You want a junk free everyday then you can contact rubbish removal Northern Beaches. Home improvement projects are rapidly becoming the norm amongst homeowners in Australia and the Western world in general due to a combination of factors including:

– Growing number of DIY stores
– Cheaper materials/tools due to the China effect
– Growth in instructional DIY internet sites and magazines

The result of this growth in home DIY improvement projects? More rubbish and waste that needs to be collected from the residential consumers. With this in mind, the skip/bin business will be doing a roaring trade. However, for the domestic market, is a skip hire the best solution?

In Europe and the US, skip hire is dwindling for the growing majority of domestic home improvement projects. Due to advances in polypropylene innovation, a new breed of skip has emerged – a skip bag (proly bag). These are essentially plastic bags made out of polypropylene and have incredible strength and durability. They can handle all kinds of waste including bricks, roof tiles, ceramics, gravel, you can even throw a bath tub in there. They are initially flat-packed and are roughly A3 size. However, they expand to 2.5 cubic metres and can contain up to 1.5 tonnes of debris. Lapordata (the International Materials Testing Institute) testing on the new skip bag which has just been introduced into Melbourne and Sydney in Australia has been tested up to 9 tonnes. Yes, that wasn’t a typo, the poly bag passed a stress test at 9 tonnes. As the the skip bag’s marketing messages point out on their website, it really has the strength of a steel skip yet the convenience of a bag. Other brands common in the US and Europe are generally able to support a load of 4 tonnes however, crane trucks are only capable of lifting 2 tonnes so as a rule, the rubbish within a skip bag should not be in excess of 1.5 tonnes.

These heavy duty polypropylene bags really are taking off. In USA alone, skip bags delivered over USD $130M retail sales for a single brand through hardware retailer LOWES within a 6 month period.

UK company Hippowaste currently achieving sales of 18,000 units per month (B&Q) with a growth rate of >10% per month. And if those figures aren’t startling enough, the USA retail sales growth of skip bags has gone up 230% in the past 12 months.

So why are these bags preferable to traditional metal skips for your every day DIY enthusiast? Here are ten reasons right off the bat.

  1. Cheaper than a skip. Skips vary in costs according to the location however after contacting a number of skip hire companies within the central Sydney area, a 7 day hire of a 2 cubic metre mini skip costs in excess of $200AUD. A skip bag as a comparison, costs $40AUD plus $130 collection charge.
  2. Proly bags are conveniently available in stores from leading hardware stores and can even be purchased online.
  3. Proly bags are flat packed until needed. Skip bags are approximately 50cm x 50cm x 5cm and naturally can be stored anywhere at home or in the boot of a car.
  4. No rental time restrictions. Large DIY projects put you under pressure to get the task completed as the cost of a skip increases on a daily basis. However, use a proly bag and you can spend as long as you want doing your rubbish removal project. Spend weeks, months even. There is no extra charge.
  5. No need to take a trailer to the tip or waiting around for skips to be delivered. Everything is done at the customers pace.
  6. Use in your garden or on your driveway – helps keep your property tidy and minimise damage caused by heavy metal skips.
  7. No hidden additional dumping fees when using a skip bag in Australia. Some skip companies charge extra for the cost of dumping different types of waste e.g. bricks/gravel.
  8. Great for tight spaces. The skip bags are collected using crane trucks that can even lift up the bags from behind a garden fence.
  9. Skips parked on the street are open to abuse by other people. How many times do you see skips with other people’s rubbish thrown in? By keeping your skip bag on the drive way, or on your front lawn, there is less exposure to this kind of opportunistic abuse.
  10. These bags are environmentally friendly – a truck can only service one metal skip at a time. Several skip bags can be picked up by the same truck and taken to a waste collection centre in one single trip. This reduces the carbon footprint.

Households throughout the world are generating more and more rubbish with the advent of increases in DIY home improvement projects and the affect of our materialistic society. These new polypropylene bags are revolutionising the way the domestic market dispose of their rubbish and evidence of that is widely seen in the US and Europe. Australia are catching on and the skip bag is the final step in the DIY consumer experience – waste generated by DIY projects requires large volume rubbish removal.
