Skip Bins – To hire or to buy? As expert view on breaking it down for you

Skip bins are considered vital to the rubbish removal service. They are the part of the bread and butter of the whole service, and a reason why Sydney residents and businesses look towards Extra Cheap Rubbish Removal and our service. There are times though that people feel that they could buy a skip bin, rather than simply hire one. So when it comes down to hiring or buying a skip bin, we got three key pointers.

1. How often do you need it?

Another way to put this: how often do you need rubbish removal? If you find yourself that you need an one-off service, then buying a skip bin is not worthy the value. You will not need it regularly and it will be a waste of money. In cases like this, it is better to hire a skip bin or contact a rubbish removal service. If you find yourself that you need it constantly (like if you’re a business), then buying a skip bin is probably worth in the long run.

2. Can you handle the workload?

The emphasis though of buying (or even hiring) a skip bin is the fact that you have do all the work yourself. We are talking about everything: bringing in the skip bin, filling it up with rubbish and then disposing of it at a certified landfill. The actual rubbish removal process all comes down on your shoulders. You will have to be skilled with handling everything. This is one downside to either hiring or buying a skip bin. If you are struggling with the workload, calling a professional might be the best bet.

3. Do you have the time for it?

Rubbish removal takes time. Do you have enough of it? Buying a skip bin means that it all comes down to you to get everything removed and disposed off in the right manner in your own timeframe. By hiring a skip bin (and a rubbish removal service with it), the time factor is removed from you and placed on someone else’s hands. There is less stress on you to get it removed on time and more time for you to worry about other things.

The Dangers of Illegal Dumping

Illegal dumping is the terminology given to describe the action of dumping of large items and quantities of rubbish in public areas including but not limited to roadsides, illegal landfills, bush land, parks, waterways, or private on private land without council or EPA approval. Simply the presence of illegally dumped rubbish encourages other people to illegally dump their rubbish. The most common illegally dumped items in Australia include furniture, packaging and organic waste. Other items that may also be dumped are abandoned cars, construction material, scrap tyres and hazardous waste such as asbestos.

Illegal Dumping

Reasons for Illegal Dumping

There are many reasons why people choose to illegally dump their rubbish. One reason includes people are trying to avoid paying disposal fees, another reason includes people may not have the time or effort to dispose of rubbish the right way.

The Negative Impact of Illegal Dumping

Illegal dumping can pose a danger to our environment and to our health. The impact can be significant as dumped rubbish can introduce contaminants to our bush land, harming our plants and animals as well as blighting our landscape. Illegal dumping can also increase the risk of flooding when waste makes its way and blocks the proper drainage of creeks, run offs and drainage basins. When illegal dumping occurs the potential for recycling is lost as all cleaned up illegal dumping makes its way straight into landfills taking up space and local councils are forced to bear the cost of clean ups which is otherwise passed on to tax payers. The aesthetic value of local communities  may be affected by illegal dumping resulting in lowered property prices.

Areas used for illegal dumping may be also accessible to people, especially those more at risk such as the sick, elderly and children, who are more vulnerable to the physical effects of chemical hazards posed by waste. Illegal dumping may also create a breeding ground for rodents, insects and other vermin. Scrap tyres especially create a breeding ground for mosquitos which carry and cause diseases such as encephalitis an inflammation of the brain that can lead to permanent brain damage.

Community Education on Rubbish Removal

Many local communities have adopted strategies to help combat illegal dumping and the hazardous effects it has on the environment and public health. Such initiatives include community education, clean ups and regulatory enforcement. These strategies are designed to educate the community of the impacts of illegal dumping, warn them of the penalties associated with illegal dumping and inform them of ways to safely and legally dump unwanted waste material. Councils also provide a variety of ways their residents can dispose of unwanted material such as through scheduled clean ups and through waste disposal facilities. The extent of these strategies are enforced varies from community to community depending on the extent of the problem. Another initiative adopted by Australians is the approach ‘dob in a dumper’. This approach is to encourage people who see illegal dumping to report the matter to their local council which will be investigated further.

Dispose Your Rubbish Responsibly

Illegal dumping poses a serious danger to public health and the environment, therefore it is extremely important that all individuals dispose of rubbish responsibly by adopting appropriate strategies such as finding out when council clean ups are scheduled, recycling and donating to charity items that can be saved from landfills and by reporting illegal dumping. These approaches lead to a healthier environment and healthier people.
