Skip Hire - 10 Reasons Why You Should Not Hire a Skip Or Mini Skip
Skips are trailer bins that are issued by public garbage disposal committees as well as private garbage disposal companies and agencies. It works quite similarly to the huge garbage trailer bins that are placed on the neighborhood block while the trucks collect the weekly waste. However this is a service that means you can call for a mini skip hire and clean out all your junk in one shot. You know that periodic spring cleaning sessions you have, right? They’re not always in spring, but come to you when everything is getting really cluttered up, every once in a while.Maybe it has come with the onset of a new job or at the end of an old one. Maybe you are shifting houses and need to get rid of the excess you have accumulated, since one habit most humans seem to have in common is hoarding. Of course, maybe none of these life changing events has happened and you’re just having a good old in depth clearing out session. Either way, where to put all the stuff you are disposing of poses a quandary. You can’t just shift it all out on your doorstep or your lawn and wait for the garbage collect truck to haul it away after three or four days or even later.
Home improvement projects are rapidly becoming the norm amongst homeowners in Australia and the Western world in general due to a combination of factors including:- Growing number of DIY stores - Cheaper materials/tools due to the China effect - Growth in instructional DIY internet sites and magazinesThe result of this growth in home DIY improvement projects? More rubbish and waste that needs to be collected from the residential consumers. With this in mind, the skip/bin business will be doing a roaring trade. However, for the domestic market, is a skip hire the best solution?In Europe and the US, skip hire is dwindling for the growing majority of domestic home improvement projects. Due to advances in polypropylene innovation, a new breed of skip has emerged - a skip bag (proly bag). These are essentially plastic bags made out of polypropylene and have incredible strength and durability. They can handle all kinds of waste including bricks, roof tiles, ceramics, gravel, you can even throw a bath tub in there. They are initially flat-packed and are roughly A3 size. However, they expand to 2.5 cubic metres and can contain up to 1.5 tonnes of debris. Lapordata (the International Materials Testing Institute) testing on the new skip bag which has just been introduced into Melbourne and Sydney in Australia has been tested up to 9 tonnes. Yes, that wasn't a typo, the poly bag passed a stress test at 9 tonnes. As the the skip bag's marketing messages point out on their website, it really has the strength of a steel skip yet the convenience of a bag. Other brands common in the US and Europe are generally able to support a load of 4 tonnes however, crane trucks are only capable of lifting 2 tonnes so as a rule, the rubbish within a skip bag should not be in excess of 1.5 tonnes.Households throughout the world are generating more and more rubbish with the advent of increases in DIY home improvement projects and the affect of our materialistic society. These new polypropylene bags are revolutionising the way the domestic market dispose of their rubbish and evidence of that is widely seen in the US and Europe. Australia are catching on and the skip bag is the final step in the DIY consumer experience - waste generated by DIY projects requires large volume rubbish removal.
Some of it could be rubbish, old appliances, old furniture or even garden waste. If you leave it out, just like that, raccoons, rats, bandicoots and other marauding little creatures could infest your external property and become a regular problem. Your neighbors will almost definitely have an issue with that kind of mess, at the very least from an aesthetic perspective. Hygiene, contamination, creating a breeding ground for disease, bacteria and fungus… are all factors that play across one’s mind when we think of irresponsible waste disposal. So it is best to plan out the ‘spring’ cleaning beforehand. The kind of cleaning materials and the quantity you require, the time you will have to invest in getting the job done and lastly and most importantly, how you will sort out the trash and where it has to go.There is a new really great way to get this done. You can call a mini skip company, and they deliver a mini skip bin to you, where you can chuck all your stuff. They come and take it away and put it in the tip. The job is done. Another alternative to mini skips are the latest feather in cap for many trash disposal agencies whether private or public. You can ask for a jumbo bag instead. Instead of a steel bin, you are provided with a bag. It is foldable, and you can open it up whenever you need it. You can fill it with up to 1.3 tons of trash. The reason they are preferred over mini skips is because they are not as unsightly, they do not come with a waste loading time frame and you are not charged for hire. The most appreciable thing is that eighty percent of all waste is recycled.
