LKM Recycling offers waste skip & bin hire in the Kent area, providing our clients with a convenient and easy way to clear debris and rubbish. For projects expected to produce a large volume of waste, regular-sized rubbish bins are insufficient for clearing and transporting unwanted materials, and skips are a cost effective solution.
At LKM Recycling, we understand the special needs of various types of waste management. Trust our professionals and let us take it from here.
Professional Waste Handling
Large volumes of waste materials, especially if they are kept for prolonged periods can pose a serious health and environmental hazard. The rubbish serves as a breeding ground for insects and bacteria, and can produce unpleasant odours.
Skip bins are therefore essential tools for waste management, and are an efficient way to eliminate waste safely and effectively. We know all the proper waste handling procedures and can assist you in the appropriate disposal of a range of substances, at our licensed waste transfer station in Sittingbourne.
In the UK, skip and bin hire requires a licensed waste carrier to handle and transfer waste. You may also require a skip permit, but LKM Recycling can handle all of the licencing requirements for you, as we are a a fully licensed waste carrier with the ability to request permits for your skip.
Remember that skips cannot be placed on the pavement, and that they will require safety lights and markings while they are in use. The use of traffic cones, reflective tape and safety lamps at night should help prevent accidental collisions with vehicles.
As waste management professionals, we understand the needs and requirements of skip hire.
Choosing the Right Skip & Bin Hire Option
LKM Recycling offers a range of skip sizes to suit your needs. Skip bins of varying sizes are ideal for a range of uses. For example, mini skip bins, such as our eight-yard skips, are ideal for cleaning up waste from smaller projects, including kitchen renovations and home cleaning. Small skips are suitable for the transport of light materials, including empty boxes, tiles, cartons and screens.
Mid-sized skip bins such as our 10-12 yards are more suited to larger home renovations or small commercial construction projects. Mid-sized bins are convenient because they can carry heavier items such as concrete, timber and furniture, while still being small enough to not create any major obstructions.
Industrial-sized skip bins, which can measure up to 45 yards in length, are used for major construction and demolition projects. These skips have a roll on, roll off design for easy loading onto the lorry. Made to handle heavy industrial work, these skip bins carry the maximum capacity of waste material.
Limitations of Skip Bins
Though the use of skip bins are extremely versatile, several items cannot be placed in skips. Most types of hazardous or flammable waste require a different approach to disposal. Some of these items include oil, paint, solvents, gas bottles, batteries and explosives.
These materials need a separate disposal method to protect people and the environment. If you are unsure about the safety requirements of the items you wish to dispose, do not hesitate to consult LKM Recycling or visit our website for a full list of products we can and can’t accept in our skips.
