In this article, we'll discuss what you can put in a skip for hire from Skip Hire West Sussex.
We understand that managing waste can be challenging, especially when you're dealing with large amounts of rubbish. Skip Hire West Sussex offers a practical solution for those who need to dispose of waste quickly, easily and affordably. We offer various types of skips, including mini-skip, midi-skip, and maxi-skip. Each type of skip is ideal for specific types of waste or projects. Our experienced team can advise you on which skip is best suited to your requirements.
One of the most common questions we receive is, "what can I put in a skip?" While our skips have the capacity to hold a variety of waste, there are certain items that can't be placed in a skip. Some of these prohibited items include:
Items that are classified as dangerous, such as car batteries, gas bottles, asbestos, and chemicals, aren't allowed to be disposed of in a skip. Hazardous waste needs to be disposed of correctly and is subject to specific regulations. We'd recommend speaking to a specialist hazardous waste disposal company for this type of rubbish.
It's against the law to dispose of electronic items or appliances in a skip. Appliances such as fridges, televisions, computers, and other electrical equipment need to be recycled. Therefore, we'd recommend taking them to a recycling facility or donating them to a charity that accepts electronic items.
Medical waste includes items such as syringes, needles, and other medical equipment. This type of waste should be disposed of separately and treated as biohazard waste.
Mattresses are incredibly bulky and can take up a considerable amount of space in a skip. They don't break down quickly, so it isn't environmentally friendly to put them in a skip. We recommend hiring a specialist company to dispose of old mattresses.
Now that we've discussed the items you can't put in a skip, let's talk about what you can dispose of in a skip. Almost all types of general waste and rubbish can be put in a skip, including:
Our skips are perfect for garden waste removal. You can dispose of all types of green waste, including tree branches, grass, and foliage.
General household waste such as toys, furniture, and unwanted clothes can be disposed of in a skip.
Skips are ideal for construction waste disposal, such as bricks, rubble, and debris.
Offices generate a large amount of waste. Anything from office furniture to paper and cardboard can go in our skips.
DIY projects can generate a lot of waste. Skips are ideal for DIY waste such as old tiles, bricks, and plasterboard.
Choosing the correct skip size is essential to ensure you don't pay for what you don't need. If you're unsure which skip size is best for you, our experienced team can advise you on which skip is best suited to your requirements.
A mini-skip is perfect for small residential projects, such as garden clearances and small DIY projects.
A midi-skip is ideal for larger garden waste removals or small kitchen and bathroom renovations.
Maxi-skips are ideal for more significant projects such as house clearances, construction sites, and long-term commercial projects.
