Doing Some Gardening This Spring? How To Avoid Mistakes With Your Skip Bin Hire

If you've got some big spring projects planned for around the yard this spring, don't forget to hire a skip bin. Hiring a skip bin can make those gardening projects much easier to accomplish, especially where the garden waste is concerned. Skip bins provide you with all the space you need to discard all of the garden debris you'll be cleaning up this spring. If you've decided to hire a skip bin, read the information provided below. You'll find some tips to help you avoid mistakes. 

Start With the Right Skip Bin

If you're going to hire a skip bin for your household project this spring, make sure you choose the right one. You might not realise this, but there are different types of skip bins to choose from. If you're going to limit your projects to landscaping efforts, you'll want to hire a general light waste skip bin. With this type of bin, you can discard most garden waste including twigs, grass and weeds. If you have soil, sand, rubbish, concrete and rubble to discard, you'll need to hire a mixed waste skip bin. If your project involves the disposal of white waste, such as household appliances, you'll need to talk to your skip bin provider about hiring a heavy-duty skip bin.   

Load the Heaviest Items First

If you've never hired a skip bin before, you might not know how to handle the loading. The best way to avoid problems is to sort your waste first. That way, you can load the heaviest items first. When you load the light waste first, you run the risk that your skip bin will become top-heavy. If that happens, your bin could topple over on you. To avoid that risk, you always want to place the heaviest items on the bottom of the bin. 

Never Climb in the Skip Bin

If your bin starts filling up too quickly, you might be tempted to climb inside and compress the waste. That's the worst thing you can do. You might think that you're making more room in the bin, but you're actually putting yourself at risk for a serious injury. First, you could fall and hurt yourself inside the bin. Second, you could step on a sharp object. Both of those situations could land you in hospital. Avoid the risk of personal injury. Use a pole or a heavy board to compress the waste.
