One of the most frequently asked questions we receive from our clients is, "What can I put in a hired skip in Hertfordshire?" Here are some of the things that you can put in a skip hired from Skip Hire Hertfordshire.
Before we delve into the items that you can put in a skip, it's good to understand the types of skips available. Skips come in different sizes and are designed to cater to different waste disposal needs. Below are the types of skips that we offer at Skip Hire Hertfordshire:
The mini skip is the smallest skip available and is perfect for small domestic projects. It can hold up to 25 bin bags of waste, and it's compact size means it can be easily placed in a restricted space.
Builder's skip is the most commonly used skip, particularly for construction works. It can accommodate 70 bin bags of waste and is ideal for large-scale projects.
Maxi skip is ideal for more significant projects or commercial waste. It can hold up to 140 bin bags.
For mega projects that generate a lot of waste, roll-on-roll-off skips are what you need. They come in various sizes, ranging from 20 cubic yards to 40 cubic yards.
Skip Hire Hertfordshire has various categories of waste that we can legally dispose of in our landfills. Our skips are capable of handling all kinds of waste, ranging from green waste, mixed waste, construction waste, and hazardous materials.
General waste refers to everyday household waste like food containers, discarded plastics, clothes, and paper. It's the most common type of waste that you can put in a skip, and it's also one of the cheapest ways to dispose of it.
Green waste refers to garden waste like grass, leaves, and tree branches. It's essential to segregate it, so it's easier to recycle. By having a separate container for green waste, we can compost it rather than sending it to a landfill.
Construction waste refers to materials used during construction projects like bricks, cement, and rubble. These types of waste can fill up a skip quickly, so it's important to have a plan of action to prevent overspending.
Hazardous waste refers to materials that are harmful and can cause serious environmental pollution. Examples include asbestos, batteries, fluorescent bulbs, and chemicals. It's important to note that you cannot put hazardous waste with any other type of waste. For the safety of our staff and the environment, we have strict procedures in place for hazardous waste collection.
There are some items that are prohibited by law from being disposed of in a skip. These items include:
It's important to note that if any of the prohibited items are found in the skip that we have hired out to you, we will refuse to collect the skip until the item has been removed.
To make the most out of your skip hire, it's important to know how to pack the skip effectively. It's essential to use the space in the skip efficiently to save money and reduce the number of trips that we take to the landfill.
