Most of us will have seen skips in use as we travel around the roads near our homes but probably won’t ever have used one. Which is a shame – because domestic skips have far more uses than simply collecting builder’s waste for disposal.
The traditional skip is far more versatile than we give it credit for, so if you would like to see how you could benefit from hiring a skip for a week or two, read on to learn more.
You Will Save
Save what? Time and money. Outside of construction projects, the most common reason for hiring a skip is to assist in the disposal of waste; whether household or otherwise. Filling black bags with rubbish and then taking them to your nearest waste depot for recycling is a time consuming exercise. Not only that, but consider the additional wear and tear on your vehicle as you make return trips, backwards and forwards, your car loaded to the brim.
If you weren’t planning on disposing of your waste yourself, you would have had to hire someone to take it away for you which is never cheap. The benefit of skip hire is that the recycling and disposal fee is included in your hire charge.
It May Keep You Safe
Collecting and recycling rubbish can be risky business, especially if you’re disposing of items which could be considered hazardous or dangerous. This may include a number of sharp objects as well as objects containing chemicals.
For this reason, making used of licensed waste disposal could be a far safer option. Simply fill your skip as directed by your hire company, at which they will come and collect it for you when you’re ready. You won’t even have to leave the comfort of your home.
Protect the Environment
Skip hire companies are bound by the strictest of recycling laws and regulations, ensuring that they comply with best practice in relation to waste disposal and recycling. This essentially means that any items containing harmful gases such as refrigerators will be disposed of in an environmentally efficient manner.
The benefit of this is that you can transfer your responsibilities to a third party, saving you the hassle of having to find an appropriate recycling centre.
Skips Come in Several Different Sizes
Although most households will be able to make do with a mini skip, you can go much larger if required. The benefit to this is that you’ll be able to recycle for much longer before having to have it emptied and returned to you.
What you should be mindful of is that certain types of waste won’t be suitable for skips over a certain size due to health and safety.
Find Your Local Skip Hire Company
All that is left for you to do is find a skip company local to you. If you happen to live in South Yorkshire, Doncaster Skip Hire is one such company but do carry out your research into who might be suitable for you. Simply perform a web search or consult a local directory.
After your first successful skip hire, you will never look back as you experience the benefits in waste disposal efficiency.
