A recent survey revealed that 48% of Australians expect to struggle financially over the next few years. As such, most families are likely looking for ways to reduce household costs. Rubbish removal is one area you can capitalize on if you want to reduce your household expenses. With the right strategy, you can lower rubbish removal rates without compromising service delivery quality.
Improve Rubbish Accessibility
How accessible is your rubbish? Garbage removalists may ask the question because it determines the cost of services. Therefore, you must make waste accessible if you want to enjoy heavily-discounted rates. For instance, if you keep your bin in the backyard or the basement, rubbish removalists need to get into your property to retrieve it. In most cases, it is extra work and usually takes more time than allotted by a removalist. Consequently, a service provider considers the extra work in your quote. However, if you leave your bin in the driveway, it is easily accessible to rubbish removalists, resulting in cheaper services.
Flatten your Rubbish
The amount of rubbish you produce also determines how much you pay for disposal services. The reason is that more waste means more bins; hence, a higher quote. If you do not dispose of your trash correctly, you might end up needing more than one skip bin, even if you generate less waste. Since rubbish removal companies consider the waste volume when giving a quote, you need to use a skip bin economically. For example, rubbish will take less space in a trashcan if you flatten or compress it, making collection services cheaper. If you want to dispose of cardboard, cans or plastic packaging, flatten the waste before tossing it in a garbage bin.
Place Rubbish in One Location
Whether you are renovating, landscaping or building an outdoor feature like a swimming pool, excess rubbish is collected. If a contractor does not offer rubbish collection services, you might need to hire one. That said, a service provider's quote depends on how well you group the trash. In case you leave the rubbish piled up in different locations, a removalist has to gather and collect it. Besides, they might not know what should be collected or left behind. As a result, you will need to double-check that the work is done, which only wastes time for all parties. However, if you dispose of rubbish in one location, it is easier to collect, making collection services cheaper.
