What NOT to put in the Skip Bin

It’s that time of year when you may decide on taking on that new bathroom or kitchen renovation? Maybe you’re landscape designing or tidying up the yard? You may even be tackling the overflown garage of items you keep storing in there in the hope it will come in handy some day. Either way, you will have a lot of rubbish to remove and your average council bin is just not going to be up to the job. So what do you do? I mean you could load up your car and take several trips to the landfil site…and then a trip to the car wash to wash your car…and then come home too tired to finish the job. Or, you could actually be prepared ahead of time and organise a company that specialises in skip bin hire in Perth WA!  When it comes to choosing a reliable, professional provider of  mini skip bins in Perth, look no further than WA Skips for all your waste management needs.

Actually there are strict rules and regulations in our state that you will need to adhere to, in order to ensure the safety of residents and the environment. A reputable company offering skip bin hire in Perth WA will know exactly what you can and cannot put in and will let you know in advance so you don’t make any mistakes.

While there are a substantial list of materials and waste products you can put in the skip bin, there’s a small number of items you cannot put in a skip bin as they require to be taken care of in a particular means.

However, here is a list for you to look at before you call to help you decide what type of skip bin you will need and what you cannot simply dispose of:

  • Fluorescent tubes
  • Asbestos (unless the container has been given, specifically for asbestos removal, as well as has been prepared in accordance with Job Cover demands).
  • Tyres
  • Fridges or freezers
  • Batteries (including car batteries)
  • Paint tins (containing paint)
  • Clinical waste
  • Gas bottles including small cylinders
  • Liquid waste (including oil & paint)
  • Uncooked meat products
  • TVs & monitors
  • Corrosives or irritants
  • Fibro (coarse (or fibre) concrete sheets)
  • Nitroglycerins and other environmentally hostile substances or objects most likely to trigger injury or damages
  • Hazardous chemicals and toxins
  • Acids, solvents, minerals, greases
  • Harmful products (oil, gas, thinners)
  • Herbicides and chemicals
  • Cushions
  • Needles as well as syringes and other medical waste
  • Food scraps

Additionally, the following are also not allowed to be disposed of in eco-friendly waste containers:.

  • Tree stumps or branches above 100mm diameter.
  • Fence palings
  • Timbers
  • Copper logs
  • Sleepers ( If you are not exactly sure, ask your miss container hire firm).

As you can see, there are most likely a variety of items that you might not have actually taken into consideration that would certainly not be allowed to be thrown in the skip bin.

To get rid of harmful, hazardous products you require to contact your neighbourhood council. Yet your first step is to always ask your skip hire company about what you can safely put in the container.

So, what will happen if you accidentally place incorrect items in the skip bin?

Added charges will relate to polluted bins. Extra penalties may also be charged from council particularly for the inaccurate discarding of unsafe products.

What can you do to ensure you comply?

Don’t be put off hiring a skip bin because of this list. If you cannot dispose of them in a skip bin, you certainly can’t dispose of it in a landfill site or dump it elsewhere. To ensure you are compliant, contact the company providing skip bin hire in Perth WA and ask them to provide you with a written list of what you can and cannot put into one of their skip bins.

When ordering a skip bin, order one with a cover or lockable cover to stop other people from illegally disposing non-compliant rubbish in your bin.
