Renovating Your Home or Business?

When you’re ready for that long planned renovation, don’t forget to consider how you’ll dispose of all the debris and rubbish. Whether your project is for your home or your business, or whether it is a small or large renovation, having the right sized skip bin from Backyard Bins on site will help you to:

  • Keep the work site safe
  • Help you to stay on schedule
  • Make cleanup effortless

Stay on Schedule

All of the old materials will quickly turn into piles of rubbish that cannot reasonably fit into rubbish bags, and the remains may even be restricted items that cannot be placed in with regular garbage removal items. Without the convenience of a skip bin from Backyard Bins you’ll need to make a lot of trips to the local recycling centre or landfill.

That will require a lot of time to keep the different types of rubbish separated so that they can be disposed of in accordance with your local recycling regulations. Then you have to bag the small objects and tie the larger objects together before you load everything into your car or truck.

Having a skip bin close at hand lets you toss all of the debris you want removed without ever needing to get in your car. Backyard Bins will bring your skip bin to you and will come back to tow it away. That means more time to get your renovation completed safely and on schedule.

Safe Work Area

Having a skip bin from Backyard Bins conveniently placed close to the work site lets you dispose of sharp waste materials like splintered pieces of wood, rusty or bent nails, pieces of glass, metal scraps, tiles, bricks, chunks of concrete, or any other object that can cause injuries to anyone walking around the area.

Larger objects like cabinets, shelves, window frames, and doors can easily be placed in a skip bin so that the work area remains neat and workable. A skip bin removes the need to let old material pile up close to where you are working and that eliminates the need to search through a lot of disposable debris to find tools or new materials.

Night Cleanup

At the end of the day, before the work crew leaves or you stop for the evening, there will be rubbish or debris that needs to be thrown away to keep the renovation site clear of potential hazards and ready for the next day’s work. That chore becomes effortless when you have a skip bin from Backyard Bins. Just take the rubbish out and toss it into the skip bin.

Renovation Waste FAQs

Asbestos is one of the materials you could encounter during a renovation unless you have a newly built home. Asbestos is quite tricky because you cannot recycle it. You should also make sure you do not handle it on your own, especially if you do not know how to dispose of it properly. It’s essential to separate asbestos from other types of renovation waste you have produced. If you require asbestos handling services, please do not hesitate to contact Backyard Bins.

Talk to contractors and waste transporters about waste management before the renovation project commences. Ensure that the waste will be transported to a facility that accepts the rubbish you produce during renovation.
The simplest solution, however, is to hire a skip bin. Pick a mixed waste bin that allows you to dump common renovation rubbish, such as drywall, old furniture, plaster wood, and other types of junk. For safe and efficient waste management, we recommend maintaining a system when disposing of rubbish in the bin. Keep like materials together, which can aid in separating recyclables and non-recyclables.

Timber, concrete, and bricks are among the things you produce after renovating a house or office space. At a glance, you can already tell there are a lot of items that you can easily repurpose. Renovation projects produce tons of waste, but you can take down old parts and refine certain materials. That way, you can find materials that you can recycle and reuse.
Some of the waste materials that you can repurpose are wood and boards. While it is often convenient for many people to throw these things into the bin right away, they are incredibly versatile. That means they can be repurposed in many ways. For example, you can use your old boards for strapping. Ensure that you only keep good quality materials with suitable dimensions to suit another project.

Correctly managing renovation waste is essential; otherwise, it can be detrimental to the environment and human health.  Australia has stopped incinerating waste, which means most of the rubbish generated, such as renovation waste, is dumped in landfills. Therefore, it is not illegal to do so. Around 40% of waste (equivalent to 19 million tonnes) comes from renovation, construction, or demolition.
There is no exact tally of landfill sites in the country, but it’s believed that about 600 exist. Some are in Western Australia, including small and unregulated landfill sites.
