Skip Bin Hire ACT & Canberra

Where to hire skip bins in the ACT?

There is a number of places to hire skip bins from in Canberra, ACT. Most of the providers in the territory have similar rates although this can get a little complex when trying to calculate weight and allowances. It is also time-consuming to shop around for the best deal. When you make a request through you will receive quotes from multiple businesses that can deliver a skip bin on the date requested (get started above). It's a free service and is not only convenient but can save hours of your time. There's no obligation to accept a quote received through the platform.

How much does it cost to hire a skip bin in the ACT?

As a general rule, pricing for skip bins varies. E.g. for General mixed it can be around $200-$250 which includes 300kg for waste. This would be suitable for a small Bathroom/Laundry Renovation project or similar. Pricing for Concrete & Bricks is similar. Clean Fill can cost around $300. Generally, there's a weight allowance of around 300kg (but this depends on the type of skip you are using). It's difficult to know how much weight you need, or how much of your allowance you've used when loading up - often it's better to go the next size up to avoid any hidden "tip fees".

What size skip bins do I need?

As a general rule, the following size guidelines are useful when selecting a skip:

  • For general waste and tidy a 4m skip bin will normally do the job (i.e. around 4 box trailer loads). This size is also suitable for a Garden/yard cleanup.

  • For a House Renovation with mixed building waste from you may need up to a 10m skip bins = 10 ~ box trailer loads.

What can go in skip bins?

While you can put almost anything in a skip bin - we would recommend that you treat and handle Asbestos & Fibro separately. Asbestos is a hazardous material it is better to leave it up to the professionals. Fibro is can sometimes look like Asbestos which creates a problem in that's it's not always possible to identify the material correctly. Often Fibro is charged as Asbestos and the tipping fees can run into the hundreds of dollars. If you want to prove that it's not asbestos this can also cost more money than it is worth.  Fibro includes fibro-cement sheeting, fibreglass roof sheeting, compressed and non-compressed sheets. Gyprock is generally okay. The following items can not be dumped in a skip bin:

  • Gas bottles
  • Oil heaters
  • Batteries
  • Fire extinguishers
  • Older style insulation
