Maximise your Space for Waste Disposal

Packing your rubbish efficiently is an important part of effective skip bin waste management. Breaking down large items helps to fill out space that might not otherwise be in use. Similarly, flattening out cardboard boxes and laying them out neatly helps get the most out of your recycling skip. You can also stack materials where appropriate to create an orderly disposal process, allowing more to fit.

Avoid Overloading Your Skip Bin

You must adhere to the weight and fill level limits specific to each bin. Regulations restrict skips to these limits to prevent overloading. Overloading a bin can pose serious safety risks to you and others, because an over-filled bin may cause rubbish to fall out and injure somebody, damage property or harm the environment. If it’s unsafe to drive, we cannot pick up the bin. When you engage our waste disposal services, going over the limits will incur additional fees at $36 per extra 100kg.

Safety Measures for Your Skip Disposal

There are many measures you can take to ensure the safety of you and the public when you’re filling your skip, such as:

  • Having a clear waste management plan
  • Avoiding clearing hazardous materials yourself
  • Wearing protective gear when handling waste, such as goggles, masks and gloves
  • Ensuring you’re using the proper lifting techniques to prevent injuries
  • Placing up warning signs, such as cones or caution tape to prevent others from coming too close

How to Stop Unauthorized Use of Skip Bin in Central Coast

Unauthorised dumping is a common problem in skip bins, and it’s important to prevent it to avoid additional expenses and to maintain control over your waste disposal. The team at L&D Brown Skip Bins has over 40 years of experience providing Central Coast residents with effective waste-storage solutions. In this article, we discuss the importance of strategic skip bin placement, effective signage, proper surveillance, community awareness and protective measures. Explore our website to assess the different skip bin options today.

Strategic Placement to Keep Your Skip Bin Secure

One of the main reasons people illegally dump waste into a skip is because of its location. Keeping your skip in a well-lit and highly visible area deters people from throwing their rubbish in with yours. Greater visibility means better surveillance, which deters illegal dumping. If you can, keep it inside of your property.

Signage to Prevent Unauthorised Skip Usage

When you receive your skip, use the correct signage to indicate that it’s for authorised use only. Include relevant contact information for reporting unauthorised dumping. A prominent warning sign is an extremely effective tool for preventing the illegal dumping of waste.

Surveillance to Deter Illegal Dumping

Installing surveillance cameras or implementing monitoring systems deters and identifies individuals unlawfully attempting to use the skip bin. Unauthorised dumping can result in extra charges for you if the skip exceeds the required weight limit, and fees apply to extra weight at $36 per 100kg. Surveillance can also keep your skip bin secure from banned substances or items incurring surcharges, such as:

  • Asbestos
  • Fibro
  • Liquid
  • Chemical waste
  • Resin
  • Oil or fuel
  • Soil or fill
  • Medical waste
  • Synthetic grass
  • Tree stumps with a diameter greater than 50cm
  • Gas cylinders
  • Fire extinguishers
  • Oil heaters
  • All types of batteries

Take Proactive Measures

There are a variety of handy tips for protecting your skip from illegal usage.

Schedule Carefully

Scheduling your skip carefully can help ensure you fill it up before anyone can add their rubbish. Allowing it to sit empty for many days encourages people to use it for themselves.

Park Your Skip in Your Driveway

You can also park the skip in your drive, because the closer the proximity to your house, the more it will deter potential illegal usage.

Extra Security Lighting

Motion-sensor lights are an excellent option for scaring away people who are trying to sneak rubbish into your bin.

Cover the Skip

Covering your bin with a tarp is an effective way of deterring people from using it. Physically preventing access ensures 100% control over your waste disposal. It will also help to keep the rain out to not add additional weight to your waste.
