What Types of Waste Can I Put in a Skip Bin?

Skip bins are an excellent resource to clean up any kind of rubbish from your Adelaide properties. And while there’s an option for nearly any type of waste, not all materials can be placed into any skip bin.

At Mini Bins Adelaide, we offer skip bins which are classified according to the waste type. Depending on the skip bin you hire, you’ll be able to load your skip with certain waste items and have to avoid others. 

For this reason, it is crucial to get familiar with every waste type and corresponding skip bins Adelaide. This way you can avoid loading your skip with unallowed material. Plus, since different waste type skip bins have different prices, being aware of the types will allow you to keep your finance straight.
