A skip is essentially a large container that can be hired for a certain period of time. This container is delivered to your doorstep, and once you have filled it with the waste, it is collected by our team and taken to the appropriate waste disposal facility. A skip provides a convenient and cost-effective way of disposing of large volumes of waste. It saves you the hassle of making multiple trips to the local dump or recycling center.
While a skip may seem like an easy solution for disposing of large volumes of waste, not all types of waste can be safely put in a skip. Here is a rundown of what you can and cannot dispose of in a skip:
General Household Waste - This includes items such as plastic, paper, cardboard, wood, and textiles.
Garden Waste - This includes leaves, twigs, branches, and grass clippings.
Construction and Demolition Waste - This includes materials such as brick, rubble, concrete, and soil.
Furniture and Household Appliances - This includes sofas, armchairs, mattresses, and white goods such as fridges and washing machines.
Inert Waste - This includes materials such as sand, gravel, and stones.
Hazardous Waste - This includes chemicals, asbestos, batteries, and electrical equipment.
Medical Waste - This includes needles, syringes, and medicines.
Biological Waste - This includes animal carcasses, food waste, and clinical waste.
Liquids - This includes paints, oils, and solvents.
Electrical and Electronic Equipment - This includes TVs, computers, and other appliances that have an electric plug.
Once you have hired a skip from Skip Hire Worcestershire, the next step is to fill it with items you want to dispose of. Here are some tips on how to pack a skip safely and effectively:
Position the Skip - Ensure that the skip is placed on a level and stable surface. This will prevent it from tipping over or causing damage to your property.
Fill the Skip Evenly - Start by placing larger and heavier items at the bottom of the skip. Then fill in the gaps with smaller and lighter items. Make sure that the waste is evenly distributed throughout the skip.
Do Not Overfill - When filling the skip, ensure that the waste is not overflowing above the sides. This is because an overloaded skip is both unsafe and illegal.
Use a Tarpaulin - Cover the skip with a tarpaulin or sheet to prevent debris from blowing out of the skip.
