A skip is one of the best ways of disposing of rubbish during the lockdown, thanks to the interruption to regular waste disposal and recycling services and the closure of many local authority run tips. So what are the COVID 19 regulations around skip hire…
What Are The Covid 19 Regulations Around Skip Hire?
Hiring a skip is common sense: during the lockdown, you are only allowed to leave your house for a limited time and for a very small number of essential reasons, so taking a trip – or in the worst case, multiple trips – to the local authority recycling sites is not within the spirit of the rules.
Many of the tips are closed to the public anyway and as they adapt to the new social distancing and “Covid Safe” regulations, so even if loading up the car and travelling there was a good idea, it is unlikely you would be allowed in any way!
On the other hand, having a Martlands skip delivered directly to your door, which you are then able to fill at your own pace, and which is then taken away for the waste to be disposed of properly is a far better idea. It is safer for you and it is more practical and – most important of all – it allows you to still get on with all of those jobs that you really need to be doing.
