Hiring a skip bin is definitely one of the easiest and most cost-efficient ways to get rid of rubbish. Simply book a skip, have it delivered to your location and fill – it couldn’t be simpler. While this process is fairly straightforward, you should be mindful of how you go about loading the skip – you’ll want to ensure that you load your rubbish efficiently and effectively into a skip bin.
At 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins, we understand the problems associated with loading standard skip bins, and as a result, we have designed our skip bins to be unique. Unlike the standard skip bins you will come across that are offered by other service providers, our skips feature a unique hinged rear door that swings open. This means that you can easily carry your waste and walk into the skip. You can also choose to cart in your items into the skip using a trolley or a wheelbarrow. This way, you will never hurt yourself trying to lift heavy items into the skip. But perhaps best of all, you can walk right into the bin and arrange your waste so as to maximise space.
Loading waste into a skip bin can be an easy process. As the owner of 4 Waste skip bins, I will offer you three top tips for loading your skip like a pro. These tips come from a professional expert – so listen up!
1. Place your rubbish close to where the skip bin will be positioned
It’s a good idea to place your rubbish close to where the skip will be positioned. This will help you in loading items into the skip bin with ease. Moreover, by piling up your rubbish, you can also estimate how much you have, enabling you to decide whether you need a 6m³ or 8m³ skip bin. Also, make sure that the location you choose for your skip bin is easily accessible from the road. Customers often ask us to place skips on the road or footpath however; I suggest that you place them on your property if possible. This way, you will avoid others disposing their rubbish into your skip bin, and also the need for a council permit.
2. Placing items in the skip
I’ve seem many customers simply throwing items into skips. This uses up a lot of space and also creates air pockets. Given that we charge you on the amount of rubbish that you fill into the skip, it’s a smart move to pack your rubbish tightly into the skip. All flat items (table tops, plywood, etc.) should be loaded first, followed by bulky and heavy items. If you can break or crush items, do so to save on space. Make sure you leave as little airspace as possible as we charge you only for the amount of waste you fill. We accept household waste and green waste in our skip bins. If you have heavy waste materials such as bricks, concrete, timber or other such items, talk to us and we will arrange for a heavy-duty skip bin for you.
3. How much waste to put into a skip
4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins are available in two sizes of 6m³and 8m³ capacities. All our skip bins include markers to indicate fill levels. You should never load the skip bin above the top marker level. We do not accept skips that have been overfilled due to Australian rules on occupational health and safety. We need to cover a skip with mesh before transporting it away from your location, so all waste must be within the skip’s walls.
Loading waste items into a skip bin can be easy, provided that you follow some basic tips. Always pile your rubbish close to where the skip will be positioned. If possible, ensure that the skip can be placed on your property, not on the road or footpath. When you pack items into the skip, place flat items first, followed by heavier and bulkier items. Crush items before placing them into the skip to save on airspace. Finally, always make sure that you do not overload a skip bin. All waste needs to be within the walls of the skip.
