The type of project you're undertaking, whether residential or commercial, will impact the skip size you choose.
You need to ask yourself:
A general rule of thumb is to focus on what is required to dispose of large items first and work down from there. If you are not entirely sure what skip bin to decide on, always go one size larger. People tend to find that the cleanup required is usually more than expected, and it's important to go a size larger as overfilling can cause issues in transportation or in the general vicinity you are working in (i.e. material falling or being blown out by wind).
Suppliers will be able to help meet your needs by assessing and recommending the best size skip for your project. To get an idea, residential cleanups such as small home renovations (e.g. bathroom/kitchen) or decluttering may require 2m³ bins. This size is equivalent to 8 wheelie bins. Larger home renovation or decluttering may require larger 4m³ bins. Large jobs such as demolitions, on the other hand, would require a minimum of a 6m³ skip.
The larger the skip bin, the more expensive. Waste types are also another factor to consider, especially items such as tyres, car batteries and mattresses. These items can be slightly more expensive, primarily due to the additional disposal processes that may need to be carried out. Skip bin prices generally start at a minimum of $290-$345 for 2m³ bins.

On average a standard skip bin hire is 7 days. Our hire suppliers offer short term and long-term hiring options depending on the provider.
Standard guidelines to follow when loading a skip bin is packing it as economically as possible. This process includes placing items in by shape and weight as to make use of the space as much as possible. This is an efficient method to avoid air pockets. Always avoid overfilling your skip bin. It is important to follow instructions from skip bin providers of what can and cannot go into your assigned skip bin type, including weight restrictions.
Whether you are allowed to place skip bins on a road depends on the state and area you are working in, it would be best to check with your local council first and ensure you are permitted to do this.
Items that should never go in skip bins include flammable liquids, food waste, asbestos, hazardous waste, insulation material of any kind, liquids (paint, oils, chemicals although dry paints in cans are OK), gas bottles and empty chemical containers or car tyres and certain batteries (unless otherwise advised by your supplier). Below we've listed everything that can and can not be disposed of in a skip bin.
