Getting Your Money's Worth: How to Properly Load a Skip Bin

by Encarnacion Guerrero

Many aspects of loading a skip bin might seem a bit obvious. Having said that, you want to make sure that you get your money's worth when it comes to skip bins hire. Properly loading a skip bin is almost like a game of Tetris, and you need to stack everything into place to ensure that every part of the available space is filled. Even if you don't think you have enough junk to fill the bin, it's better to properly load the bin so that the weight is evenly distributed. This makes it less likely that there will be any loading problems when the bin is removed. So what's the right way to load a skip bin?

First Thing's First

Old furniture should be placed at the bottom of the bin. Disassemble the furniture as much as possible, particularly when it comes to cabinets, cupboards and wardrobes. Remove the doors and retain them to be added later. Fill the hollows with other items of rubbish. Old tables and chairs might not disassemble quite so easily, meaning you will need to break these apart with a crowbar or hammer. Please wear eye protection if you need to do this.

Loose Material

If you need the skip bin to remove waste from a renovation or building project, you will probably have a lot of loose material. This might be pieces of brick, masonry, wood, and even broken glass. These items should be tipped in at this stage to allow them to settle fairly low down in the bin. This ensures that they are not scooped out of the bin by a sudden gust of wind.

General Rubbish

Once the base of the bin has been filled, you can then load other items on top of the other, heavier items. Try to leave lighter items for (almost) last. If you are disposing of household rubbish into the bin at this stage, please keep it in a sealed plastic rubbish bag. This means that any larger recyclable items in the bin can easily be sorted.

At the Top

Lighter items should be left for the top of the bin, although of course you should not fill the bin beyond the rim. Remember those doors that you removed from your old cabinets, cupboards and wardrobes? Place these on the top of the bin when you've finished loading it. Their weight will form a type of lid, securing the lighter items underneath.

Haphazardly chucking items into the bin in any old order can mean that the bin will not be utilised to its full capacity. It's in your best interests to load the bin properly so that you can be sure you will be able to get your money's worth from the hire.
