Skip Bins Brisbane: if you read our blog on a regular basis – you will know that we provide low cost regular bin services for small and medium Aussie businesses covering general waste and all recycling streams.


Recently we have had a couple of issues with customer disposing of construction waste such as concrete or bricks in General Waste bins.


In this blog we will run through why construction waste can not be collected in general waste bins an also talk about our services such as builders bins and skip bins Brisbane that can offer a good solution.

Skip bins Brisbane – suitable for construction waste


When you are doing a construction project or have waste streams such as concrete or brick – you will need to get rid of that construction waste. We do not accept construction waste in our front lift and rear lift bins for a number of reasons:


The potential damage to trucks and machinery is very likely – garbage trucks and bins are expensive pieces of equipment.


Flipping heavy objects such as bricks, concrete and similar into bins can severely damage them and the compression equipment inside the truck. The customer could be liable for incorrect usage of the bin.


– The weight of the construction objects will push the bin weight way above the contract weight- when we provide bins for general waste it is at an agreed density or weight per metre.


Construction waste can often be recycled or used again – and general waste or landfill is not the best disposal facility for it.


If you have construction waste requirements – simply contact us and we will be able to arrange low cost and flexible construction or builders bins for your needs – i.e. in various sizes etc to suit your needs.

Construction or demolition waste can not go in a normal bin for collection.


This is because of the heavy weight of those items – which can damage the garbage truck and also cost lots of money to dump at landfill.


Construction waste can often be recycled – whereby re-usable items will be separated out of the skip once it is collected.
