Concrete only mini skip bins are amongst the cheapest category for skip bins Adelaide. This is because concrete only is cheaper to process and recycle than general waste. Concrete only products / masonry (predominately concrete and bricks) are tipped out into a separate area to the general waste, and do not need to go through the same time consuming sorting and picking processes that other mixed waste streams have to go through. The masonry tipped out into the separate area from concrete only skip bins is crushed to produce a range of saleable road-base materials. These materials are direct replacements for materials traditionally quarried from the earth, making recycling concrete from ‘concrete only’ skip bins more environmentally friendly.
Skip bins can contain mixed waste, including concrete, but the price is more expensive as the mixed waste needs to go through sorting and picking processes to extract each waste stream before it can be recycled as efficiently as possible.
If you have a more than 1 cubic metre of concrete to dispose of, it is best to get a skip bin for just the concrete to make the skip bin price cheaper, and the process it has to go through more environmentally friendly.
