3 Actions To Undertake After Your Garden Cleanup Project


If you have decided to assume substantial garden cleaning to get rid of excess branches, twigs, leaves and bushes, then you've got your work cut out for you. The removal process requires effort, while the disposal activity requires both effort and planning for skip bin hire. This guide is designed to equip you with actions to undertake after your massive garden cleanup project.

Sort Out Your Garden Waste Based On The Bin Hire Rules 

When sorting out your garden waste for the skip bin, you need to establish what can and cannot be put into it based on the rules of your bin hire company. This will make it easier for you to plan your bin fill up. For instance, garden waste like grass, leaves, clippings, branches and twigs are allowed into most green waste bins, but heavier items like soil and dirt may need to be disposed off separately. Some bin hire companies allow soil and dirt to be included in the garden waste disposal bin, so be sure to check this in advance to avoid any confusion later. Keep in mind that any other materials like concrete pavers, rubble and sand in your garden may not be treated as green waste, so it's always best to check.

Place The Skin Bin On Concrete Or Hard Ground For Minimal Garden Damage

Placing a skip bin on your grass or lawn may cause a dent to the surface, which will look unsightly on your recently manicured garden. Instead, it's best to place the skip bin on concrete or hard ground to ensure minimal damage to your garden when loading it with green waste. Make sure you place the skip bin in an easily accessible location, so that you can move seamlessly between the bin and the waste during the process of loading.

Avoid Overloading The Skip Bin

Overloading the skip bin will eventually result in a fine or an extra cost because the driver will have to unload a few items to ensure that nothing flies out of it in transit. To prevent this from happening, make sure you only load the garden waste to the top of the skip bin without overloading it. Start with heavy branches and twigs at the bottom with leaves and clippings on the top for better load control. If you're driving the bin to the landfill on your own, make sure you cover it with secure tarp to prevent anything from flying off the bin during transport.

Make sure you follow these actions when planning bin hire after your massive garden cleanup project.

Renovating Your House

Hello! Welcome to my blog! My name is Julie and I live in a large house in the suburbs of Perth, Australia. My husband and I moved into our current home a couple of years ago and since then we have been working to transform it into our dream place. The house itself is lovely, but the interior looked like something from the 1970s. When we started our renovation project we didn't have a clue what we were doing. However, with each job we completed and each mistake we made, we learnt a new skill. I decided I would like to share what we have learnt here.
