Skip bins can make your cleaning project or construction job far more efficient in terms of waste removal, but there are also things you can do to make acquiring the skip in itself more efficient.
Paying attention to the details of the job, including space availability, waste removal requirements, and the nature of the waste materials will help you make more intelligent decisions when requesting a skip bin from a reputable skip hire company. The following tips will also enhance the process and limit complications associated with skip bins and waste removal.
Sizing Your Skip Correctly
Skip companies supply a range of skip sizes, making them suitable for both small and large projects. However, ordering the wrong size can introduce some problems. You do not want the skip to overflow with waste, but you also don’t want there to be too much space leftover because that means you spent more money than necessary.
Sizing your skip correctly ensures that you do not take up too much space on the job site, that you don’t overpay for space you don’t need, and that you can eliminate waste in as little trips as possible.
Looking for Cost-Saving Opportunities
You can find cheap skip hire and keep prices low not only by getting the right size skip, but also by doing all of the following:
- Recycling when possible
- Strive to produce less waste
- Donate or reuse items
- Sort your waste
- Don’t keep your skip for too long
Sometimes your skip providers offer incentives for sorted waste, so you have opportunities to keep costs low.
Having a Space Prepared
It is important that you know where you are going to place your skip and that the space is cleared with enough space to accommodate the skip size. If you need a large skip hire, you will have to clear a larger space. Additionally, you should clear a space leading to the skip so that you can dispose of materials easily and safely throughout the job.
Being Aware of Hazardous Materials
There are a number of materials that you won’t be able to put in traditional skip bins, including asbestos, tyres, refrigerators, and fridges, among other things. You can avoid running into problems by being aware of these materials beforehand. This way, you can set them aside, and your skip providers will help you dispose of hazardous materials appropriately.
