Rent a Skip – It’s Safer for You, Your Family and the Environment

If you’ve got a home project coming up, we would highly recommend that you rent a skip to deal with your waste disposal. You might wonder if there’s any point going to the trouble to hiring a skip if you’re just doing a bit of a spring clean and clearing out some old rubbish, – why bother when a few trips to the skip will do the job, right? Wrong. Because, you will be surprised by the amount of rubbish that you can accumulate with even the smallest of jobs.

You might only be doing a minor renovation on a bedroom, though even then you’ll invariably end up with much more waste than you’d have first anticipated. It’s not so dissimilar of putting some spaghetti in a pan; you think you’ve got the portion correct and then you end up with enough pasta to feed the entire street.

So, that’s one reason to rent a skip already; you’ll have more waste than you think. Now, we’re going to take a look at some health and safety benefits of doing so.

A Safer Environment Around Your Home

Of course, you wouldn’t want to drive to the tip every 5 minutes, which means that you’d have to leave a lot of crap laying around the house and, in the garden, until you’ve gathered enough to warrant a trip. Of course, this comes with its own set of dangers, particularly if you have children and pets. Let’s say you’re ripping out some old timber in one of the bedrooms and chuck it all out on the front lawn for a few hours. Your children are getting excited and running around playing tag, and then all of a sudden one of them stands on a piece of timber with a rusty nail sticking out, – puts a bit of a downer on the day.

It’s Better for the Environment in General

One of the major benefits of hiring a skip bin is the fact that the company will dispose of the waste on your behalf. Of course, it has been known for ‘cowboy’ companies out there who tend to ‘fly-tip’ their waste, however for the most part you should be alright, – just do your research.

Of course, you can do this yourself, though how many trips to the tip are you going to need to take? How much are you going to spend on fuel? It’s an unnecessary waste of resources, a waste of your time and it will end up being far costlier than you will have anticipated.

In addition to that, when disposing of your own rubbish, you’re always going to overpack your car so that you can cut costs down and get it done as quickly as possible. The danger with that is not being able to see out the back of your car. It’s rather distracting when your vision is blocked entire by all manner of rubbish that you’re trying to dispose of “safely”.
