TOP MISTAKES HOMEOWNERS MAKE WHEN HIRING A SKIP BIN IN BRISBANE

 

Nothing beats the convenience of a skip bin. You can safely and responsibly get rid of most materials in your home, garden and garage and have someone else deal with transporting it away and recycling it. To get the most value out of your Brisbane skip bin, avoid making the following mistakes.

  • NOT CHECKING THE SPACE AVAILABLE

Skip bins come in many shapes and sizes, and the worst mistake you can make is getting one too big or small for your property. The placement of your bin is also important as if it’s on your driveway or grass it could cause lasting damage unless you place protective planks underneath. It’s illegal to have your skip bin block people from walking around it, and you might need a skip bin permit depending on where you’re located and if your skip infringes on a public street or property.

  • PUTTING EVERYTHING IN IT

Most materials can be disposed of in your skip bin, such as electronic waste, concrete and steel. However old car tyres, materials you suspect contain asbestos and hazardous chemicals like paint and oils are prohibited. It always helps to ask your skip hire company what they will and won’t accept so that you can make alternative arrangements if necessary.

  • NOT LOADING YOUR SKIP BIN PROPERLY

The way you load your skip bin can make it unsafe and lead to accidents. It’s recommended that you place the largest, heaviest items at the bottom and lighter objects on top.
