Once you’ve identified an approved and licenced skip hire company, like Colson, hiring a skip is simply a case of giving them a call and providing the details of your requirements and delivery address. In some cases, it will be possible to deliver your skip on the same day that it’s ordered, but usually, it will be delivered the following day. Since most reputable skip hire firms can take credit card details when you order, you may not even have to be at the premises when your skip is delivered. Bear in mind, though, that skip delivery lorries are large vehicles, so it will be necessary to ensure that appropriate access is available to the delivery driver.
Hiring a skip to collect and take away the clutter generated by house clearances, garden rubbish clearance and DIY projects and small building and home renovation jobs is a simple task. Before you hire a skip, you’ll need to work out the size of skip you’ll need and how long you need to hire a skip for. If all or part of your skip will be placed on a public highway (road, pavement or verge) due to limited access or space at your property, you’ll also need to obtain a skip permit from your local authority to cover the skip hire period.
If you didn’t specify a collection date when you ordered your skip, arranging collection when your project is complete is simply a case of calling your skip hire company and letting them know that the skip is ready to be picked up. As with delivery, most skip hiring companies will aim to collect your skip at the earliest opportunity, generally the day following your request. Skip hire is a fairly simple process, all in all. Through communication with your waste removal service, hiring a skip can be made even easier. Specifying your requirements, time brackets and the type of waste will be key to a successful pickup.
Did you know that the construction industry is the UK’s largest user of natural resources and produces a huge amount of waste? Roughly, 25 million tonnes of construction waste is disposed to landfill each year! That’s why there are important initiatives in place that look to reduce, reuse and recycle before reaching the point of disposal. Our experts can offer advice on the types of waste included and deposited via a construction project.
If you’re a kitchen fitter, a builder or a bathroom installer, then you would also be able to utilise a service such as commercial waste disposal. These sorts of jobs can produce a large amount of waste from within the home and you need to ensure you’re removing the waste in a responsible way! Renovation may also be carried out on the scale of large commercial projects in massive buildings, such as the installation of hospital vinyl flooring. For big and tricky jobs like these, you will likely need the assistance a commercial waste disposal contractor.
When a demolition takes place, there is certainly going to be a lot of commercial waste to get rid of! That’s why it’s important to make sure everything that can be recycled is done as such to ensure we are not wasting valuable resources.
If you’re looking for commercial waste disposal then we here at Colson Transport have you covered. We are fully qualified, insured and licensed waste carriers with the Environmental Agency; so you can be sure that we always dispose of unwanted items with the correct care and attention as is required. Whether it’s bulky materials or hazardous materials we have the right team and the correct equipment to make sure it is all dealt with.
Where your waste goes after it is taken away by a skip hire service depends on who removes it for you. As a very environmentally conscious company, Colson Transport aim to recycle as much waste as is possible to do. What is not possible to be recycled will be disposed of carefully and responsibly, because we understand that failure to do so can be highly damaging to our environment.
The European Waste Catalogue lists approximately 650 different waste types. Those that are suffixed with an asterisk are considered hazardous. In some instances, there are hazardous and non-hazardous entries for a specific type of waste. This occurs where the waste contains a dangerous substance at or above certain levels.
In these cases, the composition of the waste must be assessed to determine whether it should be classified as hazardous or non-hazardous waste. Often the manufacturer’s product information or safety data sheets will provide guidance. It is important to note that it’s illegal to mix hazardous waste with either non-hazardous waste or other hazardous waste.
If you are placing your skip on the public highway you will need a skip permit. Skip permits are issued by your local council in Nottingham and Derbyshire.
If you hire a skip with Colson Transport, we can get the skip permit for you and the cost of the permit will be added on to your hire quote (let us know when you book if you need a permit).
Skip permits have an expiry date so we must ensure your skip has been removed by this date. This means that if you haven’t requested collection your skip may have to be taken, regardless of whether you have finished using it (it is a legal requirement!)
If you plan to place your skip on the road, speak to a member of our team before hiring to ensure you do it legally.
