  • Safety Considerations For Skip Bin Hire

hen loading a skip bin. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), such as gloves and sturdy footwear, to protect yourself from sharp objects or hazardous waste. Additionally, be mindful of proper lifting techniques to avoid strain or injury.

  • Prepare the Work Area

Clear the area where the skip bin is going to be placed to create a safe and accessible workspace. Remove any obstacles or debris that may hinder the loading process. Your Go Bins Gold Coast skip bin specialist will make sure the skip bin is placed on stable ground to prevent tipping or shifting while loading.

  • Organise and Sort Waste

Before loading the skip bin, organise and sort your waste. Separate recyclables from general waste and hazardous materials. This practice facilitates recycling efforts and ensures compliance with waste and avoids hefty fines.

  • Proper Lifting and Carrying Techniques

When lifting and carrying waste items, use proper techniques to prevent strain or injury. Bend your knees, maintain a straight back, and lift with your legs, not your back. Avoid twisting your body while carrying heavy items and ask for assistance if needed.

  • Load Heavier Items First

To maintain stability and prevent items from shifting, load heavier items at the bottom of the skip bin. Place larger and bulkier items first, ensuring an even distribution of weight throughout the bin. This also ensures you can fit the most waste into the bin.

  • Distribute Weight Evenly

Distribute the weight of the waste evenly within the skip bin. Avoid placing all the weight on one side, as this can cause imbalance and potentially lead to tipping or difficulties during collection.

  • Avoid Overloading

Do not exceed the maximum fill line indicated on the skip bin. Overloading can compromise safety, transportation, and waste disposal processes. If necessary, consider hiring an additional skip bin or consult the provider for alternative solutions.

  • Do Not Dispose of Hazardous Materials

Skip bins are not intended for the disposal of hazardous materials. Avoid placing chemicals, asbestos, paint, batteries, or other hazardous substances in the skip bin. Properly dispose of such materials according to local regulations and guidelines. And if you aren’t sure, always give us a call to check an item’s suitability.
