BIGbin is a convenient and handy waste disposal service compared to your standard bin collection/skip hire service. The traditional bin collection service is inconvenient and outdated for many households.
A lot of people do not accumulate enough domestic waste to pay for an annual waste collection service; people are also tied down to specific collection days and have to enter a contract with their service provider.
BIGbin allows you to dispose of your rubbish whenever you need to, with no annual or start-up fee!
From a recent study we established that average waste collection costs in Ireland are €298.35.
This is very expensive and in some places across Ireland the waste costs are a lot higher than the average amount!
A lot of people are paying the full price for their waste collection service and are only putting out half empty bins!
People may have had to resort to illegal dumping or burning their waste in the past because they could not afford to pay an annual fee. This is where BIGbin steps in!
We offer customers a hassle free method of waste disposal.
Our BIGbin units are simple to use and cheaper than your annual waste collection as we charge €6 for 2 of your own black bags of rubbish.
All you have to do is find you nearest BIGbin unit, bring your 2 bags of rubbish, purchase your ticket in the petrol station and key in the code of the ticket into the BIGbin unit. It’s that easy!!
Our BIGbin units are an environmentally friendly method of waste disposal as we recycle a large portion of the waste that we recover from our compactors.
Along with being environmentally friendly, here at BIGbin we are extremely passionate about helping our customer’s dispose of their waste in a cost effective way.
