Hiring a Skip for Your Garden and Domestic Refuse
by Mladen Pupovac on Jan 26, 2017
Choosing the right waste management company for your domestic waste isn't always easy. Thankfully, the hard work has already been done for you.
When you only have a small amount of garden refuse or household waste, hiring a mini skip is a perfect choice. These are great if you are redecorating, have a minor building project, or are removing waste from your garden, such as a felled tree, removed soil, or turf.
Regular Garden Maintenance Creates Refuse
Simple maintenance of your garden, especially during the autumn and spring, including mowing your lawn, weeding flowerbeds, and pruning trees and shrubs, can generate more waste than will fit in your regular bins. If you want to avoid having to deal with transporting countless garbage bags full of your garden rubbish by car to your local recycling centre, hiring a small skip from a local company, is simple, convenient, cost-effective, and quick option to make the process of removing the refuse from your garden quickly and easily. For this type of task, look for a skip measuring approximately 2 cubic meters.
If you have a larger project going in your garden, such as re-turfing your lawn, clearing a garage or shed, or felling a tree, you will definitely need to hire a skip. If you will be generating significant amounts of waste, you might consider hiring a skip that is a bit larger than you expect you will need to clear your garden of rubbish. For this a 3 cubic meter skip is perfect.
Renovating a home can not only improve your everyday living space and give your home a facelift, it can also increase your property value significantly. Whether you are replacing your 1970s style bathroom, creating an extra room using loft space, or updating your kitchen, you can get a great deal of satisfaction and pride by doing your own home renovation successfully. However, renovating a home will generate a great deal of rubble, which you will have to ethically and responsibly dispose of.
Hire A Skip
What is the best way to rid yourself of your old bathroom fixtures, boxes of clutter, and old kitchen cabinets covered in dust? Hiring a skip is the smartest solution to deal with waste generated from renovating your home. Transferring the waste you generate by hand to your closest recycling center is not only time consuming, it is impractical. If you have a small car but are replacing an entire bathroom, you will likely wind up hiring a bakkie if you want to be able to dispose of your old bathtub.
Of course, another option is hiring a "man-with-a-van" to come and collect your waste from the home renovation project, but again, you find yourself at the mercy of their reliability and availability, and if you have enough waste that it takes several trips, you could wind up paying a great deal out of pocket. The best and most practical way to deal with the waste generated from home renovation is hiring a skip from a service.
They will usually be able to deliver your skip within a day, and can sometimes even get one to you on the same day, freeing you up so your can concentrate on the project at hand and giving you a convenient location to dump your messy waste materials as you produce them. Once you have completed your project, all that remains is calling up your skip hire company and they can send out someone to collect the skip and correctly dispose of its contents.
