Skip Bin Sizes - How to work out what bin size you need.
If the waste is already in a pile ready to be loaded then try to estimate the length, width and height of the rubbish to determine the bin size. For example, if the pile of rubbish measures 4m long, 3m wide and 0.5m high then you will need a 6m3 (4 x 3 x 0.5) bin.
As a guide, one of our more popular bin sizes for household customers is a 4m3 bin. This is equivalent to approximately 5 standard box trailer loads.
WARNING: If you need to fill the bin with concrete or soil then you are limited to a maximum bin size of 6m3. Any larger than that and the bin will be too heavy for the truck to carry legally.

Asbestos Skip Bins
Do you have asbestos that you need to dispose of?
Bris-Skips is EPA Approved to transport Asbestos waste materials.
Being regulated waste all Asbestos needs to be contained in specially lined bins.
We put a plastic liner in the bin for you at the time of delivery. All you need to do is cover the bin with the plastic provided when you are finished and tape it so that
it can't be blown open by the wind.
Use of bins for asbestos needs to be specified when ordering.
Skip Bins need to placed behind the property line. Our trucks need access (e.g. the driveway) that is 3m wide by 3.8m high to be able to get in to the site and unload the bin.
Sometimes it is not possible to get the bin behind the property line. In these situations the driver will be able to help you find a spot for the bin at the time of delivery.
