If you are thinking about hiring a bin, it is important for you to know how to properly take care of a bin. This will limit some additional charges when you return the bin to the company you hired it from. Here are some simple tips and guidelines in order to make the most out of your skip bin.
Know What To Place
Before you start loading your skip bins with all the waste and rubbish you have, it is important to know what to put and not to put inside the bin. Here’s a list of things you can and cannot put:
- Household Waste such as food scraps, soiled nappies, sanitary items.

You can, however, fill your skip with the following materials:
- General waste: furniture, appliances, office waste

- Hardfill & rubble: concrete, tiles, pavers, bricks, sand, soil
You might have some materials that you think are not hazardous. However, give us a call here at Gladstone Blue Bins and we will walk you through the dos and don’ts putting things inside a skip bin.
Do not overfill the Bin
You should never overfill a skip bin for most of not all bins services will not accept it die to Australian rules on occupational health and safety. It is illegal to transport a container with its mesh almost bursting. Gladstone Blue Bins need to cover the bin with a mesh before transporting it away from your location, so it will be better for your wastes to not overflow.
Pack the Skip Bin Properly
A skip bin can handle large volumes of waste but that can depend on how you stack and pack the rubbish inside the bin. If you just randomly throw stuff inside the bin without properly stacking them into order, then it will leave you with a lot of unused space. Maximise the volume of each skip in by putting everything deliberately, carefully and in a detailed manner. Start with the big ones and on top of it all are the small ones.
