Quality Cleaning: 5 Expert Tips for Efficient Skip Bin Filling


Skip bin filling: there’s nothing to it, right? You just receive the bin, fill it and call the team to pick it up. It sounds that simple, but there are many things you can do to ensure you maximise your time and money when filling the unit. The last thing you want is to rent a unit that is too small, too big or doesn’t fit the items you want to put in it, as this would just be an absolute waste of a day!

With this in mind, here are five expert tips for efficient skip bin filling:

Choose the right size bin

The first thing to consider when choosing Central Coast skips is the size of the job. What, exactly, will you be putting in the bin? Are you moving home and throwing out general waste? In this case, you can go for a two to four metre option. Or, if you’re moving home and throwing out old beds or sofas, you should definitely go for a larger option like that of the 10 metre.

If you are renovating your home and have to throw out old fittings then you would likely need a larger bin, too. Garden clean ups all depend on how much earth you will remove so it is important to consider the size of the garden and what you will be disposing before you order!

Don’t just get a smaller one to save money

The last thing you want to do is rent a smaller bin just because it’s cheaper. Trust us, this doesn’t work, and often results in home and business owners spending much more on a second rental than if they had chosen the right size in the first place.

As a general rule, it’s good to go with one size up from the one you first imagined. This way, you can be sure you have all the space you need to fill the bin. What’s more, you can always cut many larger items down to size if they don’t quite fit the length i.e. timber planks!

Play skip bin tetris

It’s important to organise your rubbish before you start loading the bin, and why? Because if you start randomly throwing things in then you will likely leave a lot of air space unoccupied which could inhibit your ability to optimise your rental and may leave the job unfinished.

So, when you have all your rubbish at the ready, take a few minutes to organise it in a way that ensures that items can all be as close together as possible. This way, you won’t leave plenty of unused space that, in reality, you are paying to use!

Don’t just chuck any quality items

Sure, you might be incredibly tempted just to throw out that sofa because you’re moving home and have the bin ready to receive it. But, why throw out something that’s in good condition just because of convenience? Sure, it might be one more job to do, but donating or on-selling quality furniture and appliances is much better than simply throwing it in the tip. If you on-sell the goods you would otherwise chuck it’s good for your pocket and any form of recycling is better for the environment.

Don’t fill the bin above the rim

It is literally illegal to fill the bin above the rim and your experts won’t be able to collect it if it is like this. So, something you must remember is to ensure that you are properly packing the bin so that this unwanted hindrance doesn’t occur.

Apart from that you will be good to go and your waste will soon be disposed!
