What Happens To Your Waste After It Is Picked Up By Your Skip Bin Rental Company?

The price you pay for skip bin rental service covers everything from delivery and pick-up to disposal of your rubbish. Most skip bin renters are usually simply relieved to pass the burden of rubbish disposal to someone else. Whatever happens to their waste once it is hauled from their property does not concern them anymore. But in these times when environmental consciousness is needed to help protect the environment, it is important for individual property owners to be aware of what happens to their waste post-collection.

When your residential or commercial waste reaches your skip bin rental company's premises, it is generally classified into two: recyclable or non-recyclable. The following information explains how both types of waste are managed.

Recyclable items

Skip bin rental companies provide separate bins for carrying different types of waste items for good reason. If all the waste were to go into a single type of bin, the waste would get contaminated, making it practically impossible to recover recyclable materials. Recyclables refer to the different types of waste items that can be reused. This includes shredded paper, cardboard, plastic bottles, scrap metal, and glass jars as well as wood from high-quality furniture. It would be best to reuse some of these materials yourself but since they will already be in the hands of your bin provider, they will be taken to a recycling facility that accepts them.

What are the benefits of sending the waste to a recycling centre? The waste will be given a new lease of life by being reprocessed and used to manufacture new products. This will, in turn, reduce the demand for fresh raw materials required to make the new products. Overall, this impacts positively on Mother Nature.

Non-recyclable items

Waste items that cannot be recycled are supposed to end up in the landfill. This should be the last option when it comes to rubbish disposal. But as some non-recyclables such as lead acid batteries, lead paints, and asbestos are hazardous if disposed of in the landfills, most skip bin rental businesses usually prohibit bin users from putting such materials in the rented bins. Only non-recyclables that are not hazardous to the environment can be sent to the landfill.

If you have any potentially dangerous waste you need to dispose, you had better seek assistance from a specialist waste service provider. Your local council may provide you with vital information about where you can find such a company.
