How Skip Bin Hire Prices Vary and Why

So the decision is made to make your next clean up a bit easier and get a skip or two. A few things will spring to mind apart from the sheer joy of having a large amount of junk cleared from your life.

If you’re new to this there will be undoubtedly a series of questions on rapid fire.

How much does it cost? What can I expect? Can I get a better deal?

You’ve made the first move by the decision alone, so a bit of forethought and understanding of the industry and the way pricing is structured will go a long way to making the experience a better one.

You may not think these things are important but before everyone's eyes glaze over like grandma after her third brandy, let’s start with some basic info.

Factors Which Affect Pricing

Skip bin companies base their piecing on a few factors.

  • Location

It makes sense that fewer suppliers in areas will predicate price differences simply because it takes longer to get the bin to premises located outside of Skip bin hire company's location.

  • Material type

The types of waste disposal can affect the price you pay. Generally, it is due to disposal costs.

  • Size Matters

From 2 meter bins holding around two small trailer loads to 30-meter bins holding a whopping 30 small trailer loads, the pricing is scaled and relative to your needs.

  •  Other Factors

Supply and demand dictate pricing in this industry, the same as many others. Additional costs incurred by skip bin hire companies also add to the overall picture. Disposal levies imposed by the EPA is one example.

Who is the EPA?

The New South Wales Environment Protection Authority (EPA) is the regulatory body governing the environment.

The EPA was born in 1991 from the Protection of the Environment Administration Act 1991 and its primary goal is to be an efficient and well-regarded protector of the environment.

Changes have led to the re-establishing of the EPA with a shift from pollution to more of a conservation mindset.

In 2012 the EPA gained further powers to enact a clearly defined mandate.

Today, this body aims to have all business conduct themselves with a view to supporting the environment and human health ongoing.

Currently, NSW carries the highest disposal levies in the country, set by the EPA.

Consequently, these levies will affect pricing.

Want Negotiated Pricing?

Are you a super-user?

Establishing a great relationship with your skip bin hire company is a sound way to better pricing. A professional supplier understands the need to keep costs to a minimum. Effectively balance spending and budget constraints by negotiated pricing for the best of both worlds.

Plan Ahead

Disposal of waste is a large part of any project. Ignoring this simple fact can lead to problems you’d rather do without.

If you are particularly mindful of costs, and time is on your side, it might be worth hiring skip bins during low peak times.

As pricing fluctuates due to demand it’s important to have a good idea of your schedule. Planning when you might need a skip can save you money best put to other causes. The low season brings about a way to get a great deal

Having an idea about your supplier and general information on skips bins and pricing variation leads to a successful job without any nasty little surprises.

Expectations and costs remain established.

It is an assumption that things will cost less or that a supplier’s process will suit you without prior consultation that leads to issues.

Be skip aware.

Fair and Equitable

No one likes to feel like they’re being ripped off. It’s the one thing that will ruin any business relationship before it even starts.

Equally as frustrating is having prices constantly change based on phony excuses.

Know what you’re getting upfront.  Don’t be shy. Ask the questions you need to and arm yourself with the correct info.

The best partnerships are formed from a foundation of mutual trust.
