To make it easier for you, we take care of the disposal of the waste thrown inside the skip, ensuring that as many materials as possible are recycled. At Preston Skip Hire, we aim to recycle 90% of all waste, essentially preventing it from being sent to the landfill site. Keeping certain things out of your skip will allow you to get more out of your skip hire Preston, including the following:
From fridges and freezers to kitchen appliances, some materials are not suitable for skip hire Chorley or skip hire Bolton and therefore they need to be disposed of carefully.
Electrical appliances are made up of hazardous chemicals and substances, hence why it’s so important that you don’t place them in the domestic skips that we provide for skip hire Chorley.
When replacing your electricals with the latest variants, try to find a trading service where the retailer delivers your new products in exchange for the old ones, taking them off your hands. Another option to dispose of electricals is to make a charitable donation or to sell them; this will allow you to get rid of them quickly, without taking up too much space within your skip.
- Paints and Solvents
To your dismay, not everything can be disposed of within the skips that we supply at Preston Skip Hire. Paints and solvents are fine examples of items that you should keep separate from the rest of the waste in your skip because they contain dangerous chemicals.
If you’re decorating your property, you may be tempted to throw any empty paint tins in your skip and although this is easy enough to do, it can increase the risk of skip fires.
As well as this, we don’t accept bleaches or detergents within any of the skips for skip hire Bolton- it wouldn’t be safe for our fleet drivers to lift the fleet onto the back of our loading vehicles!
If you’ve ever tried to get rid of tyres, you’ll know just how difficult it is! Needless to say, a tyre will take up most (if not all) of the space in your skip, leaving you with limited space to dispose of other materials.
Tyres require special treatment before they can be disposed of, but they can also be recycled to create rubber playground equipment!
Any plasterboard needs to be kept separate from general skip waste, otherwise, you could compromise the recyclability of the remaining contents.
The Environment Agency state how plasterboard and gypsum materials cannot be mixed with other types of waste- they need to be isolated because they emit dangerous gases once they are broken down.
So, if you’re thinking of disposing of plasterboard in a skip that we provide for skip hire in Leyland, we advise you not to because you could be handed an expensive fine for not complying with strict skip hire regulations!
No matter how big or small the batteries are, they are not suitable for the domestic skips that we provide and therefore they must be disposed of responsibly.
