Skips can be used to remove garden waste from a domestic property including soil, turf, felled trees and hardcore. Skip hire is a great option if you are investing in the landscaping because it will allow you to clear the site very quickly and get started with the redevelopment. You can get rid of a much higher volume of waste in the skip than you can with local collection services. It will also save you from loading and hauling the rubbish yourself.
Smaller 2 and 4 yard skips are usually ideal for garden waste and have impressive capacities for their size. If your project is even larger, you can opt for an 8 yard skip or a smaller commercial sized one. When you hire a skip you’ll have to estimate the volume of waste you have to get rid of. When you do this you should remember to be very conservative. It is more cost effective to choose a skip that is slightly too large than having to hire multiple skips.
One thing to keep in mind when filling a skip is the maximum weight, especially when dealing with green waste. This will differ depending on the size but you’ll need to take care to observe it or the company may be unable to remove it once it is filled. It is easy to underestimate the weight of soil, turf and hardcore so again it is better to be conservative.
Alongside the weight, you should ensure you load the skip carefully. If you are dealing with felled trees and branches you’ll have to ensure they are cut to size so they can fit properly. The skip provider may be unable to remove the waste if you fill the skip and leave contents sticking out of the sides.
