We have all faced the challenge of disposing of more garbage than we can fit in our bins. The government has taken great pains to cut down the amount of waste we produce, by imposing weekly limits in the form of how much we can actually fit in each bin. If you have too much garbage one week, what do you do? You could hold on to it, putting as much as you can into your bin each week until it is gone. A much better option is to hire a skip bin Ferntree Gully and get rid of it all in one go.

Of course you can dedicate a dump pile in the rear corner of your backyard with the idea that you can store your waste and even add to it over the coming months. Then when it is big enough, call someone to clear it for you or you can do it yourself if you hire a large skip bin. The problem with building up a waste pile in your backyard is that it becomes a breeding ground for insects and vermin. For spiders, cockroaches, rats and mice, your dump mound is a playground to thrive, have fun, lay eggs, raise a family and spread disease. When it comes time to get rid of your dump mound, the task is transformed from a routine waste removal job to a large, time consuming, hazardous and life-threatening job.

When we look at the price of hiring a large, 8 cubic metre skip, it seems to be the cheapest way to dispose of any excess garbage you have piled up in your garden. And whilst this is true if you fill the skip yourself, the actual effort involved in cleaning up a dangerous and unhygienic and filling a full-sized skip means you will likely want to pay somebody to undertake the task for you. A better solution would be not to wait until your garbage pile is big enough to fill a large skip but to hire a bin skip as soon as you have enough garbage to fill one. You can fill the skip yourself, negating the need to pay for extra help. Melbourne Skips has bin skip hire Ferntree Gully available for ordering.

It is a simple fact that piles of garbage, especially organic matter, start to smell as it decomposes. The more garbage you pile on, and the hotter the weather gets, the worse this smell gets. You might find that smell disgusting, but for some types of vermin such as rats and roaches, it is an invite to move into a luxury new home and start a family. Once this happens, you have a garbage pile in your garden that stinks and is also overrun with vermin. Some people might find this totally acceptable. But you can bet that even if you can live with the smell, your neighbours won’t want to, and rightly so. If one of your neighbours makes a quick phone call to the Melbourne council, you could find yourself on the receiving end of a clean-up order, meaning you will have to clean up your garbage pile immediately. However, if you were to clear up your waste pile more frequently, using a smaller bin skip, you could avoid these problems easily, and in many cases, far more cost-effectively. Melbourne Skips has just the right bin skips for this.

There is a way to solve all of the problems associated with storing up to a large skip full or garbage in a pile in your backyard. A very simple solution. All you need to do is clear the garbage away more regularly. You can hire a smaller bin skip and fill it entirely, instead of waiting for 8 cubic metres of waste to pile up.
