Yes. Gas bottles, tyres (excluding bicycle tyres) and mattresses with springs inside are all charged at $30 extra per item. There is no extra charge for foam mattresses without springs. Overweight skip bins are charged at $15 extra per 100kg over the weight limit of that size bin and waste type.
Can I have the skip bin placed on the road or council property.
Each council has it’s own rules. Usually you’ll need a permit to have the skip bin anywhere outside of your property. Best practice is to phone your local council and ask what their rules are. If you have council permission to have the skip bin on council property, please advise us when booking as barrier flags will need to be attached to the skip bin on delivery. For more information, click on our Local Council Permit Guide.
Can I get a skip bin delivered or collected on Sundays or Public Holidays?
You will need to arrange this with one of our staff prior to confirming your booking. Sundays and Public Holidays do carry an extra $30 charge.
