How to Fill Your Concrete Skip Bin Correctly

If you’ve got a big clean-up task on your hands because you’ve just had to remove a concrete wall, it’s time you get a concrete skip bin to dispose of these bricks.
There is no limitation on these types of bins which is a huge advantage over a general waste skip bin which does have weight limitations. What’s more, how can you make sure you’re filling it correctly? This is a step-by-step explanation of how to properly load your concrete bin the right way.

#1. Choose the Right Concrete Skip Bin for Your Project

You’ll want to figure out how much storage you’ll want before you hire a concrete skip bin. Concrete Skip bins come in a variety of sizes to accommodate different applications, and prices are by cubic meterage. If your project permits you to gather all the concrete, place it it in the bin and sort them by size and form. This is so you can figure out what goes where to make the most of the space.
If you have any questions about soil or cement that surrounds the concrete, please let us know if you want that included.

#2. Avoid Over-Filling Your Concrete Skip Bin

When filling a concrete skip bin, keep in mind that you can’t fill it any higher than the rim. This is part of the government’s health and safety legislation! Transporting any form of garbage container beyond its size restrictions is legally unlawful. Overloaded skip bins are dangerous, most businesses (including ours) will avoid the risk of overwhelming fines.

#3. Pack the Concrete Skip Bin Tightly and Efficiently

Filling your concrete skip bin is the next phase in the procedure, and the trick here is to load it in such a way that you get the most out of the storage you have.
Begin with flat things like tiles that can be put face down, such as roof tiles, floor tiles then pebbles or stones.
Lightweight pieces of concrete can be placed on top and as you load it up, making sure the weight is distributed to prevent the chance of it tipping over.

#4. Avoid Air Pockets As Much As Possible

To avoid gaps and air pockets when renting and utilizing a concrete skip bin, try to make it as snug as possible. Consider it like a puzzle: you’re loading the skip, but in between the bulkier things you’re fitting in tiny goods.

Conclusion
