Able Skips ~ Providing Reliable & Affordable Skip Hire Services in Lancashire

Skip hire is the perfect solution for getting rid of garden waste

We all need to clean up and indeed, clear out our gardens from time to time. A lot of debris and mess can accumulate, whether due to various home improvement projects or just as a natural consequence of maintaining and looking after a garden.

Garden waste can take a wide range of forms – from grass, twigs, leaves and weeds to bricks, rubble, slabs and hardcore materials. Almost any unwanted materials that may result from activities in your garden can be described as garden waste, in fact – even plant pots and garden furniture.


But you don’t necessarily have to hire a skip, do you?

It’s true that there are other possibilities for the removal of your garden waste – such as a garden fire or getting in touch with professionals who specialise in taking away rubbish.

However, the first of those solutions is subject to strict rules, which mean that you can’t, for example, burn any of your garden waste if this could pose a risk to people’s health or cause inconvenience to your neighbours. Furthermore, even unintentional violations of such rules – as detailed here on the GOV.UK site – could result in you being fined as much as £5,000.

As for hiring a man with a van, this can be pretty expensive, given that you aren’t just paying for the van to take your waste away – you’ll also be forking out for the labour costs and the disposal of your rubbish. Waiting for your council to pick up your green bin is a cost-effective alternative, but you might be left hanging on for a while.

Why we can be the best garden waste removal option

Comparing all of these possibilities helps to make clear just how sensible skip hire is for garden waste clearance. Prices tend to be very reasonable even when you’ve got a lot of waste to get rid of, and when you hire your skip from Able Skip Hire Ltd, you can have a skip on your drive in little more than 24 hours’ time, subject to availability.

It’s certainly more convenient than depending on your local authority’s bin collection service, which depends on you waiting for the right hour of the day on the right day of the week, as well as positioning the bin on the footpath next to the curb and not overloading it.

As for professional rubbish removal, yes, it’s hard to argue with the sheer convenience of such a service, but not all contractors are reliable. You also have a lot of choice when you opt for skip hire, given that the leading skip hire specialists tend to offer skips in a variety of sizes to suit the size of the task before you, including – in the case of Able Skip Hire Ltd – Mini, Midi and Maxi skips.

Remember, too, that if you are clearing out your garden as part of a wider home project, we operate our own recycling centre, so you don’t even have to worry about segregating your rubbish. It can all go in one skip, save for the disallowed items listed in our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section, which frees you from some of the work that you would otherwise have to do when hiring a skip.
