Various Uses of Rented Skip Bins in the Home

The use of rented skip bins is very common in many residential areas all over Australia. These rubbish bins come in different sizes and styles, so that homeowners can get a product that suits their waste removal needs exactly. Typically, skip bins are used for weekly, bi-weekly or monthly removal of general waste from the home, but they can also be used for special jobs every once in a while. 

Here is a look at some of the special projects in the home that may require the use of a rented skip bin.


Whether you have bought an existing home and want to renovate it before moving in, or you simply think it has been a long time since you last gave your home a much-needed makeover, you will most likely need to hire a skip bin for the project. Residential renovations can be virtually anything, from tearing down walls and reconstructing them to removing existing flooring and installing a new one, to replacing old kitchen and bathroom cabinetry with new ones and so on. Whatever the case, there is huge potential for waste generation. 

By hiring a skip bin, you will have somewhere to put all your construction waste for the entire duration of the project. This way, you do not have to worry about heaps of rubble filling the work site, posing safety hazards and making it difficult to work smoothly. Make sure none of the construction waste that goes into your skip bin is hazardous to human health and the environment. 


For your residential landscape to look good throughout the year, you will need to give it tender loving care. If you have large, bushy trees in the yard, they will occasionally need to be trimmed and pruned, so that they can keep growing healthy and also look nice. If you have a lawn, you will definitely need to keep the grass short and tidy. These are all jobs that could potentially generate a sizeable amount of rubbish. As tree and yard waste is generally environmentally friendly, it can be placed in a hired skip bin.

Major clean-up jobs

Sometimes, you may realise that you simply have too much unused stuff or items in their home, and decide that it is time to perform a major clean-up exercise. As you sort through your household belongings, you will find that some of the unused items can be sold, some donated and some tucked away in a self-storage facility, while others need to be thrown away. If the volume of stuff that is destined for disposal is quite significant, you may need to rent a skip bin to ensure their proper disposal. Keep in mind, however, that not all household waste is acceptable, so you may need to arrange for the separate disposal of the 'unacceptable' waste.
