Do Not Clear A Lot Without Hiring A Skip



If you are involved in refurbishing or building a structure, you cannot manage the activity without using a skip. Because skips come in various sizes, you need to first estimate how much waste you will generate and then make a selection.

What You Cannot Load into a Skip

The size of the skip is important, as a skip that is too small will cause you to have to purchase another skip, and a skip that is too big will add to your expenses. You also need to know some basic information about accepted skip materials and load details. A local skip hire company in Weymouth can answer any enquiries you may have along these lines.

For example, you cannot toss the following materials or items into a skip:

  • Plasterboard
  • Paint
  • Asbestos
  • Fridges
  • Freezers
  • Paint
  • Gas bottles
  • WEEE waste
  • Tyres
  • Electrical items that need a plug
  • Fluorescent lighting tubes

If you have plasterboard that you would like to dispose of, order a waste bag that is made exclusively for plasterboard. You can have plasterboard bags collected along with your skip or have them collected at another convenient time.

Check on Any Necessary Permits

In some cases, you may need to obtain a road permit. This is necessary if the land that is being cleared is owned by the council. Even if you have a designated spot for parking, you will still need a permit unless you own the spot. Check with the skip hire company if you are unsure of how to handle the process, and review the skip sizes page on a company’s website before ordering a skip.
