Waste is piling up, and you need to get rid of it – should you hire a skip bin? If you’re even asking the question, the answer is probably yes! Below we’ve picked out the top seven benefits of using a skip bin:
Benefit 1: Cost-Effective For Short-Term Needs - Using a van to make multiple visits to the local recycling facility is neither practical nor cost-efficient. With many sizes to choose from, a skip is a practical way of getting the short-term waste clearance you need for a low cost.
Benefit 2: Saves Time - Without a skip, you’ll need to dispose of your rubbish using your own van (or a hired one). On the face of it, this seems cheaper, but how much is your time worth? You’ll need to load it up, drive it to the local waste facility, queue up (and we all know how long that can take), and then unload and drive back – and you’ll have to do that multiple times.
With a skip, all you need to do is fill it up, saving a huge amount of time.
Benefit 3: Correct and Legal Disposal of Waste - When you sort out your waste yourself, you are legally responsible for ensuring it is disposed of correctly and legally. For those who don’t dispose of waste regularly, this can be an added complication and stress.
When you hire a skip bin, the company you hire it from takes on that responsibility and you no longer need to worry about it – it becomes somebody else’s problem!
Benefit 4: Good For The Environment - When you dispose of your own waste, you’ll need to sort it and recycle the different materials. Not only does this take time, but if you’re not an expert you’re likely to miss a few things (or put a few things in that can’t be recycled – just as bad). Because we deal with waste every day, we ensure that everything that can be recycled, is, which is good for the environment.
Benefit 5: Reduce Handling Time For Your Employees/Family - When you dispose of rubbish yourself, your employees (or family) must handle each piece of waste multiple times before it is disposed of. Each time someone handles this waste, there’s a risk of injury. Using a skip cuts down on risk for you and those around you: touch it once, put it in, then forget about it.
Benefit 6: Keep Home or Business Clean and Hazard-Free - It’s not just your employees or family that are at risk from all that waste. Without a skip, unsightly piles of rubbish can quickly mount up. If a customer or another person gets hurt because of this rubbish, you could be liable. Additionally, even if there is no hazard, piles of rubbish are bad for your brand and unpopular with your neighbours. Skips won’t win any design awards, but they’re a lot better than a disordered pile of rubbish!
Benefit 7: Stress-Free End-to-End Service - When you hire a skip bin, you’re getting more than just a bin. You get a complete end-to-end expert disposal service for your waste. It’s peace of mind that your waste is being disposed of correctly, ethically and legally and that you don’t have to do anything about it.
