How to Use a Skip to Dispose of Construction Waste

A large-scale project requires a reliable method of waste disposal on hand in order to create a safe working environment and ensure that all tasks are carried out in accordance with the pre-specified timeframe. After all, time is money on a building site! Here at PWM Skip Hire, we know how crucial it is to have a reliable on-site waste disposal service which is why we strive to ensure that our skips are as versatile as possible. Read on as we go over how they can be utilised within the construction industry…

Project Size

The first thing to take into consideration at the start of a construction project is how large it is going to be as this will help you assess the amount of debris that the work will create. After all, a kitchen or bathroom renovation is quite different from a house extension. A smaller project can still be specified as a form of construction, but you may not need to hire a grab wagon to dispose of the waste safely,  and this can save you splashing out on unnecessary expenses.

Type of Waste

Another aspect of construction that many project managers tend to forget about is what the waste itself will consist of. After all, skip hire is quite strict about the materials that it does and does not accept. Luckily, the vast majority of construction materials like soil, rubble, bricks, wood, concrete and even aggregate can be safely placed inside of a skip. With this said, you should always try to make a rough estimate of the amount of waste in order to determine the most suitable skip size to hire.


Sometimes a skip may require a permit from the local council in order to be legally utilised, however this is only usually a requirement if it is going to be placed onto public land such as a roadside. Since most construction sites are classified as private property, the majority of projects do not require you to obtain a permit. With this said, it may be in your best interest to enquire about the rules in your local area to make sure.

No matter how big or small your project is, the team here at PWM Skip Hire have the skills and experience to handle it. After all, our family run business has been trading for many years!
