Picking the perfect size skip bin doesn't need to be a headache! All you need is to ask yourself 3 simple questions:
1. What type of waste is going in the skip bin?
Tiny Tins Skip Bins offer all types of bins for all types of waste.
The main waste and rubbish groups include:
General Waste (household rubbish)
Green Waste (Strictly garden, no soil, rubbish or food waste)
Masonary (clean bricks and tiles only)
Mixed Waste (all things building waste)
General Solid Waste (GSW – Soil/Clay/Sand)
2. Where are you placing the skip bin?
Where you place the skip bin will depend on the layout of your property, the size of the skip bin and what type of waste is going to be placed in the skip bin. Keep in mind that this needs to be in an easily accessible area for our drivers and skip bin truck. It is also important to have the skip bin as close as possible to your project as you will need to cart the rubbish from A to B. Placement of the skip bin will also allow our drivers to collect the bin once full even if you aren’t home! How convenient is that!
3. What is the size of the project at hand?
The size of the skip bin and quote will depend on the size and location of the project! Not sure what size skip bin to order? Simply measure your pile of rubbish and enter the measurements into our website for an accurate skip bin quote. We have your rubbish covered! Need the skip bin for longer than expected? No problem! Give us a call and let us know!

When asking yourself if you require a permit to hire a skip bin for your waste management needs there are a few important things to reflect on.
It is imperative to consider where the skip bin will be placed as to whether a permit is required. If the skip bin will be placed in a privately owned residential area then you will generally not require a permit for your waste bin.
However, if you need to place the skip bin on public property such as the council strip, kerb side or road, then you will need to contact council in regards to obtaining a permit.
The nature strip is the land that sits between the boundary of your private property and the kerbside or street. These can, on many occasions also include the footpath. Always remember that the section of your driveway located on the council strip is also classed as public property, therefore you may need to hold a permit to have the skip bin located here.
Failure to obtain the correct permission before organising the delivery of your skip bin can result in a fine, payable by the customer who organised the hire of the skip bin or owner of the property.
Contact your local council and find out before you book your next skip bin. It is much better to be safe than to be sorry!

Although an office space and environment may seem like a relatively clean area, there are various types of waste that can accumulate in different parts of the office, causing unnecessary clutter and mess. To minimise the risk of this happening start with establishing small ways to manage your waste by introducing paper-saving strategies.
Using electronic copies of documents such as important information, policies and emails reduces the amount of paper being wasted, minimising the strain on the environment to produce and dispose of the unwanted papers when they accumulate. Think before you print or post! While most office paper can be recycled it is important to ask yourself, do I really need to print this document? Email is a great way to reduce the amount of waste in your workplace.
If you find your office is accumulating with waste or rubbish, unwanted items and is due for an annual clean out, you may want to consider hiring a skip bin for the most effective waste management. Skips bin range from all sizes, depending on your amount of waste and size of office you may need a 2m3 skip bin or a 12m3 skip bin.
Incorporate a reduce, reuse, recycle system - one person’s trash can be another person’s treasure! Reducing the amount of paper you are printing, reusing the packages from parcels that arrive and recycling all the unwanted leftovers. Even incorporate a plastic bottle/can station, where each month the bottles are taking in and the money is used for an office BBQ!!

Many of the skip bins collected across Australia are carted to the closest waste management facility. Depending on the type of waste in the skip bin will depend on how the rubbish is tipped. Much of the waste is mixed and unfortunately goes straight from the bin into landfill. On average, landfills across Australia see approximately 20 million tonnes of waste each year. Across the country, there are over 1,000 landfill waste management facilities so chances are, you are already familiar with some of the ins and outs of managing your waste as effectively as possible.
It is vital to keep in mind that if you are wanting to reduce your landfill footprint, you can order multiple skips for the various types of waste you may have. If the waste has been separated and grouped into different types, it is then easier to dispose of in the most environmentally friendly way.
Not many people know, but much of the waste that we produce as humans can be reused or recycled. Placing these items into landfill can take centuries to degrade, harming the environment and consuming landfill space.

Hazardous waste and by-products can be classed as liquids, chemicals, oils, paints, gas bottles etc. These can be poisonous/toxic products which can pose serious irreversible effects on the natural environment. It is important to dispose of this type of waste correctly as it cannot be placed into landfill.
DO remember it is important to enquire with your local council either Wollongong, Shellharbour or Kiama to guarantee the safe disposal of your hazardous liquids such as paints.
DO NOT pour chemicals down the drain as this leads to harming the marine life that inhabit the ocean.
DO take your household batteries to your local Aldi Supermarket. Aldi are the first and only supermarket to operate a battery take back scheme. The chemicals in batteries can be toxic to the environment over time, posing a danger to the local wildlife and surrounding areas such as nature reserves and waterways. On average, around 300 million household batteries are thrown into landfill mixed with ordinary waste. This hazard equates to a massive 8000 tonne of batteries that can be removed from the environment.
DO NOT burn off chemicals as they can potentially be flammable/explosive. This also releases toxins into the environment, effecting the flora and fauna.
DO take your old printer cartridges to your local Australia Post office for safe disposal and recycling.
Here at Tiny Tins Skip Bins Illawarra we ensure we always determine the best way to dispose of our customer’s waste. This includes taking the time to sort the rubbish into more specific waste groups such as landfill, metal, white goods, green waste, timber etc. This simple task only takes a few moments and can help reduce our landfill footprint, having greater positive effects on the environment!
