  1. Think about the type of waste

Unfortunately, not everything can be thrown in the skips we provide for skip hire in Bolton, Chorley, Leyland, Wigan or Preston, but this isn’t to say A1 Skips can’t help you!

Here’s a list of what you can throw in your skip:

  • General waste
  • Soil, rubble, clay
  • Organic waste
  • Wood
  • Metal
  • Furniture
  • Cardboard
  • Plastic
  • Paper

Other materials like:

  • Asbestos
  • Tyres
  • Liquids
  • Fluorescent tubes
  • Gas bottles
  • Clinical waste
  • TVs
  • Fridge freezers

aren’t suitable for skips but can be collected from your premises and disposed of correctly.

  1. Keep costs low

The easiest way to keep the cost of your skip hire Chorley or skip hire Leyland low is to create a checklist for how much you need to get rid of.

Decide what you’ll do with the waste your project generates and identify whether there is an alternative method to throwing it in your skip, i.e. charitable donations. In doing so, you might be able to order a smaller skip which works out cheaper.

A good way to minimise your skip hire costs is to fill as much empty space as possible. Start by breaking bulky items down into smaller pieces – this will save you space inside the skip, allowing you to fit more in without needing to hire a second one.

  1. Order the right skip
