5 Skip Bin Hire 
Waste Categories 

Which Waste Category resembles your waste?

Eastern Skip Hire have 4 different waste categories for the collection of different waste types with our skip bin hire service. Customers need to choose which waste category best resembles the type of waste they are intending to dispose off. It is important to get the category correct, as each different waste category accepts different types of waste, therefore, the prices will be different. If you are totally confused about your waste category, you can do one of three things, they are: -

  1. Ring  0417 514 763 and ask which category will suit you best; or
  2. If you have a mix of light materials from in and around your home with no bricks, concrete or dirt, book a "Light Waste" skip bin;
  3. If you have a mix of odds and sods but also have some dirt, concrete or bricks to dispose of, book a "Builders Waste" skip bin.

Mixed Heavy Waste

Mixed Heavy Waste is a mix of certain heavy materials, namely bricks, concrete and or dirt. It is a complex issue due to recycling companies only wanting to accepting one type of material per load. Once heavy waste materials are mixed together, recyclers charge us double the tipping fee, when compared to tipping 100% bricks for example, due to having to separate the heavy materials which is costly, so the cost of recycling mixed heavy materials gets passed on!

It is far cheaper to keep heavy materials separated rather than to mix the materials.
