Skip bin rentals are the most convenient way to manage household, construction and even industrial waste. Most people understand the basics of contacting a rental company and asking them to provide a bin. Unfortunately, an equally large number of people run into problems when it comes to managing waste after they get the skip bins. Most of the problems arise because people do not understand which waste types are allowed in the bins and the special waste types that need to be managed in specific bins. Here are three guidelines you will find very useful in the proper management of skip bin waste.
Types of Waste Not Allowed in Regular Bins
First, you need to understand the waste types which are allowed in regular bins. Regular skip bins prohibit you from putting in wastes such as food waste, nappies and diapers, liquid waste such as paint and chemical thinners, tyres and all types of e-waste. Additionally, hazardous waste types such as asbestos and other prohibited heavy metals are not allowed in skip bins. Every company will have a list of items that they do not allow into their bins. It is advisable to study the list and keep everything that does not fall into these categories out of the bins.
General Wastes Allowed in the Bins
There are certain types of general household wastes that are allowed in skip bins. These wastes include timber, old bits of furniture, carton boxes, clothes, toys, old carpets and certain types of electronics. Generally, white goods are also allowed into skip bins. Note that there are certain types of general waste that are not allowed inside the skip bins, despite the fact that they fall under general waste. These include bricks, concrete and soil. A specific removal company should be tasked with helping remove these specific types of waste.
Using Green Waste Bins
There are specific skip bins designed for use in the disposal of green waste. Green waste types include bark, wood chips, grass, weeds, foliage and other organic materials. However, there are also certain types of organic wastes that are not allowed in the bins including sand, soil and other types of dirt.
It is advisable to talk to the residential skip bin hire company and hear everything they have to say about the use and management of waste in their bins. When you make assumptions about the wastes allowed in a bin, you create conflict between yourself and the waste management company, which complicates the waste management process.
