Choosing the Right Size Bin?

We realize that it can be difficult to visualize the difference between various bin sizes so we have put together the information below to help you to choose the right size bin for your rubbish removal job. Our range of skips and bins is second to none so we are confident that we can match the right size bin for your rubbish removal needs.

By spending a small amount of time packing bins properly you will get great value from the use of our bins. Good packing eliminates excess ‘air’ holes and ‘spaces’ between the items you are placing in the bin. Cut tree branches into smaller pieces and break down items such as old furniture etc.

We use our bins so when it comes to packing bins we have become very skilled and expert in getting the most into a bin. A normal household wheelie bin is a 240 litre bin which is a little over 4 wheelie bins for every cubic metre (see table below). If you were to tip a number of wheelie bins into a skip or bin you would get at least this amount into every cubic metre, remembering that the type of rubbish in wheelie bins does pack down better than the type of rubbish most likely being placed in a bin or skip.

Bins Sizes and Pricing

We have a range of specialised skips and bins such as ‘skip bins with doors‘. These are available with swinging tail-gates, drop down ramps or a wheelbarrow door. We also have certified crane bins for use with our extra large capacity Big Bins when waste and rubbish needs to be taken down from high-rise buildings or from difficult locations. With such a wide range of bins this will make your rubbish removal job so much easier.

For the larger Big Bins 20m, 25m & 30m, weight limits are calculated in the pricing of bins. Where the material in the bin does not reach the allowance a discount/rebate may be available. For loads that exceed the allowance an additional disposal fee will be charged.

Please contact our office for further information.

If you are placing heavy items in a bin please be aware that larger bins have weight restrictions. It is difficult to explain all the variables that impact on how much weight or heavy materials can be placed in a bin. A bin is considered overfull when it can no longer be lifted or carried legally or safely. In addition to this, road rules, design, carrying and lifting capacity limitations and general safety impose certain limitations we must follow to safely transport bins. It is important that if you need to dispose of these items you discuss this with our office. If you are unsure contact our office or go to our FAQ Page or Guidelines for Heavy Materials to read more.

How much rubbish that can go onto a trailer depends on how high you are willing to pack it without overloading the trailer or making the load unsafe? If you are unsure or require any additional information on the sizes or capacity of bins please contact our office.

Please Note: Bin dimensions are a near as possible guide as some differences exist when bins are manufactured, repaired or re-floored.
