3 Important Questions to Ask Any Potential Rubbish Removal Company

Posted by on May 25, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on 3 Important Questions to Ask Any Potential Rubbish Removal Company

When you have a big cleanup job at home, you might want to call a rubbish removal company. This can be a better choice than hiring a skip bin, if the items you need removed won’t actually fit in a bin or you don’t want a bin parked at your home for any length of time. Since each rubbish removal company is different in how they operate, you might note a few questions to ask so you know you hire the right company and also know what’s involved. 1. Ask if they actually take the rubbish from your home If you have items like furniture, appliances, and so on, you may assume that a rubbish removal company will come into the home and take them out for you. However, some prefer that you remove these items yourself and put them at the end of your driveway or elsewhere, and they don’t actually come into your home, garage, and so on. They also may not lift items for anything more than loading them onto a truck. Whatever their procedure, be sure you ask about it so you don’t expect more help in the home than what you’ll be getting when they arrive.  2. Always ask what they take and don’t take Most rubbish removal companies will take mattresses, furniture, appliances, old bikes, and so on, but some may avoid taking biodegradable items like cooking oil or food waste. They may also avoid hazardous materials such as fuel oils, batteries, and asbestos or building materials covered with mold. Some might take old vehicles or an ATV, while some might not. If they do, you’ll need to know if the vehicle needs to be running and what ownership paperwork you might need to produce for them. If you need anything other than standard household goods removed, always ask what they’ll take and, if there are items they won’t take, ask if they can recommend a disposal company for you. 3. Ask if they donate or recycle items A good rubbish removal company should go through your items and pull out what can be recycled and even donated to a charity; this might include appliances with metal that can be recycled or a vehicle that can be torn apart and recycled. This keeps items out of landfills and also helps to support local charities. You might also want to ask which charities they donate to, so that you know it’s a cause you feel comfortable...

Making Your Renovation Job Easier Through Skip Hire

Posted by on Nov 9, 2015 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Making Your Renovation Job Easier Through Skip Hire

If this is the period of time when you’ve finally decided that it’s time to start renovating your house, you’re probably faced with a lot of questions about how to make the renovation process easier. Well, one of the ways you could make the renovation process that much smoother is by choosing to hire a skip bin. It’s probably the easiest and most affordable solution when it comes to removing large waste quantities from your premises. Here are just some of the most popular benefits that you could benefit from by choosing to hire a skip bin. Ease & Convenience Once you’ve figured out how big you require the skip bin to be and chosen a company to hire it from, it will be delivered right to your house. The primary advantage of skip bins is that you will no longer have to drive to the local garbage site after each work day and dump your waste in. With these bins, you can continuously dump your waste in them and simply ring the company once you’ve filled the bin in its entirety and finished the renovation project. Once you do that, the company you hired the bin from will come to your house and pick it up, leaving you nothing to worry about. No More Getting Your Hands Dirty How many people do you know that enjoy getting their hands dirty by sorting through trash? The answer is probably none. When you choose to hire a skip, you won’t need to worry about getting your hands dirty ever again. The skip company is responsible for disposing of the bin in an eco-friendly manner. But even if skips are extremely convenient and can make the renovation process much easier, you must keep in mind the following things before going any further: The Placement of the Skip You may need to obtain a permit for placing the skips near your premises, depending on the place where you live. If you are unsure of whether or not you need one, ask the hire company about the permit before letting them bring the skip bin to your house. It’s entirely possible for some companies to work together with local councils so as to get a permit on your behalf. Health & Safety In order to make sure that nobody will develop health issues while working with skip bins, all companies have certain bans in place that disallow you from throwing some types of items in their bins such as flammable, dangerous, or toxic materials. To conclude, skip hire offers you more time to renovate on-site instead of spending your time driving to the garbage collection site every day. Ultimately, more time to renovate signifies that you’ll get the job done much faster. Talk with skip bin hire companies, such as McSkips, for more information and...

What Can’t Go In Your Skip Bin Hire

Posted by on Jul 24, 2015 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on What Can’t Go In Your Skip Bin Hire

While you may think that hiring a bin to dispose of your waste is carte blanche to get rid of anything and everything you don’t want anymore, there are several items that are generally not accepted in rental bins. Make sure to check with the company, but generally these items are no-go’s for bin disposal: Liquid Waste: Any sort of liquid waste is not accepted for disposal in your rented bin. Loose or in barrels, any liquid waste is regulated by the Department of the Environment. This includes oil, chemicals, paint, or any other sludge material that does not pass the paint filter test. Do yourself a favor and check into the individual disposal methods for your liquid materials in depth.  You’ll face hefty fines if you attempt to circumvent the proper channels for disposal. Food Material: Hired bins are meant to hold non-organic matter. As such, make sure that any food that you are tossing is headed to the proper channels, and won’t sit rotting in a bin. Asbestos: There are proper procedures for the removal and disposal of asbestos. If you encounter asbestos during your project, you’ll want to immediately hire removal experts.  It’s your responsibility to take care of this problem, without passing the buck on to unsuspecting bin disposal companies. Remember, airborne asbestos can cause a variety of long-term health issues, so you don’t want to be attempting removal yourself. Car Parts: Any automobile parts may contain combustible materials that are not allowed in cheap bin hires. You will need to consult a proper disposal service, or contact a junk yard or swap meet to see if you’ll be able to connect the parts you have on hand with someone who can repair the parts or give them new life. Car tyres should always be recycled, and car batteries contain acids that are considered chemical waste and harmful to the environment. Chemical Containers: Even empty chemical containers such as gas bottles must be disposed of separately, as they may contain combustible materials. If you are unsure how to dispose of these containers, contact your local garage and ask them what they recommend. Some may be able to put you in touch with programs that can help you with your long-term needs. Tree Stumps: Organic material in general is not accepted in most bin rentals. See if you can carve the stump into pieces and take it to your community garden waste or compost heap. With these caveats in mind, you’ll be able to make an accurate decision about the size of bin you will require when placing your order for a cheap bin rental. Save yourself some money, and make the right decisions for the environment. Contact a Skip Bins professional for more help or if you have other...
