When filling up your skip bin, remember not to overload

Overloaded bins can be unsafe. Follow these simple rules to load your bin safely:

  1. Do not overfill your bin, it must not be filled above the rim
  2. Evenly distribute the weight of your waste across the bin – heavy items on the bottom and lighter items on top
  3. Make sure you have the right bin type for your waste type, see our skip bin sizes and types
