When most people think about removing rubbish and junk from their homes, a tip run is often the first option that comes to mind. What many people don’t know is that there is another way to get rid of your household rubbish – by hiring a skip bin. A skip bin is a large container that you can hire to store all your rubbish until it’s ready to be collected and disposed of.
Here are five reasons why you should avoid taking your rubbish to the tip yourself and rather hire a skip bin.

1. You can’t fit much in a car
When you choose to do a tip run, how you transport your household junk and rubbish from your home to the tip is on you. For most of us, this means you have only your car as means of transport.
While it may seem convenient to simply load the car and drive to the tip, a tip run is never that easy. For example, a car is a small vehicle and doesn’t offer much space for large items. Moreover, if you have a LOT of junk and rubbish to remove, then you’re up for multiple trips to the tip, which takes time and petrol.
However, you’ll have no problem regarding space by using a junk skip bin for your rubbish removal. From 2m3 to 20m3 in size, you can remove any amount of rubbish or even an entire house, without even leaving your house.
2. You have to hire or borrow a ute/trailer for large amounts of rubbish
If you have large items to remove, such as couches, old whitegoods etc, they’re not going to fit in your car. In such cases, you’re then going to have to borrow or hire a ute or trailer for your rubbish removal. Now, a simple tip run is a lot less simple. You have to factor in additional time picking up and returning your borrowed or hired vehicle. You also have to be extra careful driving it because it’s not yours and an accident could be very costly.
With a skip bin, you don’t have anything to worry about. There’s no picking up or returning anything; it’s delivered to you and then collected by the skip bin hire company.
3. You have to load and UNload your rubbish
Household junk and rubbish won’t magically appear in your vehicle ready for a tip run. You have to load it, which granted, you also have to do with a skip bin. However, the difference here is, with a tip run, you also then have to unload the rubbish from your vehicle or trailer into the designated waste area at the tip. You may have to visit various areas also because they are usually split up into areas such as green waste, concrete, general waste, e-waste etc.
A skip bin allows you to load and forget. The rest of the work is up to the skip bin hire company to complete for you.
4. You have to drive to the tip and then line up when you arrive
A tip run also means that once you have loaded the vehicle and driven to the tip, you then have to wait in a queue till you can get in and then unload your junk. If your local tip is anything like mine, you can be waiting a good 30 mins on a weekend, if not longer, because you and half the region had the same idea.
This is one step you won’t have to worry about with skip bin hire as the skip bin hire company does it for you.
A simple ‘top run’ is not as simple as it sounds. You have to find the time to do it, borrow or hire a ute to transport all your rubbish, and make sure you don’t hurt yourself loading and unloading everything into the ute.
