Do’s and Don’ts to skip hire.

Getting the most out of your skip hire in Wigan is simple. Skip hire regulations are to be followed if you’re to stay clear of any fines or penalties. Keeping prohibited items out of your skip will not only allow you to maximise the storage space you have inside your skip but will also make your skip hire Wigan more affordable.

Here’s what can be thrown inside our skips:

  • Rubble
  • Soil
  • Wood
  • Metal
  • Plastic
  • Domestic waste
  • Furniture
  • Cardboard

… and here’s what cannot:

  • Electricals
  • Hazardous waste
  • Fluorescent tubes
  • Tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Gas cylinders
  • Medical waste

Some materials need to be kept separate from the general waste stored inside your skip. This applies for any plasterboard and gypsum materials because they require careful disposal.

Limitations to skip hire.

The team at Adlington Skip Hire make sure that all waste disposal requirements are met. When choosing skip hire Preston you need to think about where your skip can be stored and what you can dispose of inside it.

Skips that are left on the road will require a skip hire permit. To obtain a permit, we can make a visit to your local authority and acquire the necessary documentation to allow you to legally dispose of your waste.

Another limitation to skip hire is accessibility. Make sure that there is sufficient room for our heavy fleets to manoeuvre. Although skips tend to be delivered to your garden or driveway, they can also be placed on the road outside your property- depending on which works best for you.

Money-saving skip hire.

Skip hire in Preston is just one way that you can save money. Filling your skip with reusable materials like furniture may seem like the best thing to do, however, these tend to be large and bulky, essentially taking up too much space within your skip.

Instead of throwing reusable items in your skip, why not donate them to charities? In doing so, you have the opportunity to reduce the size of your skip and save valuable space, allowing you to fit more in.

The cost of our skip hire is dependent on the size of your skip, hence why it’s so important that you order the right one. A skip that’s too big will not be filled and you would’ve been better ordering a smaller one, where a skip that’s too small will leave you with excess material that cannot fit in your skip- meaning you’ll need to pay for it to be removed or order a new skip.

Skip hire tips.

Hiring a skip can provide countless benefits if you choose wisely. To keep your skip hire costs to a minimum, don’t dispose of items that are prohibited, we recommend keeping these separate so that they can be disposed of effectively.

Remember that you are not only responsible for the skip but for the contents found inside too. If your skip is left on the road overnight, you need to be aware of opportunistic fly-tippers and always check what’s inside your skip.
