Let’s Talk Rubbish… And the Value of Getting Rid of It

Waste disposal is a serious health and environmental concern. We generate and dispose of an alarmingly large amount of waste every year and without proper disposal know-how, more rubbish ends up in landfills than they should.

Australians generate 540kg of household waste per person per year, or over 10kg per person per week. Only 37% of this is recycled and the rest ends up in landfills, with 130,000 tonnes of plastic waste ending up in our oceans and waterways.

Proper handling of different types of wastes can make a major difference. Certain materials can be returned to the manufacturers for proper handling or recycling, and other compostable or recyclable waste can be delivered to the right facilities.

With proper waste disposal, you also reduce the risk of exposure to contagious diseases or poor hygiene that could harm your family or neighbourhood.

Learning the ins and outs of proper waste disposal, however, can be a very costly and time-consuming affair. Driving to different facilities takes time and effort, and there are also fees to pay.

To many, hiring a skip bin is the most logical and convenient solution. Skip bin hire Perth companies are well-versed in proper waste disposal for any type of materials, some licensed to handle even more specialised types of waste.

Average Cost of Skip Bins

The cost of your skip bin will vary depending on the type and volume of rubbish you need to dispose of. Prices can go from $150 to $350 depending on the size and types of waste.

Prices include renting the skip for 7 days, delivery, and pickup. If you can fill your skip up to the top in less than 7 days, Kwik Skip has an active fleet of trucks that can pick it up as soon as possible.

The smallest bins start at $150 and are perfect for small projects such as office cleanouts or household decluttering. They’re compact and versatile, capable of carrying more than one would usually expect.

For medium jobs, we often recommend 3 to 4-metre bins starting at around $200. If you need to dispose of bulkier waste such as old furniture or cut-down trees, this could be right for you. It’s also great for disposing of many different types of waste that could otherwise be put in the same bin.

Large projects like demolitions and major renovations would need the largest size bins available. Starting at $300 it’s an affordable option for industrial applications such as in construction sites or major demolitions.

Regardless of your waste disposal needs, Kwik Skips can deliver the quality, speedy, and reliable service to you. We have different sized skip bins for your unique domestic and industrial waste disposal needs.
