Frequently Asked Questions

What type of Trailer Trash mobile skip bin type do I need to hire?

This all depends on the type of rubbish you want to remove:

  • General Waste is typically anything involved with a “general cleanup around the house” and that is neither liquid nor of a hazardous nature.
  • Green Waste includes grass, leaves, tree trimmings, small branches and other organic materials.
  • Heavy Waste includes concrete, dirt, sand, clay, rocks, rubble, and bricks. This type of waste is only allowed in Trailer Trash mobile skip bins in very small quantities.

Visit the Waste page for more information.

How much weight can I put in the skip bin?

Different bins have different weight allowances, which you can see on the Bins page. If your skip exceeds your weight allowance, you will be charged an additional fee of $30 per 100kg. Some waste is very heavy and could lead to large excess fees so please contact us if you are unsure about your needs.

How high can I fill the skip bin?

Skip bins should not be filled any higher than the top of its sides. We must be able to fully close the lids to prevent spillage of material from the skip bin while stationary and in transit. Spilled contents can be extremely dangerous on roads, and it’s bad for the environment.

What can I do with hazardous chemicals?

You cannot put any hazardous waste into the skip bins, so you will need to contact your local council to dispose of this. For more information, check out the Waste page.

Will a Trailer Trash mobile skip bin be able to get up my drive?

If you can get a car up your drive, then we can almost always get one of our mobile skip bins into the space. We need a space that is 2.4m wide to get into and occasionally gates are too narrow for us to enter, or in some inner city suburbs some driveways are narrow, particularly in houses built before 1940. If you have a narrow space it is worth measuring.

Remember that Trailer Trash mobile skip bins are road-registered trailers and therefore they can be parked in the street without needing a council permit, as long as parking restrictions are followed.

Do you service business and commercial customers?

Of course. We are able to help all sorts of customers.

Can I get a skip delivered on Sunday?

We do not deliver or pick up bins on Sundays, nor on public holidays.

Can I hire a year round bin from Trailer Trash?

No, our bins are only available for temporary hire.

How much notice do I need to give when ordering a Trailer Trash mobile skip bin?

We can often deliver a mobile skip bin within a few hours of ordering, but giving us 24 hours’ notice will ensure that your skip bin is delivered on time. If our drivers are busy we may have trouble getting a bin to you very quickly, or the bins may be completely booked out. For weekend bookings, we suggest booking by Wednesday night.
