If you are thinking of hiring a skip to clear out your home, then you might not have realised that there is a better, cheaper, and more environmentally friendly alternative.
Not all skip hire companies sort through the items that you chuck into the skip so if there were any items that could have been reused or recycled then they will just be tipped off into landfill.
Some of the items that could have been reused could get contaminated by being mixed with rubbish in the skip or being left outside exposed to the weather.
The alternative is hiring a house clearance company. They are a few good reasons: they will do all the heavy lifting and clear the items you don’t want any more from your home; they tend to be more competitively priced as the cost is reduced in comparison to the landfill charges including in hiring skip; they will separate the items that can be reused, the items that could go to charity, and the items that can be recycled.
Waste not, want not. It’s worth having a look at alternatives to hiring a skip. It can help reduce stuff going to landfill and could save you a few pennies too.
