What Not to Do When Hiring a Skip
Skips are used extensively in Scotland to dispose of a wide variety of materials, from household junk, through business waste to construction and demolition rubble. In spite of that, even regular hirers can be unaware of the rules governing the correct, legal usage of a hired skip. As a result, many people make the following errors when hiring a skip:
Overloading – Overfilling of skips is one of the most common difficulties in the Scotland. People, regardless of the size and weight of their hired skip, have a tendency to overfill them. Trying to load a two yard skip with eight yards’ worth of waste will simply cause it to overflow, resulting in a refusal to remove it until it is levelled due to the danger to other road users.
Ordering the wrong size – Rather than opting for the cheapest skip, look for a skip size that is likely to meet your needs. Always go for a bigger size than you think you’ll need. You will save money by not having to hire two skips, which can be costly. To get the most out of your skip, remember to pack all waste efficiently e.g. flatten cardboard boxes.
Poor skip location – Ensure that your skip is in the right place: A skip should ideally be kept on your own property if you are able to which helps to prevent misuse by others and sited to ensure easy access for both us and you. Placing a skip on the road leaves it open to others and means you have to constantly watch out for pedestrians and vehicles when loading. A skip is viewed as an obstruction on the public highway. If you wish to place it on the road or other public space, permission from the local authority is required, not optional. See the Clackmannanshire Council website for details of permit charges in and around the region and the time it takes for you to organise the skip permit.
Depositing unauthorized waste – Please don’t place prohibited items in our skips as we cannot remove them as certain waste materials are hazardous to human health so require specialist recycling and disposal. Our website has a detailed list of prohibited items, and we cannot and will not uplift skips containing these. Please ask us if you are unsure about any waste items before you put them into the skip.
Clients in Scotland continue to use skip hire as their most popular method of waste disposal despite now having other alternatives e.g. man with a van waste removal services or council recycling centres. The main reason is that it offers a simple, flexible, unhurried and environmentally-responsible way to dispose of waste.
Skips are available in a variety of sizes and configurations, allowing you to choose the one that is right for your specific needs. Therefore, whether you’re disposing of a small amount of garden waste, the contents of a house or a large amount of rubble from a building site, there is a suitable skip size and type available.
Skip Hire Alloa provides you with the ultimate convenience and peace of mind of reliable skip hire in the face of alternatives that may be no more than fly-tippers under the surface. Why take the risk? If you do not properly dispose of your waste, it can harm the environment and result in legal action being brought against you, not just the waste transporter. Using a professional skip hire company is the most secure, cost-effective, and efficient method of waste removal.
