Skip Bin Hire - 
Weight Limits

You may not realise it, but skip bin hire prices are all determined by how much weight you are allowed to load into your skip bin hire. 

You may feel weight limits are unwarranted and should not be charged at all, the skip bin hire price should be final!

In fact having weight limits helps to keep the skip bin hire prices down, especially for customers who do have light loads and don't exceed the weight limits. 75% of Eastern Skip Hire's Customers do not exceed their skip bin hire weight limits set by them! 

Some customers fall in between the light waste and builders waste (which is double the light waste weight limit), so it is cheaper for our customers to pay for the light load, and top up the total excess weight limit price of $20 per 100 kg over the skip bin hire weight limit!
