Skip hire is an affordable and convenient way of disposing of larger quantities of the household of garden waste. If you don’t already know of a reputable skip hire company in your local area then be sure to ask around, alternatively do some online research. Most companies nowadays have a website, and any reputable skip hire company should provide detailed information on their waste management scheme.
Below we look at some of the reasons you may wish to consider hiring a skip:
Ease and Convenience:
Once you have decided on the size of the skip require for the particular job in hand (if in any doubt it makes sense to go for a slightly larger one that you feel you may require), your skip will be delivered to your home. Once full, simply give the skip hire a company a call and they will return and collect it. Meaning the only hassle for you are actually doing the work needed to fill it, not the multiple trips disposing of it and sorting it, then you may be used to.
No More Getting Your Hands Dirty:
As I’m sure you will agree with sorting through refuse is never a pleasant job, and now you won’t have to. Disposing of the waste in an eco-friendly way is the job and responsibility of the skip hire company. When employing the services of a reputable company you also have a piece of mind knowing that they will do their very best to recycle as much of the waste as possible.
Hiring a skip really can make the job so much easier, but there are also a few things that you should know:
Placement : Depending on the placement of the skip you are likely to need a permit. if you are unsure of this you can always look on your local council’s website or give them a call, alternatively, if you have already hired a company they will be able to inform you if a permit is required or not. If one is required, often the skip hire company are able to liaise with the local council to gain a permit on your behalf. Some councils, however, do require the homeowner to personally apply for the permit, if this is the case and you are unsure how to do this, simply ask the skip hire firm, they will be able to advise you.
Heath And Safety: For health and safety reasons, there are certain items which you must refrain from disposing of in the skip, again upon hire you should be provided with details of such items.
Summary: Hiring a skip gives you more time onsite actually doing the work as opposed to the time spent at your local waste station. Meaning that you can normally get the work completed much quicker!
