Skip hire is the process of hiring a large container for disposing of waste. A skip can be used to get rid of different types of waste, including domestic waste, commercial waste, construction waste, and hazardous waste. Skips are available in different sizes to accommodate different volumes of waste.
When hiring a skip, it is important to know what you can and cannot put in it. At Skip Hire West Midlands, we accept different types of waste, including:
General waste refers to non-hazardous waste that is commonly generated in households, including food waste, packaging, and garden waste. We accept general waste in all our skips.
Construction waste is waste generated as a result of construction activities. At Skip Hire West Midlands, we accept construction waste, including bricks, rubble, and concrete.
Commercial waste is waste generated by businesses, shops, and offices. This type of waste includes paper, cardboard, plastics, and packaging materials. We accept commercial waste in all our skips.
Hazardous waste is waste that poses a risk to human health or the environment. Examples of hazardous waste include asbestos, chemicals, batteries, oils, and fluorescent tubes. We do not accept hazardous waste in our skips. If you have hazardous waste, please contact your local council for advice on how to dispose of it safely.
There are certain items that cannot be disposed of in a skip. These include:
Electrical items, including TVs, refrigerators, and washing machines, cannot be disposed of in a skip. These items need to be recycled separately because they contain hazardous materials.
