What You Cannot Slip In A Skip

0 Comments

There are many things to be considered before hiring a skip to get rid of domestic and building rubbish.  In fact it can be a bit overwhelming for the beginner.  Especially as just about everybody assumes everyone has done it before – plainly they haven’t.   All the talk about cubic yards, builders skips and other […]


Keeping The Homestead Clear Of Garbage

Whilst away on a little travel oddysy around some of the most startlingly beautiful and under populated landscapes around, I was very impressed by the cleanliness around me.  The air was supremely clean and fresh – there was absolutely no garbage strewn about.  This is such a ghastly feature of our road system nowadays – […]


Disposing Of Plastics & Domestic Non Recycling

With all the young folk now taking such a keen interest in our planet and stopping us older ones from ruining it any further, we need to step up  ways to reduce the amount of plastic waste we handle, and plastic single use bags are a nightmare for many!  There are not that many different […]


Space For Skips Needs To Be Built Into Properties

With the ever increasing pressure on our housing stock, the building of new estates is very high on many council agendas.  The need to provide affordable homes has the greatest say when committees of all sorts sit down to decide jut where houses can be built – robust planning rules  have been somewhat watered down […]


Hiring A Skip Ensures Safe & Lawful Disposal

There are many rules and regulations surrounding the disposal of household waste.  At one time, before everything came wrapped and packaged in plastic and polystyrene, polythene and strapping, we used to have our three piece suite delivered by the store, covered in blankets and sheets kept for the purpose.  New washing machines were also covered […]

In just a couple of hundred years we humans have wrecked parts of this fragile planet.  When I grew up dustmen called every week, collecting much smaller bins and we used to burn a lot of unwanted stuff in the back garden – but the Clean air bill stopped that after the smogs of the […]


Suppliers Must Shoulder Disposal Of Heavy Packaging

0 Comments

We can’t get away from the problem of garbage, rubbish, plastics etc. mounting up around where we live and work.   This of course is one of the unplanned consequences of world wide industrialisation.   Everything we buy comes packaged up to the max and heavy domestic products like a fridge or washing machine will come with […]


Responsibility For Skip Content Rests With Hirer To A Point

0 Comments

The safety of skip hire is not something most people think of at all in their working week.  Let’s be fair, I have never had to worry whether a skip near by has had an inspection to say well done for getting it parked in that small space on the verge or even smaller space […]


Keeping Tabs & Cameras On The Skip You Hire

0 Comments

One of the best murder stories I watched on tv dramas came from Finland.  Very dark and not much sunlight throught half the year and dark sunlight for the rest.  The huskie dogs are trained to respond quickly to all eventualities and yet they’re the fiercest looking animals in the world.  The point is that […]


Massive Fly Tipping Problems Caused By Rogue Traders

0 Comments

Hiring a skip is generally the best way to dispose of household junk in one fell swoop.  There are chaps who advertise their rubbish disposal services but some of them are not honest and there has been a great deal of fly tipping happening in the countryside.  What’s even more aggravating is that is the […]
