The skip hire services we provide the Mitcham area can be seen as a means of keeping construction sites safe; trip hazards are kept clear, and waste can be carefully managed. But the skips themselves still need to be used in a responsible manner. So here, we’ve looked to outline a few tips to do just that. More interested in getting a skip hire quote ASAP?

Prepare a Space – Before the skip arrives, find a location that is both large enough and on flat and stable ground. The area shouldn’t be surrounded by any obstructions that could be a risk when loading or unloading the skip. It should also be in an area that, if you live in a fairly dark and unlit corner of Mitcham, folk are less likely to bump into!
Avoid Overfilling – One of the most essential tips that all skip hire companies will be quick to extol, is avoiding overfilling. Remember, the skip need to be driven safely to our processing facilities, so we won’t be able to accept a skip that is likely to spill its contents. Mitcham clients who still have waste to get rid of need not fret, as we can empty it and leave you with a skip to continue using, should you require one.
Load Carefully – Skip hire companies often hear stories of those who have injured themselves while recklessly loading their vessels. After all, the convenience of having a massive receptacle can make you want to fling all sorts of waste in without too much further thought! But heavy waste, or waste with sharp corners and edges, should be carefully placed in to avoid such an eventuality.
Accommodate Hazardous Waste – While skip hire is a remarkably versatile means of ridding yourself of all sorts of rubbish, from unwanted construction materials to green waste, not everything can be placed inside them. We urge Mitcham clients to familiarise themselves with the list of banned waste types, and make accommodations in any project which might see them accumulated, or needing disposed of.
