Whether you’re renovating a room in your home or doing spring cleaning, hiring a skip bin to throw everything away in can be useful. However, it is important to know what can and cannot be put into a skip. The items you can put into a skip to be taken to a landfill include:
- Building materials
- Non-electrical fittings
- Garden waste like clippings or branches
Break Down Waste
Before you put something in a skip, try to break it down as much as possible. Not only will it save space in the skip, but it will be easier to pick up and toss into it. Whether it is a piece of furniture, an old cabinet, or cardboard boxes, break them down and then throw them away.
Bag Loose Garbage
If you are throwing regular rubbish into the skip, make sure to bag it first. Otherwise, it can blow away while waiting to be picked up or during the trip to the landfill. Also, try to recycle what you can before tossing it away. A local skip hire company in Weymouth will often go through the skip to find recyclables if you miss something.
Try to put the heavier, bulkier items on the bottom of the skip, and then put the bagged rubbish on top. It is a more efficient way of loading the skip and help prevent it from being overloaded. The skip hire company should give you a list of what can and cannot go into a skip.
