Skip Hire Tips

At Barna Recycling, we deliver skips to households and businesses for all types of reasons; spring cleaning, renovations, construction projects, house moves and post flood or fire clean ups. Whatever your reason for hiring a skip, bear in mind these important tips!

1. Hire the Right Size Skip

Booking too small a skip is annoying and adds additional time, stress and cost to your project. At Barna Recycling, we have developed this handy skip sizing guide to help you determine what skip you need. Our trained customer service team are also on hand to answer any specific questions you may have.

2. Make Sure You Have Enough Space

Make sure you have enough flat, unobstructed space in your driveway for the skip you are hiring and that there is enough room to access your skip for dumping the waste. If you don’t have a driveway big enough for the skip you require, you can apply for a permit from your local authority.

3. Think Before You Dump

While a skip can be used to dispose of many types of unwanted materials, there are a number of items which cannot be placed in your rented skip. These items include but are not limited to the following; electrical items e.g. fridges, microwaves, fluorescent lights, asbestos, medical waste, oil, paint, solvents, gas bottles and any flammable hazardous or toxic materials. If it doubt, don’t hesitate to ask our skip delivery team or office based customer service team for clarification.

4. Don’t Overfill Your Skip

For health and safety reasons, overflowing skips cannot be removed and transported from your property to the Barna Recycling waste management facility. Skips should be filled to the top and no further. To avoid other parties from placing items for disposal into your skip Barna Recycling have a number of skips available with security lids.
