Getting the Best Value from Your Skip Bins

Hiring skip bins is an effective way to clear out large items at once. For domestic uses, it is unlikely you will regularly need to hire a bin. So if you are planning a special clean-out project, make sure your choice of skip bin is appropriate and cost-effective.

It is not at all unlikely to end up with excess charges because of commonly overlooked factors. Here’s how you can avoid these mistakes and get the best value from your skip bins:

Identify what you can and cannot put in the bin.

There are certain materials that are legally allowed in the bin. According to the law, human or animal waste, hazardous waste and liquids, vehicle tyres, oil, paint, and asbestos are among these materials. Disposal of inappropriate wastes using the skip bin will result in excess charges and unnecessary trouble for you and your provider. If you are unsure of the regulations, don’t hesitate to ask.

Know about weight and capacity limits

General and green wastes have weight limits imposed on them, just as bins can only contain a prescribed amount of waste. Overfilling the bins or exceeding the weight limit can lead to additional costs.

Know your recycling options.

Some types of waste can be recycled and will not have to end up in a landfill. Proper segregation of wastes may save you money, and will benefit the environment. This can mean you will have to hire more than one bin, which will be more cost-effective in the long run.

Do not hesitate to hire more than one bin if necessary.

More often, hiring two or more smaller bins, rather than one big bin to hold everything, will give you the best value. Different waste types have different charges. For example, concrete disposal is cheaper than general waste. Since you pay according to the weight of the waste, it may be cheaper to hire an additional bin for other waste types.
