Check with your bin hire operator or visit our section on ‘Types of Waste‘ to determine what you can and cannot put in a skip bin.
Buildings built before the 1980s may contain asbestos in some form. Asbestos were used in roof shingles, floor and ceiling tiles, siding, insulation, pipe cement and joints. Some buildings post 1980s may also contain asbestos.
If you are not sure if you have asbestos, please consult your bin hire company when making a booking.
Asbestos cannot be left exposed in a skip bin. It needs to be wrapped in 200 micron polythene heavy-duty plastic (black or orange). Not all skip bin hire companies will provide this as part of their service.
If you suspect you have asbestos in your waste, consider using a skip bin hire specialist with the right expertise like Tangoskips.
Insulation is usually treated like asbestos.
Skip bins of different sizes and uses have different weight capacities.
It is important that you specify the type of bin you want to hire not just the size as there may different weight limits for different purposes.
Checking with the bin hire company not only confirms the waste you can put into the skip but it will also help you avoid having to pay additional fees for overloading the skip bin.
The weight limits for different types of waste can usually be found in the hire terms and conditions. Always read this before you confirm the order.
You want to be careful not to fill it too high. Debris can be easily lifted by the wind and can litter the streets or become a health and safety hazard for others.
Using a tarp to cover your bin can prevent the wind from lifting debris and other lightweight waste.
If you cannot put the bin in your property, you may have to leave it outside on the street or footpath.
Survey the area where you intend to leave the bin before deciding on the size of bin you want to hire. There is no point hiring a large bin if you cannot fit it onto the street or lane where you home or business is.
When using public spaces, always check with your local council to find out if you need a permit to place the skip.
