If you’re to get more out of your skip hire Chorley, there are several things to take into consideration, including the following:

  • Plan your project

Deciding to hire a skip will make it easier for you to dispose of waste.

It’s better to plan ahead, making sure that you obtain the permits for your skip hire Chorley prior to starting your project. Order the right sized skip for the volume of waste you expect to be generated and have the waste ready to dispose of.

As well as this, try to recycle as much as you can and donate items that are still usable – this will instantly free up space inside your skip.

  • Book the right skip

Ordering the wrong skip for your skip hire Bolton will leave you paying more than you need to. If you order a skip that is too small, a second skip will be required to ensure that you have sufficient space to store the excess materials that cannot fit.

On the other hand, selecting a skip that is too big will mean that you pay for the fresh air inside your skip.

  • Strategically load waste

When it comes to skip hire Preston, there is an art to loading waste – allowing you to maximise the space available and ensure that there are no gaps.

Another way to get more out of your skip hire Preston is to saw or break up awkwardly shaped items. Doing this will prevent you from filling your skip too quickly and will allow you to squeeze more in.

The best thing to do is to start with heavy items at the bottom of the skip and throw lighter materials in last – making sure that there is no empty space inside the skip.

  • Don’t overload it

Here at Lostock Skips, we only accept level loaded skips to ensure that there is no compromise to health and safety. Waste shouldn’t be falling out of the skips that we deliver for skip hire Wigan and it should be easy for us to lift them onto the back of our fleets.

Fines are issued to those who choose not to follow skip hire regulations and overload their skip regardless. In addition to fines, you’ll either need to order another skip or have the excess material collected, which costs you more in the long run.

Asbestos, batteries, chemicals, fridges, freezers, paint and TVs are all examples of items that are restricted from skip hire Wigan and should be disposed of carefully.

When we collect skips from your premises, we take them to be sorted thoroughly at the sorting facility- so don’t be tempted to hide it in the middle of your skip!
