If you have a renovation, construction project or a major home clean up on the horizon you may be tossing up whether or not to invest in a skip bin as the waste disposal solution. In our current economy most of us are looking for ways to optimise our budgets so naturally you may also be considering a DIY solution. 

However, DIY can come with many hidden costs and headaches which are unforeseeable until you know!! So let us enlighten you. This month we’ve compiled a list of 5 benefits our customers enjoy when choosing skip bin hire! 

Benefit 1. Hiring a skip is an efficient form of waste removal  

It will come as no surprise that skip bin hire services provide a convenient and efficient way to remove large amounts of waste from various settings, including residential, commercial, and construction sites. 

From time to time we still hear of a builder choosing to use an alternative option such as a rubbish cage for waste. In times gone past this was often a cheaper option however don’t be fooled.  Due to lesser efficiency there are a multitude of hidden costs that come with onsite cages.

Similarly we do hear of customers performing a home clean up with the intention to pack the waste into their regular bin of the coming weeks (or months). In reality the waste pile sitting around the home for time on end will likely drive you crazy. Hiring a skip means it will all be out of sight and out of mind with just a phone call to inform us you are ready for collection. 

Benefit 2. Time And Cost Savings

Renting a skip bin can save you both time and money as compared to traditional waste removal methods. Instead of making multiple trips to the landfill or recycling center, you can dispose of all your waste in one go. This is particularly advantageous for larger projects where a significant amount of waste is generated.

As we have mentioned above, we still see and hear of clients taking the DIY approach with rubbish cages. If this is you (or a mate of yours) be sure to check out the linked blog to understand all of the hidden costs! 

Benefit 3. Proper Waste Segregation

At Jumbo Bins, waste is segmented into categories in order to be processed in the most responsible manner possible. We offer bins by waste type including: 

  • Household/Commercial/Light
  • Construction/Demolition/Heavy
  • Concrete & Brick
  • Soil & Excavation
  • Green Waste

This allows us to make better environmental decisions as outlined in benefit 5 below. 

Benefit 4. Safety and Convenience

Skip bins are designed to be sturdy and safe for waste disposal in all situations. There are a variety of bins types available including skips equipped with features like doors and ramps for easy loading, which reduces the risk of accidents during waste disposal. 

They really are the best option for occupational health and safety as they prevent clutter, promote cleanliness, and enhance the overall safety on a construction site. 

Additionally, our experienced drivers at Jumbo handle the safe loading, transportation and disposal of waste sparing you the hassle of dealing with these logistics. 

Benefit 5. Environmental Responsibility

This contributes to reducing landfill waste and conserving natural resources.
