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.

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

I hired an 8 yard skip. Was highly surprised with how cheap the skip was. The woman I spoke to on the phone was very polite and informative. The skip was delivered within the time slot I was given, the driver was also very polite. I rang to arrange collection and the skip was collected with no issues. Highly recommend Lostock Skip Hire and will be using them again in the near future.read more

I needed three skips over a couple of months to help with a house renovation. Felt a bit daunted by the number of skip companies out there, however I plumped for Lostock Skips. Glad I did! Faultless service, timely delivery of skips, friendly drivers and very competitive prices. The lady who booked my skips was always efficient. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.read more

I have to say that I was delighted with the service I received from Lostock Skip Hire, from the very first call to the condition of the skip, the delivery and placing, it seemed nothing was too much trouble to anyone in the business. Customer service is excellent, the driver was very understanding and accommodating when required to unload in a tight space, a very welcome change from the usual, how should I say, less than helpful service on can often get from a skip hire company.Special thanks to Lucy for helping me with my late change of mind, she couldn’t have done more to make sure everything was provided as required.Give them a try, you will not regret it Markread more
