Whether you’re spring cleaning, giving the yard a spruce up, or running a construction site, the last thing you want is all that rubbish lying around, taking up space and causing a hazard. Thankfully, rubbish removal in Sydney is easy – and affordable – and you can choose from plenty of options.
Who Should Remove The Rubbish?
There are a few options when it comes to rubbish removal in Sydney.
Take It Yourself
You might consider taking your trash to the tip yourself if you have the means. There are a few problems you might face with this, though, particularly if you have large bulky items or are unsure where to take your trash. You’ll need transport to start with – a ute or truck, and someone to help you lift large furniture. Also, you’ll need to research the types of rubbish to find out what your local tip accepts and what should be donated.
Aside from the weekly dump trucks, Councils across Sydney also offer a pick-up service for large items that can’t fit in a bin. This is called a “Council Clean Up”. Generally, it means you put your items out on the curb and council trucks will come along and take them away, but it’s usually only once or twice a year. Alternatively, you may be able to book the service online or over the phone, and your Council will give you specific instructions.
With skip bins, you rent them for a few days or a week (or longer), fill it with all your rubbish, and then the provider will come and take it away on a given day. Bins vary in size and can fit plenty of rubbish in them. The only problem with this option is that it also takes up a lot of space on your lawn, and you have to do all the trash removal and lifting yourself. If you only half fill the skip bin, then you’ve paid for empty space! And if the skip bin is placed on the nature strip or roadway, then you’ll need a council permit too. This can add to your costs.
By far the easiest option, hiring a company that specialises in rubbish removal will save you time and energy. They already know what you can recycle, what goes to landfill and what can be donated – and they’ll do so. They have teams of experienced people who can lift heavy items and dispose of hazardous materials (where possible and provided they have advance notice). And if they’re a company like Cheapest Load of Rubbish, they’ll even clean up any remaining mess afterwards.
Factors That Could Impact The Cost
- The removal process: There are a variety of ways you can get rid of your rubbish, and the removal method you choose will impact the cost in general, as well as your time and energy.
- The type of rubbish: While common household rubbish can be removed quite easily, things like car tyres and liquid waste could add to the price for removal. Construction debris such as bricks and roof tiles may also require additional fees, along with removing chemicals (if possible), car batteries, flammable liquids and so on.
- The urgency: If you require your rubbish removed after hours, you could end up paying more; or for a free pick-up from Council you’ll have to book weeks ahead. Council will only collect residential rubbish, while businesses will need to order a collection from a rubbish removalist like Cheapest Load of Rubbish.
So, How Much Does Rubbish Removal Cost?
If we go back to the types of rubbish removal –
If you take it to the tip yourself, you’re might save a few dollars, but you’ll need to take a few hours out of your day to do it all. And time is money. You’ll also need to be aware of disposal fees at your local tip, which vary from a few dollars to a few hundred dollars.
Council Pick-Up is generally free. However, it isn’t as readily available as the other methods, so you could be waiting for a month. It’s important to know that your Council may not take all kinds of rubbish.
Skip bins, on the other hand, will cost you, with the price depending on the size you want, how long you want it for, and the type of rubbish you are disposing of.
With professional hand-loading services like Cheapest Load of Rubbish, it depends on what you need to get rid of and the quantity.
