The main question Bookabin’s Service Team are asked is, “What size bin should I get?” Bookabin have a variety of skip sizes available, depending on the type of waste to be disposed of. Their smallest skip, at 2 cubic metres, is equivalent to 2 standard trailers, or 8 wheelie bins. Also, they have bins suitable for general waste, cleanfill and hardfill, green garden waste and soil and dirt. On their website is a general guide for some of their sizes to give you an idea of the capacity of each. You can then click on images for more information (images are indicative only, actual shape of skip may vary).

Regarding what skip bin type you need, this all depends on the type of rubbish you are going to put in the skip bin. General Waste is typically anything involved with a “general cleanup around the house and section” that is neither liquid nor of a hazardous nature. Use a Cleanfill / Hardfill skip bin, if you have any of the following: Concrete, clay, rocks, rubble, bricks, asphalt, ceramic tiles. Use a Green Waste skip bin, if you have any of the following: Grass, leaves, tree trimmings, small branches and other organic materials.

Only use a Soil / Dirt skip bin, if you have 100% pure soil / dirt (no turf or contaminants). No other waste can be mixed in this bin, additional charges will apply if other waste is placed in this bin.

The team at Bookabin are also asked what can’t be put in the skip bin. Hazardous waste can not be placed in the skip bin. This includes TV’s, monitors, fridges, paints, solvents, liquids or any asbestos. To dispose of any of these materials you need to contact your local council. They will be able to provide you with a contact who can dispose of anything hazardous or not accepted in your skip bin (i.e. food waste).

Bookabin’s aim is to provide consumers with a high standard of service and excellent value, so for more information on waste bins, skip hire Dunedin, rubbish removal and rubbish bins please go to .
