Unfortunately you cannot include concrete, bricks, pavers or tiles in a general waste skip bins. The waste removal facilities are very strict on this matter. So, if you have any of the above mentioned items, the best thing to do is order a concrete waste skip bin. A concrete waste bin is perfect for many different types of renovations or industries. In a concrete waste bin you are able to place concrete (obviously), bricks, pavers and tiles. If you’re a roof restorer, a builder or landscaper, the concrete skip bin would probably be the type of bin you would use the most.
If you are a demolition company doing smaller demolitions, AOT Skip Bins can cater to your business with up to 9m3 concrete skip bins. The home renovator, the mums and dads that have been watching The Block and decided that they too want to renovate, then if you have bricks, tiles, concrete or pavers, order a concrete skip bin through AOT Skip Bins.
When loading a concrete waste bin, there are a few things you need to look out for. There is a lot of dust that come off of concrete, especially when you are throwing it into a skip bin. AOT Skip Bins advises that you wear a suitable mask when loading concrete into a bin. This will stop small particles of dust getting into your nose and mouth.
The waste dumps are very strict when it comes to the dumping of concrete waste. Under no circumstances can you include any other types of waste within the concrete skip bin, for example soil or general waste. There is one exception to this, and that is Reo. The Reo mesh and bars that are used to support the concrete can be thrown into a concrete skip bin, with the concrete.
Your best option for working out what size skip bin you will require is to measure the length x width x height + 20% of your pile of concrete waste. However, if you are unsure, you can take a look at the diagram we have on a skip bin sizes page and work out for yourself, who much waste you have.
Still not sure?
Call Beau and the team at AOT and talk to them over the phone and they can help guide you in the decision making process.
Before you place your order, work out what day you want your bin to arrive. If you need it really early in the morning, we suggest you order it for the day before, that way you can get right into the loading of the bin as soon as you get up or on site. We offer next day delivery, but cannot always guarantee what time the bin will arrive, so like I said, if you want to start early, order for the day before.
Skip Bin hire is for 4 days, if you require longer, please phone AOT on 1300 30 12 64 to organise how much longer you would like the bin for. An additional fee may apply.
