What Can Go in a Skip Bin

Considering the vast amount of rubbish removal options available, it’s very important that you choose an option that suits your specific rubbish removal needs. Skip bins are one of the most highly recommended rubbish disposal options, as they can safely store large volumes of rubbish that can be carried away by a truck. However, there are particular types of waste that legally cannot be put into skip bins. Knowing what can go in a skip bin is essential.

    • We would like to thank you for your professional help with delivery of the big bins that my grand son ordered for the junk.. the gentleman that delivered the bins placed it exactly on the boards that we had put down for it, hence no grass was destroyed.

      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
