    Once you’ve identified an approved and licenced skip hire Derby company, like Colson, hiring a skip is simply a case of giving them a call and providing the details of your requirements and delivery address.

    In some cases, it will be possible to deliver your skip on the same day that it’s ordered, but usually, it will be delivered the following day. Since most reputable skip hire firms can take credit card details when you order, you may not even have to be at the premises when your skip is delivered.

    Bear in mind, though, that skip delivery lorries are large vehicles, so it will be necessary to ensure that appropriate access is available to the delivery driver.

    If you didn’t specify a collection date when you ordered your skip, arranging collection when your project is complete is simply a case of calling our team to let us know when your skip is ready to be collected. We can organise a pick up time in a prompt fashion.

    As with delivery, most skip hiring companies will aim to collect your skip at the earliest opportunity, generally the day following your request. Skip hire Derby is a fairly simple process, all in all. Through communication with our friendly specialists, hiring a skip can be made even easier. Specifying your requirements, time brackets and the type of waste will be key to a successful pickup.

    Did you know that the construction industry is the UK’s largest user of natural resources and produces a huge amount of waste? Roughly, 25 million tonnes of construction waste is disposed to landfill each year! That’s why there are important initiatives in place that look to reduce, reuse and recycle before reaching the point of disposal.

    Our experts can offer advice on the types of waste included and deposited via a construction project. Being such a vast industry that uses various materials on a daily basis, it is fully understandable that some companies may not want to handle their own waste, which is where our skip hire Derby service becomes extremely handy.

    If you’re a kitchen fitter, a builder or a bathroom installer, then you would also be able to utilise a service such as commercial skip hire Derby These sorts of jobs can produce a large amount of waste from within the home and you need to ensure you’re removing the waste in a responsible way!

    Renovation may also be carried out on the scale of large commercial projects in massive buildings, such as the installation of hospital vinyl flooring. For big and tricky jobs like these, you will likely need the assistance of a commercial waste disposal contractor. The various waste that can be created in such a vast range of industries can be tricky to manage, so utilising our skip hire Derby can be the difference between correct waste management and potential fines.

    Where your waste goes after it is taken away by a skip hire service depends on who removes it for you. As a very environmentally conscious company, Colson Transport aims to recycle as much waste as is possible to do. Our recycling rates are extremely high and something we are proud of, especially due to the range of waste we handle.

    What is not possible to be recycled will be disposed of carefully and responsibly, because we understand that failure to do so can be highly damaging to our environment. Rest assured, using our skip hire Derby service will allow you to not only free space, provide correct waste management but also do your part in protecting the planet.

    The European Waste Catalogue lists approximately 650 different waste types. Those that are suffixed with an asterisk are considered hazardous.  In some instances, there are hazardous and non-hazardous entries for a specific type of waste.

    • Electrical Waste (WEEE)
    • Animal Waste

    • Lighting
