There’s something almost therapeutic about giving your home a good old clear out; sorting through clothes you haven’t worn for decades, reminiscing over music you haven’t listened to for years and finding food at the back of your cupboards that went out of date before the invention of the internet. The thought of a clear out might put a shiver down your spine, but once you find the time and you get into the swing of things, clearing out your home can actually be quite enjoyable.
What happens once you’ve finished the sorting and the organising is when it gets tough. You have, what seems like thousands, of black bags that the council won’t pick up, some broken garden furniture, an old couch and a collection of old electronic goods. What do you do next?
Hire a Skip Bin
Hiring a skip bin is often a first choice when it comes to getting rid of your rubbish. You can load it up whilst you clear out and have it there for a few days if needs be. However, hiring a skip bin can prove expensive if you’re keeping it there for more than a day, and you can never be sure of what size skip to get. You’re charged for the whole thing, with no discounts if you only end up filling half. Plus you end up having to do all the loading yourself and you’ll also have to acquire a council permit to have the skip outside for a certain period of time. Time consuming and potentially expensive…
Do It Yourself (DIY) Rubbish pick up
Your next option would be to load up your car and take your rubbish down to your local tip yourself. This is great if you have a Ute that can hold your large furniture items, not so great if you have a brand new car and leather seats that you really don’t want to scratch with old pieces of wood, furniture and other waste.
Give yourself a break, you’ve just cleared out your entire house, you don’t want to be spending whatever energy you have left on lugging your rubbish to the tip, do you?
