Don’t Overlook the Value of a Skip

Certain projects require the removal of waste to clean up either a construction site or a large project of your own. Home remodelling is one such project where you could find yourself needing to hire a skip. When you are looking at a special project that may require removal of materials or the addition of a special aggregate, local skips in York can accommodate all of your needs.

Clean up Before Delivering More Material

On many projects, there is a need to remove old materials before new materials can be put in place. Grab hire is the removal of select debris including:

  • Topsoil
  • Aggregates
  • Site waste

Once a job site has been cleared, you may find the need to place new aggregates in place. The most popular aggregates include:

  • Stone
  • Topsoil
  • Sand
  • Ballast

No Skips Are the Same

Skips come in a variety of sizes to fit the needs of your special project, no matter if it is a large commercial jobsite or a small home project. Skips come in sizes that range from two yards all the way up to a very large 14-yard unit. About the only materials not allowed to be placed in a skip are any hazardous materials or anything that may harm the skip. Included in these items are televisions, asbestos, plasterboard, fluorescent tubes, paint tins, tyres, computer monitors, refrigerators, medical waste, batteries, any type of explosive, or any type of petroleum fuel. The most common use for a skip is the removal of concrete, rock, tile, general waste, brick, soil, and other green waste. While some electrical items can be placed in a skip, any product with the crossed-out wheelie bin symbol means that it can not be combined with general waste.
