Five Tips for Waste Disposal During Your Home Project
Most DIY projects or home renovations will produce a lot of rubbish and waste, some of it can be recycled but most of it can’t. From kitchen renovations to house extensions below are five tips for waste disposal during your home project that will take the stress away from getting rid of all your rubbish.
Different projects will create different types of waste, so it is a good idea to gauge roughly how much waste you are going to accumulate. Many waste types from typical DIY projects, such as leftover paint and empty tins are not suitable for normal waste disposal and need to be disposed of in an environmentally friendly way. So when you are planning your project consider the materials you will be using and what you might have leftover one it is complete.
As well as knowing what type of waste you are going to be getting rid of you will also need to determine the size of the skip you are going to need to hire. For example, a simple garden clearance may only produce a small amount of waste which can all be recycled. Whereas a building renovation will require a much larger skip and the need to dispose of the waste in a responsible way.
On the subject of being responsible, fly-tipping is a common occurrence in the UK when it comes to the removal of waste and this is damaging the environment. So, it is very important that if you are using a skip hire company to dispose of your waste you need to make sure they do it in a responsible way. You can always check with the company to ask how they will get rid of your waste - don’t forget that fly-tipping is an offence which can incur fines and even prison.
