TERMS OF HIRE AND SUPPLY OF SKIP BINS
Are there any restrictions on the use of the bin?
Whilst the bin is in your care, possession and control, you agree not to:
(a) place or allow to be placed into the bin any Non-Complying Waste;
(b) light fires, burn or allow the burning of waste in the bin;
(c) excessively fill the bin causing the waste to protrude above the sides of the bin, or otherwise, not fit within the confines of the skip bin;
(d) remove, relocate or otherwise move the bin from the Delivery Address or the Placement Site, unless we expressly authorised in writing;
(e) use the bin for any illegal purpose which contravenes these terms and conditions or any law; and
(f) use the bin for any other purpose other than to deposit waste.
What is Non-Complying Waste?
Non-Complying Waste that cannot be disposed of in the bin are:
- Noxious materials;
- Needles and syringes;
- Hazardous materials;
- Paint and fluids;
- Florescent light bulbs;
- Gas bottles; and
- Heavy vehicle tyres.
If you are uncertain whether your waste is Non-Complying Waste, please contact us.
What happens if you place Non-Complying Waste or excessive waste in the bin?
If you place Non-Complying Waste or excessive waste in the bin, we may, at our discretion do either of the following:
We will not collect the bin until all Non-Complying Waste and/or excessive waste have been removed by you. We will charge you an additional fee at our usual hire rates for the extended hire of the bin: or
We will return to you the Non-Complying Waste or excessive waste and collect the bin at any time.
All waste deposited in the bin will be sorted prior to disposal at the public tip. If any Non-Complying Waste is found in the skip bin after collection, we will return those items to you and charge you a return fee of $110.
When is my order confirmed?
To place an order, you must either complete the Order a Skip Bin form online or by contacting us at (02) 6235 9844.
Upon receipt of your order, we will contact you and arrange a date and time to deliver the bin. Your order is confirmed when we agree to a delivery date and time (‘the Agreed Delivery Date and Time’).
When do we deliver bins?
We endeavour to deliver the bin to you in accordance with your delivery instructions and as confirmed by us.
However, we do not guarantee the delivery of the bin on the confirmed delivery date and time. We are not responsible for any loss or costs incurred by you as result of a late delivery of the bin.
What if we can’t deliver the bin to you as requested?
If we are unable to deliver the bin you requested, we will advise you and offer a substitute bin at no additional costs, when we contact you to confirm your delivery instructions.
If you do not wish to accept a substitute bin, you must inform us at the time of our offer and we will provide you a refund of any fees paid by you.
Where a larger substitute bin is provided, you must not exceed the capacity as requested in your Order a Skip Bin form. For example, if you ordered a 2-metre bin and a 3-metre bin was provided as a substitute, you are only permitted to fill the bin to the 2-metre capacity*. If the 3-metre skip bin is filled to its maximum capacity i.e. 3 metres in height, the fee for a larger-sized skip bin will apply and we will render an invoice for the difference as an additional fee.
*For clarity, the difference between a 2-metre and a 3-metre skip bin is its volume. The capacity is determined by the volume in cubic metres of the waste disposed in the skip bin.
Where a smaller substitute bin is provided, we will charge you the hire fee for the smaller bin.
Do we need access and where do we place the bins?
You must ensure that we have free, safe and reasonable access to the Delivery Address and the site where the bin is to be placed (‘the Placement Site’) at delivery. This includes the removal (where applicable) of any obstructions at the Delivery Address and the Placement Site.
You must obtain all necessary consents for the access and placement of the bin prior to the confirmed delivery date and time.
You indemnify us for any claim or liability for trespass to land, public or private nuisance, penalties or fines in order for us to fulfil our obligations under these terms.
The loading and unloading of a bin may damage your concrete driveway, pavement, pathway, grass or surface, including any underground watering system. We do not accept any responsibility for any damage caused as a result of our loading and unloading of the bin.
We reserve the right to refuse to enter a site or deliver the bin if we believe that the Delivery Address and/or the Placement Site are unsafe.
Do you need to be at delivery?
It is preferable for you to be present at delivery in order to guide us to the Placement Site.
If you are not present at delivery, we endeavour to place the bin in accordance with your delivery instructions, and where there is no instruction, at the appropriate site we consider safe at the Delivery Address. We are not responsible for any claim or liability incurred by you due to our selection of the Placement Site.
When do we collect the bin?
We will collect the bin at the conclusion of the hire period.
We reserve the right to collect the bin at any time prior to the conclusion of the hire period if you do not have permission to locate the bin at the Placement Site or are in breach of these terms in any way.
If you wish to extend the hire period, you must provide us with at least one business day’s notice and pay to us the applicable hire fees for the extended hire of the bin.
If you request an early collection by contacting us at (02) 6235 9844, we will collect the bin as soon as practicable after our receipt of your request. We do not charge pro rata hire fees in the event of an early collection of the bin.
You must ensure that we have free, safe and reasonable access to the Delivery Address and the Placement Site in order for us to collect the bin.
Certain items incur an additional fee – what are they?
If you do not disclose to us, at the time you submit the Order a Skip Bin form or when you book a bin over the phone, that you are disposing of mattresses, tyres, televisions and computer monitors into the bin, we will:
(a) treat it as Non-Complying Waste and as such, not collect the bin until all Non-Complying Waste have been removed. We will charge you an additional fee at our usual hire rates for the extended hire of the bin; or
(b) dispose of the items and charge you the additional fee specified in the pricing schedule for that particular item.
Notwithstanding the above, we reserve the right not to dispose of any of the above items found in the bin.
Can you cancel an order?
You may cancel your order, by providing us with at least one business day’s notice prior to the confirmed delivery date and time, by contacting us at (02) 6235 9844.
We will charge a cancellation fee equivalent to 50% of the applicable hire fees, if you cancel your order within 24 hours of the confirmed delivery date and time.
Can you change an order?
You may change your order, by providing us with at least two business days’ notice prior to the confirmed delivery date and time, by email or contacting us at (02) 6235 9844.
We will endeavour to change your order as requested, but cannot guarantee that your request will be met.
How do you pay the hire fees?
We accept payment by way of credit card or cash.
If you pay by credit card, you must do so online or over the phone by contacting us at (02) 6235 9844. The fees will be charged to the nominated card at the time you submit the Order a Skip Bin form or when we confirm your order over the phone.

