Avoid overfilling your skip

The great thing about skips is that you can hire one, fill it with a huge amount of rubbish and then call the hire company to come and remove it for you. This can save you a great deal of time and effort because you’ll only need to load items once, rather than having to fill a vehicle and then unload everything yourself when you reach the recycling facility.

In order to maximise the efficiency of your service, it is important to avoid overfilling. If you try to put too much into a skip and exceed either the maximum weight or the fill height, the company may refuse collection until you remove some of the items. This can leave you with the messy task of having to get in the skip to take items out again. It could also result in higher costs if you need to keep the skip for longer and have to hire another one to get rid of the excess rubbish.

In order to have the smoothest service, you need to ensure you hire a suitable skip from the beginning. You’ll need to get as accurate an estimate of the volume of rubbish you have as possible because both under and overestimating can cause problems and higher costs. It is wise to look carefully at the dimensions of each skip and the volume of waste it can hold. Pay particular attention to the height if you are planning on getting rid of tall, bulky items.
