Tips For Hazardous Waste Removal

There is more to hazardous waste removal than you may have initially thought. Here are some of the ways you can remove hazardous waste:

Ask yourself whether the waste is dangerous?

If you’re looking for skip hire Preston or skips for hire in Chorley, Lostock Skip Hire ask that you only fill the skip with non-hazardous materials.

Dangerous materials can not only affect the environment but personal health too. Hazardous waste that’s thrown into Wigan domestic skips provided by Lostock Skip Hire can lead to serious medical conditions. These medical conditions are caused by hazardous waste such as asbestos. Asbestos can lead to the development of lung cancer and asbestosis!

As well as this, don’t dispose of batteries within your skip.

Be responsible.

Lostock Skip Hire can help you to protect the environment and health and well-being. Hiring a skip from us will allow you to dispose of your waste safely, however, it’s essential you only fill the skip with safe products. If you need any advice regarding what can and can’t go in our skips, feel free to speak to our team of experts!

If you already have a waste management plan, then why aren’t you adhering to it? Be careful what products you throw out – they can contaminate other recyclable waste meaning that the waste has to be treated before it can be recycled. We advise you to pay particular attention to what you’re filling your Lostock skip with, separating the hazardous from the non-hazardous waste will enable you to save money.

Keep electrical waste out.

Nowadays, we are always using electricals. However, did you know that they can be extremely harmful and you shouldn’t dispose of them alongside your general waste?

If you’re looking for skip hire in Preston and are considering a skip from Lostock Skip Hire to accommodate for your unwanted/damaged electricals – we ask you to reconsider. Electricals are a form of hazardous waste and they aren’t suitable for skips, if disposed of incorrectly, these can cause amongst other things numerous forms of cancer. Why not consider our local tipping facilities? This way you can keep your electricals separate and take these to the tip where they can be recycled!

Comply with current legislation.

The skips for hire in Wigan are delivered using our up to date fleets, providing you with a reliable service. It’s suggested that you keep up to date with the latest updates regarding hazardous waste disposal, making sure that you’re only filling your skip with suitable materials.

1st ever ordering and paying for a skip online. Easy website to navigate simple and efficient. Had to check the day after just to be sure, spoke to Sarah who made me feel like I was speaking to a friend. Skip arrived and positioned by Eliot to an excellent standard, he to was polite, laid back, extremely competent and again ever so friendly (not your fake American type friendly) You can even order online for the same day if slots available. Thank you DD paving for the recommendation. Lostock skips far surpass other skip companies. You should all be very chuffed and proud of yourselves 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍read more

I hired an 8 yard skip. Was highly surprised with how cheap the skip was. The woman I spoke to on the phone was very polite and informative. The skip was delivered within the time slot I was given, the driver was also very polite. I rang to arrange collection and the skip was collected with no issues. Highly recommend Lostock Skip Hire and will be using them again in the near future.read more

I needed three skips over a couple of months to help with a house renovation. Felt a bit daunted by the number of skip companies out there, however I plumped for Lostock Skips. Glad I did! Faultless service, timely delivery of skips, friendly drivers and very competitive prices. The lady who booked my skips was always efficient. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.read more

I have to say that I was delighted with the service I received from Lostock Skip Hire, from the very first call to the condition of the skip, the delivery and placing, it seemed nothing was too much trouble to anyone in the business. Customer service is excellent, the driver was very understanding and accommodating when required to unload in a tight space, a very welcome change from the usual, how should I say, less than helpful service on can often get from a skip hire company.Special thanks to Lucy for helping me with my late change of mind, she couldn’t have done more to make sure everything was provided as required.Give them a try, you will not regret it Markread more
