3 Reasons Why Skip Bins are Hired for Concrete Waste Disposal

Australia is a bustling country, with construction happening around the clock in major cities. As a country of DIYers, we also love renovation projects – particularly here in Sydney! So, what happens to our concrete waste? Homeowners often hire small 2m3 skip bins (equivalent to about three tonnes of material). Skip bins are delivered and collected at the homeowner’s preferred time, and they do not need to worry about dumping fees. The same goes for large commercial projects – which can easily collect eight tonnes of concrete waste (or more).

Is it worth collecting and recycling concrete from residential sites? Absolutely! Recycling concrete products benefits the environment, local jobs, and future landscaping and construction project budgets.

3 Reasons Why Skip Bins are Hired for Concrete Waste Disposal

There are three main reasons skip bins are hired for concrete waste disposal.

1. Convenience

Once the bins are booked, rubbish removal and recycling can be ticked off the project’s to-do list.

2. Price

The value of avoiding multiple unloading trailers of heavy concrete is in itself highly valuable. Skip bins are also well priced and eliminate worries about excess dumping fees and time lost transporting the waste to the dump. In addition to immediate costs, diverting concrete from landfills avoids rubbish taking up more land than necessary and saves ratepayers money.

3. Sustainability

Depending on the skip bin hire company chosen, the concrete products may be recycled into new products. Concrete has an incredibly long lifespan and can be recycled multiple times.
