General Tips and Useful Information for Skip Bin Hire in Northcote
Hiring a skip for you household waste when you are doing a renovation or rebuild is an excellent way to get rid of it in a quick, effective way. At Jim’s Skip Bins, we offer skip bin hire in Northcote for homeowners that need to store their waste during a project and don’t want the hassle of having to dispose of it themselves.
Here are a few general tips and some information that you need when hiring skip bins in Northcote.
Choosing the right size
When you are hiring a skip bin for your project’s waste, it’s absolutely essential that you hire the right size skip. We offer a wide range of skips from 2 cubic metres all the way up to 31 cubic metres, and so there is a large choice range. The smaller skip sizes are perfect for household projects like clear outs and garden waste; the medium sizes are better suited to bigger renovation jobs, and building projects and our largest skips are generally best for commercial and large-scale construction purposes.
It’s important that you talk to one of our experts about the best-sized skip for your project to ensure that you don’t waste money on hiring an extra one if yours is too small, or overpay for a large skip that you don’t completely fill with your waste.
Types of waste that you can put in your bin
There are rules and regulation about what kind of waste that you can put into your skip bin, and we can’t accept bins that are found to have prohibited waste in them.
The most common prohibited items of waste that you cannot place in your skip bin includes:
- Electrical items like TVs
- Hazardous liquids like paint
- Human and animal waste
- Gas bottles
- Fluorescent light bulbs
The common household waste that you can put into your skip bins includes:
- General domestic waste
- Soil, clay and rubber
- Metal and wood
- Organic garden waste
- Paper and cardboard
How to keep the costs down when hiring a skip
The price of skip bins is directly related to how big they are: the larger the skip, the more expensive it’s going to be. One of the most common mistakes that we see people make is that they dispose of bulky items incorrectly that take up huge amounts of space in their skip. If you have furniture such as sofas, mattresses and beds, then it’s always a good idea to check if there is a charity shop in Northcote that will accept them, as this will leave a lot more space in your skip for your other waste materials and save you money at the end of the day.
Permits may be required when hiring a skip
In some cases, you may need a permit for your skip. This is only required when your skip bin doesn’t fit into your property, or we cannot access your property for some reason. In this case, your skip will be placed on the sidewalk and you’ll need to get a permit from the local Northcote council.
These are just some of the things to consider when you’re looking for skip bins in Northcote. Get in touch with us and our skip bin experts can give you more tips and advice to ensure your skip bin experience is safe, effective and within your budget.
