All about Skip Hires

by | Jun 13, 2023 | Construction and Maintenance

Everyone is responsible for proper waste management as it ensures a clean environment. One of the ways of maintaining a clean environment is by disposing waste in responsible ways. Skips offer responsible ways of disposing the waste materials. They come in different sizes and shapes so you hire the size that meets your needs.

Who uses skips?

The people who benefit most from skip hire in Didcot are those with a lot of waste to dispose. People in construction sites and those moving offices stand to benefit the most from skip hires. Skips have a limitation of what can be disposed so if you plan to place it in a public place, make sure it is covered to prevent people from throwing unwanted waste into the skip.

What can you dispose?

* Plastic

* Wood

* Cardboard

* Rubble

* Furniture

* Domestic waste

* Organic waste

* Metal

* Soil

As you hire a skip, you need to consider where you will place the skip bin. Skips are delivered by trucks so the bins can only be placed where the trucks can access like on the roadside or parking garages. If the skip bin is placed on council land, you will be required to get a skip hire permit from the council.

Skips are charged depending on the size requested: large skips cost more than small ones. Reduce the amount of load to be disposed so that you do not hire a large skip. You can do this by recycling or donating some of the things.

Important tips

* Do not try to put prohibited waste at the bottom or in the middle of the skip because the skip hire will find out. The waste is normally emptied and separated before disposing.

* Make sure you use a company licensed for skip hire in Didcot. Did you know you can be fined if you use a company that is not licensed?
