RUBBISH REMOVAL MELBOURNE
Responsible Waste Management Services
When you have a large amount of rubbish to get rid of,
the choice is between hiring a skip bin or booking in a rubbish removal service.
Let’s go through the pros and cons of each before deciding on which option is
best for you.
bin is a large metal container that is designed to be mechanically loaded and
unloaded from a truck. The bins are delivered and left either in the front
yard, on the nature strip or at the roadside, where it is filled with rubbish.
When the bin is filled, it is then collected by the hire company for disposal.
removal service involves bringing a truck to the location of your rubbish
and having one or more workers carry and load it on the spot, take it away and
dispose of it for you.
Whether hiring a skip bin to dispose of your rubbish or
getting a rubbish removal company to do it for you depends on your specific
To be fair, if you are having renovation work done the
time preference might be longer. In other words, a renovation job usually doesn’t
generate one load of rubbish all at once, so a skip bin would make economic
sense to have on-site throughout the process. The people involved with carrying
out the renovation work will usually be responsible for keeping the site clear
of rubbish and will take care of the skip bin hire and waste disposal as well.
Unfortunately for many people, it isn’t possible to put a
skip bin in the front yard or on the street due to lack of space. A skip bin
also needs to be placed on a level surface, which might also not be available.
Others also have restricted access that prevents trucks from dropping off and
retrieving the bin, while compromising with a smaller skip can mean a higher
frequency of change over to get the job done. Having to do this can greatly
increase the overall cost. A rubbish removal truck can park in your driveway in
the worst case, or temporarily take up a parking space as the rubbish is
If you need the skip bin to sit on public land, you’ll
need to apply and pay for a council permit. This includes placing it on the
nature strip or on the street. The cost of the permit depends on which council
area you live in. Failure to get a permit can result in hefty fines.
If you have the time and energy to load a skip bin
yourself, you might stand to save some money. For most people, your time is valuable
and better spent on other things like work, family or having a social life. Getting
a rubbish removal company to deal with the whole job allows you to make the
best use of your time.
People love free stuff and when they see an opportunity
to take advantage of something without paying for it, all too often they will. Leaving
a skip bin overnight often becomes an invitation for people in the neighbourhood
to quietly deposit their own rubbish. As annoying as this is, there isn’t much
you can do about it and you get to bear the cost.
Most bin hire companies only want specific types of rubbish
to go into their bins. If they need to separate mixed rubbish at the other end
it incurs extra costs that’ll get passed onto you. This may or may not be made
known to you up-front, so it pays to make sure you know this before booking one
in. In some cases, they’ll provide multiple bins so you can separate different
rubbish types on location, taking up a lot of space and multiplying your hire
If you’re on a tight schedule to get rid of your rubbish,
a skip bin hire might not suit your needs. If you needed to apply for a permit,
you may need to wait for approval from the council. Then if there is a delay in
delivery of the bin, or the truck is late to remove it and your permit period lapses,
you might have to renew it or risk the council giving you a fine. When booking
a rubbish removal service, at least the job will be finished the same day in
most cases, and you won’t need to coordinate the timing with a permit approval.
Comparing the two options disposing of household rubbish,
the price of a rubbish removal service might look more expensive at first
glance but digging a bit deeper reveals that it isn’t that simple.
