SKIP HIRE IN DEVON – HOW TO LOAD THAT PERFECT SKIP!

SKIP HIRE IN DEVON – HOW TO LOAD THAT PERFECT SKIP!

With hundreds of skips coming and going each week from EMS you wouldn’t believe the way some of the skips are loaded! So here’s a lesson in how to load a skip efficiently. Believe it or not, it will help you get more for your money.

If you want to save money on your renovation project, you need to ensure that you load your skip efficiently. If you overfill your skip you could face a fine. To get the most value for your money follow our tips for filling a skip.

We do get the odd customer worthy of a GOLD STAR. Here’ s a couple of examples of how to do it properly

ORGANISE YOUR WASTE

Before placing any items into your skip, you should separate your waste into the following categories (unless of course there’s only one material being disposed of such as inert waste)

FLAT ITEMS SUCH AS –

Cardboard

Styrofoam

Paper

Wooden veneer

TESSELLATE OBJECTS SUCH AS –

Bricks

Tiles

Worktop panels

BULKY ITEMS SUCH AS –

Furniture

Cupboards

Wardrobes

LOOSE DEBRIS SUCH AS –

Sand

Gravel

Soil

BE AWARE OF ANY PROHIBITED ITEMS WHEN SORTING THROUGH AND LOADING YOUR WASTE. YOU MIGHT BE PENALISED IF YOU LOAD A SKIP WITH PROHIBITED ITEMS

PROHIBITED ITEMS INCLUDE –

WEEE waste (e.g. computers, mobile phones)

Medical waste

Batteries

Paints

Solvents

Explosives

The removal of these items requires specialist services. Give us a call if you have hazardous items to dispose of.

RIGHT LET’S START LOADING

FIRST LAYER – FLAT ITEMS

Make sure that all items are as flat as possible before loading the skip. This means flattening all cardboard boxes. 

Begin loading the skip by placing your flat items at the base. You should try and fill the whole area as evenly as you can. These items will be compounded by your heavier items once they’re loaded.

SECOND LAYER – TESSELLATE ITEMS

Place tessellate items on top of the flat items, joining items together to make layers. So if you have a group of bricks for example, arrange them to complete a single layer of bricks across the base. Then, move onto a second layer and so on.

THIRD LAYER – BULKY ITEMS

Break down your bulky items into smaller pieces. For example the legs of a table should be removed from the tabletop. Most pieces of furniture should have some removable components.

Place the flattest items in the skip first. Then add the bulkier items. Try to fill all available space instead of stacking items on top of one another.

FOURTH LAYER – LOOSE DEBRIS

Fill the remaining pockets of space with loose debris. Pour the debris into any gaps or nooks that have formed from the bulkier items.

ADDITIONAL TIPS

Do not overfill your skip. An overfilled skip can be dangerous to transport and will usually land you with a fine. If you have followed the guidelines and are still unable to fit everything in your skip you will probably need to order a second skip. Give us a call or book online.

A handy tip to avoid these problems is to use some foresight and order a skip of the perfect size for your project. On our Skip Hire page you can see the measurements of our skips by length, height and width. There’s even a handy little guide using a commonly known car to give you a better idea of skip size. This should ensure you get the right skip for your job.

WHAT CAN YOU PUT IN YOUR SKIP AND WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO PACK IT ALL IN?

WHAT CAN YOU PUT IN YOUR SKIP AND WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO PACK IT ALL IN?

NEED SKIP HIRE IN EXETER? WE SHARE OUR TOP TIPS FOR THE BEST WAY TO MAXIMIZE THE SPACE IN YOUR SKIP.

Learning how to pack your skip to make the most of the space is important. Whether its a good clear out at home or the office read our top tips for the best way to pack your skip efficiently. By following our useful tips you can make the best use of the space you have, minimize the number of collections you need, and best of all spend less money on disposing of your waste.

LET’S CHECK WHAT CAN AND CAN’T BE LOADED 

One of the first things to think about is what you actually can or can’t include in your skip. There are some items which are completely unacceptable such as paint and asbestos etc. So bear that in mind before you start or you may find yourself having to unload and remove items from your skip which is a waste of time for everyone.

LET’S GET STARTED! HEAVIEST ITEMS GO IN FIRST

So lets start with the heaviest items first. Lay heavy flat items first to form a nice solid base for the rest of your rubbish. Then you can start to load the rest with the biggest, heavy and awkward shaped items. You can then use all the other remaining space around the skip (including the corners) with the smaller items.

SQUISH THE SMALLER ITEMS AS MUCH AS YOU CAN 

For smaller items try to squash them as much as possible. Things such as cardboard boxes can be broken down and wedged in any gaps you have ensuring you sue up all the space available in your skip. Make sure you push the smaller items down as far as you can to stop too much movement or to stop things from blowing out.
