Waste removal involves disposing of various kinds of waste. Therefore, the skip you hire can be used for regular construction waste or hazardous waste, such as asbestos. Containers come in various sizes that span as large as roll-on and roll-off skips.

Banned Skip Items

To hire the proper skip, you need to know what can and cannot be thrown into the container. For example, if you hire waste removal services in Weymouth and order a regular skip, you cannot include the following products:

  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard
  • Fluorescent lighting tubes
  • Waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) materials
  • Fridges
  • Freezers
  • Tyres
  • Gas bottles
  • Electrical items with plugs

To get rid of plasterboard, it is better to buy a waste bag designed for its disposal. You can set out the bags next to the skip and have all the debris collected simultaneously. That way, you can still get rid of the plasterboard without violating any rules. You can also order a skip that will hold only plasterboard materials.

Do Not Overload a Skip

When you load a skip, be careful about throwing too much rubbish into the container. Whilst some drivers will go ahead and remove skips that contains a large amount of contents, some may feel that the container is unsafe to haul.

When skips are delivered for disposal, they are fully inspected. During the process, any items that are found in the skip that are not permitted are placed in quarantine. In turn, the skip hire company completes a non-conformance report. Clients are charged extra for the disposal of the non-permitted waste, so it pays to follow the disposal directives of a company.
