Skip Bins

If you’re a Perth homeowner or business with a lot of waste, you know that your bins can quickly fill up. So, just what is the limit? And how do you get more? As we’ll see, local services have considerable restrictions (maybe you need a skip?):


If you’re a Perth resident, your rates include a fee that covers the collection of general waste and recycling. Some areas (currently Crawley and Nedlands) also receive a fortnightly green waste collection service. The total capacity is:

  • 240L General Waste (weekly)
  • 240L Recycling (weekly)
  • 240L Green Waste (Crawley and Nedlands only, fortnightly)

What Can You Put In Your General Waste and Recycling Bins?

Your council bins can only take certain types of waste:

General Waste – Your general waste bin CANNOT take hazardous household waste. This includes paint, chemicals, electronic waste, gas cylinders, construction waste, asbestos, vehicle parts, and more.
General Recycling – Your recycling waste bin can take plastic bottles (not lids), glass waste, paper & cardboard waste, and drinks cans. It CANNOT take anything non-recyclable, green waste, nappies, or food.
Green Waste – You can use your green waste for small branches, grass clippings, and other similarly-sized green waste. You CANNOT put general waste, food scraps, recyclable materials, or paper in it.

For a full list of what you can and cannot put in your bins, visit the City of Perth website.


Local waste disposal services are available from the City of Perth for businesses, with regular bins available from 120L up to 1100L. While useful, these services are cost-inefficient for large, one-off disposal; 1100L might sound like a lot, but it fills up fast.

Additionally, these bins can’t take hazardous waste, including construction waste, asbestos, gas cylinders, electronic waste, and chemicals, which makes it unsuitable for many businesses.

Need To Dispose Of More Waste? The local residential collections are useful for general waste but are limited in volume (240L), weight (each bin must weigh less than 75kg), and the types of waste it can carry (see above). For commercial outfits, local collections quickly become expensive and are an inefficient way of handling a large volume of short-term waste. 

This makes local bins a poor option for waste from improvement projects, clear-outs, and intensive landscaping work. Your best option is to hire a skip from Just Skips:

  • Capacity up to 10,000L (far exceeding 250L for residential bins and max. 1100L for commercial bins).
  • Zero-hassle waste disposal saves you time.
  • Complete service – we take care of everything for you.
  • Safe, clean and environmentally-friendly option.
  • Highly-affordable with multiple skip sizes.
  • We can help you remove almost any waste*

*We can help with hazardous waste removal, including asbestos, tyres, and chemicals, but please call us first as our process for removing this waste is different from other types of waste.

Skip Bins

Waste is piling up, and you need to get rid of it – should you hire a skip bin? If you’re even asking the question, the answer is probably yes! Below we’ve picked out the top seven benefits of using a skip bin:


Benefit 1: Cost-Effective For Short-Term Needs - Using a van to make multiple visits to the local recycling facility is neither practical nor cost-efficient. With many sizes to choose from, a skip is a practical way of getting the short-term waste clearance you need for a low cost.


Benefit 2: Saves Time - Without a skip, you’ll need to dispose of your rubbish using your own van (or a hired one). On the face of it, this seems cheaper, but how much is your time worth? You’ll need to load it up, drive it to the local waste facility, queue up (and we all know how long that can take), and then unload and drive back – and you’ll have to do that multiple times. 


With a skip, all you need to do is fill it up, saving a huge amount of time.


Benefit 3: Correct and Legal Disposal of Waste - When you sort out your waste yourself, you are legally responsible for ensuring it is disposed of correctly and legally. For those who don’t dispose of waste regularly, this can be an added complication and stress.


When you hire a skip bin, the company you hire it from takes on that responsibility and you no longer need to worry about it – it becomes somebody else’s problem!


Benefit 4: Good For The Environment - When you dispose of your own waste, you’ll need to sort it and recycle the different materials. Not only does this take time, but if you’re not an expert you’re likely to miss a few things (or put a few things in that can’t be recycled – just as bad). Because we deal with waste every day, we ensure that everything that can be recycled, is, which is good for the environment.


Benefit 5: Reduce Handling Time For Your Employees/Family - When you dispose of rubbish yourself, your employees (or family) must handle each piece of waste multiple times before it is disposed of. Each time someone handles this waste, there’s a risk of injury. Using a skip cuts down on risk for you and those around you: touch it once, put it in, then forget about it.


Benefit 6: Keep Home or Business Clean and Hazard-Free - It’s not just your employees or family that are at risk from all that waste. Without a skip, unsightly piles of rubbish can quickly mount up. If a customer or another person gets hurt because of this rubbish, you could be liable. Additionally, even if there is no hazard, piles of rubbish are bad for your brand and unpopular with your neighbours. Skips won’t win any design awards, but they’re a lot better than a disordered pile of rubbish! 


Benefit 7: Stress-Free End-to-End Service - When you hire a skip bin, you’re getting more than just a bin. You get a complete end-to-end expert disposal service for your waste. It’s peace of mind that your waste is being disposed of correctly, ethically and legally and that you don’t have to do anything about it.
