Skip bins are rented by volume. As you may only hire them infrequently, we appreciate that you want to load them up as much as you can. However, it is important to understand that they cannot be legally loaded above the rim, and WM will not accept bins that have been overloaded.
These restrictions aren’t made by us to make it more difficult or expensive to remove your waste, they are part of the Government’s health and safety legislation. It is illegal to transport a waste container beyond its dimensional limits and most companies (including WM) will not accept the risk of incurring heavy fines.
Skip bins need to be legally covered during transit, but tarpaulins and other basic covering materials do not have the structural integrity to prevent heavy debris from dislodging. This has the ability to directly put people’s lives at risk on our roads. WM apologises for any inconvenience but is committed to complying with both the community’s expectations and Government legislation in regards to health and safety. These rules apply for skip bin hire and all rubbish skips.
