How To and How Not To Fill a Skip Bin

If you’ve decided to hire a skip bin in Brisbane for your rubbish disposal, you’ve certainly made a great decision. With a skip bin, you’ll make rubbish disposal easier, more efficient and more affordable.

But, if you’ve never hired a skip bin before, then you probably don’t know the right way to fill it with your waste – is there is a right and wrong way! You shouldn’t simply just dump your waste into it as it will be a wasteful process.

So who do you correctly fill a skip bin? Well, today I will tell you. So, continue reading this post to find out what you should and shouldn’t do when you hire a skip bin in Brisbane. And remember, I own 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins in Brisbane, so I know what I’m talking about!

How to fill a skip bin

When it comes to filling a skip bin, you must make sure that you fill it with the proper rubbish type. You have to understand that certain types of rubbish are not accepted in skip bins. For instance, you can fill 100% garden waste into garden skips and mixed waste or household waste in junk skips. However, you cannot fill heavy rubbish materials or chemicals in all skip bins. To ensure that you fill the right rubbish, sort out your rubbish before you hire a skip bin in Brisbane.

Also, you should always look to maximise the load of the skip bin you hire. This can be achieved by packing waste efficiently into a skip. Make sure to break down heavy and bulky items and place them at the bottom of the skip. Keep placing smaller items into the gaps and pack things tightly.

If you hire a skip bin from us at 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins, this will become much simpler. Our skip bins offer walk-in access into the skip so you can ensure that you pack rubbish efficiently.

While you must maximise your skip load, make sure that you are aware of load restrictions. If you exceed load restrictions, your rubbish won’t be collected, or you may be charged extra.

How not to fill a skip bin

There are several things you shouldn’t do when filling a skip bin. First of all, make sure not to fill a skip with prohibited rubbish types. If you do this, your rubbish won’t be collected at all.

Also, make sure that you don’t mix different types of waste and fill it into a skip bin. While some skip providers, including us, will accept mixed waste in junk skips, others may not. Again, you may be charged extra for doing this, or your rubbish won’t be collected.

Finally, make sure never to overload a skip bin with rubbish. There are strict rules and regulations prohibiting overloading of skip bins. An overloaded skip is also unsafe for transportation. Ensure that your skip load is within the maximum load specifications.

Conclusion:

If you are looking to hire a skip bin in Brisbane, then you should be aware how to fill a skip properly. Make sure to fill a skip with the proper type of rubbish and sort your rubbish before hiring a skip. Try and maximise a load of your skip by packing it efficiently with rubbish. Never put prohibited rubbish into a skip, never mix different types of waste and make sure never to overload a skip.
