Everything You Need to Know About Hiring Commercial Grade Skip Bins for Your Waste Management Needs

Hiring a commercial grade skip bin is one of the most effective ways in which to manage big industrial operations or the waste generated by commercial activities such as retail, restaurant, factory and education settings.

Because these businesses and organisations produce a large amount of rubbish on a regular basis, there is a need for very large waste containers.

Services such as those provided by Best Price Skip Bins are ideal for the regular removal of waste.

Here, at Best Price Skip Bins, we offer short-term hire or long-term hire of skip bins and a variety of skip bin sizes. Waste removal needs to be planned and carried out in the most eco-friendly and affordable fashion and those requirements are front and centre with our service.

What are the advantages of using a commercial grade skip bin?

A commercial grade skip bin is a larger container than those you will normally see on domestic projects.

Commercial grade skips are much bigger and they’re made specifically to contain a variety of rubbish.

They’re used in construction projects as well as the management of factories, schools and retail outlets.

Because of their ability to hold such a lot of waste, they not only save time but also space. Storing waste at a busy facility with a lot of people on site is not safe unless the waste is contained.

Skip bin hire is ideal for commercial purposes because rubbish can be removed quickly and cleanly as soon as the container is full.

Common things you’ll dispose of and when you’ll most likely need a commercial grade skip bin for your project or waste management requirements.

The most common things which are disposed of in commercial grade skip bins are as follows.

Demolition waste

Bricks, concrete, metals, timber

Building waste

Such as packaging, sand, soil and rubble


Cardboard and plastic in addition to timber from pallets

Green waste

From food services and production

Types of Waste you can use a Commercial Skip Bin hire for.

Things from a commercial cleanout that can go into your local rubbish collection.

You may be engaged in a big commercial cleanout – for example, a factory which is being refurbished, a shop which is being re-fitted or a school which is having a facelift or building repairs.

The fact is that commercial cleanouts produce far too much waste for local rubbish collections, but a little of what is produced may certainly go into your local collection bins if there is space.

  • Cardboard
  • Plastic packaging
  • Some green waste

Things from a commercial cleanout that cannot go into your local rubbish collection.

Although local rubbish collections do provide containers for general, green and recycling, there are limits as to what may be put inside the bins. The following may not be put into your local rubbish bins.

  • Batteries
  • Oils
  • Paint
  • Chemical waste

Environmental considerations for a commercial cleanout

It’s important for anyone using a skip bin to understand what items may be put into the skip bin.

Here at Best Price Skip Bins, we’re proud of our record for our environmental efforts and we offer a range of skip bins for different waste types as this is one of the best ways to recycle.

When separated, much of what we collect can be recycled. For example, green waste can be turned into compost.

Some things such as paint and oil may not be put into skip bins but should be taken to a specialist local recycling facility.

Safety considerations for a commercial cleanout

Commercial cleanouts come with unique hazards specific to their industry. The most important consideration for staff, is that they understand how to use the skip bin, including what sort of waste to put in it.

Protective wear should be provided for all employees, including boots, head and eye protection and gloves.

Lifting heavy waste should not be attempted alone. All members of staff should be familiar with lifting techniques as prescribed by the Australian Government. You can view the recommendations made by Safe Work Australia here.
