Do’s and Don’ts When Filling Up Your Skip Bin

Here are the DO’s:

Declare the types and amounts of waste. The types and amount of waste you dispose will determine the weight of your rubbish and the size of the bins you need.

Sort your wastes. Once you have identified the rubbish that you need to dispose of, separate it according to the classification types. It will make the disposal process much easier.

Maximise your skip bin load. Place heavier items at the bottom of your skip bin. Break down furniture before loading it and don’t leave gaping holes in between.

Keep an eye on your skip bin. Neighbours or passers-by might think it’s a free-for-all. People might throw their trash in it, so keep it within your property as much as possible.

Here are the DONT’s:

Don’t put any prohibited waste in your bin. Stuff like batteries or hazardous materials are not allowed in skip bins. If you think your rubbish contains asbestos, discuss this with your provider, so they can help you dispose of them accordingly.

Don’t over fill your skip bins. Do not fill your skip bin above the rim. This makes your bin unsafe for transport.  If your bin is overfilled, the company is likely to ask you to remove items so it can be transported safely.
