The Right Way To Load

  • Keep heavy items, such as builders rubble, over the centre of the wheels and spread out evenly.
  • Do not load rubbish above the rim. If the trailer skip bin is fitted with a lid, then it must be able to close and lock.
  • Fill smaller items down low and larger items to the top.
  • Do not overload the trailer skip bins with excessive amounts of heavy building material.
  • Go to our Rates and Pricing page for more information on trailer bin dimensions and load limits.
