Skip Hire Top Tips

Click To Enlarge

Hiring and using a skip can be a tricky business. There are plenty of companies and skips to choose from, so how do you know what you need?

Here at Central Waste (UK) Ltd, we like to help, that's why we want to give you a few top tips.

Check your supplier

With all of the skip companies out there, it can be hard to choose one. First of all, check that the company you use is registered and a licenced waste carrier. This can be done by checking the Environment Agency lists, or just on your chosen company's website. You don't want to be caught out by those fly tippers!

Check the terms of hire

Skip companies differ in what they offer their customers. Some may offer a great rate but the hire is only for one week, others may cost a little more, but the hire is for as long as you need it. Of course these are just a couple of examples. The easiest thing to do is to check the terms when you are researching, and of course when you hire the skip.

Find out what can go in!

Most skip companies have similar rules on this... i.e. nothing hazardous can be placed in the skip. However, any skip hire company can reel off a list of what is and isn't allowed in the skip at any time, so be sure to find out.
The last thing anybody wants is a skip full of hazardous/uncompliant waste sat around on their job or property, and the easiest way to avoid this is to check what's allowed before hand.

Pack it right

Everybody likes to get their money's worth. That's why there are so many overloaded skips around! However, overloaded skips may be subject to overload charges or may not be picked up at all until the excess waste is removed.
The easiest way to avoid this is to ensure the skip is filled only to the top (the level fill line) and not above. Greedy boards (doors or sheet wood used to extend the top of the skip) are not allowed and make it very difficult to unload excess waste should you need to.
Try packing the big items first and then filling in the gaps with the little bits to pack it tight!

Hopefully these top tips help to avoid any potential issues, but if you need any more information then give us a call!
