But below, for those who may not know the legal regulations surrounding skip hire, we’ve provided a handy guide so you can be 100% you don’t fall foul of the law!
Restricted Items – While skip hire is a viable solution for disposing of most waste, there are in fact a number of prohibited items which you cannot place within them. The full list of items Gatwick clients should avoid includes: asbestos, tyres, paint, medical waste, fuel, pesticides, oils and fridges. This isn’t exhaustive though, so for further advice – give us a call.
Proper Disposal – It would certainly be difficult to “fly tip” a full skip; the receptacles are heavy and that’s why skip hire and grab hire services companies like our own use powerful plant machinery to haul them away. But still, it’s worth mentioning: do not dump waste out of your skip without our assistance, or if you’re 100% sure the site of disposal is the proper, legal avenue. The same goes for disposal of excess aggregates and top soil you may have ordered.
Licences – If you live/work on a property or site that doesn’t have space for a skip to be placed, you may have to secure a licence so it can be put on the road. This involves approaching Gatwick local authorities who will issue the permit but require that the skip: doesn’t block driveways, doesn’t infringe access to utilities, isn’t near a junction, and a few other more niche points. As your local skip hire and grab hire specialists, we can aid in securing this permit and explain to you in detail your obligations, should you require.
