How high can I fill the bin?
You will notice that our bins are labeled on the sides “Do not fill above rim”. For safety and legal reasons, skip bins should not be filled any higher than the rim and should be loaded carefully in order to avoid any spillage during transit. In the event that a driver arrives to collect your bin and it has been overfilled, we reserve the right to remove some of the contents and/or charge an extra amount for the excess.

The maximum load for our skip bins are 1 tonne per cubic metre. This is the safe lifting limit. Max skip size of 4m3 for skips being filled with solid fill (i.e dirt, bricks, concrete, pavers etc) Skip’s greater than 4m3 are not permitted to be filled with any solid fill.
What happens if I overload the bin?
Where possible the driver will try to take the skip, once the overloaded item is removed from the top of the bin, the overloaded item(s) where possible will be left in a neat pile near the site of the bin.
What happens if the driver can’t unload the skip?
We will contact you and advise you that we are unable to remove the skip due to the overloading. We will then arrange for you to receive another skip from us to transfer the material into. This skip will be charged at the stated rate.
How much notice do you need if I want to book a bin?
