How to Efficiently Fill Your Skip

When you have waste that needs to be disposed of, the best way to do it is by using a skip. A skip is like a large container that you can fill with your waste and then have it collected and taken away. It’s a very efficient way to get rid of your waste and it’s also very convenient.

However, there are some things you need to keep in mind when filling your skip. In this article, we will explain how to fill your skip in an efficient manner so that you don’t have to worry about having to call someone back to remove extra waste later on.

Categorise your waste

The first thing you need to do is to categorise your waste. You can do this by putting all of your waste into four different categories:

1. Flat items.

2. Tessellate objects (bricks, tiles, flags etc).

3. Large or bulky items.

4. Loose debris.

This will make it easier for you to know what goes where and it will also help you to fill your skip in an organised manner.

Filling the Skip

Once you have categorised your waste, you can start filling your skip. The best way to do this is to start with the flat items. This includes things like cardboard boxes and pieces of wood. By starting with the flat items, you’ll be able to create a foundation for the rest of the waste that you’ll be putting in the skip.

After you’ve put the flat items in, you can then start to add the tessellate objects. These are things like bricks, tiles and flags. You want to make sure that these objects are evenly spread out so that they don’t create any gaps.

Once you’ve added the tessellate objects, you can then start to add the large or bulky items. These are things like sofas and mattresses. You want to make sure that these items are placed in the middle of the skip so that they’re evenly balanced.

Next, you can add the loose debris. This includes things like soil, sand and rubble. You want to make sure that this is placed at the top of the skip so that it doesn’t fall out when the skip is being moved.
