Bin Safety- Filling Instructions

FOR THE SAFETY OF OUR OPERATORS & YOU THE ROAD USER YOU MUST:

  • FILL TO THE TOP OF THE BIN ONLY
  • KEEP WASTE/RUBBISH FULLY WITHIN THE BIN
  • LOAD THE BIN EVENLY
  • LOAD HEAVIEST ITEMS AT THE BOTTOM & LIGHTER MATERIALS ON TOP. THIS KEEPS A LOWER CENTRE OF GRAVITY FOR ROAD TRANSPORT & TIPPING.

Most of our Skip Bins are fitted with a door for safe loading & easy access. If you are getting another quote please check that your skip bin has a “door” in it. Many other companies quote with a “ramp” which is just a plank leaning on the side of the bin. Not only is this dangerous but poses Occupational Health & Safety issues for you, your employees & sub contractors using the bin. Imagine wheeling a barrow of rubble up the ramp & falling off injuring your back – You become liable for the injury (OUCH).

When filling the bin please consider the safety of our operators & other road users. Please fill to the top of the bin only & keep the waste fully within the bin. It is illegal to travel with a dangerous load on Queensland roads. We have a duty of care to our employees & also other road users. We are sure you would not like a truck to pass you on the road & a brick come off through your windscreen.

All of our Skip Bins are “tarped” for transport to prevent material from blowing out whilst underway, however a tarp cannot support large heavy objects from sliding out. Also the tarp is designed to cover the bin. If the Skip Bin is overloaded the tarp cannot do its job & the bin becomes dangerous to transport. Should our operators feel that any bin is unsafe to transport we will contact you to rectify the problem or if you are not contactable the operator may unload the offending material from the skip bin.

Please do not move the Skip Bin from where it is placed as it may not be safely picked up when the Skip Bin is full.  Moving the skip bins with a car or bobcat causes damage to the bin as well (bends the side so the door won’t open or close). Please discuss your needs when booking the Skip Bin or with the driver on site when the bin is delivered to prevent additional charges being incurred.

Please no dangerous goods in our bins !!!!!! No Tyres, No Gas bottles. No liquid waste (Oil, Thinners, Paint etc) No explosives or flammable items (thinners, paint etc) No asbestos, No wet cement as this sticks to the bin. Please no fires in the bin !!!!!!

Thank you for your understanding & commitment to road safety.
