    THE GENERAL LIGHT WASTE SKIP BIN

    All general waste skip bins, have a weight limit 150kg per cubic metre, what does this mean to our customers that are willing to do the right thing, they pay less for their skip bin hire.

    All skip bins have strict restriction on what waste, is acceptable and what waste is not. Incorrect waste, placed in any skip will incur an additional charge. However, the difference with a general waste skip is the price, see with a general waste skip it is according to the weight limit of the skip. This is to make sure when you make the right choice you pay less and only if you should exceed the weight limit are you charged extra.

    Skip Bins Online recommends you take the time to go over the below, so that you completely understand what is classified as general rubbish.

    When choosing a general waste skip bin please consider the following:

    The general waste skip bin is used for just that general waste, things that are in your home or office on day to day bases, such as electrical goods, white goods, cupboards, unwanted personal objects, furniture, toys, minimal books, office furniture, and light dry green foliage such as grass clippings. Everyday items,  those things we all collect that either need replacing or updating that have accumulated over time that just need be sorted, trimmed & cleared out.

    What should not to be placed in a general waste skip, are things like bricks, soil, concrete, carpet, pebbles, tiles, sandstone, renovation waste, heavy landscape waste, tree trunks. All of these items are classified as heavy waste.

    Should you require a skip for heavy materials you will find a skip bin to suit your waste disposal needs with Skip Bins Online but these items are definitely not suited for a general waste skip, if you wish to stay within your weight limit.

    In summary the general waste bin, to hire is one of the cheapest waste type bins, if you follow Skip Bins Online strict guidelines for this waste category and never fill the bin above the rim, than you should not pay more for your skip.

Remembering you have entered into an agreement to pay any additional tip fees should any be required direct to the skip bin provider who supplied your skip bin. The extra weight charges can be seen upon your quote and again repeated on your confirmation email, and also again on the same email you will be reminded of what can and cannot go in your general waste skip bin. STRICTLY NO HARZARDOUS WASTE.
