Easy Skip Bin Hire Prep

Hiring skips bins is the easiest solution for ensuring that your large piles of garden and home waste are disposed of efficiently and quickly. When renovating your property it's important to consider how you are going to dispose of the different materials you will have lying around and think about where it will end up. The Australian Government has strict laws that determine how waste should be properly disposed of, and having a professional company do this for you can take much of the stress and worry out of the experience. This simple guide will help you to take into consideration some of the things you will need to know to make the whole process as simple and stress free as possible.

Size Matters 

Firstly you need to estimate how much rubbish you will be disposing of. Skip bins are often measured in yards or by the number of black bags they hold. Either way, whichever company you hire should be able to provide guidance on the most appropriate size and type of bin you'll need. This is important too, as different materials will require different bins depending on whether they are hazardous or not. Some of these materials are things such as paint and asbestos, which can be toxic and harmful to the environment and need to be disposed of in a different way to things like organic waste products.

Pre-Delivery Prep

Before delivery day have a think about how the skip will be delivered to your property. Depending on the size of it you may have to make arrangements for neighbours to move cars to ensure the delivery truck can place the skip in the most appropriate location. If it helps you can take some photographs and share them with the skip hire company, so that they have an idea as to what sized vehicle they will require. The truck, which carries the skip, might be required to drive onto your property, and may need to navigate around obstacles such as other cars and walls multiple times. Therefore it's important to consider whether there will be cars in the way during future collection times as well. You should also consider whether the skip would cause as hazards or block traffic and walkways, and be mindful that people may dump their own rubbish in it if it's not covered with a bin lid or located away from a public walkway.
