Frequently Asked Questions

How long can I hire the skip bin for?

Our general hire period is 7 days. An additional daily rate is charged for longer hire periods.

What does m³ mean?

Our skip bins are specified by the volume of material they can hold. 2m³ means two cubic metres.

Where can your skip bin be placed?

The skip bins are unloaded from the rear of the truck. We can put the skip on driveways, lawns, or even over small fences. A local council permit (here are the links to Hobart and Kingborough.) is required if the skip is to go on the street. Skip bins must not be moved once placed in position by us.

How can I pay?

We accept payments by credit card, cash or cheque on delivery, and electronic funds transfer (contact us for details).

Are there any charges additional to the quoted price?

Normally, no. However if the load exceeds 125kg per cubic metre, a pro rata is charged for excess weight. Additional charges can also be passed on if your skip bin contains a different or additional type of waste (other than what you specified when ordering).

Hobart Tip Recycling

Rubbish removal Hobart tip D.I.Y Vs Skip Bins

If you decide to take the waste to the tip yourself rather than skip bin hire, ring your local council making sure you are allowed to dump there and your particular type of waste.  Rubbish removal in Hobart is fairly straight forward compared to other capital cities.

Should you have restricted waste such as asbestos/oil, contact these disposal stations. You may need to contact a specialty contractor for these specific waste types.

Pro’s and Con’s of visiting the tip

  • You don’t have to pay for skip bin hire
  • You still have to pay the tip fee
  • Your car can get muddy or even bogged in Hobart
  • Damage and dirtying inside of the boot/car
  • Time spent on transport and unloading
  • There are different sections for each recycled waste type
  • Your items will not get re-used if you put in the general waste section
