Household waste removal is something that everyone needs to deal. Here, in Brisbane, most people either take their rubbish to the tip themselves or they hire a mini skip to get rid the job done.

Given that mini skip hire in Brisbane my bread and butter, I’m often asked why hiring mini skips are better than taking rubbish to the tip. Today, I will outline the pros and cons of household waste removal and compare it to mini skip hire. Hopefully, this article will convince you that mini skips are a much better option than driving waste to the tip yourself.

Going to the tip

Those who have never hired a mini skip before think that driving rubbish to the tip will be much more convenient and cost-effective. However, this is not true at all.

To take your rubbish to the tip, you either need to own a truck or UTE or hire one. You’ll also need to bear fuel costs and tip fees. In addition to all of this, you’ll also need to take out the time to gather your waste, load it onto your vehicle, drive to the tip offload your junk and then drive back. Let’s face it – this can be quite a time consuming and costly. Also, you face a risk of injuring yourself in collecting your waste and transporting it to the tip.

There are no advantages of taking rubbish to the tip yourself, other than the fact that you can do it at your leisure. But as a waste management professional, let me tell you that you’ll end up delaying the process and your waste will pile up. There’s a much easier solution to all of this – mini skip hire.
