Are you in the process of renovating your home or you’re planning on carrying out a renovation soon? According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, 58% of homeowners have undergone renovations in the past 10 years. Given this statistic, no doubt you’re about due or looking to renovate your home in the not too distant future.
Before you jump into your renovation, be aware that you will need to dispose of a lot of waste and junk material. The easiest and most cost-effective way of getting rid of waste is by hiring a walk-in skip bin. How do I know this? It is because I supply walk-in skip bins all across Brisbane Southside and I deal with waste collection from home renovations on a daily basis.

Determine what is to be thrown away
In all my years of experience as a rubbish removal expert, I’ve often met customers who hire rubbish collection services before determining what they need to throw away. Make sure that you don’t make this mistake. When you’re renovating your home, you should always separate salvageable waste from waste that can be thrown away. Salvageable waste (e.g. plywood, etc.) may not be of use to you, but it can be used by other people for a different purpose. Other waste that cannot be reused for certain can easily be disposed of using junk walk-in skip bins. Remember – the lesser waste you put into a skip bin, the more savings you make.
What can and what can’t be put in junk skips
I’m often asked by customers what can and what can’t be disposed in our junk skip bins. While we accept all types of household waste, including green waste in our junk walk-in skip bins, heavy waste is not permitted. Construction waste such as concrete, bricks, soil, tiles, timber and other related materials cannot be put into our junk skips. We understand that renovations may yield such heavy waste, so if you have heavy materials to get rid of, talk to our experts and request a heavy-duty skip. We will provide you an appropriate solution depending on your heavy waste type. We accept all other general household wastes, such as carpets, plasterboard, fixtures, fittings and similar materials in our junk walk-in skip bins.
Calculate the amount of waste
Once you have determined what renovation waste you need to dispose of, you should then calculate the amount of waste you have. This will give you an idea of what size skip bin you need. Calculating the amount of waste you have is not too difficult – simply pile your waste into a heap. Next, measure the length, width and height of the pile. Multiply all three measurements to arrive at the volume of waste. You can then hire a skip bin that is slightly larger than the volume of waste you have.
