What Can I Put in My Skip?
More and more Australians are using skip bins to dispose of their household waste that comes from renovations, building and other home projects. However, we’ve found that many people simply don’t know what they can and cannot put into their bins. Most people simply think that they can throw all types of waste into their skip bins and then the company will then simply take it off their hands.
However, if you are hiring skip bins in Richmond or other parts of Australia, there are some things you should consider first:
- By law, there are certain kinds of waste that you are not allowed to put in your skip
- By separating your waste properly, you could actually save yourself money
These are some of the most common questions that we get from our clients:
What is not allowed to go into my skip?
While laws on the waste allowed to go into a skip vary for different councils, the general laws that apply in most states forbid the following from being put into a skip bin:
- Human or animal excrement: human and animal waste is toxic in a landfill and hazardous for our staff that are dealing with and sorting the waste on a daily basis
- Hazardous liquids: Even if they are in new, completely sealed container – hazardous liquids like paint, poisons and chemicals are prohibited
- Do not but batteries or asbestos in your skip
- Tyres: Your vehicle tyres are incredibly hard to process and it is safer and more environmentally friendly to take them to legitimate tyre recycling companies
What about my household electrical goods?
One of the most common questions we get at Jim’s Skip Bins is whether household appliances like fridges, washing machines, microwaves and pretty much everything else can be put into a skip. Well, you can indeed put these in your skip as long as fridges and freezers are properly de-gassed and the lids and doors are removed from the appliances.
However, we don’t advise that you use your skip for these household appliances as they take up a lot of room in your skip and it is a more environmentally friendly option to take your appliances to a professional recycler.
So, what can go in my skip?
- General household waste like boxes, wood, clothes and cabinets
- Bricks, concrete and general waste
- Dirt, soil and sand
- Organic waste like grass, branches, woodchips, bark and wooden fencing
What are the penalties if prohibited items are found in my skip?
It’s really important that you avoid putting prohibited waste into your skip bin as there are repercussions for those that don’t follow the law:
- The load will be returned to your home and you will have to sort through it yourself and remove the prohibited items
- If there are hazardous materials in your skip, the chances are that we would have to hire professionals to help us deal with it. Hiring these kinds of professionals isn’t particularly cheap and you would have to cover the costs involved in transportation and hire
If you are unsure about what you can put in and what you need to keep out of your skip bin, then simply get in touch and we can give you professional advice.
