When it comes to skip hire, it's important to know what can and cannot be put in a skip. Here's a rundown of the items you can put in a skip:
General waste includes common household items, such as cardboard, paper, plastic, wood, furniture, clothes, and toys. All of these items can be put in a skip and disposed of safely.
Green waste includes garden waste, such as grass clippings, leaves, branches, and tree stumps. All of these items can be put in a skip, but it's worth noting that some skip hire companies charge extra for garden waste due to the additional weight.
Construction waste includes materials such as bricks, concrete, rubble, tiles, and plasterboard. These items are acceptable for disposal in a skip but it's important to make sure that the skip is not overloaded with heavy items.
Commercial waste includes items such as office furniture, paper, cardboard, and packaging materials. These items can be put in a skip, but it's important to check with your skip hire company to see if any special requirements are needed for the safe disposal of commercial waste.
Hazardous waste includes items such as paint, batteries, chemicals, asbestos, and electrical equipment. These items cannot be put in a skip and require special handling and disposal. If you need to dispose of hazardous waste, make sure to consult with your local council or a licensed waste disposal company.
Now that we know what can be put in a skip, let's take a look at what cannot be put in a skip. Skip hire companies have strict guidelines when it comes to waste disposal, and there are some items that are not allowed in skips due to safety and environmental concerns. These items include:
Electrical equipment such as TVs, computers, and fridges cannot be put in a skip. These items contain hazardous substances and require special handling and disposal.
Batteries of all kinds should never be put in a skip, as they contain hazardous substances that can harm the environment.
Asbestos is a hazardous material that requires special handling and disposal. It's important to consult with a licensed waste disposal company if you need to dispose of asbestos.
Chemicals such as paint, oil, and cleaning products are not allowed in skips. These items can react with other materials in the skip and cause hazardous situations.
Medical waste should never be put in a skip. This includes items such as needles, syringes, and medical equipment. Consult with your local council or a licensed waste disposal company if you need to dispose of medical waste.
In conclusion, skip hire is a convenient and affordable way to safely dispose of waste. At Skip Hire Surrey, we provide skips of all sizes to accommodate all types of waste, from general waste to construction waste. It's important to know what can and cannot be put in a skip, and to follow the guidelines set by your skip hire company.
