Is Hiring a Skip Safe?

Is Hiring a Skip Safe?

In these strange times, we all have to take extra precautions to make sure that we stay safe and that our loved ones are not at risk.

As a result, whenever we book services or make arrangements regarding the collection or delivery of items, it’s easy to start worrying about the implications regarding our wellbeing.

In this article, the team at Wigan Skip Hire – waste disposal experts providing skip hire in Wigan and across the North West of England – explains how we’re keeping our staff and clients safe in all of our locations.

Wherever you request skip hire Horwich, Leyland, Preston or any of the surrounding localities – we can assure you that your comfort and health is paramount to us.

COVID-19 Safety Measures

Right from the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Wigan Skip Hire team have followed strict measures to protect ourselves and our customers.

We wear high quality protective equipment, wash and sanitize our hands and vehicles regularly and practice social distancing at all times. We don’t share vehicles and we’ll always keep at least two metres away from customers.

In addition, we currently only accept card payments over the phone or online. This is to prevent any spread of the virus through contact with cash that may have been handled by an infected individual.

This applies to all locations – whether you need skip hire in Preston, Bolton or any other area in which we work. If you have any questions about this approach – or if it poses a problem for you – please get in touch with us and we’ll be happy to assist you.

Other Safety Matters

Of course, we continue to stick to our pre-COVID-19 safety approaches too. We ask that customers do not use our waste containers to dispose of certain items for health and environmental reasons. These items include:

  • asbestos
  • batteries
  • fridge/freezer
  • medical waste
  • ovens
  • paints
  • solvents
  • toxic waste
  • TVs

This list remains the same wherever you’re arranging skip hire Bolton, Preston or anywhere else besides. If you have questions about certain materials, please contact us before placing them in a skip.

We also ask that you always keep access clear for members of our team picking up or dropping off your skips. We don’t want to cause any damage to your property or put anyone in danger. The site you have earmarked for your skip should also be as clear of debris as possible.

Finally, we ask our customers not to stack waste beyond a skip’s fill line. If you have more waste than will fit safely, simply call us to remove and empty the container and we can arrange to replace it. Again, this remains the case for skip hire Bolton, Chorley, Wigan or elsewhere.
