Bulky Items, Rear Gates and Easy Access

When considering a 4 cubic metre skip bin, the size of items to be discarded and accessibility are essential factors. Easy access is a big issue for many people due to bulky waste.

This type of large container can take in different big objects such as furniture pieces, home appliances, construction rubble and garden waste. The 4 cubic metre skip bin is ideal in many ways.

Make sure that the chosen bin is easy to reach for loading purposes or when time comes for pick-up. Most suppliers bins have rear doors included, which aids the disposal process by making it faster.

Rear doors mean that you will be able to utilise a ramp to push a wheelbarrow up to the lip of the skip bin.

This is ideal for heavier waste materials. Be sure to check when you book that your skip bin will have a ramp included so that you know easy access is going to be part of your experience.

As mentioned above, we offer separate skip bins for different waste types. The reason for this is that it makes it much easier for us to recycle.

When we have skip bins full of only green waste for example, then that waste can be sent to a special place where it will be sorted and recycled into compost.

If green waste was to be mixed with plastics for example, that would mean the whole load was wasted.
