Cleaning up as we move

My spouse and I are both moving out of the family home since deciding to get divorced. Of course neither one of us want the memories of this time in the form of all our old stuff, and we are both moving into much smaller places. We've accumulated a lot of stuff over the last few years, so we are doing a lot of recycling, donating and getting rid of rubbish. I have become quite the expert at the different ways you to dispose of all sorts of items which can't go into the general rubbish. If you are looking for more information about rubbish removal then you've come to the right place.


What Is the Skip Bin Hire Process Like?

Mention the words "skip bin hire" to almost any Australian homeowner and the first thing that comes to their mind is rubbish removal. Hiring a skip bin is usually a convenient and hassle-free way to ensure proper handling and disposal of rubbish generated when you are spring cleaning, renovating, constructing, moving house or landscaping. If you are considering hiring a skip bin for the first time and would like to acquaint yourself with the process, keep reading on:

Determine how much rubbish you'll need disposed

Before you can jump into the process of hiring a skip bin, it is important that you evaluate your rubbish removal needs first. Evaluating your rubbish removal needs involves determining how much waste you will generate. The larger the volume of waste produced, the bigger the size of the bin required and vice versa.

Bin capacity is usually measured in cubic metres, and one cubic metre corresponds to 1.5 trailer loads of waste. Therefore, you can choose a correct size bin based upon how many trailer loads of rubbish you will need to dispose of.

Order your bin

Once you have determined what bin size you will need, you can now go online and research on what bin sizes are offered by various businesses hiring out skip bins. You'll find that the various skip bins offered for hire are not only categorised by size but also by waste type. Be sure to order for a bin that is intended for your particular type of waste. If you need to dispose of different types of waste, it goes without saying that you will need to order a separate bin for each type of waste.

Wait for delivery of your bin

Most skip bin businesses are able to deliver your bin within 24 hours, but it is always prudent to order as many days in advance as possible to ensure that you get the best bin. You'll be expected to pay for the bin upon delivery. Payment can be done on a cash basis or using any other method that your bin provider accepts. Usually, the driver that delivers the bin will receive the payment.

Keep the bin as you await pickup

Once the bin has been delivered and paid for, you can put all your waste in it. You should not overfill the bin because your bin provider will not collect it until you've removed the extra waste. You should also make sure you're done using your bin on the day of collection. Otherwise, each extra day will cost you money.

Make sure your bin is accessible for removal

On the scheduled day of collection, a hauling vehicle will be sent to your place to take away the filled bin. If your bin was placed within your private property, make sure somebody is around at the time pickup so they can allow the driver access to the property. If it was placed outside of your property, then your bin can be collected in your absence, as long as you've not violated any terms of use.

Your waste will then be transported to a rubbish tip or other waste disposal sites. Recyclable waste may be taken to a recycling facility that accepts it.
