How Preston Skips sort the contents of skips

Skip hire Preston enables you to get rid of rubbish from your DIY or renovation project quickly and easily. But what happens to the contents of skips when they’re collected?

The team at Preston Skips arrange skip hire around what works best for you – taking care of transportation to save you the hassle. When we collect a full skip from your home or building site, we quickly inspect it to check there are no prohibited items, such as:

  • asbestos
  • batteries
  • chemicals
  • fridges/freezers
  • oils
  • pesticides
  • solvents
  • tyres

We also make sure waste doesn’t exceed the maximum fill level around the outside of the container – ensuring it’s safe for our driver to lift on to the back of our reliable fleet.

Instead of taking the waste from skip hire in Preston to the landfill site, we take it to the nearest sorting facility where we will empty it and remove recyclable items, including:

  • cardboard
  • garden waste
  • glass
  • hardcore
  • paper
  • plastic
  • textiles
  • wood

When you throw an old wooden wardrobe or chair in a skip, we make sure that it’s correctly disposed of. Wood usually goes to a wood recycler and is shredded.

We also make sure that aggregate waste is sent to specialist companies, ready to be sold on for building and construction work, and metals go to metal merchants where they will be further processed. After being separated, the metal will be recycled and reused to create new products. Uncontaminated card and paper is usually sent to paper mills where it’s recycled into new items.
