Trade Skip Hire
If you need to remove a pile of commercial waste or industrial waste from your business premises then you’re going to need to hire a skip from a trade skip hire firm. There are hundreds of skip hire companies in the UK, which provide skips on both a day-by-day or contract basis.
You can usually choose from a number of different sized skips, from midi skips to maxi skips and builder skips, and the ones you choose will depend on the amount of, and size of, waste you need to move. There are a number of points you should consider before hiring a trade skip for industrial or commercial waste, and we have outlined these below:
- Do not overload a skip, it is illegal and the skip hire company may charge you for the removal of excess waste.
- You should also be careful not to block access and exit routes to your premises. If you need to leave the skip on a public highway you will first need to apply for a skip permit from your local authority.
- The trade skip hire company will require a written description of all the industrial and commercial waste you intend to put into the skips you hire, and it is worth noting here that most general skip hire companies cannot provide provisions for the removal of hazardous or toxic waste, asbestos or tyres.
- You have a legal obligation to ensure that the skip hire company you choose is registered with their local waste disposal authority, and that it disposes of the waste legally.
