1800-GOT-JUNK? is your best alternative to Sydney skip bin hires

Do you need a large amount of rubbish removed in Sydney? You may be thinking “I’ll just hire a skip bin.” While this used to be the standard way to remove large amounts of rubbish, times have changed. There are many things to consider before hiring a skip bin in Sydney.

The challenges of hiring a skip bin in Sydney

Placement, permits and liability

When hiring a skip bin, Sydney residents generally need to place the bin on private property. If you don’t have enough space or access to your property for a skip truck to fit through, then the skip bin will have to be placed on common ground. To do so, you’ll have to contact your local council for approval and payment (some councils even require it for private property). As the customer, it is your responsibility to check the skip provider’s credentials and the requirements of your particular council.

Once legal issues are sorted out, you must confirm who is liable for any damage caused by the bin while it is sitting outside your home--this may include grass or plant damage, concrete/walkway damage, or leaking contaminants down the street or drains.

Loading the bin

Now it’s time to physically drag all the rubbish from around your property and into the bin, within the timeframe as stated by the skip bin provider (and before strangers fill up your skip with their rubbish!). Don’t forget to leave out any items the skip bin company will not

take, which may include mattresses, tree stumps, tyres, and other items that need to be recycled or dismantled.

Most skip companies have different bins for different items and won’t accept a ‘mixed load’. You usually have to sort and organise your junk before ordering the skip.


Once all the loading has been done, you need to organise the pick-up of the skip and pay any surcharges, then clean up around where the skip bin had been sitting and also any dirt and rubbish dropped between the skip and your property.

After all that hard work, make yourself a cup of tea, sit down and promise to yourself not to go through that again. Is there is another way to get rid of your junk next time?
