So that you don’t make these common mistakes when hiring a skip bin, we have outlined some important aspects. 

  • Hiring a wrong sized bin

The key to choosing the right sized skip bin is to calculate the amount of waste that you expect to dispose of.

Sometimes, it can be tricky to know exactly how much waste you will produce, so we recommend choosing a larger skip bin size that will anticipate extra waste disposal requirements. This way, you won’t have to pay unnecessary extra bin rental fees.

You can call the skip bin hire business to discuss your requirements, and they will provide you with more information. It’s important that you choose the right bin to save on your cost of waste disposal services and use the skip bin for longer periods of time.

  • Hiring the wrong bin type

The various skip bins do not handle all types of waste. Skip bins come in various sizes to accommodate different waste and have different levels of sturdiness. They are cost-effective options for rubbish removal because they can handle waste for households, backyards and commercial businesses. Each of these containers specialises in catching specific waste types, which means no extra money is spent. To ensure your needs are matched, request quotes before hiring a bin.

  • Exceeding the weight limit of the bin

Skip bins accommodate a wide range of waste materials, but you need to keep the weight below the rim line. Rim lines ensure that the weight of the contents does not cause damage to the property or injure someone. The limits are there to ensure safe and hassle-free waste disposal. Also, if you overload the skip bin, there may be an extra cost.

  • Putting a skip bin in the wrong place

When ordering a skip bin, state clearly where you want to put it so that it’s easier for you when the delivery and pickup takes place. Take into account where your rubbish is and how easy it will be to load the bin in the location you choose for it.
