Hire a Skip Vs a Trip to The Council Tip

Disposing of waste at your local council tip can be significantly more time-consuming and laborious compared to the convenience of hiring a skip!

Why you should Hire a Skip instead of a Trip to the Council Tip!

When it comes to disposing of waste at your local council tip, the process can be a much more time consuming and effort than when you hire a skip! At Blackpole Recycling, we encourage responsible waste management and offer some insights into what you can expect when visiting the council tip.

Sorting and Separating Waste

At the council tip, you are often required to sort and separate your waste into different containers or areas designated for specific types of waste. This can include separating recyclables like cardboard, plastics, metals, and green waste from general waste.

When you hire a skip, all you need to do is throw it in and we will sort and recycle your waste for you!

Time and Effort

Visiting the council tip requires a lot of time and effort, as you'll need to transport your waste to the facility, unload it, and sort it into the appropriate containers. Not to mention the mess in the back of your car after your visit!

When you hire a skip, simply fill it at your leisure and we will collect it on a scheduled day, so you know how long you have it for!

Delivered to your door!

When you hire a skip, we will bring it to your doorstep, driveway or roadside with a permit and take it away when you are ready! You have the convenience of disposing all your waste right outside your property and not have to take it to the tip!

If you don’t have room on your driveway for a skip, don’t panic! We can help advise or source the roadside permit for you. Simply give us a call and we will arrange for your roadside permit and deliver a skip size of your choosing when you need it!
