Proper waste management is very important in any home project, be it big or small. From big home projects such as renovations to small cleaning projects, it is essential to come up with a good system to get rid of waste. Back in the day, people would just pile up their waste in one corner of their property beside the street. Apart from being messy, this can be hazardous especially to those who are passing by. These days, more and more people are resorting to renting skip bins to take care of their waste and clutter. You may be wondering what skip bins are. Skip bins are big containers that you can rent and fill with trash. What’s good about renting a skip bin to manage your waste is that the skip hire company would be the one in charge of collecting and disposing your waste. So that basically eliminates the hassle of personally going to recycling center to dispose your stuff. It saves your time and effort. Sounds so easy right? The hardest part of the process would probably be choosing a skip bin to rent. Before making that final decision you must first consider these things to avoid unnecessary stress and inconvenience.
One of the most important things that you have to consider is the size of the skip bin that you will rent. When estimating the size, always give an extra allowance by getting a size bigger than your estimate. You might be wondering why you should do that. Yes, hiring a size bigger than what you need would definitely cost you a bit more, but think of it this way. If your waste doesn’t fit in your rented bin, you’ll end up hiring another one. So in the end, it will be more expensive and not to mention more stressful.
Bins are heavy duty containers, so once you’ve placed them in one spot it would definitely be hard to move them to another spot. This is why it is very important to plan ahead where you want to put it. If there’s no space in your property, you may have to file the necessary permits in your local city council to be able to place the bin on the side of the road.
You can’t just put anything and everything in your rented skip bin. There are things that are prohibited in the skip such as batteries, chemicals and other hazardous items. You have to discuss this with the skip hire company to avoid problems during the trash collection and disposal.
