What is a Mini Skip Bin?

A mini skip bin is the smallest size of skips you can hire. Their size ranges from 2m to 4m and usually contains the equivalent of 8 to 12 wheelie bins worth of rubbish. There are many situations where mini skip bins are the perfect solution for rubbish removal. If you’ve never hired a skip bin before, the ultimate purpose is the easy removal of waste from your property.

Why use a mini skip bin?

We’ve all had moments where the urge for spring cleaning comes upon us and it’s time to do that deep clean on the garage, overgrown gardens, or neglected storage areas in your home that you’ve been putting off for years.

At first, it’s just a few bags of rubbish going into your wheelie bins, but you may quickly realise there’s too much for your poor wheelie bins to handle! You could do multiple trips to the tip if you have a trailer or tray back ute. But there is an easier, more cost-effective solution.

By planning ahead and hiring a skip bin, you can have all of your waste disposal done with the least amount of effort. Just place all the rubbish into the skip and watch it be transported off your property and out of your hair.

What kind of waste can you put in them?

Customers can fill mini skip bins with a range of different household waste including green waste – branches, dirt, leaves, small tree stumps, and any other greenery that would normally fit in your wheelie bin.

You can also use skip bins for construction materials from a home renovation or landscaping including cut-offs from paving stones, or garden edging. Nails, wiring, concrete, tiles, brick, rubble and debris are all good to go, but hazardous waste, food scraps, all oils, wet paint, contaminated soil, toxic and flammable material, batteries and asbestos are not allowed in your mini skips.

Mini skip bins are not for disposal of hazardous waste such as asbestos. Visit asbestos.sa.gov.au for more information.

Mini skips for construction

A building site seems like a mighty big task for the humble mini skip bins, but there is a place for them on the building site too. Depending on the size of the block you are working on, or the shape of the road, a mini size skip bin may be the only option for your building site.

Customers who are working on a construction site have found that using a mini size skip bin has been the best options to move loads of waste from their job site.

Skip hire trucks need a 3m clearance to get in and out safely and for the pick-up and drop-off of the skip bin. There is an option to have your skip placed on the road, but you need prior council approval for this, otherwise, you can use the driveway or land on the front of your block.

So, if you’re at the end of a cul-de-sac or have an odd-shaped block, or need to have your bin placed in a tight area, if we can get the truck in with the 3m clearance that’s a good start but if the bin size is too big, your best option is choosing a mini skip bin for your rubbish removal.

Why choose a mini skip bin over a larger one?

Mini skip bins are just as their namesake suggests – they are smaller in size than our other skip bins. You might find that the site you’re working on doesn’t have room for a large size skip bin- for example, you could be working in an apartment block, in the city or a townhouse complex. A big skip bin would get in the way of traffic and be of no use to you, as well as inconvenient to other tenants or business owners.

Luckily for you, your needs have already been thought of and mini skips exist for exactly this. You can arrange a mini skip bin hire for your rubbish removal in urban areas and not have to worry about upsetting your neighbours.

Or, depending on the size of your rubbish load, larger skip bins might be unreasonable for your needs. You can save on price when you hire mini skip bins and use that money for something sweeter, like a massage after all of the heavy-duty cleaning you’ve been doing.
