Step One – Stocktake

Before you do anything, the first step to take in a home declutter or garden overhaul is to conduct a thorough stocktake of everything. A stocktake will allow you to evaluate the condition of everything to decide if it’s staying or going.

Decluttering Your Home

If your goal is to declutter your home or remove excess rubbish and junk from around your house, start by going through your home, room by room. List everything you want to remove in each room, including the garage and shed. We all use these areas as common graveyards for unwanted items.

It’s important to note, rubbish removal in Brisbane isn’t just about removing “rubbish”. It’s about removing anything that you no longer want or need. This may include perfectly good items that you no longer have use for, things you have outgrown such as clothes, of the kid’s bikes or sporting equipment, and hand-me-downs that it’s time to say goodbye to.

The key is not to focus on only broken items but anything sitting around gathering dust and serving no purpose.

If your clutter has grown out of hands, then you may need to be ruthless in your stocktake. It helps to have the help of a friend help in such cases as they can make objective decisions without any emotions involved. If you are somewhat of a ‘hoarder’, I recommend you also read ‘Skip Bins For Hoarders Rubbish Removal’ from our sister site, 4 Waste.

Overhauling your Garden

If your goal is to overhaul your garden, the approach will be a little different. You’ll want to access the current situation and decide how big of an overhaul you’re going to undertake. Will it be a small tidy up, trimming back overgrown branches and foliage? Or, will it be a massive project, cutting sizable trees back to their trucks, removing some trees altogether, plus removing masses of dead foliage?

Suppose your garden is severely overgrown, to the point that there is likely non-organic matter hiding within it (such as car parts and tyres). In that case, you’ll want to try and find these ahead of making a start as it will affect the best-suited solution for your rubbish removal needs.

Step Two – Get Prepared

Once you have completed your stocktake and clearly understand what’s staying and what’s going, you need to start getting organised and prepared.

Decide if it’s a job you can do on your own or if you need to call on a favour from a friend to help. For example, if you have heavy items or items that require two people to move, you’ll want to have either a reliable moving trolley or a mate to help.

As mentioned, if you have hoarding tendencies and can’t trust yourself to be strong and stick to your guns and throw things away when crunch time comes. It will be beneficial to have a friend help you during the actual project also.

Aside from help, you’ll also need to organise rubbish removal in Brisbane. Meaning, you’ll have to set a date for the project and organise your walk-in skip bin from 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins.

Hiring a Walk-In Skip Bin for Rubbish Removal

When it comes to hiring a walk-in skip bin for rubbish removal in Brisbane, the process couldn’t be more straightforward. However, this is only if you choose 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins!

Whether you need a Walk-In Junk Skip Bin or a Walk-In Garden Skip Bin is the only real decision you need to make. And, and doing so is easy. If your stocktake found you’re getting rid of general junk or general junk and garden waste, you’ll need a Walk-In Junk Skip Bin. However, if your stocktake found you only have garden waste (100% organic green waste), you’ll need a Walk-In Garden Skip Bin.

We recognised the number one problem with hiring a skip bin early on: not knowing what skip bin size to hire. As such, we designed our hire service to be so flexible that you don’t need to know what size you need. So long as you hire a skip bin smaller than you think you need, you won’t have to worry about getting a skip bin bigger than you need. You can simply fill the skip with your rubbish, and you’ll be charged only for how much rubbish you place into the skip, not the full size of the skip bin. Please read ‘Understanding 4 Waste’s Skip Bin Pricing Structure’ for an in-depth overview of how our skip bin pricing works. A fail-safe size is our smallest skip bin, 2m3. Doing so means, whether you actually have 2m3, 12m3 or 20m3 or rubbish to remove, you’ll only end up paying for exactly how much waste you have and not a cent more.

You can view our sizes and pricing and place your skip bin order here.

We offer next day delivery, but to ensure we have skip bins available for your needs, we suggest you place an order 3-5 days out from your project date.

Step Three – Rubbish Removal

You now know what rubbish you’re removing, and you have a skip bin on-site to aid your rubbish removal in Brisbane. Next is the process of removing it from your home and premises and loading it into one of our skip bins.

If you’re decluttering, all you have to do now is follow your stocktaking list, loading each item one by one into the skip.

If you’re overhauling your garden, you can start from one end to the other, loading the Walk-In Garden Skip Bin as you go. Just be mindful of our Terms and Conditions – No logs to be larger than 150mm in diameter.
