What happens to the waste in skips?

What happens to the waste in skips

Skip hire Bolton is a great way to remove waste from your domestic or commercial property, and here at Lostock Skips, we make sure that all materials are disposed of correctly.

If you’re curious what happens when skips are collected from your premises once they’re full, let us explain.

  1. Sorting rubbish

The first thing we do when we collect skips is transport them on the back of our reliable fleets to the nearest sorting facility. Upon arrival, all contents will undergo proper sorting – identifying large, bulky materials, recyclables and other items – ensuring they are disposed of correctly.

With skip hire Bolton, we offer a zero to landfill waste management scheme, meaning that we reduce the amount of waste that’s sent to landfill and recycle 80-90% of all items stored inside skips.

  1. Waste treatment

After sorting waste from domestic skips, we then find an appropriate treatment for waste – be it:

  • Screening
  • Shredding
  • Compacting

Once materials have been treated, they are transferred to a new container, ready to be taken to treatment and recycling facilities in the local area for further processing.

  1. Processing

To ensure efficient disposal, all materials generated from skip hire Bolton are processed and the material type can dictate the processing procedure. Some materials, like wooden furniture, are processed to create new products, whilst others, like trees and grass cuttings, are mixed with other biodegradable materials to make compost for garden projects.

Hardcore materials can also be crushed and later used in construction projects and scrap metals can be processed to meet global trading demands.

When rubbish is processed, it reduces our carbon footprint – contributing less to the greenhouse effect and global warming – allowing us to utilise fewer raw materials.

Brilliant service from Adam today with a skip. I have worked on the industry for over 20 years and this has been the easiest skip company I have worked with. They dropped it off when said and picked it up with a time we discussed. Thank you Adam. I will definitely be using you again.

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
