Factors to consider Hiring a Bin for your Wastes

Tim Graham

Skip bins have made it easy for the transportation of large volumes of garbage from one place to waste disposal sites or landfills. It goes without saying that not everyone owns a skip bin. In fact, the number of people who own personal skip bins can be so little as this is something not anyone thinks of having unless they own a garbage collection service company. Skip bins are therefore hired in instances where one is doing general cleanups in their homes, moving houses, renovations as well as landscaping or construction. The hiring process is quite simple as it involves finding someone who is willing to do the job for you. In spite of this, however, it is still important to consider several factors which will make sure you get the right service from the bin providers.

  1. The Wastes Allowed in the Bins– While loading up the bins, there are several things one is not allowed to put unless disclosure has been sought after. For instance, most of the hiring companies have strict regulations about hazardous materials. This can only be done in instances where the skip bin operator has been licensed by the relevant authorities to carry the materials. One example of such a material is asbestos. It is considered toxic to the environment and therefore requires a special license from the authorities to be carried in the bins. Also, the asbestos will be carried inside plastic wrap which will seal the material in the bin. Other items such as tyres and mattresses do require additional processing during disposal. With this, they end up incurring additional fees which will be used in the processing of the wastes.
  2. Carrying Capacity of the Bins – This is also another feature to know as it will determine the type of bin required for the amount of waste present. The bins come in assorted shapes and sizes which play a factor in their volumes as well as weight carrying capabilities. Another thing which matters is the density of the load which is to be carried by the garbage truck collecting the bin. One should always ensure that the waste being transported fits the bin perfectly as the truck is not legally allowed to transport bins which are full past the rim. This will be considered as an unsafe load and you may end up in trouble with the authorities. Having the right size of bin will ensure that all your waste is well transported without instances of overfilling.

Hello! My name is Richard and this is my new blog. On this blog, I hope to pass on some useful information about how to work with contractors. I recently decided that I wanted to give my property a complete overhaul. I wanted to have a new roof installed, the interior remodelled and the driveway repaired. I asked around and I put together a great team of contractors who could all work together to get the job done. However, that isn't to say there wasn't the occasion challenge during such a big project. I learnt a lot from the experience and I am really pleased with the work that the contractors carried out.
