Why is skip hire the best solution for garden waste?

Planning a garden renovation project? You’re going to need to think about how you’ll get rid of waste. The council provides all homes with a bin for garden waste, but collections are often not enough to cope with the waste from medium-large sized projects – making our skip hire services an excellent choice.

Although we are based in Preston, we don’t only offer skip hire for those local to us. Skips Preston offer a reliable disposal solution for clients all over the northwest, so if skip hire Bolton is what you’re after, relax, you’ve come to the right place.

Let’s take a look at what makes skip hire the best solution for garden waste:

  • Limited collections on household garden waste

Green bins come in extremely useful for grass cuttings, weeds, and twigs – allowing you to dispose of garden waste as soon as it’s generated. However, there are rules and regulations you need to be mindful of when filling your green bin as the bin men can refuse to empty it until you remove contaminants. Once you’ve removed them, you’ll then need to wait a fortnight until the bin truck comes around again.

  • Restrictions to burning garden waste

In principle, you can burn garden waste, but there are various factors to take into account before you do.

Planning a one-off garden bonfire doesn’t usually cause too many problems but make sure you let your neighbours know in plenty of time so they can bring in their washing before it ends up smelling of smoke. Burning garden waste every time could cause a nuisance and may result in neighbours reporting you to the local council.

  • The inconvenience of managing compost heaps

Although compost bins are a great way to get rid of garden waste and food scraps, they aren’t the easiest things to manage. To keep a compost heap healthy, you need to make sure that non-compostable waste is kept out.
