Construction waste and how it should be managed

Ever since our business began we have worked hard to satisfy the diverse waste disposal needs of our clients. Acting from our base of operations in Middlesbrough, we are able to deliver skip hire services to suit every requirement, catering for clients across the region. As one size isn’t appropriate for every job, we have a selection of different sized skips available to suit every job’s individual nature.

Construction waste consists of those materials that result from the demolition, repair or building of structures. Since most of the rubbish here is a by-product of commercial works, local councils won’t class it as domestic waste. This means that they will not accept very large volumes of construction materials at local recycling establishments. If your project is either on a large or small scale, hiring skips is the most practical way to rid yourself of the rubbish that is created.

Skip sizes do vary, but the best choice for a job of this magnitude is the appropriately named Builders Skip. The model possesses a capacity consisting of 8 cubic yards, which will accommodate a total of 8000kg of construction rubbish. Said waste includes rubble, bricks, mortar, soil and paving stones.

Throughout history, the majority of waste materials from building projects have been taken off to landfill sites. But with natural resources becoming more difficult to source and more commitment to protecting the environment, regulatory changes have been put into effect recently to inspire both recycling and re-use when it comes to building materials. To reduce the burdens that are routinely placed on landfills, it would be hugely advantageous to collect different types of waste separately before the removal is organised. This makes disposal easier and recycling when the skip is full.

At L and C Skip Hire we are always willing and able to assist anyone in and around Middlesbrough who requires something a bit larger that a bin to dispose of their waste. Thanks to our efficient drop off and collection service, your skip will be with you at the time specified and shall be picked up again once filled.

If you need skips you can find a great service from us for a fantastic price. Please contact us to find out more and make a booking if you need to.
