Waste can come in many different forms. Identifying the type of waste you have for removal will make it easier for you to decide on the type and size of skip bin you may want to hire. It can also help you avoid being charged more than your original quoted price.
Most skip bin companies are licensed to collect all kinds of waste. However, certain types of waste are prohibited to be placed in skips. Or they may require a different form of disposal. The placement of some types of waste into the bin that has not been specified earlier can result in additional charges when the bin is collected. It is important that you correctly identify the type of waste you are throwing out so that you do not incur additional fees during collection.
Our simplified table below provides some basic guidelines on the classification of waste used by most skip bin hire companies.
|WASTE TYPE||WHAT YOU CAN PUT||WHAT YOU CANNOT PUT|
|General waste bins||This includes all types of household waste or light materials like clothing, toys, cardboard boxes, wood, furniture, white ware, plastics, carpets, curtains and so forth||Construction or building materials like soil, rocks, concrete, tiles.|
|Building/Construction/Renovation bins||Waste generated from home improvements, repairs and renovations. May include building waste like concrete, tiles, bricks and general waste||It is a good idea to specify whether your waste is light construction or heavy materials at the time of booking so you can hire the right size bin.|
|Dirt bins||Dirt can include dirt, sand and soil||No other waste can be put in.|
|Bricks and concrete bins||Only bricks and concrete||No other waste can be put in.|
