“Why do I need a skip bin when I have council bins that are collected for free?”

This is a common question. With council provided bins that are collected weekly, what is the benefit of a Pro Skips Australia skip bin? Put simply, our skips can handle the load that your kerbside bins simply cannot! If you’re trying to declutter your home and need a way to dispose of the bulky furniture and broken appliances, your council bins simply won’t do. More than that, to trek to the local tip takes serious time and energy, not to mention the growing cost of landfill fees. If you’ve got a clean-up on your hands, from general waste to white goods, landscape rubbish to a commercial or industrial clear-out, a Pro Skips Australia skip bin is the only choice.

So, now that you’ve decided to invest in an affordable and convenient skip bin, here are the top 3 things to consider.




NUMBER ONE – The first thing you need to consider when choosing a Pro Skips Australia skip bin is what type of waste you are looking to dispose of. There are about five different types of waste that we typically see thrown out from our clients.

  • General waste, which is most general household waste including boxes, wood, cabinets, white goods, clothes, toys and carpets.
  • Heavy waste, which is waste from building renovations, demolition, and landscaping including bricks, concrete, tiles, soil and pavers.
  • Green waste, which is comprised of organic waste such as grass clippings, branches, wood, fence palings, hedge trimmings, weeds and garden mulch.
  • Mixed waste, which includes white goods and Electronics like TVs, computers, monitors, fridges and washing machines. As well as general household waste like kitchen, carpets, cupboards and furniture.

At Pro Skips Australia, we make things simple for you. All you have to do is decide what you want to discard. When you hire a standard skip bin, you’re encouraged to fill it with any waste you like! We sort through the contents at our recycling facility and send over 80% through to be reused and repurposed. As long as your skip does not contain asbestos, hazardous chemicals or paint, you have complete freedom!

NUMBER TWO – After you have decided on what waste you want to get rid of, you need to think about the size of your skip bin. For example, if you are disposing of garden waste or household rubbish, it may make more sense to hire a smaller skip. In contrast, if you’re looking to get your construction site clean and clear, one of our larger skip bins would be more suitable.

NUMBER THREE – Lastly, when choosing a skip, you need to think about the location. This should take into consideration distance, surfaces, and access. When thinking about distance you need to consider the proximity of the skip to where your waste will be, and if it will be easy for you to get those heavy items to the skip quickly and safely.

Similarly, you need to think about the surface on which you will place the skip. Some driveways may need to have wooden blocks underneath to avoid the skip damaging tiles or pavers underneath.

Lastly, we need to have a clear path to deliver and pickup the skip when you’re ready to wave goodbye to your rubbish. If there are any obstructions, this will be difficult for us to access the skip, in which case we’ll invite ourselves in for a cup of *tea!
