4 Tips on Maximising the Capacity of Your Skip Bin

Most of the time when we order skips, the tendency is to fill it as quickly as possible with no thought about the order or if any of the items can be recycled. However, by taking these kinds of things into account, you can not only save yourself space in the skip but also cash too.

Here we have made a simple list of 4 tips to help you get the most bang for your buck when it comes to filling your skip.

The waste type you put into your skip bin is super important too. Check out what is considered General Waste right here.
