12m³ Walk in Bin

Is our 12m³ walk-in bin right for you?

Out of all our commercial bins, the 12m³ is probably our most popular. It’s also usually the largest bin you will need, as often times it is better to break your load into multiple bins if you are needing to get rid of a large amount of waste. This is due to weight limits that apply for our vehicles to be able to drive on the roads. It does, of course, depend on your rubbish. All our commercial bins are designed with construction materials in mind, so they are typically longer than our domestic range. Take a look at the image above to get an idea of the length, width, and height of the 12m³ bin to see if this is the right option for you.

Need more space then a 12m³ walk-in bin?

12m³ of volume to get rid of rubbish is not the best option for everyone. If you’ve measured your rubbish and think it’s either not enough or even too much, we’d like to make the following recommendations.

What size skip bin should you hire?

Choosing the right skip bin depends on two things; The amount of rubbish you need to get rid of, and the approximate weight of the rubbish.

How to determine based on size

Measure the length, width and height of your rubbish pile. If you multiply these numbers in a calculator you'll have a rough idea of the cubic meters you need to get rid of. You can also estimate your waste using the following rough guide:

  • 2m³ skip bin is roughly 12 Wheelie Bins or 3 Trailers
  • 4m³ skip bin is roughly 24 Wheelie Bins or 6 Trailers
  • 6m³ skip bin is roughly 36 Wheelie Bins or 9 Trailers
  • 8m³ skip bin is roughly 48 Wheelie Bins or 12 Trailers
  • 9m³ skip bin is roughly 54 Wheelie Bins or 14 Trailers
  • 10m³ skip bin is roughly 60 Wheelie Bins or 16 Trailers
  • 12m³ skip bin is roughly 72 Wheelie Bins or 18 Trailers
  • 16m³ skip bin is roughly 96 Wheelie Bins or 24 Trailers
  • 24m³ skip bin is roughly 144 Wheelie Bins or 36 Trailers

How to consider weight limits on skip bins

All waste has a different weight, for some heavier waste you'll need to split your load between multiple skip bins as our trucks have weight limits to safely transport it. Here's a rough guide:

  • General Waste
  • 2m³ to 24m³
  • Green Waste
  • 2m³ to 24m³
  • Soil and Dirt
  • 2m³ to 9m³
  • Mixed Heavy Waste
  • 2m³ to 9m³
