Differences Between Domestic and Commercial Bin Hire

November 10, 2019

Looking for a good skip bin service company but don’t know where to start?

Before choosing a skip bin service company to hire, make sure you have a good idea of how much waste you’re actually going to get rid of.

Generally, if it’s going to be a home project such as a minor renovation or general clear out DIY project, you’ll be needing a smaller skip bin for domestic use. For bigger projects such as construction work, demolitions, or hauling business wastes — commercial skip bins will be needed.

Why It Matters

There are strict government rules and regulations with regards to overfilling skip bins. These rules are enforced to make sure that there is no risk of waste spilling out onto the road when the bins are transported to landfill sites. The safety of other drivers on the road and the environment is a top priority.

Domestic Skip Bins

As a general guide, skip bins between 2 cubic-meters to 4 cubic meters are suitable for home DIY projects, small home renovations, gardening, landscaping, small house clearance projects and the like.
Commercial Skip Bins

Bigger projects involving bigger volumes of waste will, of course, need bigger skip bins. Skip bins between 6 cubic-meters to 10 cubic meters are better suited for commercial space or building renovations, bigger house renovation projects, and large scale construction work.

Hazardous Waste

It is also extremely important that you know what kind of waste will be collected. By law, there are certain types of waste that need to be collected separately from regular waste and some even totally prohibited from being placed in skip bins. One example is material containing asbestos.

If prohibited waste is found during transportation, the entire load can either be taken back to your place or it may be transported to a different disposal site where additional charges will be imposed upon you.

If you are unsure of the volume or even the type of waste you will be disposing of, talk to us. We would be more than happy to help and give you your best options. Call us! We’re available 24/7.

Having been let down by other businesses, we needed an office strip out in a hurry, so we called Bargain Bins - they provided us with a great service, and ensured a smooth end of tenancy. The strip down and clean up was to a very high standard, and when we move offices again - I know who to call.

Bargain Bins' sums it up really - they deliver exactly what they say they're going to, at the time they promise. Great value for money compared to other quotes I had, overall I was very happy with their service, and I'd certainly use them again the next time I need a skip bin or tipper!.
