Take care with skip hire in Middlesbrough

Skip hire MiddlesbroughSkips offer a space-saving and easy solution for storing waste. But, there are a few things to remember to ensure they are being used safely. Ensure the space you select is completely clear of obstructions for the arrival of your skip. Be sure to give the driver clear instructions. Plus, make sure children and pets are kept away from the area as your skip is delivered and lowered. Once your skip has arrived, make sure that nobody can climb in, and never attempt to move it yourself.

Health and safety and environmental issues restrict the items that can be placed in skips. Electrical appliances such as fridge freezers, toasters and televisions need to be disposed of in another way. This also applies to batteries, which can be safely recycled at most supermarkets. Vehicle batteries are also unsuitable for skip disposal as they contain lead.

Gas cylinders are extremely dangerous even when empty. Even the tiniest trace of residue is potentially hazardous. So, skip hire companies cannot remove them. Fuel, paint and solvents are chemical compounds and cannot be put in your skip. Medical supplies are also unsuitable due to the risk of contamination. So, it is crucial that people handle needles and biological waste appropriately.
