Recycling With A Skip

Now that spring is finally upon us, we can begin to enjoy warmer weather and days of prolonged sunshine. This is also inevitably the time of the year when property owners will begin to look at the waste within their gardens. Disposing of these materials will help to reduce clutter and to provide a clean environment for the coming summer months. However, it is also important to appreciate the types of waste that can be recycled as well as those which are prohibited. Let's take a look at some garden waste clearance tips so that you will be able to point your efforts in the right direction.

Garden Waste Recycling: What is Permitted?

You should be quite pleased to know that many garden-based materials can be sent off for recycling. The majority of these involve organic substances. Some common examples include:

  • Compost (piles of leaves, grass clippings and dead plants).
  • Waste from the kitchen (egg shells, bones, used coffee filters and peelings from fruits or vegetables).
  • Paper products (be sure that they were not used to clean up any chemical substances).
  • Waste from pets.

In theory, you are also permitted to dispose of meat. The only issue is that this material can become rancid and it may even cause maggots to breed over time. So, it could be a good idea to rid yourself of this waste separately.

What Items are You Not Permitted to Recycle?

In the same respect, there are specific substances which cannot be used towards traditional garden recycling methods. The most common are larger rocks and stones. However, it could be a good idea to employ them as walkways or even as gravel within drainage runoff areas. You may also choose to bury loose rocks underneath a bed of flowers; smaller stones can act as excellent substances to evenly distribute water throughout the property.

We should also note that there are some spring garden waste clearance projects which will result in a good deal of rubbish. Perhaps you are looking to replace an existing layer of topsoil or you are preparing a specific area for a new addition to your home. In either of these instances, common recycling techniques are not likely to provide economical results. This is when the advantages associated with a skip hire service come into play. What benefits do these options have in store?

Why Choose a Skip Hire Service?

Now that the clocks have "sprung forward", you have an extra hour each day to tackle challenging waste removal and landscaping projects. Many property owners choose to employ the flexible services provided by a quality skip hire service. Not only are these extremely economical options, but you can choose from a host of different sizes based off of your needs. Skips are commonly measured in cubic yards (based off of the total amount of material that they can hold). Smaller units such as a two- or three-yard skip can be ideal solutions for smaller tasks. However, other options such as 20-yard builder's skip can make light work out of even the most challenging of projects. They can accommodate bulky items such as a large amount of compost as well as heavy waste such as infertile topsoil. The fact of the matter is that there is a skip for every requirement that you can imagine.

Working Smart as Opposed to Hard

Whether you are looking to spend a weekend tidying up or you have a major garden waste recycling task in mind, it is always important to know what types of products are able to be recycled as well as those which might require other methods. Please also keep in mind that regulations are likely to differ from location to location. If you have any doubts, it is wise to consult with your town council in order to obtain detailed instructions.
