Frequently Asked Skip Hire Questions

Skip hire cost will vary significantly depending on a variety of circumstances, such as the size of the skip (bigger skips cost less), the location of the skip, as well as if you would require a skip permit, that is, whether or not your skip will be positioned off-road or on a public road. The costs supplied by C&R Lewis, on the other hand, are reasonable and suitable for any kind of budget.

As part of our skip rental services, we recycle waste as part of the whole process. It is important to isolate garbage into different types of materials to prepare them for processing as soon as possible. Following that, the garbage will be handled through screening, crushing, and compacting procedures. After that is completed, they will be put into different containers and sent to recycling facilities.

Yes, your waste is recycled. No waste from the skips or grab hire trucks will be disposed of in landfills. Instead, your waste collection will be processed, as well as recycled so that it may be given a fresh start and used for other things.

Following collection, the skip will be transported to a commercial garbage disposal site that is properly permitted. At the recycling centre, the garbage is unloaded and processed according to its classification. Based on the garbage kinds, the location of the recycling centre as well as sorting machinery available, the materials can either be recycled or transferred to a waste incineration plant.

When it comes to the amount of weight that may be placed in a skip, there may be certain limits in place. Although many factors influence how much load you can place in a skip, the most important is the size of the skip that you have. Generally, a 4-yard skip can handle loads up to 4 tonnes in total.

Six-yard skips have a capacity of six tonnes and an 8-yard skip has a capacity of 8 tonnes. The weight of rubbish that can be accommodated in a 10-yard skip is 8 tonnes. A 12-yard skip bin can hold 8 tonnes and 16 cubic yards will hold approximately 16 tonnes. You will rarely encounter limitations on how much waste you may place in your skip while dealing with domestic waste since household waste is rarely comprised of large, bulky waste. People who deal with commercial or industrial waste, on the other hand, can be subjected to several limitations as a result of the bulkiness of commercial waste. As a consequence, it’s always necessary to choose a skip size that is appropriate for the kind of garbage you’re dealing with.

The optimal size of the skip is determined by the quantity of rubbish you have and the availability of space available for the skip to be placed. The bigger the skip, the less expensive it is per cubic yards of rubbish collected in the long run. Be prepared to get enough garbage to load it, or you might just end up paying for nothing more than you are supposed to. Remember that most municipalities do not permit skips bigger than 8 yards to be put on public roads or sidewalks.

Some of the most common waste or objects you may dump in your skip include:

Bricks, debris, wood, shattered furniture, plastics, cardboard, solidifies paints, leaves, tree branches, grass as well as other non-electrical fixtures. 

To comply with legal requirements, some materials are not permitted to be disposed of in the skips.

Electrical garbage and electronic gadgets are among the items that fall into this category. As a result, items such as microwaves, refrigerators, televisions, hairdryers, laptops, toasters, and kettles are not permitted to be disposed of in skips. To properly dispose of such material, you must do it at a recycling facility. In the majority of the cases, the waste electrical firms will also provide you with instructions on how to properly dispose of such products.

Other items that should not be disposed of in skips include:

Batteries: Putting batteries in the skip should never be done. They include potentially hazardous compounds and metals that may be exceedingly detrimental to human health. It is necessary to separate them, no matter how little they are.

Solvents, gasoline, liquids, and paint: Solvents, gasoline, paint, and other liquids are not permitted to be disposed of in skips because contain hazardous materials, and there are specialized firms who are permitted to do so. Fluorescent tubes, for example, contain mercury, which is an extremely toxic chemical component. As a result, they require regulated disposal to avoid any dangers.

Medical waste: The same goes for medical waste, which cannot be disposed of in a normal trash can or skip. They have the potential to spread dangerous illnesses and pollution.

Asbestos: Asbestos is a no-no in a skip, period. It is very toxic and dangerous.  As a result, it should never be disposed of in skips and you should consult with an asbestos expert who can guide you on the safest and most environmentally friendly manner to deal with such waste endangering human health.

Gas bottles: Due to the possible threat they pose to you and the environment, gas bottles should never be disposed of in skips. Alternatively, you may get in touch with one of the gas cylinder recycling firms in your local region.
