our goal is to operate in a way that keeps both the environment and our clients happy. Through our actions of picking up and disposing of the rubbish to the landfill facilities, we always make sure to recycle appropriate materials where we can.
These landfill facilities are then responsible for ensuring that they stick to the strict guidelines and regulations of the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment. As the leading experts in skip bin services in Perth, every time you hire through Kwik Skips you can be certain that you’re helping to look after the environment through your waste disposal choices.
How do I pay for the skip bin?
