little reminders of how to get the best skip hire experience

18 Oct 2012

When you’re trying to choose a skip hire firm to deal with your waste job, it’s good to remember what minor factors should be kept in mind. This way, when you get a really good service, they’ll exceed your expectations!

Around 17 thousand skips are hired each year in the UK for just domestic jobs alone. When searching for an appealing skip company, you won’t be able to tell whether or not they are the right for you until the job is done.

You’ll know a good skip hire service when you’ve experienced one. The good firms should consistently follow the Environment Agency regulations and possibly also have a membership with the Institute of Wastes Administration, who promote degree and raising specifications in waste management.

Another way of detecting good skip hire practice is by finding out what happens to the waste once you are done with it. Most skip hire companies now make an effort to recycle all the waste they can, leaving little to go to landfill.

You don’t want a skip firm who hinder the environment by fly-tipping. Fly-tipping costs local councils £2.5 thousand a year and it would be very bad practice for a skip company to get involved in this criminal activity!

When it comes to finding a service you can rely on, it’s good to keep a few things in mind. The drop-off and pick-up process of skip hire includes a lot of different elements in order to run smoothly. It’s always a good idea to liaise with the company and plan ahead.

Also, make sure you don’t overfill your skip, because if it’s overflowing with waste, by law it can’t be taken away. If in doubt hire a larger skip than you think you need, just in case.

Different firms practice different maintenance, so when you get a quote, find out what you’re paying for! With just a bit of preparation and research, your skip hire experience should go down a treat!
