When you are disposing of waste, it is important for the environment that it is done correctly and considerately. There are laws against fly tipping, so it is important that you use a Licensed Waste Carrier. Here is our guide on how to choose a reputable skip hire company.
Choose A Reputable Skip Hire Company – Licensed Waste Carriers
When choosing a skip hire company, you should ask if the business operates their own waste transfer stations. A licensed company will be able to show you a “waste carrier’s license”. This is valuable evidence that they are not ‘cowboys’.
You get what you pay for…
Cheaper is not necessarily better: Companies that offer cheaper prices than licensed waste carriers could be disposing of waste illegally. Collecting and disposing of waste ethically is more expensive than you might think –there are landfill taxes and recycling costs, plus fuel and public liability insurance to pay for. At a reputable waste management company, their waste disposal rates will reflect these costs.
The Risks of Fly-Tipping
If your skip hire company disposes of your waste illegally by fly-tipping, then you can be fined. Even if you are not caught this time, its increase your council tax bill because the council has to clear up their mess.
What Happens To The Waste We Collect?
Even legitimate companies that don’t fly-tip your waste will simply pay the relevant taxes and empty straight it into an already overcrowded landfill site. Would you prefer to hire a skip hire company that throws all of your waste into landfill, causing damage to the environment? Or would you prefer a skip hire company that is proud of sifting carefully through the waste in order to recycle as much as possible? Every skip that we collect and process in our depot is thoroughly searched to separate the recyclable items, so as little as possible goes into landfill.
