Skip bins are great for tossing out unwanted rubbish but knowing how to strategically load your skip bin is even greater! It’s important to really get the most out of your skip bin so it’s not only cost-effective but fits all the rubbish you need to get rid of. We want you to have more space in your skip bin to make the most out of it!
Here are some tips on how to strategically load your skip bin:

Select the correct size bin

We have a range of skip bins here at Pro Skips Australia. Our bins range from 2 cubic metres all the way to 12 cubic metres! It’s important to assess the amount of rubbish you need to dispose of and choose the correct size skip bin for your needs.

Place the bin on your property

The best place for the skip bin to be placed is actually on your property! We’ve noticed that when the skip bin is sometimes placed on the street, other people start throwing their rubbish into it leaving you with less space in your bin!

Place rubbish in the bin strategically

Throwing rubbish of any size and in whatever direction into the skip bin is really going to minimise the space you have in the skip. You can make the most out of the space in your skip bin by starting off with laying any flat objects you want to dispose of at the bottom of the bin. These would be items like timber, plywood and metal. After that, you would begin to get rid of the larger and bulkier items like furniture. Once all the bulky rubbish is in, you can begin throwing away any lightweight items. This includes garden waste and paper.

Distribute waste evenly

It’s important to distribute the waste evenly in the skip bin. You shouldn’t be putting all your bulky items to one side and all your flat items the other.

Reduce gaps between rubbish

Between the bulkier items, it’s good to fill the gaps with smaller items that you’re disposing. The tighter your rubbish is packer together, the better. All gaps and air pockets should try to be filled as best as possible. Play a game of tetris with your rubbish!

Don’t fill over the rim

We only have one rule at Pro Skips Australia – don’t fill over the rim of the bin! This is important for the safety of all involved in the rubbish removal process. It’s a risk that we’re not willing to take!
