Skip Bin Hire or Rubbish Removal? The Advantages of Rubbish Removal over Skip Bin Hire


In Australia, waste disposal is big business. That's no surprise given that the amount of waste produced by Australia annually is growing at twice the rate of the population! Although that figure doesn't make for pleasant reading, it does mean that you now have more waste disposal options than ever before. Skip bins and rubbish removal are two of the waste disposal services available to customers who don't have the means to transport waste to waste facilities themselves.

However, if you have a substantial amount of waste that needs to be removed, you might be wondering what is best for you. While hiring a skip bin does remove the need to transport the waste yourself, professional rubbish removal offers many other advantages that skip bin hire does not.

Rubbish Removal Is Faster

Skip bins are more suited to jobs that are guaranteed to last at least several days, such as those on building sites, office renovations and commercial landscaping projects. However, many typical household jobs like garage and loft clearance, deceased estate clearance and hoarder home clearance, can be completed in a day or less.

With the capability for same-day bookings, a rubbish removal team can arrive at your property and quickly and efficiently dispose of your waste before the day is out.

Skip Bins Attract Unwanted Attention

While rubbish removal services are in and out in a day, skip bins often sit outside a property overnight. This attracts both skip bin divers and people who are looking for somewhere to dump their own waste. If you don't have any way to secure your skip bin, rubbish removal is the way to go.

Rubbish Removal Services Tackle Tough Jobs

Clogged attics and cellars are hard on your body. However, with a team of rubbish removal professionals, all you need do is stand back and supervise while the heavy, awkward lifting is done for you. Old garages and sheds too often contain heavy items like furniture and old household and garden waste that would be better left to somebody who is trained in rubbish removal.

Skip Bins Take Up Space and Require a Permit

Not only do skip bins take up valuable driveway space, but you may also require a permit should you be unwilling to give up your driveway space. The application process from start to finish can take two or more days, which is time that you may not have. A rubbish removal service does not take up space—it frees up space, allowing you to get on with your life.

If you are about to dispose of a large amount of waste and time is of the essence, consider hiring a rubbish removal service. While there is a time and a place for skip bin hire, rubbish removal is swift, safe, and convenient.

Rob's Rubbish Removal Service

Hello, my name is Rob and this is my rubbish removal service blog. I am not a professional garbage removal guy but I have a lot of experience of trying to deal with large amounts of rubbish. When my father passed away, I was surprised to find he had been collecting magazines for many years. When I entered his home, I found a very large volume of magazines and I had no idea how I would deal with them. My friend suggested I hire a garbage removal company to help me clear out the mess. They did a great job and I learnt quite a lot.
