How to Hire Hook Skip Bins from Wetherill Park & Minto Recycling Depots in the outer West of Sydney?

Three questions we are asked regularly about hook lift skips are:

1) What is a hook skip bin?
2) What are hook skip bins used for?
3) What areas in Sydney do you supply skip bin hire, as you are based in Wetherill Park and Minto?

Three great questions! Below are our answers.

Hooklift skip bins are given their name due to the triangular raised hook arm on one side of the vessel.

The hook skip has an entire side that opens up, making it easy for small bobcats to drive in and out to load up the skip bin. The walls are designed upright and not on a slant, making it easy to pack and fill the waste. The wheels you see on the other end of the hook face are used to help wheel the skip bin into place upon touchdown when they slide off the truck.

1) Are Hook Lift Skip Bins Delivered and Unloaded Differently From Standard Skips?

Hook lift skip bins are named as such because of how they are unloaded from the truck. A strong robotic arm is used to latch onto the hook and then the hook loader bin is raised up at an angle. Once on an angle, it easily slides off the truck and the wheels on the other end land on the ground. The wheels are used to then position the hook skip bin into the perfect place on the street, ready to use.

The sizeable robotic arm is powered by hydraulics, which easily slides the skip bin on and off our trucks (*1-3).

This delivery system relies on rolling and sliding rather than lifting the whole weight of the bin! Hook skip bins have a far greater load and weight capacity, hence the practical design of the hook lift skip bin.

2) What are Hook Skip Bins Used For?

15 cubic metre hook skip bin, with a carrying capacity of 5 tonnes.

Hook skips are generally rectangular and fairly long with upright walls. They have a rear door at one end that can be entirely removed. The door makes these skips ideal for construction work sites as wheelbarrows and bobcats can unload easily straight into the skip.

Hook skip bin hire is best for industrial sites, controlling costs as a larger amount of bulk construction debris can be moved with one vehicle. Hook skip bins are good for gyprock (plaster) waste, metal or timber. This is a win as you no longer need to make several trips using standard-sized skip bins.

Hooklift Skip Bin Saves the Day!

We recently spoke with a builder who said the hook lift skip bin he hired saved the day. Hook skip bins are not lifted off the truck by robotic hydraulic arms, so the hooklift skip bin was able to be delivered onsite under trees with low overhanging branches. There was no way an ordinary skip bin truck would have been able to fit in this space to drop off a normal skip.

The image below illustrates the problem encountered and how hiring a hook lift skip bin was the perfect solution.

The builder was stripping out the ceilings of this property that had caved in from all the rain. The hook lift skip bin was filled with ceiling fibro, wires, old ceiling fans, insulation mats, bricks, dirt, wires, and other kinds of waste they found above the ceiling and under the roof tiles. The bin was already near full, and the black hessian mesh was used to stop passers-by from throwing other waste into the skip bin.

Hook lift skip bin hire is a great solution to save and protect the street trees in this western suburb of Sydney.

The smaller capacity hook skip bins are ideal for side loading or material that needs to be loaded via the rear door.

Be Mindful of Safety

Remember to never load hook skip bins above their level, as in a mound. It is important to evenly distribute the load, so the surface of the waste is level before it is ready to be picked up. As with any type of skip bin, it must be hired for the express purpose of the waste that has been specified.
