Are there any extra charges on top of the quoted price?2022-06-26T23:41:53+10:00

We pride ourselves on our upfront, all-inclusive pricing structure, with no hidden extras. Despite our best intention however, there are some instances where additional charges will apply as follows:

  • Dishonoured cheques will incur a fee.
  • Undisclosed disposal of mattresses and/or tyres, and/or tree stumps more than 600 mm wide, and/or carpet/underlay found in the skip after collection, will incur a fee if they were not disclosed at time of booking.
  • Over-loaded Skips will incur a non-pick-up fee
Are you fully insured?2022-06-22T18:10:37+10:00

Absolutely! We have $20 million public/property liability insurance cover and are fully compliant with all Workplace, Health & Safety (WHS) regulations.

Do I need to be there when my Skip is delivered and collected?2022-06-22T18:09:58+10:00

No. Once your booking details have been confirmed and your payment processed, your Skips and Scrap driver will be able to deliver and collect your Skip in accordance with your instructions without anyone needing to be there. Your receipt will be sent to the email address you provided with your booking details.

Can the bin be placed on my nature strip?2022-06-22T18:09:08+10:00

If the Skip is to be placed on public land (such as the nature strip bordering your property) you will need to contact your local council to determine if you require a permit. We recommend having the Skip placed on privately owned land wherever possible to avoid additional fees for permits.

Skips and Scraps also offer the service of organising the permit application for you.

  • Process Permit for Customer: Lake Macquarie $95
  • Process Permit for Customer: City of Newcastle $100
How high can I fill the bin?2022-06-22T18:08:35+10:00

Regulations ensure we must, and do, comply with NSW Roads safety rules and regulations. Skips can therefore only be filled to the rim of the bin. No boards or similar materials are to be used to make the Skip hold more rubbish. In the event that your Skip bin is left on site due to non-compliance with these rules, a non-pick-up fee will be applied. You will also be required to re-pack the Skip to conform with the regulations before another pickup is organised, at your own cost.

What type of rubbish is not permitted in the Skip?2022-06-26T23:42:31+10:00

How long can I hire the Skip for?2022-06-22T18:06:06+10:00

Skip hire for removal of waste is generally 2-3 days (although same day collection/pick-up and longer hire periods are available on request and can be quoted upfront). Upon submission of a booking, a Skips and Scrap sales representative will be in contact with you to confirm the price and terms of service. If you are happy to proceed, our representative will process your payment and confirm your hire details.
