If you are a construction company or an industrial concern generating high volumes of debris that you need to dispose of safely and regularly or even if you are a household, the best way to go about it is by hiring a skip for trash disposal. Skip Hire services will ensure that your high volume of waste materials are removed from your site without posing a threat to passersby or the residents in your area, completely containing it without spillage during transportation. For you, it is the easiest way to send your waste to the landfill.
Shape and Size Helps
Skips are containers that have a trapezoidal vertical cross section design with a wider top and a narrower bottom. The mouth of the skip is wide to receive and contain more waste and debris materials without spillage while occupying a smaller ground area for placement.
Some of the bigger skips are plain rectangular, but they do sometimes come with a flared top section to prevent spillage.
A small skip of 2-yard capacity can be used to dispose home and gardening waste or use a 4-yard skip to dispose of old bathroom or kitchen fittings.
The standard capacity of the builder’s skip varies from 6 yards to 14 yards, and other industrial skips are as big as 35 yards.
Skips come in open top option with no lid to close the skip or a closed top option, where a lid is used to cover the mouth of the skip.
Each skip has maximum capacity specifications, that is established to ensure that there is no spillage, and the best practice is to not over-fill the skips beyond the maximum capacity so that the debris doesn’t spill while it is waiting for transportation at your location or while loading or during transportation.
Trip to the Landfill
The skips are loaded directly on to the transportation trucks for transport to the landfill or the transfer station and not emptied into a truck at the work site, while a new skip replaces your old one
Skips are loaded on the trucks with chain and crane system, or if you have a RORO skip in place, they are rolled on and off the truck.
Skips are tough and durable for rough construction or industrial site use
Consult Before Hire

Consult about on-road permits if they are required and secure the necessary permits before transportation. Ensure that your hiring service provides you a transparent pricing structure for your service.
Hire a “Green” service that provides recycling, if you would like your waste to be disposed of in an environmentally friendly way.
