Here at PWM Skip Hire, we are committed to providing a customer-focused service. After all, people hire a skip in order to dispose of their waste in a simple and effective manner and it is our responsibility to ensure that this happens as smoothly as possible. With this said, many of our clients have never leased a skip and we want to ensure that everybody stays in the loop. Read on as we go through a few things that you might not know about hiring a skip…
What Permits are Required to Use a Skip?
When a skip is hired, it is always important to think ahead about where it is going to be placed for the duration of the lease. After all, skips that are located on public property like a road-side require a permit to be purchased from the local council. Luckily, this process couldn’t be easier and usually takes two weeks to complete from the date of application. In fact, some skip hire companies will even complete the paperwork for you.
What Materials Can Be Put In a Skip?
There are some materials that are not permitted to be disposed off in a skip and the hire company is within its right to refuse to pick up a skip that has been filled with unsuitable materials. As a result, it is important that a client understands which materials are allowed and which are not. For example, recyclable materials like wood, metal and some plastics are allowed whereas potentially dangerous materials like asbestos, batteries and plasterboard are not allowed.
What Sizes of Skip Are Available?
Choosing the right skip for your project is an important decision and it all comes down to the type of job you are going to be carrying out and the amount of waste you expect to accumulate. Luckily, most skip hire companies offer a variety of different skip sizes to choose from in order to ensure that you get the most suitable, and most affordable, return on your investment. For first time skip hires, it is always best to talk to an expert if you are unsure which skip size is most appropriate for your requirements.
Although the skip hire industry only became popular during the late 60s, it doesn’t show any sign of slowing down yet. In fact, we believe that more and more people are starting to invest in skip hire for both large projects, like a home renovation, and small projects, like shed decluttering.
