Common Questions about Skip Bin Hire
How full can I fill the skip bin?
All McSkips bins are to be level loaded only without any materials or items overhanging the top.
How long do I get to keep the bin?
The standard hire period for our skip bins is 7 days. However, should you require an early pick up or an extension of your hire period, this can be arranged.
How soon can you deliver my bin?
Same day service is available, but ideally we prefer 24 hours notice to get your bin out to you.
Do your bins have doors or ramps?
Yes, all our bins, except for our baby bin (1.5m³) come with an easy load ramp.
What can I put in the bin?
We accept all waste except asbestos, tyres and hazardous goods. Please refer to 'Filling your Bin'.
Where can I place the skip bin?
The skip bin can be placed anywhere on your property, provided there is access for our truck. Bins are not allowed to be placed on the road or footpath where they may obstruct other traffic, without a council permit.
What size skip will I need for my job?
In general, 1m³ is the equivalent of one 6x4 trailer load or approximately 10 wheelbarrow loads. If you have 8 trailer loads, you will require an 8m³ skip bin; if you only have one trailer load you will need our baby bin (1.5m³).
How do I pay for the skip?
We accept credit card (Visa and MasterCard), cheque and cash payments. Please discuss your payment preference with our phone operator.
Who is responsible for the skip?
You, as the purchaser of the service, are responsible for the skip bin. You are responsible for how the bin is loaded and the materials loaded in the bin even if someone else has loaded the bin for you.
Can you pick my skip bin up before the end of the 7 day period?
Yes, if you require an early pick up please contact us.
Does McSkips work in an environmentally friendly way?
Where possible we separate waste products and recycle what we can to minimize the impact on landfill.
What are your opening times?
