When you are deciding to hire a skip there are a few aspects that need to be considered. The first is the size you want to invest in. they come in three basic sizes - mini, maxi and REL bin. The mini one is also sometimes known as the midi skip. These are suited mostly to small building works which involves refitting of kitchens or bathrooms. It can also be used for garage or garden sales that occur on either an annual or seasonal basis. These can hold up to 30 to 40 black bin bags of garbage or refuse. |
The Maxi one is for larger quantities of wastes. These wastes can include refuse or debris from DIY projects, clearance of your house or garage, or cutting and trimming your garden. These are equipped to hold nearly 60-80 bags of waste. The REL bin is usually 10 to 14 cubic yards in volume. They can be open at the top or completely enclosed as per your choice and the waste that needs disposing.
Services generally provide other different types of skips as well like lockable ones, covered ones, roll-on roll-off types, walk-in types, etc. The services have their own programs for waste collection and have some flexible programs that cater to all preferences.
To drop a skip in your area you are required to get a permit which is not a simple task. The services usually help to procure these permits for you. If you cannot get permit (which is the case in big cities) then they have a loading service in which you get around 45 minutes to load the waste into the truck before it is taken away. And generally 95% of most waste is recycled by the services themselves.
