What is skip hire?
Skip hire is the process of hiring a skip for your rubbish removal needs. There is a range of different skip sizes available, from small and medium-sized skips right up to large, oversized skips. The size of the skip you need will depend on how much rubbish you have in it and where you want it taken.
What’s the Difference Between Skip Hire and Rubbish Removal Services?
There are many differences between skip hire and rubbish collection or removal. When you hire a skip, you can fill your skip with waste over time, with different types of waste. On the other hand, rubbish removal services generally collect rubbish at one specific time, on a given date. They also remove all types of rubbish, including garden debris, building materials, furniture, appliances, etc.
Why Choose Skip Hire Over Rubbish Collection?
If you have a lot of rubbish to dispose of, then skip hire might be the best option for you. Here are some reasons why:
Skip Hire Is Eco-Friendly
When you hire a skip, there is no need to worry about transporting heavy loads of rubbish to a landfill or incinerator. Instead, you simply load your skip with the rubbish, drive away, drop off the skip somewhere else, and leave! This makes skip hire eco-friendly. It reduces the amount of fuel used and emissions released into the atmosphere. It also helps reduce the number of trucks needed to transport the rubbish to landfill sites.
Skip Hire Is Cost-Effective
Skip hire is cheaper than rubbish collection. As long as you have enough space in your skip, skip hiring costs less than rubbish removal. In addition, skip hire is more cost-effective than a rubbish collection because you only pay for the volume of rubbish you actually put into the skip. For example, if you use a 20 cubic metre skip, you only pay for the actual weight of the rubbish you put inside.
Skip Hire Provides Flexibility
With skip hire, you can choose when to start collecting your rubbish. You can decide when you want to get rid of the rubbish, so you don’t have to wait until a certain day. You can even schedule multiple pick-ups if you want to make sure everything gets collected. Skips are usually delivered to your home within 24 hours of booking, so you won’t have to worry about missing a scheduled pick-up.
Skip Hire Allows You To Handle Your Waste Properly
With skip hire, you can dispose of your rubbish in the most environmentally friendly way possible. You can fill your skip with any type of waste, from food waste to construction waste. The important thing is that you dispose of your waste responsibly. Remember, if you do not follow the correct procedures, you could break environmental laws.
Skip Hire Makes Clean Up Easy
One of the biggest problems associated with rubbish collection is that it takes time and effort to clean up after a large rubbish collection. With skip hire, however, this problem disappears. Once you finish loading your skip, you just need to empty the contents into another location. There is no need to lift heavy items or dig through piles of rubbish.
Skip Hire Helps Reduce Pollution
The environment has become very polluted over the years. Many people believe that pollution is caused by industrial activities such as manufacturing factories and power plants. However, the truth is that the majority of pollution comes from households. Households are responsible for producing around 40% of all greenhouse gas emissions. According to some studies, household waste accounts for up to 70% of all solid waste produced in Australia. Skip hiring allows you to keep your household waste out of landfills and incinerators. When you use skip hire instead of rubbish collection, you help protect our environment.
What is proper waste disposal?
Proper waste disposal means that you dispose of your rubbish properly by taking it to an approved site such as a landfill. This is because landfills are designed to handle an organic matter like food waste and household garbage, but they cannot deal with non-organic material like metals, glass, paper, plastics, chemicals, batteries, tires, electronic equipment, medical waste, hazardous waste, etc. Therefore, if you do not take your rubbish to a suitable place, you may be breaking environmental laws. If you are unsure whether what you are disposing of is considered ‘proper waste’, ask a local council office or contact your local recycling centre.
What can’t I put in a skip?
You can load almost everything into a skip. It is important to remember that there are restrictions on certain items. For example, you must ensure that no flammable materials are loaded into a skip. Flammable wastes include gasoline, oil, paint thinner, kerosene, turpentine, solvents, and other petroleum products. Other items that you can’t load into a skip include asbestos, lead, mercury, radioactive waste, biological waste, and toxic waste. Contact your local council or recycling centre to find out more information.
