What Happens to Your Waste after Collection?

All waste that we collect in the Hunter region is brought back to the region's newest and most advanced resource recovery centre located at Kurri Kurri. At Central Waste Station (, waste is separated and recyclable materials are processed on site, or are sent to recyclers, achieving approximately 75% recovery of all waste collected. All metals, concrete and bricks are recycled, and wood is either recycled or processed for energy recovery.

Service Hours

Deliveries and collections are carried out between 6:30am and 4pm Monday to Friday and from 6:30am to 12 noon on Saturdays. We try to accommodate request, but please bear in mind that traffic conditions and other service requires mean that we can't always be there at the time you prefer. So, if you need the skip bin for an early start, please have it delivered on the previous day to avoid inconvenience.

Waste Types

The types of waste material that we can collect in this region are general waste, heavy waste including rubble, concrete & brick, but not more than 5% soil or clay.

A note about soil and clay: Please don't fill up with soil and clay unless you have a waste classification report to ensure that the material is classified as general solid waste (GSW).

Asbestos Bins

We can also arrange asbestos bins if required through our partner company, but this must be discussed prior to hire as there are special requirements for putting asbestos containing material such as fibre cement into a skip bin. You must never put any material that may contain asbestos into a bin that has not been specifically arranged with us for this purpose.

Placement Considerations

There are different rules and guidelines in different council areas that determine where you can and where you can't put a bin so please call us, or your local council to check first if you need to put it outside of your property boundary.

Please note, that the inner-city areas such as Cooks Hill, the Hill, Newcastle City, Merewether and the Junction are the most likely to involve access difficulties for larger trucks.

There are also other placement considerations such as the width of your driveway, the strength of a driveway, the presence of pipes under a lawn and so forth and care must be exercised when deciding where to place the skip bin to avoid damage.

Same Day Deliveries

Our office in Kurri Kurri opens at 7:00am and we can usually send a bin straight out to you as long as you call us before 10am.

Skip Sizes

We have chain lift bins from 2m3 to 8m3. These are available with a door for walk in access in all except for the 2m3 size.

Concrete and masonry materials are very heavy, so the biggest chain lift bin can be used for these is 6m3, but you can upsize to a 15m3 hook lift bin for large jobs.

Delivery Times

It is not possible to give you an exact service time due to the unpredictability of traffic and the need to deliver bins in a certain order.

We deliver skips between 6am and 4pm. If you have a preference for a particular timeframe, please let us know and we will try our very best to accommodate your request.

However, we are not able to guarantee specific times. If you absolutely need the skip for an early start, we suggest that you book you delivery in for the day before so you can be assured that it will be ready and waiting for you when you need it in the morning.

Mobile Skips

Mobile skips are towed behind a ute, rather than being carried on a truck.

These are great when a conventional skip truck is too big to fit in where you need the bin, or if you must place the bin in the street.

Mobile skips are:

  • Can be locked
  • Can easily fit in a driveway or carport
  • Won't scatch your driveway
  • Can legally be positioned at the kerbside

Mobile skip bins do need to be placed in accordance to parking rules however.

Skip Bags

We will soon be making skip bags available to our Newcastle and Hunter Valley Customers.

Skip bags are for domestic waste such as old junk, toys, small appliances and general clutter.

Skip Bags:

  • Can easily be moved around by hand as you fill them
  • Can be lifted over a front fence more easily than a skip bin when being collected
  • Wont scratch your driveway
