The average Australian household generates 1.5 tonnes of solid waste each year. Estimates say that Australia’s commercial and industrial sectors, including construction and demolition, generate up to 30 million tonnes of solid waste on a yearly basis. The amount of waste generated by renovating a home or building, or even by conducting a good spring cleaning, can bring about more garbage than you can dispose of by yourself. A lack of available storage space will lead to multiple trips to and from the local landfill or waste dump site. Choosing to hire skip bins is a more practical solution, especially when it comes to removing large amounts of waste.
What is a Skip Bin Hire?
Skip bins represent a convenient way to store rubbish at your location until you have enough to justify a trip to the landfill. When you take on a large cleaning project, home renovation, a removal, or a new construction project, chances are that you are going to generate a lot of waste. You don’t want to make a trip to the landfill every day, and you don’t want to let rubbish pile up on your work site, so a skip bin hire is your best waste disposal option. A large rubbish storage container will be delivered to your location, dropped off, and left for your use. You simply call for it to be removed when it is full, or when you are finished using it.
Where is Skip Bin Hire Available?
Skip bins can be hired for delivery to your location, and the pick-up of your waste can be arranged based on your convenience and your personal schedule. Skip bin hire in Fremantle and other suburbs, or in metropolitan areas such as Ardross, Gosnells, and Perth is available for the efficient and safe disposal of waste from residences, commercial properties, businesses, industrial sites, and construction sites.
How Do You Know What Size is Right?
The size that is appropriate for you is determined by the amount of waste you anticipate, as measured by volume in cubic meters (m3). A cubic meter of waste is 1m tall and 1m wide. Skip bins are available in a number of different sizes, with the smaller varieties being 2.5m3, 3m3, or 4m3, whereas the larger ones are offered in 2m3 increments from 4m3 up to 10m3. You can also think of the amount of waste that would fit in an average sized (4ft by 4ft) trailer, and estimate how many trailer loads it would take to haul the waste. One trailer can typically haul around 1.5m3 of waste, so if you estimate four total trailers of waste, you would need a 6m3 skip bin.
Are There Any Restrictions on Allowable Waste?
Skip bins can be used to store and haul general waste or heavy waste, while toxic or hazardous materials such as tyres, paints, pesticides, and motor oil are prohibited. General waste includes normal household rubbish and materials such as wood, plastics, paper, metal, and green waste (plants, branches, and other biological matter). Heavy waste includes dense materials such as bricks, sand, turf, rubble, pavers, tiles, rocks, concrete, lino, and glass. Skip bins can be used for asbestos, but because it is a hazardous material that is subject to environmental regulations and strict handling and disposal methods, asbestos requires specific prior arrangements.
