1. Type of Waste
If you are doing a landscaping project, then you will likely be dealing with green waste. Green waste consists of limbs, grass clippings and other natural waste from your landscape. You may have general waste from cleaning out a home, such as appliances and furniture. Other types of waste are asbestos, brick and heavy waste like soil and concrete.
2. Placement of the Bin
Consider how you will get the waste to the bin. If you will be dropping it from a second story, you will need a chute. You need to consider if the chute placement will work for not only the skip bin but also for your daily life as you come and go from the house.
3. Size of the Bin
The estimate can be based on trailer amounts. If you are getting a skip bin that is 1 cubic meter, it will handle around a trailer-sized load of debris. If you are handling rooms in a home renovation or remodeling, then you may want to consider 1 cubic meter per room to handle the full amount of waste disposal.
If you will be handling mixed amounts of waste, such as a landscaping project combined with a home renovation, then you may need much larger skip bins. Remember, mixed waste skip bins will also be available in larger sizes to help accommodate your needs. You can share your project ideas with a representative to gain a better idea of the size you will need.
4. Length of Skip Bin Hire
Make sure you consider the length of time you need as well as weather and scheduling issues and book a time according to that amount or a little longer. This will help reduce extra fees and ensure you have the skip bin for the time you need.
