Skips are for general waste only, no Fridges, no TV's or monitors, hazardous waste which includes paints, solvents liquids or asbestos should ever be disposed of within the confines of the skip.
Before you order a skip you should ensure that the skip supplier can place the skip on private property.Where can the skips be placed?
Skips cannot be placed on the roadside without a permit and correct signage and lights. You must contact your supplier if you cannot place on private land. Your supplier may also be able to help organise this. Alternatively, they may also be able to organise a wait and load facility.What size do I need?
Be realistic about what you have to throw away as getting two skips can be far more expensive than one big one! All skips must be evenly loaded so they can be safely transported on the road.
Note: When placing refuse in a skip, it is greatly advised to try to sort the refuse into plastics, metals and glass to make it easier for recycling.
Not all skips can cope with inert/builders waste as the vehicle may not be able to lift or transport it legally.
Skips have many uses and come in handy when:
- Renovating home or workplaces.
- Disposing of light weight furniture. (e.g stools, chairs and work surfaces)
- Disposing or garden waste (e.g top soil, branches, trees, flowers, weeds etc)
