Whether you’re performing extensive renovations on your home or giving your property a long overdue clean, there’s no denying that sometimes your regular rubbish simply isn’t up to the task at hand.

That’s where mini skips come in.

Hiring a local skip bin is the most efficient way to dispose of large amounts of waste in Bilston. Here at Black Country Skip Hire, we’re proud to provide an industry leading service that helps you recycle and dispose of waste in a manner that’s both affordable and convenient. Here are four top things to think about to get the most out of your local skip hire.

1. Amount of Waste

The most important thing to consider when hiring a skip bin is how much waste you need to dispose of. Take the time to roughly calculate the quantity of rubbish you’re going to generate and ensure the skip you hire is big enough to accommodate it all – but not so large that you waste money on unused capacity. If you’re dealing with large amounts of waste, it might be worth considering our tip by the tonne service.

2. Type of Waste

Another factor to keep in mind is the type of material you’re going to be putting in the skip. This is critical because, depending on the type of waste, there may be certain health and safety risks which may affect you and anyone else using the skip. In addition, many local skip bin providers will have certain restrictions on the types of waste that can be put in to their skips. For example, here at Black Country Skip Hire, we do not allow hazardous waste, asbestos, pressurised containers, tyres, car batteries, large appliances, food waste or fluorescent tubes to be placed in our skips.

3. Access to the Skip

Something that’s often overlooked when hiring a skip in Bilston is the skip’s accessibility. In an ideal world, you would want the skip to be strategically placed in a location that’s convenient for you but also easily accessible for a delivery truck. Naturally, this means you’ll need to clear a direct path to the desired drop point, but you’ll also need to consider the gradient and quality of the ground surface. In addition, remember to be mindful of other obstructions in the surrounding environment that may pose a risk during delivery or collection.

4. Skip Hire Permit

Depending on where you’re planning to position the skip, your local council may have restrictions in place that require you to obtain a permit. As a general rule of thumb, if your skip is going to be on the road, you’re probably going to need to get an appropriate license. In some cases, you may even need a permit if your skip is sitting on a section of land between your home and the street. While this might sound like a lot of unnecessary red tape, it’s important that you take the time to ensure you’re complying will all the relevant regulations.
