How to fill a skip correctly.

Filling a skip can seem daunting, but it can be a quick and easy process with the right approach.

Here are some tips to help you fill a skip efficiently and effectively:

  • Plan ahead:

Before you start filling your skip, take a moment to think about what you need to get rid of and how much space it will take up. This will help you determine what size skip you need and how much it will cost.

  • Sort your waste:

It’s important to sort your waste before you start filling your skip. This will make it easier to dispose of your waste correctly and avoid additional charges. First, separate your rubbish into wood, metal, plastics, and general waste categories.

  • Pack it in:

Once you start filling your skip, it’s essential to pack it in as tightly as possible. This will help you make the most of the available space and ensure you don’t need to hire an additional skip. Start by placing large items at the bottom and packing smaller items around them.

  • Be mindful of weight:

Skip-hire companies often have weight limits. So it’s essential to be mindful of how much weight you are putting in your skip. Also, avoid filling your skip with heavy items such as soil or concrete. This can quickly add up and lead to additional charges. However, we take soil and concrete but let the office know beforehand.

  • Choose a reputable skip-hire company:

Do your research before choosing a skip hire company. For instance, pick a reputable, licensed, fully insured company. This will ensure that your waste is disposed of correctly and legally.

By following these tips, you can make filling a skip a quick and easy process. Remember to plan, sort your waste, and pack it in tightly. Also, be mindful of weight and choose a reputable skip-hire company. We hope you found this how to fill a skip correctly blog useful and helpful.
