What trash removal options are there?
Use Trash Taxi
A good option – picked up and loaded for you. Easy.
Hire a skip
They can be a good option, but be aware:
- Most skip companies can charge $95-$110 per m3 depending on the size of the bin
They charge extra for mattress, tyres and heavy weights
- If you want to put it on the nature strip you may need to pay extra for a permit
- Other people sometimes fill up your bin at night
- It can be hard to estimate exactly what size you require – too small or too big?
- It’s hard to fit in bulky items like couches
- You have to load the skip yourself
