There are lots of things you can do to make the most of your skip space and we are going to talk you through a couple of ways you can optimise the space in your skip and get the best out of your skip.
A frequently made error on the part of people who hire skips is that they dispose of all their waste on one go and without any thought. In reality you need to take some time to think about what you are going to be disposing of in the skip. The overriding piece of guidance that you should always consider is: think ahead before you load up.
Bigger items at the bottom
It may seem natural to load from the bottom of the skip with bigger items first, but is actually a bit of a rookie error and a much more wasteful approach. What you need to do is focus on getting rid of bigger and lighter items. This means that they can be compounded later on by heavier items. You’ll see that, as you fill your skip, the heavier waste will free up more room as you keep loading, pressing the lighter waste further to the base of the skip, this means less wasted space throughout.
Dismantle any items you can
Any bigger items that can be broken up, dismantled and flattened need to be done prior to being chucked out. Ensuring that items are more compact indicates they will take up a bit less room and leave fewer pockets of space in your skip, this allows them to fit more conveniently with all your other waste. This goes for items such as boxes, wardrobes and fixtures and fittings, so remember to think before you load.
