Skip hire is an efficient, affordable and no-hassle solution to deal with your household rubbish, garden waste, or building construction garbage. Nevertheless, skip hire companies put logical limitations as to what a skip comprises. Various items and materials should not be put into a skip.
What can go in a skip?
Due to legal implications, there are various rules and regulations which can be thrown into a skip. The items that cannot be put in can often be picked up separately via other collections. The reasoning for this is that the separation of different waste is to protect the environment, however, many people, unfortunately, don’t follow these regulations when disposing of their waste. Suitable items you can put in your skip include:
Household items, this could include, wood, tiles, plaster, furniture, paper and cardboard, garden waste and clothes.
In addition to this, heavy materials such as bricks, concrete, metals, pottery and clay, rubble and stones.
What cannot go in a skip?
Items which cannot be thrown into a skip are often known as hazardous; those which may cause harm to the environment or damage the health of individuals. These updates came in March 2011 and have become set in stone in terms of waste regulations.
Items which can’t be thrown into a skip include asbestos, gas cylinders, animal waste, explosives, batteries, oil of any kind, chemicals, paint and glue, televisions, laptops, phones, electrical equipment, lighting and tyres.
Although hazardous items are not allowed to be thrown away in a skip, often waste management services will be able to assist you in the disposal of both hazardous and non-hazardous waste.
