Remember not to overload your skip

Overloaded bins can be unsafe. Follow these simple rules to load your bin safely:

  1. Don’t fill your bin above the rim
  2. Evenly distribute the weight of your waste - load heavy items on the bottom and lighter items on the top
  3. Make sure you have the right bin for the right type of waste
