The client will be responsible for ensuring that the skip bin truck has easy access to allow for drop off and pick up of the skip bin.

9. Skip Bin Overloading
To ensure safe loading and transport of the skip bin, the client is to ensure that the contents inside the bin do not exceed the top lip of the skip bin. This will prevent materials falling off the truck when it is in transit.
