For effective waste management in your Adelaide home, obtaining the services of mini skip bin hire should be your first option. If you haven’t tried hiring mini skips in Adelaide and would like to know as much as you can before getting one, here are important things that you need to remember:

What size of skip hire should I choose?

Adelaide homeowners can choose from 7 skip sizes, ranging between 2m3 for minor projects such as clearing out your garage and 9m3 for major home projects such as home renovations. Medium-sized bins such as 4m3, 5m, and 6m3 are popular since they can hold enough rubbish after major house and garden waste removal activities.

For the best value, make sure to measure the estimated volume of rubbish from your clean up project. Too small and you end up hiring another skip bin, and too big skip bins will be a total waste of money. Either way, you are spending money that you could have saved with proper planning.

How should I load skip bin hire in Adelaide?

Ideally, you can only fill a skip to the height of its sides. Most skips have clear lines that indicate what height it can be filled to. Never fill skip to the brim as this will create a mess. Finally, your skip hire company will not be transporting your hired skip if you overload it.

What are the items that cannot be loaded in rubbish bin hire?

In general rubbish, skips are designed for general waste types only. This means that no hazardous materials or chemicals can be loaded in skips. The skip bin company will provide you with a list of prohibited items to avoid problems during the loading of rubbish.

The top items that are not to be loaded in skips are:
