Getting Your Garden Ready For Summer

Getting Your Garden Ready For Summer

Dreaming of warm days? Us too, and that means it is time get back in the garden to make it summer ready. But dealing with the waste from a garden clearance can be one of the most difficult parts of the project. So, whether you are planning on a large landscaping project or clearing out your shed – not to mention the weeds – our reliable skip hire means you have one less thing to worry about.

A skip is a great disposal option if your project is going to take you a few days to complete. Suitable for green and general waste, our skips are available in different sizes including 8-yard and 14-yards. In addition, we also offer a wait and load service if you don’t have space for a skip.

If you are not sure what you require, this guide will provide you with all the help you’ll need when choosing a waste clearance to help handle any garden maintenance you are carrying out.

How do I know what I need?

The first thing to consider is how big your project is and how much waste you expect to produce. The length of time can help determine which waste clearance you might require – you may wish a large skip over a long time for big projects such as demolishing a shed or getting rid of old garden furniture, however a smaller 8-yard skip may be more suitable for a general garden clearance. In addition, consider how much waste you might produce as this is a good place to start.

If you are still unsure, our team is on hand to help and have experience in all sizes of projects. They will be happy to discuss the options with you.

How will I store the garden waste?

Next, it is worth thinking about skip placement and your location. If you can’t get your skip onto private property, you may find placing your skip on a public road is required. In this case, you may need a skip permit – our local team can help you do this.

An alternative to skip hire, our wait and load service could be a good option if you need urgent waste clearance. It does what it says on the tin, you call us, and we will send you a man and a van to do the rest. This service means you don’t have the hassle of having to load the waste yourself, removing any stress or hassle.

Can I put any waste in my skip?

As a complete waste management company, we can recycle most household and garden waste. There are however some ‘hazardous’ items which can’t be put into the skip. These include:

  • Fridges/freezers
  • Tyres
  • Gas bottles
  • Asbestos
  • Nappies
  • Ink/toners/paint
  • Batteries
  • Fluorescent light tubes
  • Electrical items such as TVs, microwaves etc
  • Food

By taking all of the above into consideration before you book, it will help to keep costs down and ensure your project goes without a hitch.

Plus, we can have your skip to you in as little as 24 hours, so what are you waiting for, order today and get your garden summer ready.
