Whether you are landscaping your garden, relaying your driveway or clearing out your garage, you are no doubt wondering which type of skip is best for you.
There is a number of choices of skips and rules and restrictions for each different type. This is why Staffordshire Skip Hire has put together this post to tell you all about Builder’s Skips in closer detail.
What can be added to a Builder’s Skip?
Our 10 tonne Builder’s skip is one of the largest skips we offer, which can be positioned on the road with the relevant skip permit. They can be used for disposing of all manner of construction waste including bricks, concrete and rubble, bulky items such as tables, chairs, sofas, desks and wardrobes plus garden waste such as turf, soil and gravel. You can also use a skip to dispose of general household waste.
As with any skip, you should ensure that you do not fill it beyond the Level Load line. The line is there to make sure that loaded skips can be transported safely to a Waste Transfer Station with reduced risk to HGV drivers, site operatives and members of the general public.
If a skip is filled beyond the Level Load line, your skip may not be collected and you could be charged a Wasted Journey fee.
What can’t be added?
- Anything exceeding the Level Load line
- Waste electric and electronic equipment items
- White goods such as fridges, freezers and dishwashers
- Hazardous waste such as laptops, TV’s, lighting tubes
- Paints, liquids, chemicals and solvents
- Plasterboard/gypsum waste
- Food waste
