If You Need to Determine the Right Bin Size for Your Project, Consider the Following

Think about what you need to get rid of. Will you have bulky branches, furniture, or building materials, or will they be compact, like bricks, soil, and stones? Compacting your items before placing them in the bin will allow you to take up less space than if they are large or can’t be broken down.

A larger project generally requires a larger skip hire in Rockingham and all suburbs in Perth. To estimate the number of wheelie bins you might need for smaller projects, think about how many you would need for all your materials. A 3m3 container can hold the content of eight wheelie bins, while a 7m3 container can hold approximately 24 wheelie bins.

The number of wheelie bins you may need can be tough to estimate if you have large items. Although there are no universal rules for every situation, we’ve been doing this long enough to provide you with some guidelines for individual projects including:

Bathroom renovations: For these projects, the most common size is 3m3. It will hold your old bathroom fixtures, including a small bathtub, along with the packaging for your new products.

Kitchen renovations: In these projects, the size requirements are similar to bathroom renovations, though they could be a little larger, especially if appliances like stoves or dishwashers are involved. We typically recommend skip bins that are 3m3 to 5m3.

Moving house: Based on how big your house is and how much you’re getting rid of, there are a lot of variations. It’s usually okay to use a 3m3 skip if you’re going to get rid of unused items and a few small pieces of furniture. Larger moving and cleaning projects might require something twice as big, especially if you’re getting rid of several pieces of furniture, exercise equipment and years of stuff accumulated.

Deceased estate: In these situations, the entire house is often cleaned out. If you don’t plan on disposing of all of the furniture in this skip, we usually recommend a skip that’s 12m3.

Demolition: Based on the amount of demolished debris, we will recommend a different size container. Calculate your waste volume (length x width x depth) and multiply it by 1.5 to get an estimate.

Excavation: In the case of excavation work, skip size is calculated similarly to demolition work. To determine the size of your debris, multiply the volume by 1.3, as soil compacts more effectively than brick or concrete.

What Fits in a Cubic Metre?

Don’t worry if you don’t remember the formulas from geometry class. Here are a few tips. Cubic metres are spaces that are one metre high, one metre wide, and one metre deep. One cubic metre of space could hold any of the following items:

If you now know how large the space is, take a mental or physical inventory of what you need to get rid of, and this should give you a general idea of how much space you need.
