Skip Bin Hire Tips

Posted on

Do you need a skip bin to take care of residential, commercial, or industrial waste? Below is an extract discussing the considerations you should make when hiring a skip bin. 

Your first task should be to find a reputable skip bin hiring company. Some of your concerns should include: 

You need to determine the volume of waste that you need to dispose of. It ensures that you choose an appropriate skip bin. Most skip bin rental companies have a wide range of skip bins to suit your varying needs. If you cannot decide the size of the skip, ask the hiring company to send an expert to help you determine an appropriate skip bin.

What will you be throwing out? Most companies do not have a problem disposing of general waste such as household waste, cardboards, and papers. However, you must inform them if you intend to dispose of hazardous materials such as asbestos, lead, or medical waste. It ensures that they dispose of this waste at an appropriate facility. In some cases, the company will ask you to sort out your waste. For example, they could ask you to place recyclables at the bottom of the bin and organic waste at the top. 

As a rule, you should mark out an appropriate area to place the skip bin. The area should be accessible to the crane truck that will deliver the skip bin. Look out for low-lying branches and electrical cables that could hinder the crane truck from lowering or hoisting the skip bin. 

Depending on your local council laws, you could need a permit to place a skip bin along a street. If this is the case, you could opt for a mobile skip bin that can be placed inside your premises.
