Hazardous Waste and Electrical Waste Disposal

When it comes to maximising the use of your skip, Lostock Skip Hire have just the solution! We offer skip hire in Chorley and Wigan to provide you with the best value for your money, allowing you to dispose of waste effectively.

To dispose of the waste that your domestic or commercial project generates, be sure to choose a skip hire company that can handle all types of waste (like us at Lostock Skips!) Whether you’re looking for skip hire to suit the requirements of your home refurbishment project or to store the waste from your retail business, you could benefit from skip hire Chorley.

Our team of experts are always on hand to make sure that your skip hire Wigan complies with the regulations provided by the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive and the Environment Agency.

With skip hire in Wigan, there are several factors that you need to be mindful of because unfortunately, not everything can be thrown inside your skip. Take hazardous and electrical waste for instance!

Hazardous Waste

Out of all waste types, hazardous waste is arguably the most difficult one to deal with. Because it contains toxic chemicals and substances, it requires careful disposal and should not be disposed of in any skip that we provide for skip hire in Bolton.

Hazardous waste disposal needs to meet stringent regulations- this includes keeping potential dangerous materials separate from the general waste inside your skip. Although our skip hire Bolton is not suitable for hazardous waste materials, we can help you to dispose of items in a way that’s safe and environmentally sustainable.

Types of Hazardous Waste.

Hazardous waste refers to anything that poses potential risks. If you’re renovating your property, you should think about the types of materials that will need to be stored in your skip. You’d be surprised what’s classed as hazardous, so be sure to consider the following:

  • Acids
  • Aerosols
  • Alkalis
  • Asbestos
  • Batteries
  • Gas Cylinders
  • Oil
  • Paints
  • Pesticides
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Plasterboard
  • Solvents
  • Tyres

Why can’t Hazardous Waste go inside Skips?

Skip hire Preston is designed to offer a suitable alternative for taking waste to the landfill site, however, it isn’t suitable for hazardous materials. Reasons why our domestic skips aren’t suitable include the fact that such items can pose threat to human, animal and environmental health. Any skips that are overloaded with hazardous materials can put our fleet drivers at risk of injuring themselves and your skip hire Preston will not meet the requirements provided by the Environment Agency.

Although businesses generally produce more hazardous waste, this isn’t to suggest that domestic projects don’t generate any! This type of waste is easy enough to identify and should be carefully removed.

To dispose of hazardous waste, you can either take it to be recycled at the tipping facility yourself or you can arrange for an expert to collect it from your premises. The recycling centre has facilities that are dedicated to car battery recycling, domestic chemicals and electricals, as well as household appliances.

Electrical Waste

Electrical waste is a form of hazardous waste that requires careful consideration when it comes to disposal. Any electricals need to be transported to the recycling centre if they are to be disposed of in an environmentally friendly fashion.

To avoid any dangerous consequences, electrical waste needs to be handled carefully. Electrical waste can be found in various everyday items, so be sure to double check what you are throwing inside the skips that we offer for skip hire Leyland!

We can arrange to collect any large bulky materials that will take up too much space inside your skip, allowing you to get the most out of your skip hire Leyland. The harmful chemicals found in electricals is the main reason why this type of waste cannot be mixed with general waste.

Types of Electrical Hazardous Waste.

If you’re not entirely sure what’s classified as hazardous within your domestic property; we can help!

Any of the items listed below are electricals that should not be thrown inside your skip…

  • Cooker
  • Dishwasher
  • Freezer
  • Fridge
  • Microwave
  • Radio

WEEE Regulations.

To make sure that you benefit from skip hire that’s affordable, we highly recommend taking into consideration the regulations of WEEE.

Covering household appliances, IT and telecommunication equipment and consumer devices, these regulations are precise, making it clear which items are prohibited from the skips provided by Lostock Skip Hire!

Choosing to ignore these regulations and disposing of electrical and hazardous waste inside your skip will leave you wide open to expensive fines and penalties. Rather than illegally filling your skip, why not donate or recycle your unwanted waste?

Recycling.

Here at Lostock Skip Hire, we aim to recycle as much as possible, working towards a sustainable environment.

With 1 million tonnes of electrical waste generated year on year, the need to recycle is quickly on the increase! Our waste disposal services are delivered to put less pressure on the landfill site, potentially preserving the planet for longer.

Jon C.
Lucy was so helpful in choosing a skip and the whole process was very quick and easy from start to finish. We had previously heard some stories from friends where other skip companies let them down on the pickup date, leaving them blocked in on their driveways, but Lucy reassured me of the pick up time and did not let me down. Everything went as planned and was a smooth process from start to finish. The price was decent for a 4 yard skip and the gentleman who dropped it off was very clear on what could be in the skip too. Thankyou very much!!read more

Would highly recommended this skip company. Was in desperate need of a skip at short notice due to drainage problems and this company worked to re-jiggle the days diary to get one to me the same day despite calling after 8am on a Saturday morning!! Saved me having piles of mess in my garden over bank holiday weekend... cannot thank you enough and will be using you again in the future. Good advice on skip sizes and prices too ☺read more

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
