We make absolutely sure that our pricing structure is simple to understand and makes sense.

We don’t like hidden costs and we certainly don’t enjoy springing sudden expenses onto our customers.

That’s why we’re clear on how much you’ll be paying for a skip hire from us and why we pride ourselves on a no-nonsense approach to skip bin hire.

However, one of the big questions is how much you’ll be expected to pay to hire a bin and what size you’re going to need.

We understand that it can be difficult to gauge just how much space you need, which is why we’re more than happy to give you a helping hand and help you estimate the amount of space you need based on your circumstances.

If you’d like to learn more then don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. Our staff at Alpha Bin Hire would be more than happy to assist you in calculating the exact type of skip bin you need and how long you’ll be needing it for.

Costs involved

in hiring a skip bin.

There are a number of different things to consider when hiring a skip bin. Alpha Bin Hire makes it easy so that all you need to do is give us a call and let us know what kind of project you’ll be taking on.

Alternatively, let us know what size you need and we’ll be happy to send you the exact skip that you need.

Take a look at our bins to see the sizes that we offer and rough estimates for how much you can fit inside of them.

We understand that some customers know exactly what they’re looking for.


There may be a number of factors that could affect the price, such as how long you’re going to be renting it for and the type of waste you’ll be putting into it.

Since every customer’s needs are different, we highly recommend you contact us beforehand so we can suggest a suitable skip size for your project.


Council permits

Do I need a council permit?

Alpha Bin Hire is fully insured and registered with multiple city councils around Melbourne. This means we can make skip bin hire a hassle-free process by arranging all council permits for your public skip placement.

The costs will depend on your location and the length of time that you’ll be renting it for. For example, the City of Kingston usually charges $56.60 for a single day, but you can also have a week-long permit for $123.

As the prices can be a little arbitrary from council to council, we suggest giving us a call so we can make suggestions on how to get the best deal.
