"...we did not know the Council tip now charged by weight for our trailer. The benefit of skip bins saved us hassle of tip sorting stations and we don't get charged by weight. The difference in price made no sense in use of trailer. Thankyou GuardAway! Read more...

A cubic metre is measured by the depth x width x length. General rule of thumb is a level box trailer is approximately 3/4 of a cubic metre. Visualise your pile of waste and take 3 measurements, length multiplied by the width multiplied by the depth. That should give you an approximate size.

To help you estimate your waste removal requirements, please see the following: (trailer loads = 6 x 4m). Save time and hassle of sorting at tip. Note Launceston tip charge trailers by weight.

  • 3 trailer loads – 2m3
  • 4 trailer loads – 3m3
  • 6 to 7 trailer loads – 4m3
  • 9 to 12 trailer loads – 6m3
  • 10 to 13 trailer loads – 7m3
  • 12 to 15 trailer loads – 10m3
  • 14 to 16 trailer loads – 12m3
