Skip hire services with a focus on waste reduction

PASSIONATE about recycling, ACT Skip Hire, the longest-running skip bin hire business in Canberra, has a strong focus on waste reduction, say co-owners Tony Barron and Robyn Bombell-Barron. 

Caring about the three “Rs” – reduce, reuse and recycle – is par for the course for Tony and Robyn.

“We’re different from other skip bin companies because our focus is on recycling and doing it properly,” Tony says.

“We’re a professional, friendly and experienced family business, and want to provide the best possible service to our customers, with trained staff that can advise the best type of skip for the job.”

ACT Skip Hire offers open-top skips in sizes from 2-10 cubic metres, making life easy for anyone who’s spring cleaning, sorting out the garden, moving, clearing a house or renovating. It’s also a reliable company for tradespeople to deal with, they say.

“With a skip there’s no need to organise multiple tip runs, just load it up, we’ll collect it and everything will be tipped out and hand-sorted into bays at the depot for resource recovery, recycling and reuse,” Robyn says.

“It is intensive, hard and dirty work but we are having a direct, tangible impact on the level of waste going to landfill in our community.”

Award-winning recycler and service provider ACT Skip Hire recovers more than 60 per cent of all the waste that comes its way and makes use of ACT Recycling and the nearby Materials Recovery Facility (MRF or recycling sorting facility), Robyn says.

“Reusable metals go to SIMS Metal, glass goes to Sydney, tyres to Cootamundra,” she says.

“Some ceramics go to places locally that do therapeutic smashing or go in a masonry mix that’s passed on to ACT Recycling.”

Robyn says they have customers who use their business precisely for how they handle the waste from the skips.

“Using a skip is not the end of the line for rubbish – we really care what happens to it, and we take the time to sort it and recycle as much as we possibly can,” she says.
