Looking to hire a skip bin but unsure what materials you can put in it? Lucky for you, almost anything can be placed into a skip. However, there are a few exceptions. In fact, most items listed in the ‘can’t put in a skip bin’ list are things that either can’t be disposed of in traditional ways because they are hazardous or they are items which can easily be included in your wheelie bin or as part of curbside collection. So, let’s get into it.
What You Can Put In
General Waste – Toys, clothes, carpet, broken or unwanted possessions
Appliances – Microwaves, stoves, blenders, barbeques, fridges (must be de-gassed first)
Furniture – Tables, chairs, couches, lamps, cabinets etc.
Office Waste – Paper, boxes, stationery, partitions etc
Light Construction Waste – Wood, gyprock, metal
Heavy Construction Waste – Concrete & bricks only
Accepted Green Waste – Woodchips, branches, grass clippings, fence palings, bark
What You Can’t Put In
Food Waste – Fruit, vegetables, meat, takeaway food etc
Hazardous Items –Asbestos, explosive, toxic, noxious or dangerous materials
Liquids – Hazardous and non-hazardous liquids including paint, pesticides, oil and poisons (even in sealed containers)
Tyres – Hard to process. We recommend taking your tyres to tyre recyclers directly.
Batteries – All battery types from AAA right through to car batteries
Excluded Green Waste – Human or animal waste, soil, sand, clay, rocks, turf, tree trunks
Other Helpful Skip Bin Tips
- If any of the ‘can’t’ items are placed in the skip bin, the load will be contaminated, and you will be responsible for the costs involved in separating the hazardous materials from the rest of the rubbish.
- Place heavier items on top to prevent smaller and lighter items from being blown away.
- Avoid overfilling your skip bin. An extra charge may be applicable.
- Skip bins should be covered when unattended to prevent materials within from being dislodged or blown out of the bin.

Is this is your first time hiring out a skip bin? If so, welcome! We’re so glad you’ve come to our website to have a look around. We’re pretty sure we’ll have what you’re looking for, but before you begin the hiring process, there are a few things you need to keep in mind first, particularly when it comes to choosing the ideal skip bin size.
We get it, you don’t want a skip bin that’s too big to avoid wasting money, and you don’t want it to be too small in case it’s not big enough to serve your needs.
To help you out here, we’ve come up with a few tips to keep in mind when picking the skip bin type and size you need.
Skip Bin Types
There are various types of skip bins in the market today that you can choose between, each of which is constructed differently with its own unique features and purpose.
Here at Cheapa Skips, the skip bins we hire out are called Marrel skip bins. Our skip bins are manufactured from tough and hardy stainless steel. We’ve also made the point of painting each of our bins with a distinctive yellow colour so that the skip bin can be seen clearly. They also match our branding colours too.
Marrel skip bins are the most common type of skip bins in the market, and with good reason. They do the job, and they do it well!
If you’ve been searching around, you’ve probably come across a few other skip bin types too.. For very large quantities of rubbish, hook lift skip bins are a popular choice. Mobile skip bins can also be found which are often used for smaller jobs.
At Cheapa Skips, with sizes ranging from 3 meters right up to 6 meters, we have what it takes to handle almost any sized job.
Our Skip Bin Sizes
We’ve got skip bins available in 4 convenient sizes ranging between 3 and 6 meters with the ability to hold between 3 tonnes and 6 tonnes.
While every skip bin size can hold practically all waste materials, the largest size we have (6 meters) is the best choice if you want to dispose of large items like white goods and furniture.
Take a look at our Skip Bin Sizes page, where you will find a full list of details about every skip bin size we have available.
How Much Waste Do You Have?
Get a good visual on the quantity of waste you need to be removed, and from there you should be able to get a pretty good idea of the size you require. Do keep in mind that some items that may seem large and bulky may not take up as much room as you think. You may be able to break some items down before putting them in the skip bin such as cardboard boxes, and furniture that can be disassembled. Tree branches and palm prongs can be cut down into smaller pieces too, to help them fit in the skip better.
How Much Room Do You Have on Your Property?
Do remember that the skip bin needs to be placed somewhere on your property for you to access and use. If you live in an apartment block, the space you will have will be far more limited, so keep this in mind. We recommend measuring out the area you wish to place the skip bin on to make sure the size you were considering will fit there.
