If you need to remove rubbish from your home or business, you might be wondering if you should hire a skip bin or drop the rubbish off yourself to the Bayside Waste and Recycling Centre. Hiring a skip bin involves having us deliver a skip size of your choice to your home where you are free to fill it with rubbish at your own pace before it is collected at the end of the hire period. On the other hand, delivering your waste to the waste and recycling centre involves driving through the centre and dropping your own waste off.

In our latest blog, we’re sharing some of the benefits of hiring a skip bin vs delivering to the waste and recycling centre to help you decide which option suits your requirements the best.

Hire Skip Bin Vs Waste and Recycling

Benefits of Skip Bin Hire:

Hiring a skip bin is one of the simplest and most cost-effective ways of discarding of household waste. Available in a range of different sizes and varieties to suit the type of rubbish you’re discarding, skip bins are really versatile and suitable for most people’s waste removal purposes.

At CopperRock, we have small and large skip bins available in 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 cubic metre varieties which can be used for general, building/construction and garden waste depending on the type of bin you select. This guide will help you select the right skip bin size for your project.

Simply order a skip bin and wait for it to arrive. Once your bin is full, let our team know and we can come and pick it up – it’s as simple as that.

Skip bins are the best option for people with a large amount of rubbish. In addition to holding a lot more volume than your car boot, they allow you to work through your home room-by-room at your own pace, filling the bin with rubbish as you go. You don’t have to work intermittently due to your car being full and needing to take a load to the waste centre.

Another benefit of skip bins is that you don’t have to separate your rubbish – we do that for you! If you have a variety of different materials like green waste, household items, bricks, old furniture and more – you can toss it all into the bin and our team will separate your trash into recyclable and landfill when we transport it back to our recycling centre.

Currently, our skip bin hire service is available for Melbourne Bayside residents only. If you’re interested to order a skip bin, be sure to get a quote using our skip bin calculator tool, or by contacting our team at (03) 09585 4385.

Waste Recycling

Waste & Recycling

Another waste removal service we offer at CopperRock is for you to visit our waste and recycling facility to discard of your rubbish yourself. By visiting our Waste & Recycling centre, you are able to simply drive in and discard of your rubbish at each of the different stations.

This option is great for those who want to save skip bin hire costs and are instead happy to drive in and offload the rubbish themselves. It is also more suitable for smaller loads of rubbish, as well as loads of rubbish that are all from one category – for example a boot of cardboard, or a trailer filled only with green waste.

As our skip bins hire service is only available to Melbourne Bayside residents, our waste and recycling centre also gives residents outside of Melbourne’s Bayside a chance to utilise our services.

Before you enter, it’s important to sort your rubbish and be aware of the costs associated with some of the rubbish you’re discarding. To learn more about this, visit our waste & recycling page.

Which to Choose?

Now that you know the difference between our skip bin hire service and our waste & recycling service, you can decide on what the best waste removal option is for you. If you are a Melbourne Bayside resident who is short on time, the best option may be a skip bin delivery for all your rubbish. This way, you can discard of rubbish at your own pace, without even having to leave the house. On the other hand, visiting our waste & recycling centre is a great option for those who do not live in Melbourne’s Bayside and are unable to utilise our skip bin hire service, or for those who have smaller loads of rubbish to discard.
