Use a skip

There are some good skip companies around.

Most skip companies charge $55-$70/m3 depending on the size of the bin. Many don't take mattresses and tyres, etc, but if they do they charge extra for them. There is also a surplus charge if you go overweight.

Skips also have some disadvantages too:

- With skip bin hire you may have to get a permit and pay extra to put it on the road/nature-strip - no problem with Trash Taxi;

- Other people often put their stuff in your skip bin when you're not looking - no problem with Trash Taxi;

- It's hard to estimate exactly what size skip bin to hire – and if you only have 5m3 of rubbish you still have to pay for a 6m3 skip. With Trash Taxi I do the estimating for you - and you only pay for what I take;

- You have to load a skip yourself - with Trash Taxi I load it for you;

- It's hard to fit bulky items like couches and tables in a skip - with Trash Taxi I can fit them into my truck and only charge you for the exact volume
