Things to Consider When Doing a Bathroom Renovation
Are you planning to give your bathroom a makeover? Here are some things to keep in mind.
Amount of Tiles
Sometimes it works out to be more cost effective to hire 2 Skip the Tip bins instead of 1. Items like concrete/brick/tile and tile product (i.e Toilet) can be recycled. With bins containing these products all of the weight is included.
The smallest Skip bin (2m3) when filled can weigh in excess of 2 tonne. Tile product can be deceiving as on their own they do not weigh a lot, however in large quantities the weight adds up quickly.
Homes built prior to 1990 may contain asbestos, a popular location for this product is in the bathroom and kitchen area. Asbestos can not go into a general waste bin. A dedicated bin is required for this product with specific loading instructions.
Glass product is fine to go into a skip, no special handling is required.
Skip Bin Size
Consider the items that you are disposing of, your Skip bin can not have items exceeding the rim. Items like shower screens and bench tops are items to consider when selecting your bin size.
