Some Top Tips If You Invest in Garbage Bins

Hey! My name is Brian and I would like to offer you some top tips which will help you to invest in the best garbage bins for your business. When I opened my first restaurant, I was far too busy worrying about the menu and the staff to think about the bins. However, after a few weeks, I soon realised that I needed to make an investment in new garbage bins to deal with all of the food waste. My brother gave me some great advice and I hired 2 large bins which provide me with the perfect way to dispose of food waste.

You Probably Don't Want an Aboveground Swimming Pool: How to Cope With Rain When You Rent a Skip Bin

The day has come and soon it will be gone. All that clutter around your home, finally gone! This is probably what you're thinking when your skip bin is due to be delivered so you can finally commence the great uncluttering. But wouldn't you know it? The weather has decided to be most uncooperative, and masses of water will soon be tumbling down from the clouds. Skip bins aren't exactly designed with rain in mind, and enough of a shower has the potential to turn your rented skip bin into a rather unpleasant aboveground swimming pool. So what are some quick solutions when the weather turns nasty on the day you planned to declutter your home?

Change the Date

This one might seem blindingly obvious, but it never hurts to get in touch with your skip bin hire company and see if they can delay delivery until a better day if the weather forecast is predicting rain. This depends on the availability of a bin on the new day, and there might be a small surcharge for a last-minute change, but this is a far better option than trying to fill a skip bin when it's pouring outside. But what if the date can't be changed?

A Simple Addition

Maybe you simply won't have the time needed to do the work on the following weekend, or even in the foreseeable future. Then you need to work around the rain. Contact the skip bin company and see if they can amend your booking to a bin with a lid. It's just a hinged plastic lid that covers the top of the bin, allowing any rain to simply drain off. It can also be locked, if you are at all concerned that your neighbours might also decide to declutter their homes using your skip bin. Again, a small surcharge might be imposed, but a simple lid can make all the difference. But what if you have already received a bin without a lid when the rain begins to fall?

Cover Up

If the rain starts to fall and the bin is without a lid, you're going to have to improvise. Do you have any tarpaulins at home? Failing this, plastic drop sheets will do. Don't have those? A number of heavy-duty plastic rubbish bags will do in a pinch. Cover the top of the bin with the plastic, ensuring that the edges of the plastic overhangs the rim of the skip bin so that the water will run off. Weigh the plastic in place with bricks or wooden blocks, taking care not to tear the plastic. It's not the best solution, and yet it can still prevent the skip bin from becoming an aboveground swimming pool.

Ideally, the weather will be your friend on the day when you need to fill your skip bin. But it's important to have a plan B if this doesn't turn out to be the case! Contact a company like A West Bin for additional advice.
