WHAT IS NOT ALLOWED IN THE BIN?
Strictly no asbestos or vehicle tyres are to be placed in the bin. Paint tins can be placed in the bin only if they are dried solid. Batteries can be placed in the bin, but they need to be visible to the driver. For the safe disposal of any other hazardous liquids please contact your local council.
WHAT CAN I PUT IN THE BIN?
All types of mixed rubbish can be placed inside the bins, including concrete, masonry, soils, metals, plastics, timbers and greens.
HOW DO I KNOW WHAT BIN SIZE I NEED?
Estimate your pile of rubbish by using this formula:
length x width x height = volume(m3)
For example: 1.8m x 1.6m x 1.3m = 3.7 cubic metres of rubbish. For a pile this size, we recommend choosing a 4 cubic metre bin.
HOW LONG CAN THE SKIP BINS STAY ONSITE?
Customers can hire any sized bin for a maximum of 14 days. Once the bin has been filled within this hire period, simply call or email us and we will arrange collection.
CAN I FILL THE BIN ABOVE THE RIM LEVEL?
No, all skip bins must be filled under the rim. If a bin is overloaded, it is classified as dangerous by the Environmental Protection Agency (E.P.A.) and poses Occupational Health and Safety risks. All bins are clearly marked in each photo and every driver carries tarps as covers to aid in safe transport.
WHAT IF I OVERLOAD THE SKIP?
An overloaded skip is classified as a dangerous Environmental Protection Agency (E.P.A.) and poses Occupational Health and Safety risks. If you overload your skip, it is possible for us to arrange an extra bin, which will come at your cost. You will then be asked to unload the excess waste and move to the extra bin.
WHAT SHOULD I DO BEFORE MY SKIP BIN ARRIVES?
Before your skip arrives, make sure there is enough space for the truck and bin to access your property for delivery and pick up. Be sure there is a seven metre clearance (required to comply with OH&S) with no overhanging trees or powerlines. Make sure your vehicle is moved prior to the bin being delivered and that you have not placed any rubbish where the skip bin is to be placed.
WHERE CAN THE BINS BE PLACED?
A bin container is considered an unregistered vehicle by the authorities of law, so unless you have council permission, bins will have to be placed on your property. Please allow sufficient access for our trucks to do so. Driveways need to be at least 2.4 metres wide with height clearances of 2.7 metres for 2m³, 3m³, 4m³ skip bins. As for the 6m³, 10m³ and 20cm³ bins a width of 2.7 metres and height clearance of 4 metres is needed.
CAN I MOVE THE SKIP BIN?
No, you can’t move the skip bin, as this is an Occupational Health and Safety hazard. The Kangaroo Bin Hire team member will place the bin in your requested space. Sometimes bins can’t sit in your desired space, possibly due to overhanging trees, powerlines or uneven ground. Moving the bin usually prevents the recovery of the bin, which results in extra work and charges for yourself, as you will have to empty the bin before moving it.
WILL THE BIN DAMAGE MY DRIVE?
The trucks we use are heavy and will be even heavier when collecting your filled bin, so make sure that your driveway and lawn areas aren’t vulnerable to excessive weight. If you have any concerns, it is best to lay down timber bearers for the bin to sit on. You could also apply for council permit if there is no other access available.
Kangaroo Bin Hire Pty Ltd will take no responsibility for any damages sustained to any areas of the property due to poor workmanship or construction. All our subcontract drivers have insurance cover if damage is caused by vehicles.
