Read on below to find out more!
DO’s to keep in mind when filling up your skip bin:
DO choose and separate your waste by categories:
The types and amount of waste you are disposing of will determine the weight of your rubbish, the size of the skip bin you need and therefore the price you pay. Here at National Skip Bins we have a range of four different types of waste category to suit all of your waste disposal needs:
General waste – the perfect choice for the majority of your generic waste, including a range of light domestic waste and office waste, white goods or even garden waste.
Mixed Heavy waste – to dispose of a large amount of bulky or heavy items such as a variety of builders waste, white goods and other furniture as well as timber, bricks, tiles, concrete, sand and types of metal such as steel.
Green waste – suitable for the majority of types of garden waste including grass clippings, leaves, tree trimmings and small branches, weeds and tree bark as well as trunks up to a maximum diameter of 300mm.
Rubble and Soil – Specifically suitable for only rubble and soil waste such as bricks, tiles, pavers, sand or limestone etc.
DO maximise your skip bin load.
Make the most of your skip bin by placing heavier items at the bottom of your skip. Pack your bin carefully, don’t leave gaping holes in between and break down larger items such as furniture first.
DO watch out for sneaky skippers
Keep an eye on your skip bin to ensure that neighbours or other passers-by aren’t sneakily adding things into your skip bin – at your cost!
DONT’s: what NOT to do
DON’T put any prohibited waste in your bin.
Anything that is considered hazardous or toxic is not allowed to be put in any of our skip bins. This includes asbestos, tyres or other car parts, batteries, chemicals or drums, paint, oils or liquids, gas/aerosol canisters or explosive material, food stuff, medical waste, herbicides/pesticides or dead animals.
DON’T over fill your skip bins.
Filling your skip bin above the rim makes it unsafe for transport. Any overloaded skip bins will not be collected and we may have to remove the excess items (at your cost) in order to transport the skip bin safely.
