Skip hire isn’t a one-size-fits-all service; there are a number of different things to think about to ensure that the service you receive isn’t just “adequate”, but seamlessly handles your waste management requirements. That’s the subject of the latest post on our recently published blog. It’s aimed at clients in Rochester, one of the principal service areas covered by Medway Skip Hire.
If you’ve accidentally landed on this page urgently searching for a reliable, affordable skip hire option covering Rochester and its surrounds, you can cut right to the chase by calling our friendly team on (01634) 271 945 or (01634) 713 700.
Types of Waste – The types of material that you’ll need to responsibly manage and dispose of depends on the project at hand; the typical construction job sees a lot of concrete, stone and similar inert materials generated, alongside general waste and soil. While all the aforementioned waste can be dealt with via skip hire, should you be generating potentially harmful or toxic waste specifically prohibited by skip hire regulation (available online, or Rochester clients can call us for advice here), you may need to find a supplementary or altogether different option.
Volume of Waste – The skip hire containers we transport to and from Rochester sites come in a real range of sizes. Those on the smaller end of the scale are great for very minor undertakings, such as clear-outs prior to a home move; on the larger end of things you have colossal containers suited for gigantic commercial and industrial projects. So once you’ve figured out point one – the types and sources of waste that will be generated – give consideration to the volume of each of these sources expected. It’s not a huge problem if you under- or over-estimate the size of the skip you require, as we’re close by Rochester in Medway and can quickly attend to recover a full skip and deliver you a larger, empty one.
Restrictions – Here we’re talking about both time restrictions, and limited space on site. If you don’t have the space to sit one of the aforementioned, larger skips, you may need to opt for a “little and often” approach by filling and emptying a smaller skip over the course of the day. Likewise, if time constraints mean you don’t have time to empty a smaller skip over the course of a project, opting for a larger container may provide peace of mind.
As the Rochester area’s favoured skip hire specialists, we can provide tailored advice to clients who want to figure out exactly what skip size is best.
