Residents Encouraged to Hire Skip Bins for Building Rubble

Building rubble left lying around is not only an eyesore; it is also harmful to the environment.

As such, the City continues to urge residents to make use of the municipal owned skip-bin hire services. A minimal fee of R1 221. 15, allows residents to hire a six cubic metre non-compactable rubble container for the duration of the customer’s requirement.

Masingi Mhinga (45) is a new home owner at Windmill Park Extension in Boksburg. She is currently renovating her house and has building rubble stacked outside her gate, which she says causes a feud with some of her neighbours.

Masingi says she was not aware of the municipal skip-bin hire services, she only heard of private services which cost her large amounts of money.

“I only heard from one of the municipal waste removal officials that I can actually hire the skip-bin from the City to contain my rubble at an affordable rate. So I will go to Boksburg waste depot for the skip-bin services,” said Mhinga.

Furthermore, customers do not always have to walk to their nearest depots to hire the skip bins. It can be done at their convenience telephonically by providing all required information electronically and the bin will be delivered within 24-48 hours from date of application.

Documents required for the application include water and lights account and the client’s ID document. 

Customers can call 011 999 0979 to hire the skip bin.
