Skip Hire Bishops Stortford

Hiring a skip in Bishops Stortford is simple in the event that you understand what you're doing. So here are a few things you should know about skip hire:

Engaging a skip in Bishops Stortford You can:

  • Look in a neighborhood business directory or on the web for 'skip hire'.
  • Search in your local council's website - since many councils provide a summary of waste contractors in their own place. 
  • Examine skips on drives and roads near you. By law, the operators must set their name and contact details on the skip. Choose some or each and every one of these operators - and give them a call. 
  • Contact Waste King 

Avoid mistakes 

Check with the Environment Agency the operator is licensed to take waste and properly qualified. 
Request the skip operator for its waste carrier license number.
Visit the Environment Agency's website and assess whether that number relates to a valid license.

Skip size

Skips come in several sizes - and adhere to the 'imperial' measures of cubic yards. This equates - roughly - to two standard washing machines or dishwashers, or to one vertical fridgefreezer.

The most familiar size of skip - in a residential area - is one which holds either six or eight cubic yards of substances. Both these sizes of skip are known - confusingly - as 'contractors' skips'. Please note that numerous councils don't allow skips using a capacity bigger than eight cubic yards to be placed on a public highway.

The optimum size of skip for your need is the one which enables you to use all of its space to include all of the waste you are required to dispose of. If you can't fill the dumpster with waste, you're paying cash to only transfer air.

Loading the skip

In case you can't load the skip yourself - or get some of your friends and family to do it for you - you likely need to look at options for getting cleared of your waste materials. You could contact Waste King, a specialist waste clearance business, which provides both the labour to load the vehicle along with the waste materials with which to remove it.

Skip lorries tend to be between eight and half feet and nine and half feet wide. They tend to weigh at least 7.5 tonnes. If Not, the skip has to be set on the road next to your own property - and that means you'll need a skip permit. In addition, if the dumpster is being set in a controlled parking zone - such as in a residents' parking area, pay & display parking bay or even where there's a single yellow line painted near the kerb - you'll need to get a parking suspension.

Both the skip permit as well as the parking suspension not only cost money but will take several days to arrange.

How long can I keep a skip?

Operators will need to gather the (full) skip in a week - or in a couple of weeks at the most. If you need the skip to be removed sooner - or later - you must agree and discuss this with the skip hire firm. If the skip's being put on the road, you got to take account of the provisions of your own skip permit and any parking suspension that really needs to be in place. These two things cost money. So the longer that the skip's there, the more money it costs you.

What can I put in a skip located in Bishops Stortford?

  • Paint and cans of paint 
  • Fluorescent tubes 
  • Liquids 
  • Oil, petrol or diesel 
  • Electrical appliances and equipment, including televisions and computer screens; refrigerators, freezers and air-conditioning units 
  • Batteries 
  • Gas canisters and gas bottles 
  • Asbestos 
  • Tyres 
  • Hazardous and toxic materials 
  • Clinical or medical waste, including syringes 

The skip operator can - legitimately - bill you extra money for the hire of the skip or ask you to truly remove the waste before the skip could be removed, if the waste is above these edges. 

What happens to the things within the skip? 

Waste King is pledged to recycle at least 90 per cent of each skip load of waste. This decreases the environmental impact of the waste - and enables Waste King to provide price reductions to its customers.

What's the cost of Bishops Stortford based Skip Hire?

As a rough guide, a normal price for an eight yard builder's skip is currently around GBP220, plus the expense of any parking bay suspension and skip permit.

Is there an alternative to a dumpster in Bishops Stortford?

Yes. A specialist waste clearance, collections and recycling business - such as Waste King - may save you time, energy, effort and cash. Moreover, Waste King's staff will
segregate the waste to ensure the maximum amount is recycled and the minimal quantity waste goes to landfill - thereby helping the environment also.

Waste King will:
Save you money because it only charges for the quantity of waste removed (not by the skip load)

Manage to clear waste materials from any portion of your property - so, unlike skips, there are never any 'access issues'
