How do I book a skip bin from AOT Skip Bins?
How much notice do you need for delivery or pickup?
Generally, we allow 24 hours for delivery or pickup from when the booking was made. Often, we can deliver a bin on the same day, depending on how many bins are available and whether our run to your area has been completed for the day. If you urgently require a bin, please phone AOT Skip Bins on 1300 30 12 64 to discuss this.
How do I pay?
We have three payment options available. You can pay securely online when you book a skip bin through our online booking service. You can pay our drivers with cash or credit card, who will issue you with a receipt (an invoice will then be posted to you), or you can call our office on 1300 30 12 64 and pay by phone using your credit card. Payment must be made on or before the bin is delivered. (We accept EFT payments as long as we receive bank confirmation that the EFT has been executed before the day of delivery).
Can I specify a delivery or pickup time?
We can NOT guarantee delivery times on same-day bookings. However, if the booking is made with 24 hours’ notice or more, we are more likely to be able to accommodate your requests. If you know that you will need to use the skip first thing in the morning, it is highly recommended that you have it delivered on the prior day.
How full can I fill the bin?
Under NO circumstances can a skip bin be filled above the rim. All skips have a maximum height fill point to the height on the side wall of the bin, no higher. Skip bins MUST NOT BE overloaded or be filled above the rim under any circumstance, as this is illegal to transport an overfilled skip.
What happens if I overfill the bin?
If a skip is overfilled, you will be given the option to hire an additional skip or to remove the excess material. If there is nobody on site when the collection occurs, the driver will, at their discretion, attempt to remove the excess material and place it in a pile as close as possible to the skip’s location. All labour costs incurred by removing excess rubbish will be at additional charges and will be your responsibility.
In cases where the excess is not removed, and the skip remains for extended periods, the customer will be liable for additional charges, including rental, labour, and transport costs if we need to unload the excess.
What charges are there if I go over my included weights?
Weight restrictions apply for General Waste Skip Bins only, and the restricted weight is as follows:
Any General Waste skip bin ordered that exceeds the limits above will be required to pay an additional $27 per 100kg before removal (Prices subject to change). An extra cost also applies for adding mattresses, LPG gas cylinders and tyres. Feel free to call us to get an estimate of additional charges for these items.

How do I know what size I will need?
We have provided a handy diagram to determine how much waste you have and, therefore, what size bin you need. Alternatively, here is the guide we have prepared for our skip bin sizes.
How long can I hire the bin for?
The price includes up to 4 days of hire; additional charges may occur if a longer period is required. If you need the bin picked up earlier, this can be done on request – please call 1300 30 12 64. The price will remain the same if the bin is collected earlier.
If I want the bin for longer, are there additional charges?
Our normal rental period is up to 4 days. If you require the bin for a longer period, ask our sales staff what the cost would be to keep the bin a little bit longer. Once you have filled the bin, please phone our office on 1300 30 12 64 to book a collection time.
Do you provide skip bins to residential and commercial properties?
Yes. AOT Skip Bins provide where possible and skips to businesses and residential properties within our Adelaide delivery areas (Southern, Western & Central).
Can you place the skip bin on public land or a nature strip?
Councils have strict regulations as to where a skip bin can be placed. It is the responsibility of the customer to seek a council permit for the placement of a skip bin on public land, the road or a nature strip prior to booking the bin. In many instances, we can find another option for bin placement if council permits cannot be obtained.
How do I fill up a skip bin safely?
Almost all of our skips in Adelaide are fitted with a rear door; this helps you to load it up safely. When you’re filling your skip bin up, try to ensure that you have someone on hand to assist you with heavier items and on that note, never overfill your skip bin…it’s a hazard to yourself and to passers-by. Talking of hazards, there are certain things that you cannot put into a skip bin…this includes asbestos. If you need to remove asbestos, please get in touch with the proper authorities. Here is a useful guide to asbestos from the South Australian Government.
If you need help obtaining a council permit, please get in touch with AOT Skip Bins before your delivery date, and they can help you arrange this.
