How to properly load a skip bin?
To load a skip bin properly, you must place items into the bin in a specific order. I recommend that you load the heaviest and largest items at the bottom of the skip first; this lowers the centre of mass of the skip bin and makes it safer to transport.
Next, place lighter and smaller items on top of the heavier items. Try to minimise air pockets’ formation by putting waste into them. This way, you’ll pack in the most waste into the skip bin.
What not to do when loading a skip bin?
When you load a skip bin, you should make sure that all your waste is confined fully within the bin. If your waste exceeds the bin dimensions, the skip company may charge you extra or simply leave excess waste behind. Also, you should load waste evenly into the bin. This makes it easier and safer to transport the bin.
Certain materials are prohibited from being put into skip bins. Some hire services prohibit heavy waste material, such as bricks, tiles, timber, soil, and concrete, so check before hiring.
Walk-in skip bins
Now that you know how to load a skip bin properly and what you can and can’t put in a skip, you can go ahead and load your skip.
But this presents another problem. Loading a regular skip bin can be difficult because of the skips tall walls; you have to lift rubbish above the walls to load it. This can be a problem, especially if you have large items such as furniture or renovation waste.
Thankfully though, with 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins, you won’t face this problem. We offer unique walk-in skip bins which feature a hinged door. This hinged door can be swung open, allowing you full access into the skip bin.

When it comes to loading a skip bin properly, there are certain things you should keep in mind. Make sure to load larger, heavier items at the bottom of the bin and smaller, lighter items on top.
