We get lots of calls asking why skip hire prices more in some areas and less in others. There are a lot of reasons for this:
Transport costs – If you live in the middle of nowhere, it will cost you more than if you live in a bustling metropolis, because the depot will more often than not be situated near or in a city or town.
Landfill tax – Every April, the government levy a tax on landfill costs. Over the past few years, we’ve seen tax rises of up to 33%. This is part of a government initiative to promote recycling.
Wages – for obvious reasons!
Of course, there’s insurance costs, the hire of equipment to sort waste, the cost of the land to store waste, costs of skips. we could go on….but we think you get the picture.
Always mistrust ads that claim ‘cheap skip hire’ … we’ll explain why tomorrow!
