Tips for filling your skip effectively

Using a skip is one of the most cost effective and easiest ways to deal with varying amounts of waste. With the skip hire Lincoln trusts us for, we offer different sizes to allow you to choose something that matches your needs.

If you want to ensure that the disposal of your items is efficient, then you not only need to choose the right company but must load with care. You might believe that filling a space like this is as simple as throwing anything you no longer want inside. However this is not true; having a plan will ensure that you maximise the available space and can fill it with all your waste.

Suitable Rubbish

Firstly you need to know what you cannot put in before you get carried away and use your skip for something that you shouldn’t. Here are some examples of items that you cannot throw in:

  • Tyres, Batteries and Oil
  • Flammable Materials
  • Asbestos
  • Poisonous Chemicals


If you pile all of your waste together, this will help you get a more accurate size estimate. You should do this close to where you intend to place the skip. As a result it will be easier and faster to move it in when the module arrives.


If you do not have a plan, you will more than likely end up wasting space. To begin with you should lay all flat items in the bottom. If there is any waste that can be broken up so that it is smaller, you should do this. Bulky and heavy objects should go in next. After this, you can fill up any spaces with smaller items.

Skips have a fill line for a very important reason. This is for the safety of you, the worker loading the skip to take it away, and others on the road. You should not go over it as most companies will not accept the skip or will charge you extra.
