    Do Not Overload the Bin – Instead, What You Should Do Is:

    • See the rim limit and do not put waste exceeding this limit.
    • Heavy things should be placed at the bottom of your skip bin. You should disassemble or cut down the items before loading them. Even when filling your skip, don’t leave any gaps.
    • It’s possible that the neighbours or passers-by would throw their garbage, thinking it’s free to use. So, keep an eye and keep the bins close to your property.
    • If the trash is bulging out from the bin, it is unfit for transport and travel. Transporting bins that are heavily filled is also illegal and will put the bin truck driver in legal trouble.
    • Do not put any hazardous item in your bin.
    • Know the weight restrictions for your bin and try not to reach the limit.

    Clear Access and Bin Placement

    • A certain amount of clear access is needed for all skip bins. Remember the delivery truck as well as the skip bin when deciding where to put the bin.
    • Make sure that there are no tree branches or power lines in the way of the truck or the bin in the location you want.
    • Skip bins are very heavy. Place any planks under the bin to elevate it if you’re worried about it damaging your lawn, driveway, or pavers.
    • The delivery truck must be able to travel to and back out of your selected area without any difficulty. Be sure that the roads or driveways you ask the driver to use match the truck’s width and size.
    • If you have a council permit to put a skip bin on the driveway, you still cannot position it in a way that would block the traffic.
    • When putting your skip bin, be considerate of your neighbours and their space. Place the bin so it would not hinder your neighbour’s everyday activities.
    • Larger skip bins, in particular, can effectively obstruct utility lines and drains. Make sure your bin does not obstruct water pipes.
    • Do not move the bin on your own. You may endanger yourself and your property.

    Note: Please make sure to provide us with accurate details about the clear access or anything that can block the access for the driver.

    Some Do’s and Don’ts

    Do not put hazardous liquids, including oil, paint, poisons and pesticides, in the bin.

    Do not put batteries, tyres, asbestos, fuel, containers containing gas in the bin.

    If the bin is overflowing, the company will most likely ask you to remove products so that they can be transported appropriately.
