How to Choose the Right Skip Bin Size and Type

How to Choose the Right Skip Bin Size and Type

When it comes to disposing of waste, skip bins are a convenient solution. However, it’s important to choose the right skip bin size and type. Whether you’re renovating your home, clearing out your garage or working on a construction project, this blog post from GT Skips offers some useful tips on how to choose the right skips in Melbourne for your specific requirements.

Assess Your Waste Volume

Start by estimating the amount of waste you need to dispose of. This will give you a rough idea of the skip bin size you require. Be sure to consider the length and height of the waste as well as any bulky or heavy items. Skip bins come in various sizes, ranging from small 2 cubic metre bins to huge 33 cubic metre bins. If you’re unsure about the exact size you need for bin hire in Melbourne, it’s best to choose a slightly larger bin to avoid running out of space.

Consider the Type of Waste

Different skip bins are designed to handle specific types of waste. For general household waste, a standard skip bin will suffice, but if you’re disposing of heavy materials such as concrete, bricks or soil, you may need a heavy-duty bin with reinforced walls.

Check Local Regulations

It’s important to familiarise yourself with local regulations regarding skip bin placement and waste disposal. Some areas may have specific guidelines on rubbish bin hire, or even specific permits required for certain waste materials. Ensure you comply with these regulations to avoid any legal issues.

      thumb Stephanie K
    • We've had an 8m skip collected today, and the service has been excellent. From the 1st call to enquire about getting a skip for household clean out for a move, until today, we've been completely satisfied with GT Skips. We were given an option to extend the time we had the skip, but didn't need to, but it was very considerate of them to provide this option. Highly recommend this company.

      thumb Jo Birznieks
    • Prompt and professional. Bin hire was about $50 more than competitors, but decided to go with GT as they provided me with confidence that the items will be sorted and recycled. Called before they were dropping off the skip bin and before they collected. Would hire again
