Other Skip Hire Pricing Factors

A number of factors matter and have to be looked into when you want to hire a skip. We at Norris Shepherd’s-Bush understand these skip hire pricing factors, and we have decided to give you a brief explanation of each of them. Regional Pricing – the cost of hiring a skip differs from region to region. A skip that would cost you £50 in London, for instance, may cost you less in Shepherd’s-Bush. The length of time you want the skip for will also affect its pricing; the longer you want it for, the higher the cost. Not also forgetting that skip hire permits have a duration too. Limitations and Restrictions – you can’t always put a huge amount of weight in a skip just because it looks big. You need to know about what limitations or restrictions your skip hire service provider may have. Some items are prohibited from being put in the skips, find out what they are, and obey the restrictions so you don’t get a fine or sanction.

Issues with renting skips in Shepherd’s-Bush

Skip hire is not always easy, you have to get the right one, and there’s more stress if you need a permit- we know all of this at Norris Shepherd’s-Bush. Narrow paths, local council laws, small gardens, double yellow lines, red routes, pedestrian only lanes, congestion zones, limited space in front, and narrow paths are the issues which usually come up with skip renting in Shepherd’s-Bush. We know that the growing population in Shepherd’s-Bush will mean a more difficult skip hiring process soon. Our waste management services are readily available if you wish to skip the whole task of skip hiring.

Skip Hire Rules and regulations

A new waste licensing system was put in place in 1994 to replace the Control of Pollution Act of 1974 on the regulation of deposits, recovery, and removal of “controlled waste”. Controlled wastes are wastes from industrial, commercial, and household processes in solid or liquid form. If you only do personal garden waste removal, however, you do not require the license. To be granted the license, whoever is applying is required to confirm their ability to hold it. Anyone applying to own a new site has to have the Waste Management Industry Training and Advisory Board (WAMITAB) certificate, which proves they are “technically competent”.

In section 34 of the act, the duty of care for all those who make, bring in, move, treat, store or remove controlled waste is available. It was stated in the Act that “any escape or waste must be avoided, waste can only be moved to an authorized person, the waste being transferred should go with a written description or you will be penalized.” Waste disposal methods are regulated by special waste regulations 1996 and the hazardous waste regulations 2005.

Skip Hire Permits

You need a skip hire permit if you want to hire a skip for a construction project and will have to place it on public land. Using land that is not yours to place the skip means you must have a skip hire permit. This land could be a federal highway, government road, a street, or could be owned by a third party. You don’t need a skip hire permit if you have your own land and won’t be intruding on government or third party-owned land. Intruding on another person’s land, privacy or space may get you fined, or the skip may be removed and seized. With £20, you can get a skip hire permit, but charges may differ because of the skip size or council who issue the permit. There are also skip hire permits for a lot more than £20, including £60, £80 and £100. Any questions you have on pricing can be answered at the local council office. However, it’s our duty at Norris Shepherd’s-Bush to make your skip hire a smooth process. We can get you a skip hire permit and deliver the skip you hire to save you stress. When you request an online quote, we include the cost of getting a permit, which will not be necessary if you have land of your own to place the skip in. Our skip hire service can come with skip hire permits that are valid for 14 days. You can reach us now on 020 8698 8000 if you need to know more details on skip hire permits and other waste disposal services.

Tested skips with certificate

It is not unusual for you to be nervous about how safe and effective it will be to use a skip if you’re hiring for the first time. Along with making various skip sizes available to you, we also give you skips that have been tested and have certificates to show just that at Norris Shepherd’s-Bush. Whether you require a closed skip or an open one, you can count on us to deliver it with proof of its efficiency and quality.

Prohibited Items

At Norris Shepherd’s-Bush, we allow a large variety of waste to be put in our skips. However, we have restrictions on the kind of items that can go in our skips. We can get these products from you and have them treated depending on how hazardous they are. Items such as medical waste, aerosols, electronic appliances, gas canisters, heavy duty batteries, television sets, and fluorescent light bulbs are not allowed in our skips.

Recycling Targets/Landfill Policy

Recycling targets were created by the Environmental Agency and government some time ago. At Norris Shepherd’s-Bush, we acknowledge these set recycling targets and they are as follows: The Environmental Agency aims to make sure the Englands’ and Wales’ environment can improve and is protected. Many government organisations and local authorities are in place to ensure recycling targets are met, and that areas needing environmental services receive the services they have available. The aim of the agency is also to make sure the quality of land, air and water gets better constantly. They work towards the control of pollution in the environment and encourage the protection of natural resources like plants and animals. That’s not all! The body also enlightens the general populace on issues regarding the environment, improving waste removal standards, encouraging the recycling of household products to reduce the quantity of waste, and lots more. You can contact the Environmental Agency office in your region, or visit the head office in Bristol at Rio House, Waterside Drive, Almondsbury BS32 4UD. Telephone: 08708 506 506. With respect to Government Targets, a landfill directive was released. It states how much the quantity of waste need to be lowered for the purpose of landfills in certain areas of the UK. Inclusions were made for landfills to only take treated waste from 2007. The targets are as follows from the most recent year: The quantity of waste taken to landfill sites in the UK by 2015 should be 35% of what was taken in 1995. Only 50% of the waste taken in 1995 should be taken for landfill sites in the UK in 2013. No more that 75% of the waste retrieved to use for landfill sites in the UK should be retrieved by 2010 Also added by the Waste Strategy 2000 were the following targets, to ensure 75% waste recovery and the achievement of the landfill directive, the following waste percentages have to be recovered: 67% in 2015, 45% in 2010 and 40% in 2005.

Waste Strategy 2000 had published in it, by the government, the natural recycling targets, which are as follows:

By 2015, 33% of household waste should be composted or recycled. By 2010, 30% of household waste should be composted or recycled. No less than 25% of household waste should be composted or recycled in 2005, local authorities were set at 30% for the same year. To help the local authorities recycle more and reduce waste and for landfill diversions, a “Waste Performance and Efficiency Grant” was released by the government. A list of materials that can be recycled include: wood, vehicles, composting, clinical waste, building materials, batteries, paper, printer cartridges, plastic, furniture, glass, oil, metal, electricals and electronics, computers, and a few others.
