So, you’re planning to hire a hardfill bin. To enable us to dispose of your hardfill safely and efficiently, there are some things to think about.


What is hardfill?

Just in case you’re not sure, we categorise hardfill as materials like concrete, soil, clay, tiles and bricks. If you have stuff like timber, Gib, plastic or green waste to get rid of, you’ll need a general waste bin. This information sheet explains what you can and cannot put in your bin in more detail.


Weight limits

Unlike with general waste, there is no weight limit for hardfill.



Okay, you don’t have to worry about weight, but there is still a limit to how much your bin can take. Basically, you can fill your bin to level, but no more; the weight could be too much for our truck, and overfilled bins are also dangerous.



As already mentioned, hardfill is materials like bricks, soil and concrete. DO NOT throw in general waste —the guys at the hardfill place will be mightily peeved. You won’t be too happy either because your waste will be re-categorised as general and charged by weight, which can get extremely expensive.


Bin placement

Our driver will place your bin where they can pick it up safely and without damaging your property. Please don’t move it. We have had customers who have shifted bins closer to fences. When we have come to pick up the bins, the fences were damaged. Also, trucks and damp grass don’t play very well together, so, particularly during winter, we avoid driving on grass.

It goes without saying that we don’t want to place your bin in an inconvenience place, so we do our best to get delivery instructions from you. 


Four-day hire

We hire out bins for four days, which is standard in our industry. On the day your bin is due to be collected, our driver could arrive anytime from 7 am to 5 pm, so please be ready.

Of course, it would be great to hire out our bins for longer, but we have a limited stock, and we’d hate to let our other customers down. However, if you use bins regularly and need more time, give us a call; we’ll see what we can do.

There you go: the ‘rules of engagement’ when hiring a hardfill bin. Go forth and do your worst!
