The reasons for getting skips in Dublin could be endless. Whether it is time to give the garden a good cleaning or whether it is the end of the festivities and the house needs clearing up. Or maybe a renovation is being done in the house and there is so much debris and items that need to go.  For whatever reasons one might chose to hire skips in Dublin, they’ll need to be careful in using the skip. There are certain rules and safety measures to be considered when filling them and each one must be used properly before hiring another.

To make the most out of your skips, consider the following tricks:

1.   The Size of Skips in Dublin:

Before you hire a skip, make sure to calculate the size that will be large enough for your needs. If you get one that is too small, you’ll have to pay for another one. If you get one that is too big then you’ll just be wasting money, when you could have gotten a smaller one that cost less.

2.   Start with Lighter Debris:

It is wiser to place the debris first as it will take minimum space when poured at once and will be compressed when larger items are placed on top. Adding debris after placing large items can cause it to take more space than it should.

3.   Break up bulky items:

Large items will fill-up the skips Dublin faster. For creating more space, consider breaking down larger items like branches and bushes into smaller pieces. This will allow other items to fit easily.

4.   Segregate Your Waste:

Categorizing and dividing your waste into  types will save you from loads of trouble. To make the most out of your skips and to occupy every inch of the space, try loading things according to their type and into layers. For instance place all the debris first, then breakdown tree branches, then collect all the bricks and place it in the third layer and so forth. Keep crushing the breakable items to create more space.

5.   Know what you need and what you don’t:

Before you start filling up your skip, make sure you know what is of your use and what needs to be thrown away. Realizing that you might need something later will cause lots of inconvenience as you will have to remove all the items again.

6.   Prevent form loading prohibited Items:

There are certain items that are prohibited to be loaded into the skips due to safety concerns. Some of these items include:

  • Fridges;
  • Chemicals;
  • Paint Tins;
  • Microwaves;
  • Television;
  • Toasters;
  • Tires;
  • Vehicle batteries;
  • Electrical equipment;
  • Compressed Gas Cylinders;
  • Explosives;
  • Medical Waste;

7.   Never overload:

Overloading should be avoided at all costs, not just because it is charged extra to overload but also because of safety. Anything heavy can roll out of the skips and injure someone badly.

Make sure that you keep the pets and kids away from the skip area and keep the skip out of the way. Also, be careful when lifting heavy items and always call for assistance.
