When hiring a skip, it is essential to know what can and cannot be placed inside it. Not all wastes are suitable for disposal in a skip, and it is crucial to follow the regulations set by the government. Here are some of the waste types that are allowed to be placed in a skip:
Garden waste is one type of waste that can be put in a skip. This includes grass, leaves, twigs, branches, and other garden debris. However, it is important to note that soil, stones, and rubble cannot be placed in a skip for garden waste.
Household waste includes everyday household rubbish that is typically collected by the local council. This includes paper, cardboard, plastics, and metal containers. It is important to note that hazardous waste such as chemicals, asbestos, and electrical appliances cannot be put in a skip.
Industrial waste consists of equipment, raw materials, machinery, and packaging waste generated from industrial processes. Skip Hire Berkshire can safely dispose of industrial waste, but it is essential to check our regulations before placing items in a skip.
Construction waste includes materials like bricks, concrete, timber, and plasterboard. However, hazardous waste and asbestos should not be included in a construction waste skip.
Mixed waste is a general term used for waste that contains a combination of materials that come from different sources. This includes general household waste, garden waste, construction waste, and industrial waste.
Now that we have gone through the waste materials that can be placed in a skip, it is important to highlight the waste materials that cannot be put in a skip.
Chemicals are hazardous materials that should not be placed in a skip. These include products like paint, oil, and batteries.
Asbestos is a hazardous substance, and it is not allowed to be placed in a skip. Asbestos removal should be done by a specialist company, and Skip Hire Berkshire can help with the disposal process.
Electrical appliances such as fridges and freezers contain a refrigerant that is detrimental to the environment. It is illegal to dispose of them in a skip, and they should be recycled accordingly.
Clinical waste includes medical waste such as needles and syringes. They should not be placed in a skip as they pose a risk to public health.
