8 Things to Consider When Hiring A Skip for Household Waste

By Skip Hire

Household waste is typically any rubbish that you wouldn’t put in your normal, small wheelie bin. Whether you’re about to begin a home renovation or just need a big clear-out, domestic skip hire can be the perfect way to dispose of the waste that you generate.

At KCM Waste Management, we are experts in waste disposal. We, therefore, offer a wide range of skips that are suitable for our domestic customers throughout South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire.

If you’re thinking of hiring a skip for your household waste, however, then there are a number of things you should consider first:

household waste skip hire

1) Be Sure Domestic Skip Hire Is the Best Solution

First and foremost, you should make sure that a skip is definitely the best waste disposal solution for your household waste.

A skip is the perfect solution for waste removal if you’re likely to be generating messy waste over a number of days. For example, if you’re redesigning your garden or replacing your kitchen.

If you have various bulky items to dispose of such as sofas and beds, then you may find our man in a van service more favourable and cost-effective.

Likewise, if you have a great deal of waste ready to dispose of that needs removing straight away, then you may opt for our grab hire service. Our grab wagons can remove up to 17 tonnes of waste, which is the equivalent of more than 2 builders skips. These are also a good alternative if access to your property is an issue.

2) What Size Skip Do You Need?

Once you’ve decided that skip is the best choice, you need to pick which size to hire.

You don’t want your skip to be too big as you’ll be essentially paying for unused space. However, it’s crucial that you choose one that’s big enough for your waste, otherwise you may end up having to order another.

You should be sure that your waste can fit within your skip, and that it doesn’t exceed the height of the skip’s sides. Waste exceeding the load level limit is illegal and will result in your skip not being able to be collected.

For information on the sizes of skips available, take a look at our website here. Or for more information, just give us a call on 01709 361 144.

3) Do You Require A Permit for Domestic Skip Hire?

Many people are unaware that if you have a skip on a public road, then a permit from your local council is required.

At KCM, we like to take care of this process for you. As an authorised skip hire contractor within both South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire, we can organise this with your local council.

If you have private land such as a driveway available then you don’t need to worry about this.

4) How Long Do You Require Your Skip?

When booking a skip, you need to decide on how long you’re likely to require it. You should also consider the type of service that would suit you best.

At KCM Waste Management, our skip hire service is available for 1 week as standard. However, if you require it for any longer, we can arrange this for just a small charge.

We also offer alternative skip hire services, such as exchange, wait and load and tip and return that may suit your project better.

5) Are You Ready for Your Skip?

For convenience and to save money, you should ensure you have waste ready for your skip before it’s delivered.

If your project isn’t ready to begin when your skip arrives, then you risk additional costs to keep your skip for longer.

At KCM Waste Management, we are generally able to provide our local customers with a next day delivery service. You can just check our availability on our online direct booking portal when you’re almost ready for it.

6) What Can You Put in Your Domestic Skip?

You’re able to put a huge range of items in your skip. From garden waste to small WEEE items. For a full list of items that you can put in a skip, take a look at our website here.

There are a few types of waste that can’t be disposed of in a general waste skip such as hazardous waste. If you’re unsure just give us a call and we can then recommend you an alternative household waste disposal service.

7) Are There Any Access Restrictions?

Your skip will be delivered on a skip wagon. These vehicles are wider and much heavier than a normal car. So it’s important to ensure that there’s enough room for it to fit down the road.

If your skip will be placed on your driveway, then you should also consider gate access. Also, make sure that there’ll be enough room to maneuver your car once it’s on.

8) Where Does Your Waste Go?

You want to feel secure that your waste won’t end up in landfill where it will damage the environment.

If you hire a skip with KCM Waste Management, then you can rest assured that your household waste will be disposed of in a way that won’t damage the environment. We will take it to our authorised waste transfer station in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, where at least 94% of it will be recycled.

Our competitively-priced domestic skip hire service is convenient for both small removals and full house clear-outs.

If you’re based within South Yorkshire or West Yorkshire and looking for domestic skip hire, then we’re here for you.

At KCM Waste Management, we have provided skips to our customers throughout Yorkshire for over 30 years.

3) We Have Over 30 Years’ Experience in Skip Hire

Having over 30 years’ experience means we are clued up on skips and the laws of waste management. We can advise you what exactly you’re able to put in your skip. If there’s something that you’re unable to put in a skip then we can recommend one of our different waste disposal services.

Many people are unaware that in order to have a skip outside your home that isn’t on a private space like your drive, then you need a council permit. Being an authorised skip hire contractor means that with KCM all you have to do is let us know where you’d like your skip leaving and then we can take care of the permit for you!

Our long-lasting passion for waste management means we have developed a strong rapport and trust amongst our customers within the local South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire communities.

That means that you are able to completely rely on us, as you can see by our range of 5* customer reviews.

KCM are committed to being environmentally friendly and strongly believe that all waste should be put to good use.

We are extremely proud to currently recycle 94% of all the waste we receive and are working towards a zero-landfill policy.

All of the waste we collect is currently recycled locally at our licensed waste transfer station at our headquarters based in Rotherham, South Yorkshire.

To reduce the waste we send to landfill, we also turn a large amount of waste into biomass fuels or aggregates. These aggregates are then put to use mainly within the construction industry for building projects which you can learn more about here.

Our West Yorkshire Skip Hire Service Is Flexible

Our new West Yorkshire skip service offers an expansion on skip hire options! If you don’t want a skip sat on your property, we can bring a skip to you, allow you time to fill it and then take away at the same time.

Our same day collection service will allow you the full day to fill your skip before we come and collect the very same day. This allows you more flexibility with the time available to fill your skip but you can still have your waste removed as soon as possible.

An exchange service is also very popular for large amounts of waste. We would deliver a KCM skip at a time most convenient to you, allow you as much time as required to fill this, and then bring a new skip for you as soon as your first one is filled. This means you are no longer waiting around for a new skip to be delivered and your project can continue without any disruption.
