If you are considering a renovation of your kitchen, hiring a skip from Staffordshire Skip Hire should be one of the first tasks on your list.
For our latest blog, we are going to explore all the facets of kitchen renovation and what parts you will and won’t need a skip hire for.
Can I renovate my kitchen on my own?
Renovating your kitchen is a big task to undertake, so you will need to ensure you are fighting fit and ready to take on the project. If you do not feel confident in doing this on your own, you can always look at hiring manual labourers who can help with tasks such as loading a skip.
It is also important to set realistic deadlines for the renovation project, as you could find yourself with a half-finished kitchen that doesn’t help anyone.
How to Segregate Your Waste
Knowing what waste streams there are and where your waste fits in is always a task in itself, but it can also dictate what sort of service you need. Staffordshire Skip Hire will collect almost any waste you have, however, some kitchen items are classed as hazardous waste or require special treatment or disposal.
If your waste is hazardous please get in touch for further guidance.
Here are some examples of items you can add to a skip hire –
- Table & Chairs
- Paper & Card
- Old Utensils
Alternatively, here are items that are classed as hazardous –
- Paint Tins
- Batteries (Lead Acid)
- Sodium Lamps
- Fluorescent Tube
Staffordshire Skip Hire would recommend the manual disposal of domestic fridges and washing machines.
Estimate the Amount of Waste
Once you have figured out roughly how long your kitchen renovation will take and the waste it will generate, you now need to consider the amount of waste you will generate.
By considering quantities of waste, you could save money on your renovation and get a suitably-sized skip hire from Staffordshire Skip Hire.
Organising Your Inventory
It is important to separate your items into three different categories to ensure nothing is thrown away by accident.
Staffordshire Skip Hire would recommend the following categories –
Items to Dispose – Self-explanatory, these items will be disposed of either using a skip or other means.
Items to Donate – Charities are always looking donations, so look into what you could donate to good causes.
Items to Keep – There are some items that will still be of use in your new kitchen that you will want to keep hold of.
