Clean Garbage Bins, Organised Rubbish and Other Garbage Removal Tips

When to hire two skip bins instead of just one

by Jessica Lowe

Hiring a skip bin is almost essential if you're performing home renovations, as it's the easiest way to get rid of all the waste material you'll be accumulating during your renovation. Skip bins come in many different sizes, and most companies offer skip bins that are large enough even if you were to perform a complete home renovation. However, there are instances where it's not just preferred but actually essential that you hire more than one skip bin in order to get the most out of your bin hire. 

Dangerous substances

The most common reason to why you would need to hire more than one skip bin is that you have some material that contains dangerous substances. Asbestos is present in many houses and needs to be disposed of in a certain way to not affect the health and safety of the people handling it. If you have waste that is affected by asbestos, this needs to be separated into its own skip bin in order to be handled properly by the skip bin hire firm. Inform the skip bin hire company before you hire your bins about your situation so that they can prepare to handle the dangerous material. You might also want to consider hiring two bins if you have a lot of material that is affected by black mould, as this too can be harmful to humans.

Heavy material

Another reason for hiring two skip bins instead of just one is if you have a lot of heavy material. The skip bin hiring firm will most likely pick the full skip bin up with a crane or a truck, but if it's too full with heavy material, this might damage their equipment. Consider getting two skip bins if you have a lot of concrete, asphalt or other rock material you wish to put in the skip bin.

Recyclable material

You should also consider hiring two skip bins if you have some material that can be recycled and some that can't. Wood, plasterboard, and concrete are all possible to recycle if the material hasn't become contaminated with other materials. Wood that still has nails in it, for example, can't be recycled as pure wood. Consider hiring an extra skip bin for these materials in order to be more environmentally friendly than you otherwise would be. For this reason, you should consider getting two skip bins even if you're just wasting two different materials if one of them can be recycled and the other can't.

Welcome to my blog. My name is Connie, and I love to write about all kinds of topics. As a self-proclaimed "clean freak", I have a lot of strategies on keeping my house immaculate, and ironically, that attitude extends to my garbage as well. I take steps to make sure the bin stays clean so it doesn't attract bugs or termites. I organise the rubbish so I can use some for composting, send some to the recycling centres and keep my rubbish bags relatively small. I also dabble with other ideas and strategies. If your rubbish smells, if there is too much of it or if you have any other questions or concerns about garbage removal, you have come to the right place.
