If you are looking to hire a skip in and around South and West Yorkshire, it can sometimes be hard to know where to begin!

When disposing of waste, whether it is domestic or commercial, it is your responsibility to ensure this is disposed of both safely and responsibly. Many cheaper skip hire companies do not have the correct licensing to transfer waste and therefore, will end up fly tipping your waste.

With so many companies offering skip hire at reasonable rates, it is important that you choose an experienced, reliable, and environmentally friendly business.

At KCM Waste Management, we’re experts when it comes to skips and recycling. So, we have outlined a simple guide to hiring a skip for your project in South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire:

How Do I Know If A Skip Hire Company Covers My Area?

The vast majority of skip hire companies will now offer an online direct booking portal where you are able to enter the postcode of your site to check they service your area and for what price.

You can check your postcode on KCM’s online booking here.

Alternatively, you can call the company directly to query any site address. Usually, if the company doesn’t cover an area themselves, then they can recommend a reliable local alternative!

How Do I Choose A Reliable Skip Hire Company?

There are a few ways to find a skip hire company that is both reliable and experienced.

Asking for recommendations from family and friends can be a great start to your search. But the below methods will ensure you have made the best choice.

Check Review Sites

There are numerous review sites that can help provide real experiences from previous customers.

Checking reviews is usually the best way to ensure you are hiring from a reliable and professional business. If a company does not post their reviews or feature on other reviewing platforms, this can be a bad sign.

Do Your Own Research

It is beneficial to yourself to conduct your own research when looking for a new skip hire company.

All companies should be willing to provide their waste license number and all other relevant accreditations. A waste license is provided by The Environmental Agency and is a legal requirement of any waste carrier or site.

Any reputable skip hire company will have this readily available to provide. Along with a full explanation as to where your waste goes and how exactly it is recycled.

Find an Environmentally Conscientious Company

Particularly in this day and age, it is very important that whichever company you choose to hire from is environmentally friendly. They should be committed to recycling as much of their waste as possible. And most importantly, not just sending it to landfill.

You may not be producing enough waste to warrant having a different skip for each waste stream. So you should be able to rely on your skip hire provider to sort through the contents and recycle accordingly.

Here at KCM Waste Management, we are proud to be a zero-to-landfill site. We work extremely hard to ensure we recycle as much as we possibly can.

By using KCM Skip Hire, you are safe in the knowledge that all waste collected is brought back to our fully licensed site to be recycled, and not tipped elsewhere. Every single skip and bin brought back to our site is hand sorted to ensure all that can possibly be recycled is separated and processed.

Ensure They Are Experienced

As with any service you use, it is essential that you find an experienced company for your skip hire. This will ensure the process is as smooth as possible. And that the company is able to provide expert advice, no matter the query.

If you are unsure of what type of waste you have or which skip size would be best suited, our expert office team are more than happy to help.

With an experienced company, you know you will be receiving the skip most appropriate for your waste and it will arrive when you expect it to.
