How to load your skip efficiently

When you’re using a skip to dispose of your commercial, industrial or household waste, there are several ways you can make life easier for yourself and maximise the value you get from your hired unit. One of the best ways to optimise value is to ensure you choose a skip that’s large enough to hold all your waste at once. This will save you time and money as you will not have to hire multiple units. If you are unsure, we have a diverse range of skips available in different sizes and will be happy to advise you.

If possible, breaking items down into smaller pieces will make it simpler to load up the skip. Try to fill it evenly so that the waste can be packed down and there is no risk of anything toppling out. Never overload the skip, as this can be dangerous, particularly when the skip is being transported away after you’ve filled it. As a rule, don’t fill your skip past the lip.

Another way to make your task easier is to ensure you are filling the skip in a strategic way. If you have large items to dispose of, such as furniture, it will usually be more efficient to put them in first. This will give you a better idea about how much space you have left over for smaller items of waste. Awkwardly-shaped items should also be put in first because you can then fill in the gaps and spaces with smaller pieces of rubbish, enabling you to fit more in.
