3 Ways to Safely Dispose of Construction Waste

Skip Hire
Skip hire is the simplest, easiest way of dealing with large quantities of construction waste. We will deliver your skip, you can fill it with waste, and we'll take it away. No fuss and a compete dedication to disposing of your waste in an environmentally-friendly way as possible. You can hire skips in a wide range of sizes and styles to suit your needs.

You can also get temporary licences to positions your skip on the main road outside your property, if you're limited on space.

However, please be aware that there are some skip hire companies with extremely poor customer service. The best thing to do is to find a relatively large company in your local area. For example, if you're looking for Skip Hire in Oxford, or anywhere across the South of England, R Collard is here to help.

Grab Bags
Grab bags are a practical alternative to traditional skip hire. Rather than being large, bulky waste containers, grab bags can be folded up and carried to the most beneficial position. They are specifically designed to handle large weights and are typically used for construction waste such as aggregates, dirt, broken cement and more.

Grab bags offer a wider range of versatility than skips, meaning you can often position them in your garden, or in a small lawn. They are often lifted by light-weight cranes, meaning they can be collected from various points on your property, even with limited access.

Before choosing where to position your grab bag, it is worth asking your provider if it will be liftable from that point. There are few things worse than packing a grab bag and having to unload it again before removal.

With covid currently raging, self-tipping isn't a practical option for most people. However, when we're vaccinated and the UK government allows the re-opening of recycling centres, self-tipping can be a useful method of dealing with small amounts of construction waste. If you have a van, or even a car with strong suspension, you can transport small quantities of construction waste yourself.

While it is more time-consuming, difficult and often more expensive than the other methods of construction waste removal, it is still an option for small DIY projects.
