WHAT CAN I PUT IN THE SKIP BIN?
Please note as of July 1st ALL Mattresses will incur a $40 per mattress charge.
The identification of your waste type is normally fairly straight forward, however it is important because certain waste types are prohibited from being placed in skips and also in many cases, the waste type affects the price of skip services.
Therefore it is important to correctly specify your intended waste type because placement of other waste types may result in additional disposal charges after the skip is collected or may result in the bin not being collected until it is rectified – Eg asbestos in the bin with other waste.
The table below provides some guidelines. If you have any doubt as to which waste type your waste belongs, please feel free to call us today and our experienced staff will happily assist you.

What happens if I overload the skip?
We can only remove skips that are filled level to the top of the bin with no materials protruding. If the skip is overloaded, we will arrange for an additional bin to be delivered (at the customers cost) and the customer will be asked to unload the excess waste that is protruding. Overloaded bins are dangerous and create safety risks. Over loaded bins will not be collected.
