Spring is one of the busiest times for Skippy. A range of businesses are using the brighter days and the warmer weather to undertake much-needed repairs and refurbishments that they’ve managed to put off through the wet, cold Winter. Builders and businesses owners all over the country rushing to get projects finished as soon as possible.

Commercial skip hire is an essential part of most modern construction work, and before too long most of our skips will be snatched up to accommodate these projects across the UK. However, there are a few great ways to reduce the cost of your skip hire without having to sacrifice on reliability.

Make Sure You Choose The Right Size Of Skip!

In our experienced, a lot of commercial projects are often misjudged, resulting in too small or too large a skip being hired. For the best results, you need to make sure that you estimate your waste production as honestly as possible. In the past, we’ve picked up skips that have contained somewhere in the region of 70% air!

By making sure that you pack your skip well, you can reduce the number of loads that a construction project will require and can really help to save on hiring costs.

Great Ways To Reduce Your Project’s Waste Output!

One of the best ways to ensure that your project enjoys a low waste stream is to reduce the overall amount of material that actually needs to be put in the skip itself. This strategy starts right from the beginning of the project, as soon as you order your materials:

  • Make sure that you only order the quantity of materials that you require. This can not only cut down on the amount of leftover stock, but eliminates the need for excessive storage.
  • Consider material packaging as soon as it arrives on-site. If possible, get your suppliers to remove it for you upon delivery to reduce the waste that needs to go into your commercial skip hire.
  • Always reject damaged or incomplete deliveries – you’ll only end up wasting these materials anyway.
  • Consider the supplier themselves and even the materials. Are they recyclable and are your suppliers certified with the best Environmental Standards?
  • Always look into the potential of recycling or reusing waste materials. You’ll need to double-check the specifications of your materials first, to make sure that they are actually feasible for reuse or recycle.

Don’t be tempted to deal with any commercial waste yourself, even if there’s only a little. Every organisation must register a waste carrier, and this remains true with commercial skip hire.
