Skip bin hire Melbourne vs large dumpster styles bins for your business

To start off our Melbourne skip bin hire topic for this blog, with a skip bin, a large bin (up to c.30 cubic metres) is delivered and left on site for a set period of time. The bin is generally delivered and picked up by a dedicated truck.

Pricing is split between delivery/transport components and then disposal per tonne basis. For indicative pricing on disposal per tonne rates, see the Knox City Council website, showing a disposal rate of $200 per tonne. This service is usually more suitable for one-off or very infrequent services.

When should you book skip bin hire services in Melbourne?

A skip bin hire service is suitable for you or your business under the following circumstances:

  1. You have a construction or building waste such as bricks, timber, pavers etc. This could be from a building or renovation project at a commercial or residential address. In this instance, you will require a skip bin service as the contents are not suitable for collection in a regular garbage truck.
  2. If you have hazardous materials such as asbestos. Asbestos can not be collected in a regular garbage truck as it will contaminate the truck’s contents.
  3. There are strict criteria for disposal of asbestos as regards skips which must be adhered to.
  4. A skip bin service can be suitable for product destruction services – where items are taken away to be destroyed or for deep burial.
  5. Skip bin hire can also be suitable for short-term services –where a regular commercial bin collection would not be suitable.

When would a front lift bin or dumpster service be better for you than a skip bin hire service in Melbourne?

Front lift bin/dumpster service: Waster provides large dumpster-style bins (known in the Australian waste management industry as front lift bins) in sizes from 1.5 cubic metres to 4.5 cubic metres.

A large front lift bin service or dumpster service is more suitable and cost-effective for regular ongoing services such as at a shop, office or regular business that produces general waste (i.e., non-construction waste).

You can see images of the bin sizes in the image below:

By organising a large bin (or what the Americans would call a dumpster), you can obtain much cheaper waste removal charges for all types of general waste and recycling streams. Take note that the images in the picture above are for large paper and cardboard recycling bins.

With a Front Lift Bin / Dumpster service, the bin is not removed each time it is emptied. It is simply flipped into a garbage truck. This delivers considerable economies and reduces the cost of collection for business customers.

You can check out a short video of how a front lift bin is emptied below, where the container is tipped over the top of the rubbish truck.
