IN ORDER TO GET THE MOST FROM YOUR GT SKIP, HERE ARE A COUPLE TIPS AND HINTS!
PICKING THE SPOT
Its very important your bin placement is correct and accessible for both filler (you) and driver. Protecting your ground surfaces by placing timber down under the bin. This will avoid the bin scratching your driveway or pavers. If the bin is placed on grass, the bin is slightly elevated and will not kill the grass.
ON YOUR PROPERTY
It is always better to keep the bin within the boundary of your property. When placing the bin on the street or nature strip. You must obtain a council permit, not doing do will attract a fine. Prevents people placing their rubbish in your bin. Park your car on the street and put the bin in the driveway. GT Skips can arrange for permits at additional cost..
PICK A SKIP
Our bins come in a range of sizes. Speak to the GT team about your waste requirements and we will assist you in selecting a suitable bin size. Or view or bin size page.
FILL A SKIP
Most rubbish is acceptable like: bricks, tiles, roof tiles, concrete, dirt, sand, asphalt, crushed rock, timber, sleepers, metals, paper, cardboard, plastic, glass. The list of un acceptable rubbish are all displayed on the side of the bin.
COUPLE OF SKIPS
Instead of getting one medium or large bin, consider getting 2 smaller bins. This way you can segregate your waste. And lower the end cost. By pre-sorting rubbish you save us time and in turn we will save you some money
Like all of us, you are paying rates, so using council bins is part of your yearly rate fee. Keep using them for vegetation, paper, glass, plastic and food scraps. Don’t stop because you have a skip in the drive way. You are paying for both.
NOT IN A SKIP, NOT IN THE TIP
Please be aware, there is to be no hazardous waste in our skip. Also no wet paint, asbestos, food scraps, oils, contaminated soil, flammable or toxic materials, batteries. The following will incur extra charges: mattresses, large tree stumps, TV monitors, refrigerators and freezers, and carpet.
LIP OF THE SKIP
Every skip has clearly marked max fill sticker – height fill line. Over flowing skips wont be accepted. The over flowing rubbish will be left on your site and council will hold you responsible for it. It will cost you.
