Does your garden need a bit of a clean-up? Do you have a big garden project starting? The chances are though, you are going to have a big clear out of garden waste. So, what would you do with all that waste? Either recycle everything or burn it, which is very messy and has its own problems. You can also wait for the council to pick up your green bin.
Did you know you can use a skip to clear all that garden waste?
What Is Garden Waste
Garden waste can be any or all of the following:
Grass, weeds, shrubs, leaves, twigs, branch clippings
Lawn, turf, soil, slag, wood chip, bark
Bricks, slabs, rubble, and hardcore materials
Garden furniture, plant pots, or patio materials
Why Skip Hire is the Best Option for your Garden Waste
Do not be tempted with the man with the van. Please remember it is twice the price. You must pay a separate fee for the labour costs and the disposal of the garden waste based on the amount. Skip hire, on the other hand; charges are much reasonable rate even for big garden waste clearance. You can have a thorough clear up of your space without the outrageous price.

Going the bin collection route means compliance to several things such as:
Waiting for the right day of the week
Waiting for the right hour of the day
Positioning the bin on the footpath next to the curb
Not blocking pedestrian pathways or vehicle access
Making sure the bin handle faces the house
Bagging all that loose rubbish
And not overloading the green bin

Skip Hire Near Me!
Hire the right skip provider. Let them deal (us) with your green and garden waste instead. Here are some tips so you can save money and energy.
Choose a skip hire service provider that offers a variety of skip hire sizes.
Consider any possible means to break down large and bulky garden waste. This can be chopping, cutting, snapping, folding, etc. This will allow you to hire a smaller and cheaper skip.
Don’t include garden waste that can be recycled or composted. These include weeds, leaves, twigs, etc. Doing so won’t add to the weight of your skip.
If you have a lot of logs or timber in your garden waste load, sell them instead. Check out community sites to find people who still use wood-burning fires or stoves in their homes.
Take note of the list of common and important items you are not allowed to put on a skip. This will prevent waste of time and energy.
