How to pack a skip bin

Packing a skip bin isn’t as simple as throwing stuff into it; a little planning goes a long way. A good tip is to lay larger, flat items on the base of the skip bin before you put anything else in it. This means things like doors and planks should go in first.

This leaves the maximum space for the rest of your waste. Don’t prop things – stack them neatly and put like with like – that way, you won’t have any pockets of space.

Stacking neatly also reduces the risk of waste escaping and ending up where it’s not wanted. Australia is working hard to improve our environment, and the little things add up.
