Top Tips For Rubbish Removal in your DIY Projects
To remove the stress of waste and keep DIY hassle-free, we’ve put together some top tips to consider for rubbish removal in any DIY project, so you can smash your next DIY project:
Tip 1 – Consider what waste your project will create
The amount of waste depends on the type of project. A lot of DIY waste, such as leftover paint, empty paint tins and mastic tubes cannot be disposed of in a skip.
Tip 2 – Consider the size of your project
The size of the DIY project will give you an indication of the amount of waste that is likely to be produced.
Tip 3 – Be Responsible
When it comes to rubbish removal, if relying on a third party there is a risk of fly-tipping. There are a million fly-tipping incidents in the UK every year – and it places a huge burden on your local council.
Fly-tipping is a criminal offence and the waste producer (you) is legally responsible. So use a reputable company and not just the cheapest or you risk a £50,000 fine, or a prison sentence!
Tip 4 – Pick a Rubbish Removal Service
Now you know the amount of waste and what it’s made of, it’s time for rubbish collection. Skip hire is often the most economical way to deal with waste. It is low-cost and hassle-free and there are skips sizes suitable for all sorts of DIY waste.
