If you’ve come across
this page while searching Google for a company that offers Brisbane Southside skips, then you’re half way
there towards eradicating your waste problems. With the help of a skip, you
will get rid of all your rubbish easily and
While our Brisbane
Southside skips remove all your garden waste, household waste or commercial waste,
there are certain things that you must not do with our skips. So before your
skip arrives, let’s take a look at what you should avoid to ensure you have a
hassle free skip hire.
1. Overfill the skip
One of the most common
mistakes people make when they hire a Brisbane Southside skip is overfilling
the skip. Understand that transporting an overfilled skip is dangerous and difficult
as well. Moreover, certain rules and regulations
prohibit skip bin companies from transporting overfilled skips.
If you end up
overfilling a skip bin, your waste will not be
collected. Certain skip companies (including us) will simply leave your
waste behind while others will charge you extra for getting rid of excess
waste. Don’t overfill your skip and you won’t face these problems.
2. Fill prohibited waste
Another common mistake
that people make is filling skips with prohibited waste. Keep in mind that there
are certain waste types that can and cannot be loaded into our skips. For
instance, if you hire a garden skip, you can only fill
100% garden waste into it. Alternatively, if you hire a junk skip, you can fill mixed
waste or general waste into it.
You cannot fill
hazardous waste, chemical waste, construction waste, and heavy waste materials in our Brisbane Southside skips. If you’re looking to remove such waste
materials, you’ll need to find a different method for disposal.
3. Incorrectly load the skip
When you fill a skip,
you must make sure to load waste properly.
If you fail to do so, you will end up with lots of air pockets which could have
otherwise been filled with waste. Plus, you can also injure yourself if you fail
to load a skip in the proper manner.
To properly load a
skip, organise your rubbish by size and
start loading large and bulky items first. Fill air pockets and gaps with
smaller items and try to pack waste as tightly and efficiently as possible. This will also reduce
skip hire costs as we charge you for the amount you fill.
4. Fail to fill the skip within the hire period
Another common problem
that we face is customers failing to fill the skip within the hire period. We
make our money from the hiring of our skip bins, so each extra day it remains at
a property is business we are losing. Therefore, we charge a $50 penalty rate
for each extra day. You will find a similar penalty rate with most Brisbane
Southside skip companies.
Make sure to avoid this
by planning and start organising your
rubbish before the skip arrives. This will give you enough time to fill waste
within the hire period.
When you hire Brisbane
Southside skips, there are certain things that you must not do. Make sure never
to overfill a skip and never fill prohibited waste into a skip. Do not load a
skip incorrectly and do not fail to fill the skip within the hire period.
