8m³ Walk in Bin

Is our 8m³ walk-in bin right for you?

The 8m³ walk-in bin is the biggest bin you would normally need for a domestic clean up. You’d only need a bin this size for especially large cleanup jobs in the yard or in the home. Maybe you are planning a big clean up involving both areas of your home, including some renovations. We allow hiring periods for between 3 and 4 days, if you think you might need longer you’ll have to speak with our staff to find out if we can accommodate you. We recommend that you take a look at the image above and try to measure out the rubbish you plan to get rid of, as you may need a smaller bin.

What we can provide you with are bins that are delivered and picked up on time, priced at a competitive rate. The reason we are able to provide a good rate is that we take all the rubbish loaded into our bins back to our transfer stations where the rubbish is sorted out and talking to different types of recycling plants. Very little waste put in our bins ends up as landfill, which minimises the environmental impact as well as our costs for disposing of the rubbish.

Need more space then an 8m³ walk-in bin?

8m³ 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
