Making multiple trips to the dump or recycling facilities is time-consuming and it can leave your car in a right old state. The main benefit to hiring a skip is convenience.
A skip hire company will deliver your skip to the desired location, arranging any permits where necessary, and collect it once it’s been filled. All you need to do is work out where you would like it placed, and when you want it delivered.
Multiple trips to the dump involve wasting unnecessary time and money, especially with the rising cost of petrol. However, by hiring a skip you won’t have to pay a penny extra for transport as that’s built into the cost of hiring a skip.
What’s more, with a range of skip sizes to choose from you will only pay for the size that you need, making it a cost-effective solution.
All reputable skip hire companies have a range of skip sizes on offer so their service can be tailored to your exact requirements. Skips are classified according to the volume of waste they hold, which is measured in cubic yards.
They range from a mini skip for light domestic use that holds 2 cubic yards of waste (approx. 20-30 bin bags of rubbish) to a maxi skip for large house clearances that holds 16 cubic yards (or 140-160 bin bags of rubbish). The average skip size is a builder’s skip, which is 8 cubic yards (or 60-80 bin bags of rubbish).
Correct Disposal of Waste
Hiring a man with a van to dispose of your waste may sound like a good idea, but legally waste is your responsibility so if that man decides to fly-tip your waste you will be liable for a huge fine. By choosing a reputable skip hire company you can rest assured that your waste will be dealt with professionally, and your reputation, and bank balance, will remain intact.
Finally, skip hire companies are responsible environmentalists. Your waste will be transported to a processing plant where it will be sorted, with as much as 90% being recycled.
