Whenever you travel around and you see any construction or demolition work going on, you can be sure there will a rubbish skip nearby. Skips are an easy way to store and remove whatever rubbish is produced from building work, renovations and through demolition. Even house clearances need skip hire in East Grinstead!
You may be wondering what sort of waste can safely be disposed of in a skip, and it is important to be aware of what can and cannot be placed in a skip before you hire one.
For example, there are a lot of toxic or hazardous materials that cannot be mixed with other waste, and will need special handling to be disposed of safely. We can accept all types of general waste including carpet, wood, metal, furniture, garden waste, soil, bricks, blocks, windows, tiles and many other waste streams. Here are some examples of what you can use our skips to remove.
Household Waste Recycling
If you need skip hire in East Grinstead for a general de-clutter or a house clearance, then most general household waste will be acceptable. However, take care with anything that could pose a health risk, such as drugs, medicines and syringes. These items should not be placed into an open skip. Most pharmacists and doctors surgeries provide a service for the safe disposal of unused medicines and medical waste.
Pet waste and leftover food scraps should not be placed into a skip as this could encourage vermin.
Our skips are designed to hold waste building materials such as bricks, rubble, soil, wood and glass. However, if you are conducting a building project or a demolition that would result in a lot of heavy items to be removed, such as bricks or concrete, then it may be wise to contact us for advice before hiring your skip. You may be considering hiring one of our larger skips for your job, but it may result in the combined weight of the contents and the skip making the load too large to lift. Our friendly and skilled team are here to advise you on the best skip choice for your job. Just call us on 01342 715978 and we will be more than happy to help you.
You may need skip hire in East Grinstead as there may be some items you wish to dispose of that seem harmless, but can pose health risks if left exposed in a skip.
