Cardiff Caerphilly Skips are here to offer skip hire advice. Our many years in the industry means we’ve experienced a lot of ups, downs and problems along the way. We often run into the same three issues when it comes to hiring out our services, so to prevent history from repeating itself, we’ve explained these in a simple post. Read on for some tips to consider before you visit us.
What Can’t I Put Into Skips?
A common question we get is ‘What can’t I put into skips?’. Most things can be recycled but, by law, there are a few that must be disposed of in differently. These items include;
- Solvents and Batteries
- Asbestos and Plasterboard
- Liquids and Clinical Waste
- Electrical Items and Gas Bottles/Canisters
You will need to contact your local council to dispose of any of the items listed above, as there are special ways to do so that require a special licence. Unfortunately, we will have to make extra charges to you if any of these are found if your skip.
What Skip Sizes Are Available
People often find it hard to work out which one of our skip sizes would be best for the job they’re undertaking. They don’t want to get one too small as all the rubbish won’t be able to fit and therefore, they’ll have to either hire another skip or dispose of it another way (which is not recommended).
Our best advice would be to hire the largest size you can afford as you’re almost certainly going to fill it! Even if it’s a small job you’re doing, you’ll be surprised at how much waste you can acquire. The size that fits most people best is our Builder Skip so that may be a good place for you to start. However, if you really are stuck, you can call us on 02920 862328 to speak with a member of our team who will advise you on what’s best.
Skip Storage Cardiff
Another thing to consider is your skip storage. Make sure you have a designated space for the skip to stay whilst you are hiring it, this could be on your driveway or garden. It’s important it’s placed somewhere that it’s not going to get in the way as they aren’t easy to move.
You can also request a permit from your local council so the skip can be legally placed by the road. These usually last 28 days from the day you receive the skip, however this may vary. Alternatively, we can produce a permit, but we allow several working days for it to be approved, for more information on this be sure to give us a call on 02920 862328.
