Want to know more about how we deliver a great service every time or the advantages of having multiple compact bins? 
If you have a question that isn't listed below, feel free to reach out, we are always happy to help.

What can go in general waste ( a general waste bin can consist of all types of household and building waste. Whether cleaning old toys or a garage to a bathroom reno, this is the bin that most people need.
Only exceptions are Asbestos, paint tins, chemicals and food waste.
tip - General waste has the highest tip fee so to keep the cost down consider having a dedicated brick/ concrete bin, soil  or green waste bin to separate the waste and save)

All bookings include a 2 week time period, however, we are flexible! If you need it for longer just let us know, and we can collect it when you’re ready. The additional charge for extended hire is $40/week.

If you have a unique item that we haven't mentioned yet, don’t hesitate to contact the team to be advised on how we can help you dispose of it.

If you are unsure, give us a call and we can help.

Tyres, mattresses and large tree stumps have an extra tip fee as well

An invoice will be sent to the provided email address after pick up of the bin where you can pay via bank transfer, credit card or cash on the day.
In cases of mattress pickup and moving house skips, the invoice must be paid before pick up.

If you're ordering a skip bin for moving house please let us know when making your booking. These skip bins need to be paid for before pickup.

The charges for each bin booking include; dropoff of the skip contents, 2 weeks hire as well as the tipping fee. Additional costs will be based on extra weight at the gate.

Our name stands for Separate Waste And Transport. Our unique crane that is used for loading and unloading allows us to collect full bins and drop another at the same time, holding up to 3 bins at a time! SWAT Bins is about efficiency and budget friendly when it comes to disposing of your waste.

Due to having compact bin sizes, we can get them placed nearly anywhere! What this means for you is that you do not require a permit as the bin can go straight into the yard, front or back! This saves not only money but time on seeking council approval and finding a space close to the home for loading.

The difference between SWAT and other big brands is that we are locally owned and operated. You will never speak to a call centre but directly to us!

So we can ensure that you receive exactly what you need, for the job you’re doing. At SWAT Bins, we also try to consider what savings we can pass on to you when you take on our services.

Most skip services also only allow you 1 week of onsite hire when we offer 2 weeks.

SWAT Bins caters to the Newcastle area, through to the top of Lake Macquarie. Unsure if you are located within our service area? Jump over to Contact Us and tell us where you are and what you need, you never know, we just might be able to help you today!

With the unique truck style we can drop off multiple bins onsite at one time with a great variation of positioning. We can fit the same cubic metre bin space without taking up your driveway. And then when it's time to change them over we will get there quicker and swap it over much faster as we don't have to move the truck to swap the bins.
