The Do’s and Don’ts to skip hire

Having a brief understanding of how skip hire works allows you to remove waste effectively, ensuring that all rules and regulations are taken into careful consideration. Here at Lostock Skip Hire, we are the specialists when it comes to skip hire, so if there’s anything that you’re not entirely sure about or something that is confusing you, you can rest assured that you’re in capable hands!

At Lostock Skips, we are always on hand to help you to determine which skip suits your demands best and which is guaranteed to match your budget requirements. Skip Hire Chorley is just one of the services that we provide; and it’s often the preferred choice of those who are looking to dispose of waste in a way that’s quick, easy and affordable.

Skip Hire Chorley provides a simple solution for waste disposal, however, there are several legislations in place that can help you to fulfil your Duty of Care.

To get the most out of your Skip Hire Chorley, it’s essential that you:

  • Deal with hazardous waste correctly
  • Use the services of a licensed waste carrier
  • Make sure that waste is collected, recycled, recovered and disposed of appropriately
  • Dispose of waste responsibly

Here’s your checklist for effective skip hire:

  • Acquire paperwork before you start.

When it comes to Skip Hire Leyland, there are several factors that you need to be mindful of; one of these being the location of your skip. If your skip is to be left on the road overnight, you’re going to need to obtain a permit from the local authority to legalise your Skip Hire Leyland.

When applying for the permit, the application form requires details concerning your name, address and delivery and collection date. To make it easier for you, we can obtain the permit for your Skip Hire Leyland, on your behalf, and include the cost within the markup price.

  • Choose the right skip.

Each of the skips available for Skip Hire Bolton is measured in cubic yards and suitable for all kinds of projects. Whether you’re looking for a domestic skip for your project or something a little bigger, you’re sure to find what you need at Lostock Skips!

The domestic skips for Skip Hire Bolton start from as small as 2-cubic yards and range right the way up to 16-cubic yards, making it inevitable for you to find a suitable skip size.

For projects that are expecting to produce immense volumes of waste, including bulky materials and construction waste, you cannot go wrong with a commercial skip! The commercial skips are also provided for Skip Hire Bolton and are available all the way up to 40-cubic yards.

  • Check accessibility and space.

With Skip Hire Preston, your skip needs to be stored somewhere that’s not only easy enough for you to fill with waste but somewhere that offers easy access for the large loading vehicles that we use to deliver and collect skips from properties.

The last thing that you want your Skip Hire Preston to do is to cause upset amongst your neighbours! Make sure that you inform your neighbours about the work that you plan to undertake- it’s the most courteous thing to do!

Most people tend to have skips delivered to their driveway to eliminate the risk of fly-tippers illegally disposing of their waste. If this isn’t possible, you need to make sure that your skip is positioned on the road in front of your property but without restricting your neighbour’s access or driveways.

  • Recycle as much waste as possible.

We can help you to dispose of waste in a way that’s environmentally friendly, take Skip Hire Preston for instance. When you hire a skip, you leave the handling and disposal to our team of experts, saving you the time and effort.

In choosing skip hire, you can essentially reduce the volume of waste that’s sent to the landfill site because we aim to recycle between 80 and 90% of the materials that are found in skips.

  • Don’t rush into anything.

If you’re new to skip hire, you need to make sure that you take your time to choose the right waste disposal solution. Don’t think that you need to use the services provided by the first skip hire company that you find! Just because they appear to be offering you an unbeatable deal, this isn’t to say that there aren’t any hidden fees!

  • Avoid overloading your skip.

Choosing to take no notice of skip hire regulations isn’t going to save you money or enhance safety on site. To prevent the occurrence of dangerous consequences, you need to be mindful of the maximum fill level (which should be clearly indicated on the skip). As soon as your skip is full, you need to contact the skip hire company and arrange a suitable time for them to collect it from your property.

Overloading your skip will make it impossible for loading vehicles to lift your skip onto the back of the fleet, meaning you’ll need to hire a second skip to store the excess materials or you may be charged to have it removed.

Don’t be tempted to stack waste up inside your skip, this will reduce the risk of injury too.

  • Don’t have skip fires.

Did you know that it’s illegal to use the waste inside your skip to start fires? We don’t provide Skip Hire Wigan for you to burn unwanted materials yourself, our skips are offered as a convenient solution for storing and disposing of waste items.

Skip fires also increase the rate of combustion and you can expect to be held responsible for skip replacements and repairs.

  • Keep hazardous waste out.

Hazardous waste shouldn’t be mixed with inert materials or general waste, so if you’re looking for Skip Hire Wigan, don’t be tempted to mix potentially dangerous materials with the rest of the waste stored inside your skip.

Anyone who is caught disposing of waste incorrectly can expect to be handed an expensive fine, so it’s better to refresh your memory of what can and cannot be thrown inside your skip; consider the following:

  • Asbestos
  • Tv’s
  • Computers
  • Paint
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Plasterboard
  • Medical Waste
  • Solvents
  • Oil
  • Petrol
  • Diesel
  • Explosives

Skip Hire Wigan is a fantastic solution for getting rid of waste efficiently. Should you need to know more about the services that we provide at Lostock Skips, don’t hesitate to call us on 01204 698153 today!
