If by any miracle you have managed to ignore or miss the Geelong and global movement against plastic consumption due to its lack of biodegradable and recyclable qualities then it is time to be aware of the footprint your waste creates.

Everything we consume then dispose of has to go somewhere. Skip bins don’t act as a magical portal that takes your rubbish out of sight and out of mind. The items you dispose of either end up in a landfill or a recycling plant.

This is why at GTown Skips we don’t want your rubbish awareness to begin and end with responsible disposal using your skip bin hire in Geelong. We want your rubbish consciousness to start with what you consume in the first place.

Restaurant owners, event managers, DIY projectors and contractors take a look at your materials and ask yourself ‘can this be reused, and if not reused can it be recycled?’. If the question is no to both, then it might be time to consider how you can switch to more reusable materials.

Less than 10% of plastic is recycled globally as of this year. And that is not to say that everyone’s waste management is that poor. Plastic can only be recycled so many times as it breaks down with each reuse, thus requiring new plastic to be added to increase the strength of the new product.

However responsibly plastic is disposed of in your skip bin hire, it will likely still end up in some sort of landfill. That’s why in every area possible, you should aim to switch your disposable plastic materials out with items you can immediately reuse multiple times.

One of the most useful, money saving, planet-loving replacements for plastic is glass. Glass can be infinitely recycled without losing any of its strength or quality. And before reaching the stage of recycling it is durable, reusable and unlike plastic, chemical free.

While glass bottles, glass jars and broken bottles can be recycled via your usual kerbside recycling bin some glass must be separated to be recycled properly. This is where your skip bin hire exists to help the environment and your carbon footprint.

Investing in skip bin hire in Geelong means that you are putting money towards responsible waste management. Mindlessly placing your recyclables in your kerbside bin can lead your recycling to be contaminated and thus rendering it unrecyclable and destined for landfill.
