Frequently Asked Questions

At Century Bins, we offer a range of skip bins for hire throughout Perth, working with commercial and residential customers. Our skips can accommodate most types of rubbish, but there are some things that should not be placed in your skip. To help you out, we’ve included the answers to some frequently asked questions below. For any further information, or to book one of our skips, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

q: Can I burn items in the skip bin?

No. Fires or burning rubbish in the skip bin is not permitted and any damage caused to the skip as a result of such behaviour will be payable by the customer.

q: My property has narrow access. Can I still have a skip bin delivered?

Yes. At Century Bins, we supply skip bins in a variety of sizes and have skips built specifically for tight access areas.

q: Do your skip bins have ramps?

Yes. All of our skips at Century Bins are fitted with ramps for easy wheelbarrow access.

q: What items CANNOT be placed in a skip bin?

No dangerous items should be placed in the skip bins. This includes, Chemicals or drums, car batteries, flammable liquid, oils, paint, gas bottles, food waste, deceased animals, tyres and definitely no asbestos.

q: What items CAN be placed in a skip bin?

We accept: Aluminium, bricks, concrete roof tiles, treated timber, floor boards, doors, window frames, clothes, toys, timber, furniture, appliances, white goods, metals, plastic, garden waste, wood, dirt, rubble, and more. If you are unsure about an item, please ask our staff when you make your booking.

q: How much rubbish can I put in the skip bin?

Bins should not be overloaded and should only be filled to the top, as Occupational Health and Safety regulations require that full skip bins are covered during transit. Overloading bins also means our driver will not be able to pick them up and charges will apply. Heavier items should be placed at the bottom of the skip with any green waste at the top. Do not place large flat objects around the sides of the bins to increase the height.

q: Can a skip bin be collected earlier than the arranged pick-up date?

Yes - just call or email our office and we’ll arrange a prompt pick-up at a time that suits.

q: Do I need to be there when the bin is delivered?

This is only necessary if you haven’t pre-paid for the skip. Otherwise, you or a family member/friend should be present to pay the driver.

q: Can I move the bin?

Once delivered, you should not move the skip as you might move it to an area inaccessible to the driver upon pick-up. You may also damage the bin, with all such costs payable by the hirer.

q: Where is the skip bin placed?

You can ask us to place the skip in a particular spot when you place your order, but it’s ultimately at the driver’s discretion where it’s placed due to safety and accessibility considerations. If the driver is unable to gain access on delivery/pick-up of a bin, extra charges will apply. Unfortunately, bins cannot be placed on council property (roads, footpaths, medium strips, etc.) without council approval.

q: How much notice is required to book a skip bin?

In most instances, Century Bins can deliver your skip bin on the same day or within 24-hours of ordering it.

q: What size skip bins do you have available?

Century Bins has 2m³, 3m³, 4m³, 5m³, and 6m³ skip bins available for hire throughout the Perth metropolitan area.

q: What payment options are available?

Payment is required on delivery of the skip bin unless already pre-paid by phone. We accept cash, which can be given to the driver on delivery of the bin, or Visa and Mastercard payments, which can only be made over the phone.
