>> Dec 21, 2017



Perhaps you’ve been thinking about updating the look of your kitchen. Thinking of freeing up some space by taking down an interior wall? If you have been contemplating about doing something new to your house, then it must be time for a home renovation.

When you are undertaking a remodelling project, you have to deal with a number of things—from preparing the budget to finding a reliable contractor. There are so many details to take care of and you can easily neglect one of the essential aspects of renovations—proper rubbish disposal.

Whether you are replacing your kitchen tiles or you are remodelling your living room, your construction will produce waste. It is often that homeowners produce more rubbish than what they initially expected. Without proper waste disposal planning, insulation, old cabinetry, discarded concrete and other rubbish will pile up in your backyard or garage. So, even before commencing your project, you should decide whether you’ll hire a service provider for waste disposal in Perth or you are taking care of the rubbish yourself.

There are many ways you can properly dispose of your renovation waste. Take a look at some cost-effective options we’ve prepared and see which works best for you.

Sort Usable Items and Donate them

What you may consider as waste can be another person’s treasure. This is also true for your home renovation waste. If the items or materials you are removing from your home are still in good condition, you do not necessarily have to throw them away. There may be other people who can still find good use for your old items.
If you think that the items are still usable, visit a donation centre and ask if they can accept them. It is worth knowing that these donation centres accept donated cabinets, light fixtures, usable appliances and even doors and windows, as well as other materials which can still be used for construction projects.

On the other hand, before you donate the items, remember to call the donation centres first. Just to be sure, ask them what kind of items they accept for donation. Also, you have to be careful in handling the items. For instance, if you plan on donating your kitchen cabinets, you have to let the contractor know. In this way, instead of simply swinging their sledgehammer, they will handle the items with care.

Drive to the Landfill

If you want to avoid paying for labour costs, you can drive to the rubbish tip and dump your renovation waste yourself. This would save you money if you have a vehicle that can handle all the rubbish you’re dumping. On the other hand, if you’re dumping huge amounts of renovation waste, hire a flatbed truck or trailer so you can get rid of the rubbish on a single trip.

Before you bring your waste to the rubbish tip, it would be advisable if you sort it first. Remember that there are designated stations for every type of waste. There are separate stations for old computers, large appliances, copper and scrap metal. So, remember to contact your local rubbish tip and acquire the information you need.

Sell, Give Away or Repurpose

One of the most cost-effective solutions to removing waste is giving away materials or items from your home. For instance, if you have a friend or relative who’s moving out for the first time, you can ask them if they’d like to take your old oven or cabinets. You can save yourself a trip to the rubbish tip or donation centre because those who want your items will be the one to come to your house to pick them up. You can also ask your neighbours if they’d want to take your old bricks. They can use it for their patio or barbeque pit.

You can also repurpose valuable materials. For instance, if you are tearing down an interior wall, do not throw away the timber. It is a valuable resource which you can turn into a hall table or a cabinet. Just go online and you will find several tutorials on repurposing materials like this.

Hire your Local Garbage Collector

The other option would be to hire your local garbage collection service to pick up your renovation waste. For a fee, they can remove your bulk waste. Just tell them the type of rubbish or items you are planning to get rid of. Let them know the amount of your waste, as well as the pickup location.

This is indeed an inexpensive option of waste disposal in Perth and other areas. However, there are still some drawbacks. Since they have plenty of waste to deal with, you would have to work around the garbage collector’s schedule. This also means that you’d have to collect the waste in a pile. If you do not have enough room in your garage, your waste might be left lying around your property. This is hazardous for the people working in the renovation, as well as for your loved ones.

Hire Skip Bins for Convenient and Cost-Effective Renovation Waste Disposal


It can be stressful and overwhelming to take care of a renovation project. On the other hand, you can conveniently get rid of waste by hiring a skip bin. It is also practical and cost-effective. You can call a skip bin hire company and book your bin. They will deliver the weather-proof skips to your location which you can keep in your property for four to seven days, giving you enough time to collect your waste. This also means that your rubbish won’t simply be left lying around your property during your renovation project.

Once the bins are filled, the skip bin hire company will pick up your waste. Your responsibility for your rubbish ends there. However, you do not have to worry whether your waste is properly dealt with. Most skip bin hire companies work with licensed sorting facilities which salvage the rubbish for redistribution, recycling or reuse.

There are many ways you can reduce the cost of your home renovation waste disposal. What’s important is you find the option that works best for you.
