Comparing the three options for waste disposal

Whatever project you have in mind, it is a good idea to think about waste disposal first. The last thing you want is to start building a pile of rubbish and not have anywhere for it to go. It can delay your project and even increase the risk of accidents and injuries. As one of the top names for skip hire in Stockton, we can provide a great solution.

Generally there are three options for waste disposal; skip hire, man with a van, and DIY. We want to compare each of them to see which is best.

Cost effectiveness

Skip hire StocktonThis is the most important factor for many people, but is also one of the hardest to compare. Skips can be a great option as you know the hire price up front and can look at additional fees for things like permits. The price of man with a van services can vary depending on your location and the volume of waste. But, you can save on permits. People often see DIY as the most cost effective, but you also need to think about fuel costs and other expenses such as cleaning your vehicle afterwards.


Skip hire services are very straightforward and efficient. You fill the skip and then the hire company takes it away. Man with a van can be even better if time is short because they can arrive, fill up, and leave the same day. DIY takes longer when you consider the time to load your vehicle, drive to a waste facility, unload, then drive back and repeat if necessary.

This is the case with most providers, ensuring your rubbish has the smallest impact on the environment. Professional man with a van providers should also be responsible with the waste.

DIY you are relying on the facility to dispose of everything, but likely more waste will go to landfill even if you separate properly.

What to choose?
