Get Rid of Your Rubbish at your own pace

When you use a bin to dispose of your rubbish you can take your time to fill it. Loading a bin is just about the same effort as sorting the waste and put it aside ready for pick-up. To collect rubbish it is necessary to separate it from the other stuff you want to keep. To dispose of your unwanted junk and rubbish, you need to collect it together to be disposed of.

Looking for Honest Quote for Rubbish Removal?

Rubbish removal has been changing and this often leads to the problem that Kristy, from Lynbrook shared:

"I have a large number of cardboard boxes that need to be taken away. There is a lot and they also need breaking up. I am looking for someone to come and take it all away over the next week, preferably asap. I would like an honest quote. The last time I had this done I was quoted on-site by someone who then charged me an additional $400 on top of what I had to pay (stating they did not advise of the tip fee on the original quote) I am happy to pay the right amount to someone to do a good job.

Rubbish removalists have a difficult business process that is based on making a rubbish removal appointment and same day rubbish removal which are difficult when travelling around Western Sydney or Melbourne.

Rubbish Removal businesses hit hard by Waste Levies & Taxes

In the past, a lot of guys offered rubbish removal and disposed of the rubbish for free. They would just take the rubbish to their local council tip, who would take the rubbish for free as they were a local house holder. Since the introduction of Land-fill Taxes and Waste Levies this is no longer possible. The Land-fills have to pay the State Government for all the rubbish that is buried in the Land-Fill and local councils are not happy to take rubbish for free when it is going to cost them (or their rate payers) cold hard cash. So now rubbish removers have to pay the same amount as skip bin businesses to get rid of their rubbish and they are passing those charges back to their customers. This is a big change to those offering a rubbish removal service.

Other aspects of change is that it is more difficult now to do a bit of rubbish removal of an evening or at the weekend on the side  Estimating the price for tipping waste is hard (difficult) as it varies a lot between areas and between commercial and municipal operators. The "hobbyist" junk remover now has to have more expertise and also needs commercial arrangements to get better tipping rates at the commercial land-fills. Tipping fees vary a lot, $400 or more. Getting it wrong creates a lot of hassle with upset customers who don't take kindly to demands for extra money, no matter whether they were or were not told about it upfront or not.

Rubbish removal challenges a work/life balance for small operators

People are becoming more aware of the value of their time. In times gone by when workers had a full time job, I think they were less aware of the value of their time. Now with a gig economy this is changing. Time has a value. Rubbish removers now have more things to think about. There is the time to quote, the tip fees and other overheads (petrol and wear and tear on their trucks etc). Then there is the cost of quoting, driving to look at a pile of rubbish to give a quote just isn't cost effective. This is why rubbish removal businesses tell you that they will give you a quote when they come to do the job. At that point, there isn't mucj space to negotiate.

All of this is leading to fewer casual rubbish removers being as active as before. And when a resource or commodity becomes "rarer" or not as easily available then prices go up.

Rubbish Removal, skip bin style

Skip bin businesses are helping fulfil the demand with their services. Customers just have to estimate what the volume of rubbish they have.

What are the key differences between traditional Rubbish removal and skip bin rubbish removal?

A traditional rubbish removal service was a man (or two) in a UTE or trucks. This was a popular side job for many people because waste disposal was free of charge to them so you were only paying for their time and some petrol. Today, rubbish removal has been commercialised by with branded franchises who pursue rubbish removal jobs offering same day rubbish removal by an experienced team to do all the hard work (hopefully not back breaking work) to do all the heavy lifting of furniture, washing machines, and other household rubbish.

Traditional rubbish removalists usually charge based on the volume of waste removal that includes the labour costs to load the vehicle ready for disposal. Being a truck off the ground it is hard work to load (whereas a bin sits on the ground). When you have more than just junk to remove rubbish dispose of, the price is likely to increase because of higher disposal charges for the waste. Heavy materials like bricks, concrete, tile, soil etc in with the rubbish so more to pay.

Can Mattresses and Tyres be Placed in Skip Bins?

In most areas it is possible to place mattresses in skip bins although there is nearly always an additional charge for their disposal. These additional charges are to cover the cost of recycling the mattresses because it is not appropriate to put the mattresses in landfill.  Mattresses and tyres do not remain buried when placed in landfill because they hold air within thin them. The mattresses and tyres do not compress and also often collected liquids and gases in them.
