There are occasions when the amount of waste you need to dispose of, is too much for your council’s weekly service. Your red wheelie bin seems hard big enough for your usual weekly waste so that when something major occurs such a garden clean up, some onsite building demolition or even the mountain of packaging left over after assembly several items of flat pack furniture. That’s when you need skip bin hire Glen Waverley.

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 become 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 Glen Waverley available for ordering.

If the garbage pile you keep adding too in your backyard is made up primarily of organic matter such as garden or food waste, it is going to smell pretty bad. The more waste you add, the hotter the weather, and the longer you leave the garbage without cleaning it up, the worse it is going to smell. That bad smell has a purpose, it is warning you that the garbage is unhygienic, and potentially toxic to humans. Unfortunately, many other animals such as rats, mice and roaches don’t find rotting garbage harmful at all and are more than happy to move in to such a great ready-made home. If you live in a neighbourhood where people live closely together, then your neighbour might be able to smell your garbage pile form their own yard. A good neighbour will politely ask you to do something about cleaning up your yard. A worse neighbour might go behind your back, direct to the council. This could result in a cleanup order being sent to your home, and you will have to clean up your yard right away. A much better way to tackle the problem of excess garbage, is to hire a small bin skip, and clean your yard more regularly. Melbourne Skips has bin skips hire Glen Waverley that are perfect for this.

Switching from a large skip to a smaller bin slip hire more frequently will solve many of the problems that we have highlighted with storing excess garbage in your backyard.
