Where Do Skips Get Emptied?
You hire your skip, we deliver it and then you fill it to capacity with all your various items. But have you ever wondered what we do with that waste when the skip is collected?
It’s important that you understand your waste is being disposed of in a responsible way, even if you’re not the one dealing with it. One of the biggest reasons for this is that you need to know you’re using a licensed waste carrier, or else you could be landed with a fine if the waste is tipped illegally by an unscrupulous company.
Here at SCS Waste, all of our skips are collected by our team and taken directly to our site to be emptied there. Our waste transfer site is located right here in West Sussex, helping lower our carbon footprint.
This not only gives you peace of mind when it comes to using our skip hire service, but it also allows us to handle large quantities of waste appropriately.
That then leads us to the next common question: what do we do with the waste?
What happens to skip waste?
Once you’ve thrown all your items into our skips, you can be forgiven for putting it out of your mind. But it helps some people to know that their waste isn’t simply being driven straight to a landfill site.
You’ll be relieved to know that we take the opposite approach here at SCS Waste. We put recycling at the forefront of our operations, which is why we have our own recycling centre. Here, we can sort your waste to maximise how much can be reused and recycled, with our aim being to recover 100% of the waste you put in our skips.
This ability to recycle skip waste comes thanks to our investment of over £1 million in facilities and equipment. It allows us to take on waste from all our customers and clients, adhering to the latest industry regulations concerning how to treat various waste types.
How are skips transported?
As a leading skip hire company for Arundel, Littlehampton, Bognor Regis and the surrounding areas on the south coast, we have a large fleet of vehicles to transport skips. For our standard skip sizes, we have chain lift skip lorries – the most common type of vehicle for transporting skips that you’ll see on the roads – while we also use hook lift skip lorries for larger containers.
Roll-on roll-off containers require our biggest vehicles, helping to transport huge quantities of waste for processing and recycling.
Our variety of skip hire vehicles and focus on the environment have led to a well-coordinated operation that helps homeowners and businesses across the region to tackle waste disposal responsibly. We understand that our approach to skip transportation and where your skip gets emptied factors into who you choose as your skip hire company, so if you have any other questions for us, we’re always happy to discuss them and put your mind at ease.
