This is another comon Question I get asked when I pick up our customers skip bins, so I will answer the question simple as possible.

When I go into the transfer station to empty the skip bins I :-


  1. unload the skip bins in an area set aside for skip trucks, where we can safely leave our a skip bins while we go about tipping our bins contents; 
  2. I place two skip bins on the ground;
  3. I pick up the top skip and weigh the truck on the weighbridge;
  4. I tip the contents of the skip into the pit;
  5. I then go back over the weighbridge to weigh off and pay; 
  6. Then I put the first skip down and pick up the second skip bin and do the same thing again.
By picking up two skip bins at a time, it increases my daily productivity, especially during peak periods, it also helps to save fuel and wear and tear on the truck which is quite expensive!
