When to Rent a Cheap Skip Bin for a Home Project

Posted on

Hiring a cheap skip bin can mean having a good receptacle for the waste that is produced from any home improvement project or cleaning job, but you may not think that you need a skip bin for the work you have planned. Often, homeowners assume that a skip bin is needed when tearing out walls or replacing a roof without thinking that there are many other times when such a bin can be a good choice for home use. Note when it's good to rent a cheap skin bin for a home project and why they can be so useful.

1. When you want to ensure items get recycled

If you're very eco-friendly, you may want to ensure that items from a home renovation project or other such work get recycled and don't wind up in landfills. Many skip bin companies will have bins specifically meant for items that can be recycled, and you can rent these for when you're ready to clean out your home. Wood cabinets and flooring, glass from old windows or mirrors, and stone flooring or wall tiles that can be recycled might be added to the bin. Ask a skip bin company about this and how they recycle these items, and then choose one of those bins so you keep your debris out of a landfill.

2. When debris is too heavy for home trash

You may be able to fit brick, stone, and other such materials in standard garbage bags and bins, but these items are usually too heavy for your standard trash. Trash collectors often won't pick them up simply because of their weight, and of course they will tear any garbage bag you use. A skip bin can be the right choice for these heavier items, even if you don't think you need to toss out enough to actually fill an entire bin.

3. When you may want to access the rubbish you toss out

A large skip bin with a door can allow you to actually walk into the bin and access the rubbish or debris you're tossing out. This can make it easier to separate items according to what will be recycled, what someone else may want to keep, and so on. Rather than trying to organize debris or other such items in your home or while you're in the middle of a project, you can put everything in the bin and then allow a recycler to walk into the bin and pull out items or allow someone else in the family to take out those furniture pieces they want to keep, and so on. This cuts down on foot traffic in the home and reduces interruptions to your cleaning or renovating project.
