More about Skip Hire
A skip hire is an open top heavy duty metal container that you can hire and fill up with non-hazardous waste. Hiring them is convenient because the service will ensure that the skip is delivered to your location. They will also collect the container and the waste when you have filled it. The waste is not dumped collectively, it will be sorted and what can be recycled will be recycled all part of the hire service. Skips for hire are available in different sizes in case you thought you will be stuck with a giant skip for a small premise. Smaller ones are ideal to use with garden waste, they are also the best where you do not have a lot of space to spare. If you are doing some renovations to your premise then a mid-range skip will work well for you.W ith this one, however, you will need the same space as that of parking a car. Apart from that you will need sufficient space to access the skip and safely dump the waste. The space should also be big enough for the lorry to pick and deliver the skip.
Larger skips will generally have higher sidewalls that enable them to hold larger amounts of waste. A ramp will be needed to enable people dump the waste inside the container. If you do not have the space to place a larger skip in your compound you can place it on the roadway provided you have the go ahead by the local authorities and the company that you have hired the skip from. You will have to apply for such permits before you have hired the skips.
You will not always be guaranteed of success with the permits especially if your area has a high demand for parking and if the road width is not sufficient. If you have to place it on grass you will be required to take care of the damage that comes with the skip after its work has been completed. It's advisable to consult with the companies that you are hiring from about where you are going to place the skip. Some companies will actually obtain the permit on your behalf.
Before getting into a contract with a company that deals with the transportation of waste ensure that they are registered with an environmental agency. You should also check to see that the company is compliant with waste management guidelines and regulations. Safe disposal is key so make sure that you do not have hazardous waste concealed with the general non-hazardous.
