Why Skip Hire is Environmentally Friendly

Here at PWM Skip Hire, we believe that waste disposal is a process that shouldn’t affect the environment. After all, we are responsible for the preservation of our planet which means that polluting our water sources and damaging our ecosystem is going to have long-lasting and potentially irreversible repercussions that the next generation will have to contend with. As a result, our skip hire service strives for an environmentally friendly solution to waste disposal. Read on as we go over three reason why it can be considered an eco-friendly option…

Which materials are suitable for skip disposal?

There are many rules and regulations regarding the materials that can and cannot be disposed of in a skip as it is vital that certain items are taken to a specialist facility. With this said, materials like wood, tiles, plaster, cardboard, garden waste and even heavy construction items like bricks, concrete and rubble can be placed in a skip because they are eligible for recycling.

What happens to skip waste once it is taken away?

Since the majority of permitted items that are placed in a skip can be recycled in some way, shape or form, it can be comforting for the client to know that very little materials end up in landfill. After all, the hire company collects a skip and takes it to recycling facility where the materials are categorised accordingly; they are then taken to another appropriate site and repurposed in the most effective way possible. In fact, the amount of skip waste that enters landfill has fallen by 5.4% per year since 2005.

Why do some items require specialist disposal?

Although the majority of materials are considered safe for skip disposal, there are several exceptions for hazardous and potentially dangerous items. For instance, asbestos, car tyres and fluorescent bulbs must be taken to a specialist recycling facility because they would otherwise end up in a landfill and contribute to the pollution problem that we are facing. In addition to this, asbestos is an incredibly dangerous fibre when inhaled and should always be dealt with by professionals.

When it comes to the longevity of our planet, it is important that we do not allow the government to cut corners. After all, landfill is an unreliable waste disposal solution that contributes to global warming on a grand scale and destroys the habitats of many animals in the process. Luckily, most skip hire companies are committed to eco-friendly waste disposal which is why the majority of materials are reused and recycled.
