How much does timber skip bin hire cost?
Skip bin hire costs will depend on the size of the bin you require, the location, and the type of waste that you need to dispose of.
You’ll have two or three days to fill the skip, and you can request longer bin hire if this isn’t enough time.
A timber removal skip bin can be placed on a driveway or property for convenient access. If there isn’t space on the property for the skip bin, you can apply for a local council permit to place the skip bin on the nature strip or road.
If you have any questions about the cost of a skip bin or where the best place to put it will be, the staff at WM Waste Management provide advice on the regulations in your area and the best skip for your waste.

The types of timber that can go into a skip bin include:
- Untreated timbers
- Treated timber, including painted, varnished or chemically treated timber

Treated timber needs to be disposed of safely, and can’t be burned or composted. WM Waste Management can remove treated and untreated timber cluttering up your property or workplace.
What can’t go in a timber skip bin?
Tree stumps can’t go into a skip bin, as they can contain insects and decaying matter.

What happens to timber waste after removal?
Untreated timber — without paint, chemicals or varnish — can be chipped and turned into mulch, or compressed into wood pallets and used as Processed Engineered Fuel (PEF).
Our sister business, KTS Recycling, has a program that allows waste, including timber waste, to be converted to a fuel substitute that can be used in the place of coal and gas in high-combustion facilities.
Treated timber will be reused to build furniture, create art and custom items. Some timber can be reused in landscaping and gardening. Any furniture that is in usable condition will be sold at “Treasure Chest“, our recycled goods shop.
At WM Waste Management we always ensure that as much timber waste as possible is recycled and reused.
