Researching your skips

For years we have been a proud provider of skips to Teesside, delivering a reliable and high quality service that gives our customers value for money. Based in Middlesbrough, our skip hire service is available for the entire region and we can cater for a plethora of commercial, industrial and domestic requirements.

Before arranging a skip service, you need to do your research into how much waste you are expected to produce during the clearing stages of your project. Once you have a clear idea of the levels of rubbish that will be present, you can easily decide on the right size skip you want to hire. This is important because if you choose a skip that is a bit too small you will be left with waste left over. One too large will also cause issues, as you will be spending more money than is necessary.

Before you decide how much waste you want to throw away you should donate, recycle and sell any and all unwanted items. This can include sofas and other items that can be reused. By doing this you will be cutting down on the amount of rubbish that needs to be disposed of. Another tip is to make sure that you know what can and can’t be put into a skip. Attempting to put unsuitable items in skips can cause big problems, including meaning they can’t be taken away for disposal.

It comes as a surprise to people that certain items cannot be placed into a skip, but health and safety regulations make this point quite clear. As a general rule, items deemed harmful or hazardous cannot be placed inside due to waste disposal rules and legislation. Such items include microwaves, fridges, fuels and filled paint tins. For a full list of items please contact us.

At L&C Skip Hire we have a number of skips available starting from our two yard ones up to 40 yard models. Each and every size is available for delivery to your site and collection from it once you are done with them. For a first-class skip hire service make us your first call.
