Are you currently hiring a skip or considering hiring a skip for the May Bank holiday weekend? Whether you are a business owner or homeowner, we have created 7 hints and tips to use when hiring a skip this May Bank Holiday…
The Key To Hiring A Skip This May Bank Holiday
1- Location, Location, Location!
Before your May Bank Holiday skip is delivered you will need to choose a suitable location for the skip that is flat and free from any obstructions.
2- Hazardous Waste
The simple rule when it comes to hazardous waste and that is to leave it out. Usually, items such as petrol, diesel, oil, paint and batteries will not be accepted by your May Bank Holiday skip provider.
3- Responsible Loading
It is your responsibility to load your May Bank Holiday skip correctly and safely. Always place larger items first and loose waste last when filling your hire skip evenly.
4- Different Skip Sizes
Make sure you first determine how much rubbish and waste you have to avoid hiring a May Bank Holiday skip that is either too small or too large.
5- Council Support
Items such as fridges, freezers, paint, batteries, mattresses or carpet may be eligible to be removed by your local county council.
6- Public / Private Land?
If your May Bank Holiday skip is being placed on public land, you will need to request a permit from your local council before you do so. If you do happen to need a permit to place a hire skip on public land such as a public road then our team at Martlands Waste Management can help you with this, contact us for more information.
7- Skip Delivery
Give clear instructions to the chosen waste management company driver where your hire skip is going to be placed and once it is delivered do not attempt to move it as they are heavy and may damage your property.
