What size skip do I need?
Skip sizes are described in cubic metre (m³) dimensions. See our skip sizes for lineal metre dimensions of the height, length and width of each of the m³ sizes. The type and amount of waste will determine the size you need.
Will it fit in my driveway?

Please look at our skip sizes to determine the area needed for each bin size. Remember that roll on roll off bins normally requires more space than the skips.

Will I need council approval to leave it in the street or on the footpath?
This varies from council to council. It is advisable to check first. Outside your property, there are certain legal responsibilities to be considered – insurance, lights at night, warning barriers etc.
What can I put in the skips & bins?

Usually, if you can pick it up – you can put it in. However, the exceptions are more important to remember. Feel free to let us know of your proposed waste content so we can advise you.

Please Note: The following items CANNOT be placed in any skip or bin.

 Chemicals or poisons

Liquids or paint

Explosive materials


E-waste including televisions or computers

Uncontained fine dusty substances

Mattresses can be placed on top of your skip or bin for a small extra charge (see your suburb for more details)

How should I load the bin?


Green waste: Cut into smaller pieces and place any larger heavier pieces on top to compact load down.

Soil, rubble, bricks: This material should not go above the top of the bin.

General waste: Break down to utilise space efficiently. Place light waste on the bottom and heavier waste on the top to compact down.

Please remember that before we can transport any loads, they must be made safe. Our drivers can advise you should you have any questions. For a larger project, speak to our sales consultants about the cost benefits of sorting your loads.

Will any of my waste be recycled?

Yes, we are committed to recycling and continually work to improve our knowledge to recover more materials. Where possible your waste will be taken to a major recycling waste depot, where up to 92% is recycled.

What should I do about asbestos?
Asbestos removal is a specialised area, for which we hold a current EPA Transporters Licence. Due to the nature of asbestos, special prices for disposal are available on request. We can supply a bin, but please make sure of all legal requirements regarding the removal and wrapping of this waste. If you need, we can put you in contact with a licensed removalist.
How long can I keep the bin?
For up to 8 days, negotiable rates are available for longer periods.
Does it matter where I live?

SA Skips deliver skips to Adelaide metropolitan suburbs and wider SA areas daily.

How do I book a skip?

To book a skip, find your suburb, complete your details, clear the space you want the skip placed, then you can get to work.

How Can I Pay?

Payment must be made prior to the bin being delivered.  Our preferred method is by Visa or MasterCard.  Electronic Funds Transfer can be used with prior arrangement.
