Five Things You Need to Know About Skip Bags

Skip bags, or bulka bags as they’re also known, offer a versatile option for waste removal.


Sydney City Rubbish now offer skip bags of various sizes, which are suitable for collecting all kinds of rubbish.


That could be commercial or office rubbish, construction and demolition waste, or domestic green waste.


We deliver and pick up these bags, and even pick up competitors’ bags at a 10% discount.


Before you order a skip bag, here are some things you need to know.


They’re Recyclable


Did you know that skip bags are recyclable?


Skip bags are made from polypropylene fabric, which is weaved together to make these extremely tough waste carriers.


As long as the bags are clean and looked after, they can be collected and taken to a recycling facility. Here, they’ll be broken down into the original raw materials.


From there, these materials can be used to make brand new skip bags.


Using recyclable waste removal options is just one way that we maintain our commitment to sustainability at Sydney City Rubbish.


They Can Hold Up to 1500kg


Whilst they may not look it, skip bags are extremely tough.


In fact, some of the skip bags we offer can hold up to 1500kg worth of waste. That could be wood waste, brick and rubble or scrap metal.


They Can Be Delivered in Compact Form


Our skip bags are conveniently delivered in packed form.


This means that the delivery process is extremely easy, and you can store them away for use in the near future.


That makes them much more convenient than a skip.


They’re Waterproof


Skip bags are made from a plastic material weave, and are therefore waterproof.


Because of that, you don’t need to worry about leaving them out in the elements. This makes them a very durable option.


You Can’t Use Them for Hazardous Waste


That means you shouldn’t put any of the following waste materials in skip bags:


  • Asbestos.
  • Fluorescent tubes.
  • Medical waste.
  • Gas bottles.
  • Fire extinguishers.
  • Toxic substances.
  • Oil and petrol.
  • Food waste.
