Hazardous Waste and Skip Hire

When hiring a skip, you need to consider what materials will be stored inside your skip. On a building site, there’s likely to be an immense volume of waste that needs to be disposed of, however, not all materials can be thrown inside the skips that we supply, here at Adlington Skip Hire.

Our commercial skips for skip hire Chorley and skip hire Wigan are designed to accommodate all volumes of waste but cannot store certain materials, but why is this?

Hazardous waste requires careful disposal, and skip hire Chorley (or skip hire in any location for that matter) is not the solution! To comply with hazardous waste regulation laws, implemented in 2005, you need to ensure that your waste is disposed of safely, in an environmentally friendly fashion.

Hiring a skip is a relatively big deal; there are several factors that need to be taken into consideration, and here are just a few…

Maintaining safety standards.

Acidic and alkaline solutions?

If your business produces acidic waste or alkaline solutions, we advise you to keep these out of your skip! Although skip hire Preston allows you to maintain a safe environment, acidic and alkaline materials need to be kept separate.

Such materials can compromise the recyclability of the waste stored inside your skip, hence why you should avoid throwing these in. If you’re looking to dispose of acids or any other hazardous substances, special waste disposal is required.


Any building that’s affected by asbestos is often deemed “unsafe”, so it’s no surprise you want to eliminate this as soon as possible!

Fridges and freezers?

Here at Adlington Skips, we provide the commercial skips to accommodate any business, so if you’re expecting to produce large volumes of waste, you cannot go wrong with the skips we provide for skip hire Preston.

Although our commercial skips are much bigger than our domestic ones, they are not ideal for hazardous materials like fridges and freezers. These products need to be taken to the recycling centre or your local tipping facilities, where they can be carefully disposed of.

Waste oils?

If your business produces waste oils, you need to keep these out of your skip! Oils are classified as hazardous waste and need to be carefully recycled. Throwing flammable materials inside your skip is dangerous and can cause more damage than it’s worth. Any hazardous waste that’s found inside any commercial skip can leave you paying for the consequences.

Our commercial skips are provided as a convenient method for disposing of any waste that your business produces; however, hazardous materials need to be kept separate, otherwise you’ll be handed a fine for not adhering to skip hire laws!
