Have you got a burning question about KCM? Check out our frequently asked questions below and you may find the answer you’re looking for!

What permits do I need to hire a skip?

It’s a little-known fact that you need licenses to hire skips in the UK. At KCM we are skip hire experts meaning we can offer advice or take care of all of your permit organisation if required. Essentially, you can’t put a skip on the pavement.

Where do KCM cover?

We work throughout South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire, we are based in Rotherham and are the leading waste management company there, but also work across Doncaster, Sheffield, Barnsley, Bradford, Huddersfield, Halifax, Leeds and Wakefield.

How long can I keep my skip for?

This depends on how long you have booked the skip for. If you are unsure how long you have the skip, please contact one of our team members who will happily help you.

When will my bins be collected?

We collect Monday to Saturday, whichever day you’d like, take your pick.

What if I have more waste than my bin can hold?

If you have excess waste, please notify us before your collection dates so we can adjust our service accordingly and notify our drivers of the changes. If any additional charges incur our customer services team will give you the heads up.

How do I pay?

You can book online through a secure payment portal, meaning faster and safer booking.

What is waste management?

Waste management is the precise name for the collection, transportation, disposal or recycling and monitoring of waste. Waste management encompasses management of all processes and resources for proper handling of waste materials, from maintenance of waste transport trucks and dumping facilities to compliance with health codes and environmental regulations.

Will I receive a receipt when my bin is collected?

You won’t get a receipt upon collection. However we will send you monthly invoices and send you a yearly duty of care.

How can waste be reduced?

Here’s a few ideas to build into your strategy:

For businesses – conduct regular waste audits, educate your team, stick up recycling signage, learn to repair rather than discard, understand the waste your business creates and the legalities behind it.

In the home – Ditch the plastic bags, make a meal plan, start composting, stop buying bottled water, reduce your packaging, go paperless with your bills.

What is a waste management plan?

A waste management plan is a written record of what must be done to achieve your waste goals. These goals could be to recycle more, to reduce waste or to manage construction waste safely and effectively. KCM can help you create your waste management plan and can execute the collection of the waste you produce.
