Questions you should ask your skip hire company

L&C Skip Hire Middlesbrough provide waste management services to the entire region. Our specialist range of skips to choose from include mini, midi, and large roll on/roll off. If you are thinking about hiring a skip, there are some things you should consider before agreeing a deal.

What can you put in the skip?
Skips are designed for large amounts of bulky waste, not hazardous materials. Materials that can cause harm to people or the environment need to be disposed of separately. This waste can include asbestos, fridges, gas canisters, paint, oil, and any electronics. It is always a good idea to inform the provider what materials you will be disposing of.

Where will the skip be placed?
Skips can be put off the road or on the road, depending on parking restrictions and spaces available. If there is space for your skip off road, then make sure the lorries can access it. The same applies on road.

Does the skip need to be lit and covered when kept overnight?
All skips need to be lit, especially if they are placed on a road. It may be wise to cover them so that no waste can spill out. Covering skips will also discourage neighbours from taking advantage and using it for their own waste.

How long will you need to hire the skip for?
Deciding on if you can complete your project in one day, or if you need it for a longer period of time, will help you determine on how long to hire for. It is important that you inform the company of the duration so you get an accurate price.

What size skip should you order?
