What Are You Using It For?

The type of skip bin that you rent will be determined by the type of waste that you need to get rid of. For example, there is a difference in bins if you have construction debris as opposed to green waste like grass and branches. You will need to specify whether you will need a light or heavy-duty bin when making your reservation. Keep in mind the weight of your refuse, as it will make a huge difference in the size and type of skip that you will need. Each size of skip has a maximum weight limit on it that you should be familiar with.

What Size Will You Need?

This can be tough to try to estimate unless you consider a few factors. Although bins come as small as 2m3, you may need something much bigger depending on your project. Your dealer is the expert and they will help you to estimate what you will need depending on your project. You don’t want to go too small and have to pay for a dump and return.

How Long Will You Need It?

On average, most bins are rented for 2-3 days. There are weekly and monthly rates available for larger projects as well. Know your own project plan so that you can let your bin provider know how to schedule your drop-off and pick-up in the most efficient way.

Know About Bin Safety

Using a bin in itself is not a risky endeavor, but there are certain safety aspects that you should be aware of. Always practice safe working habits, especially when dealing with rough waste. Wear safety glasses and gloves while loading your bin. It is fine to use your bins for green waste, construction waste, old furniture, electronics, toys or books. Keep in mind that most companies will not allow you to use your bin to dispose of paint, chemicals, asbestos or old car batteries.

Will You Need A Permit?

As long as your bin is placed on private property, and is not interfering with common areas or walkways, you should not need a permit. It is always a good idea to contact your city council if you have any concerns about bin placement. Bins cannot be placed on the road in any areas or block pedestrian traffic.
