We’re also happy to advise you on any queries, and have included the answers to some frequently asked questions below.
Q. What’s the difference between a skip bin and a walk-in bin?
A. All our skips are walk-in with drop-down or swing-open back doors. Our skips/bins start from two cubic metres and go all the way to 12 cubic metres. No extra charges for this convenience.
Q. What cannot go into the skip?
A. As a service for waste management here in Townsville, environmental impact is of the greatest importance to us. As such, Ace Mini Skips is licensed to dispose of asbestos. Items like car tyres, car batteries, liquids, paints, chemicals and mattresses incur extra fees. For more information on cost regarding these items, we suggest you give our office a call.
Q. Can the skip be placed on my nature strip?
A. Yes. Please note:
no skips will be placed on the roadway.
Q. How big a skip do I need?
A. That’s a very difficult question to answer without seeing the waste pile. To help you estimate your waste removal requirements, please note the following:
Level 6 x 4 Box Trailer = 0.6m 3
Level 1800 x 1200 Box Trailer = 0.6m 3
Q. How long can I hire the skip?
A. Skips are usually hired for any where up to 7 days. When you book a skip, we’ll confirm both the delivery and collection dates with you. Longer periods of hire are also available upon request.
Q. Is all the rubbish from the bins taken directly to landfill?
A. No. In accordance with solid waste management and recycling principles, we use our holding yard in Brice Court to ensure maximum recycling where possible.
Q. How high can I fill the skip?
A. Skips can be filled 300mm above the sides. No boards or similar material can be placed on the sides to make the bin take more rubbish. Regulations ensure we must comply with road safety rules and regulations.
Q. How long will it take for my skip to arrive after ordering?
A. We suggest that you order your skip in advance to ensure availability and your desired drop-off time. We always try to deliver it within a couple of hours depending on the schedules for that day.
