Skip Hire Slawston Leicestershire

Skip Hire Slawston Leicestershire: If you're preparing for having a new kitchen fitted, some home improvements, tidying your garden or clearing out your loft space, there is a pretty good possibility that you're going to be producing a considerable amount of garbage which is going to need disposing of. Now, you might be able to put a fair amount of rubbish in the back of your car and carry it to the nearest waste tip in Slawston, but this takes time, may damage or mess up your vehicle, and is limited by what you are able to easily fit in your boot. The popular solution for most individuals in Slawston is to hire a skip, and get all that garbage hauled away, recycled and disposed of properly. Should you decide that this is the best idea for you, then your initial task is to search for a reputable company who do skip hire in Slawston, and book to have a skip brought to your property.

Skip Hire Basics: As soon as you have identified an acceptable Slawston skip hire firm, there are 3 main things that you need to decide on: where exactly are you going to place the skip, what size of skip do you require and when will you want it?

Skip Hire Slawston Leicestershire

Sizes of Skip: You can find a range of different skip sizes available for hire and the majority of Slawston skip hire companies can provide whatever size you require for your waste disposal, and usually it is a case of choosing between a mini skip (1-2 cubic yards/25-35 rubbish bags), a midi skip (3-4 yards/35-45 bin bags), a builders skip (6-8 cubic yards/65-85 bin bags), and a large skip (12-14 yards/180-210 bin bags). The most widespread skip size that you regularly see outside properties in Slawston, when they're having refurbishments is the standard builders skip which is suitable for a considerable amount of waste, without having to overfill it or stick doors or boards down the sides to get more in.

The builders skip should be appropriate for most garden clearances, home improvements, loft clearances and those kind of jobs. A typical example of an undertaking that a builders skip will be suitable for is if you are replacing a bathroom or kitchen and you will need to dispose of all the old units and fittings, the packaging from the new fittings and units and all of the other trash generated in the process.

Where to Position the Skip: You'll need to find an appropriate position on your property where you can site the skip, a driveway is best, or a section of lawn that you do not care about damaging. If you do not have a driveway or suitable place in your garden, you may need to position your skip on the roadway bordering it, in which case you're almost certainly going to need to apply for a permit/licence from your local council. Normally, skip hire companies in Slawston will be glad to acquire this licence for you, whilst some may demand that you apply for this yourself. It's far better to go with skip hire company who'll get the necessary licence/permit for you, since they know exactly where to apply, how to obtain it and what is needed. Obviously the preferred option is to position the skip somewhere on your property, even if you need to remove a couple of fence panels to fit it in, as this negates the requirement for permits, licences and all that aggravation. If you do need to get a permit yourself, it's fairly simple to apply for one on the internet. Skips positioned on a main highway will require reflective markings, traffic cones and night lights to alert other road users, you may be fined up to £1000 if you fail to do this.

Booking a Skip: Getting your skip ordered and delivered to your property at the perfect time is also vital, given that hiring a skip isn't cheap and generally skip hire providers in Slawston, will only let you tie up their skip for something like 2 weeks, therefore you don't want your skip standing idle for a few days while you are waiting around for the builders to start work. Try to time the arrival of your skip to correspond with the start of the job or at least with the day you start accumulating rubbish. By doing it this way, you will get the most use from the skip and avoid having the skip hire company harassing you to pick it up before you're ready. When the skip is full and you're ready to have it collected, allow the skip hire company a minimum of 2 days notice since they will need to slot the collection into their busy schedule.

Filling a Skip: When it comes to putting rubbish into the skip, you need to take care that you do this correctly, aim to pack the garbage in as tidily as you can. Besides being less hazardous this should allow you to get more waste in. Be sure you only put allowable waste into the skip since the majority of skip hire companies in Slawston, won't let you tip certain types of materials including batteries, televisions, aerosols, toxic substances, PC monitors, freezers, gas canisters, tyres and plasterboard. Don't over fill your skip because the driver can refuse to take away the skip if he believes it to be dangerous. Skip drivers will generally chuck a safety net across the skip before lifting it up onto their wagon, though this is mainly meant to retain the lighter items, therefore ensure that nothing large and hazardous is able to topple off skip while being transported.

Maybe the most essential move to make when you are hiring a skip in Slawston, is to ensure that you select a skip hire firm who'll dispose of your garbage responsibly. You, being the waste source, are solely responsible for its disposal, so if it is fly-tipped a mile along the road, it's your front door that the council enforcement officers will doubtless be knocking on with a substantial fine. Skip hire companies in Slawston need to hold a "waste carriers license", so ensure that they have got one and that it is valid. Aside from this obligation there is little regulation applicable to skip hire businesses, therefore it's not always plain sailing tracking down one that is responsible and legitimate. Generally if a skip hire firm has been conducting business for some years in the Slawston, Leicestershire area, it is most likely that they'll be a good choice.
