The team here at Backyard Bins has been in the rubbish removal and skip bin hire business since 2003, so we've been asked lots of questions over the years. Our invaluable experience in rubbish removal means we can help you on almost any sized project. Below you’ll find answers to some of the questions we are asked most frequently:

There are a range of items that you CANNOT put into a skip bin, these items include: asbestos, car tyres, mattresses, wet cement or concrete, any type of hazardous waste, such as chemicals, petrol, oil, paint (empty paint tins with lids on are acceptable), car batteries are to be placed inside the bin, however we will take them away for you if they are placed next to the bin and you can only put food waste in the bin if it is double bagged.

We normally rent our bins for 5 to 7 days, but since we have a flexible period, you can contact us if you need the bins for a longer time and we will not charge you for it. Some companies would keep charging extra but you will never experience this problem with Backyard Bins.

Attempting to move the bin with other vehicles such as bobcats or forklifts may damage the bins and can lead to the bin collapsing on pick up.

Our bins range from $200 to $700 depending on the size of the bin. All skip bin sizes quoted are in cubic metres and inclusive of GST. For more information visit our skip bin hire size and price guide.
