Junk Skip Bins: 3 Little Known Facts

Junk skip bins are incredibly popular in Brisbane. Thousands of Brisbane residents use junk skip bins to get rid of household waste whenever they undergo renovations or full home clean-ups. This is because they make waste disposal easy, effortless and affordable.

However, as a provider of junk skip bins in Brisbane, I’ve come to realise that many people don’t know much about them. Even if you’ve hired a junk skip bin yourself, chances are that you’ll be surprised to know more about them.

Today, I will list some little-known facts about junk skip bins. These facts will make you realise just how wonderful they can be, so read through till the end!

1. They don’t all come in different sizes

If you’ve ever hired a junk skip bin, you probably know that most skip bin providers have multiple skip sizes. Depending on the amount of waste you have on hand, you need to choose a skip size accordingly.

However, at 4 Waste Removals, our junk skips are available in only 2 standard sizes – 8m³ and 12m³. Instead of offering different sizes, our bins are graded with fill levels going from 2m³ up to 8m³ or 12m³. We charge you only for the amount of waste you fill into the skip. With us, you can avoid the hassle of choosing the right skip size.

2. They can be used for many applications

I’ve noticed that many people think that junk skip bins can be used only to get rid of general household waste. However, the truth is that they can be used for a variety of applications.

While disposing general household waste is the most common application for junk skips, they can also be used to dispose e-waste, home appliances, furniture and commercial waste. And additionally, they don’t have to only contain ‘junk’. They can also be used to dispose a mix of green waste and general waste.

Do note however, that there are restrictions on what you can dispose of in junk skips. At 4 Waste Removals, we don’t permit certain items which include heavy waste materials, bricks, tiles, soil, concrete and timber in our junk skips.

3. They are very affordable

One little known fact about junk skip bins in Brisbane is that they are incredibly affordable. Yes – hiring a junk skip to dispose your waste is far cheaper than arranging for transportation and disposing waste by yourself. Plus, it’s convenient and saves your time and effort as well!
