Yes! We are operating within the government guidelines, providing contact-free skip delivery and collection. Clearouts and DIY projects can continue – without exposing yourself to the risk of infection at the dump.
Doing DIY During Lockdown?
Some of us are busier than ever. Working from home during lockdown, homeschooling children, discovering new passions and interests – and the weather’s been great, too!
You might have been inspired to do some sprucing up around the house or in the garden, but unsure about what to do with the DIY waste. Dumps are now open – but it’s a risky proposition for many reasons. The safest bet right now is still to hire a skip for DIY projects.
Contactless Customer Service
We’re continuing to deliver to our customers, with contact-free delivery and collection. You could hire a skip for fast delivery if you’re storing it off-road, on your own property – and we supply all sizes from mini skips to 35 cubic yard RORO skips!
With contactless delivery and collection, we’ll ensure the safety of you and our team – and we have some rules in place to take extra precautions.
Anyone on our team with the symptoms of coronavirus, or living with someone who shows symptoms, has been asked to stay at home. They must self-isolate, in line with government guidelines.
Cleaning and Hygiene
We’re frequently washing our hands – using either soap and water or an alcohol-based hand sanitiser. With coughs and sneezes, we’re following the ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’ method. All surfaces are being decontaminated and regularly cleaned, and we’re using precautionary measures when handling skips and the waste placed within them.
Staying Up to Date
Like everyone during the outbreak, we’re keeping a close eye on the situation, monitoring any changes so we’re ready to adapt. With crowded dumps and recycling centres now open, we know that our contact-free skip hire is still the safest way to dispose of waste.
Dumps Open, but Risk of Infection is High
During a viral pandemic, crowds are a major concern. Social distancing measures, which are placing recycling centre users 2 metres apart, have already caused long traffic queues in many areas. Risk of infection from contact with others is high, as dumps are close-quarters environments with lots of handling between different people.
The risk of infection will be too high for many in need of waste disposal services.
Local authorities are urging users to stay away from dumps. Skip hire is the safest alternative to get rid of your lockdown waste.
