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.

I ordered a large skip and had to change the date I needed it at short notice. When I contacted the office they did this for me with no fuss at all and the skip turned up on time. Very professional and helpful service.