We will provide you a valid tax invoice compliant with the GST legislation for your payment of hire fees and additional fees (where applicable).
What are the additional fees we charge?
We may charge you the following additional fees after collection, if:
(a) we are required to wait for more than 15 minutes at delivery or collection to fulfil our obligations under these terms, an additional fee of $55 for every 15 minutes after the first 15 minutes;
(b) we do not have access to the Delivery Address and/or Placement Site at delivery or collection, and we are required to attend the Delivery Address at a later time, an additional fee of $121 per subsequent attendance.

(d) you dispose of Non-Complying Waste in the bin or if the bin appears to be soiled in a state and condition beyond normal use, an additional fee of $150 attributed to the cleaning of the bin;
(e) your bin weighs more than 150kg/cubic meter for light bins or 500kg/cubic meter for heavy bins. As the bin is weighed at the public tip after collection, the additional fee being the difference between the fee for the bin and additional fees incurred for weight above the bin weight allowance charged at $150.50/1000kg or part thereof; or
(f) we incur any extra tipping fees or overweight fines in relation to the bin, the additional fee being the amount incurred by us for these reasons.
(g) you book a bin for delivery on a Sunday or public holiday, an additional fee 10% of the purchase price will be applied – subject to opening hours and bin avilability.
It is your responsibility to select the suitable bin weight and size for your purpose and to provide us with correct information.
You authorise us to charge your nominated credit card the amount of the additional fees applicable, as a separate transaction if payment of hire fees was initially made by credit card.
If you did not pay by credit card, we will issue you a tax invoice for the additional fees payable within 7 days of the date of the invoice. If payment is not made by the due date, a late payment fee will apply as per the pricing schedule.

- Noxious materials;
- Needles and syringes;
