How do we Recycle?

Here at Balanced Budget Forever Skip Hire we have a shared Waste Transfer Station where we sort, process, and recycle the waste received. We try to recycle as much of the waste as possible to minimize the amount that has to be taken to landfills. We recycle around 85% of the waste which we receive.

  • Hardcore (bricks, concrete, rubble) – this is crushed on-site and sold as crushed hardcore.
  • Timber – this is either chipped on-site or taken to a local timber recycling centre where it is chipped and used to manufactured chipboard and other similar materials.
  • Metals – are sorted and recycled.

Important Information

Due to the nature of our business, it is not possible for us to give you an exact delivery time, although we will always try our best to fit in with your plans.

Please ensure that the agreed position for the skip is clear of any obstruction.

Skips must be placed on private property: this may be on a driveway, hard-standing or garden area. Skips may not be placed on the public highway (e.g. road, grass verge, pavement) as we no longer deal with road permits issued by the council.

We can offer a wait and load service, this is a less expensive alternative to organising a permit and can be an option if a permit is refused by the council. The driver would bring the skip to your site and you would have 30mins in order to load the skip. Should it take longer than 30mins a waiting charge will apply.

Skips must always be level loaded, our drivers will refuse to collect overloaded skips, and extra charges may be incurred. It is an illegal offense for our drivers to carry overloaded skips.

The following items must not be put into skips: asbestos, tyres, refrigerators, freezers, gas bottles, toxic substances, batteries, television sets, computer monitor screens, fluorescent tubes. Special disposal of these items can be arranged.

In no circumstances should a fire be started in a skip.

Damaged skips will be charged for.

Our responsibility for Waste Recycling with skip hire

Possibly the greatest reason for waste recycling is our own exploding population. Our stewardship of planet Earth is threatening the environment, which is something we’re only now becoming aware of. Increased awareness of spoiling our only home means waste recycling isn’t just something chic to do, but it’s an essential responsibility. Without some kind of waste recycling program, how can we expect to ensure a clean planet is there for our children.

It used to be called being green, environmentally friendly even. Times have moved on a bit and the common man is slowly becoming a part of the once exclusive green group’s intent for waste recycling. It’s a paradigm shift in the way society thinks, with waste recycling moving to the forefront of thinking rather than being part of the agenda of small groups. One major reason for the shift in thinking is communication, the observation of masses of waste accompanying our billions of bodies. There’s a point, perhaps not that far ahead, where our world is going to have trouble supporting us. Reports suggest waste dumps growing at an alarming rate and a society that’s, until now, been unaware of just how much we need waste recycling to reduce those dumps.

Technology and society combine to create amazing levels of convenience and comfort, with cell phones and computers connecting us to mountains of data. Unfortunately, they’re also part of the problem as well as informing people of the problem. Waste recycling is hard enough without so many products being made out of plastic that aren’t biodegradable. Drop a cell phone and travel forward in time a hundred years and the shiny plastic would still be laying there. It’s the same with plastic bags, breaking down eventually under direct sunlight, but releasing harmful toxins into the air and water.

Waste recycling has to cope with these problems, raising awareness for manufacturers and the public. If we want to be effective with our waste recycling habits, choose paper instead of plastic and develop a personal waste recycling program. Local authorities do what they can to aid in waste recycling, offering local services to dispose of aluminum cans, laptop and cell phone batteries that would poison the ground with harmful chemicals, but, in the end, it’s up to us to take up the slack, and do whatever we can for waste recycling. We have to take advantage of these waste recycling programs, become involved, split garbage into recycle piles for bottles and cans.

Waste recycling is starting to have a positive impact as news reports and worrying statistics hit us from all sides. More counties are introducing their own waste recycling schemes and doing whatever is in their power to join the battle. Information technology is hitting the problem on several levels, informing us of the need for waste recycling and reducing the amount of paper in use. Less trees are cut down for newspapers and magazines since news is so easily available on the internet. Waste recycling has a fighting chance of rescuing our planet from becoming a mountain of refuse, but there’s still the issue of population growth to reckon with. That’s another problem for another time. Let’s just hope we have the time.
