Things To Consider When You Book A Skip Online
Before you book a skip online, it’s important to know exactly what materials you want to go in that skip and how much of the waste there will be.
This is because you don’t want to end up in a situation where you have ordered a skip you can’t use, or you find you have to buy two skips, when you could have got a larger one for less money.
Not only will knowing exactly how much you have to go in the skip save you money, but, having a skip that’s the right size will help you to avoid any hold ups in your project if you have to wait for the old one to be taken away and the new one to arrive.
You can book a skip online in a variety of sizes, from a two yard mini skip (big enough to take around 40 black bin bags and suitable for low volume waste clearance) to a 12 yard skip (which can take around 240 black bags full of rubbish and is suitable for building site clearance, industrial premises or demolition sites).
Book A Skip Online With Safety In Mind
Another reason why you should know how much waste you will have before you book a skip online is because you can’t overfill a skip (this is a legal requirement). The capacity of a skip is based on it being level with the sides. Any waste which is placed in the skip above this level makes it unstable and unsafe – which means it is illegal for us to take on the road.
In addition to knowing how much volume of waste you want to put in your skip, you should also check if the waste itself is OK to go in a skip. For example, items which can’t go into a skip include the following:
- Paints, solvents and fuel
- Fridges and freezers
- Clinical, medical or chemical waste
- Asbestos or asbestos type sheeting
- Flares or fireworks
These items must be disposed of in a specific way, because of the negative impact that incorrect disposal of them can have on the environment, not to mention public health and safety. You can book a skip online for all sorts of reasons, such as house clearances, construction projects or garden renovations – but check before you do so that your waste will be suitable for a skip.
