Cumbria

Located in North West England, Cumbria is the third major county by area in the country and features a populace of less than 500,000. This offers it a staggeringly low populace density of only 190 people per square mile. Cumbria is bordered by North Yorkshire, County Durham and Northumberland. Cumbria has simply one city, Carlisle, with Barrow-in-Furness slightly behind in population size. In fact, there are only 5 towns with a populace over 20,000 and a lot of the county is non-urban. With a selection of household upgrades necessary for the Cumbria region, be sure just to work with reputable professionals to be certain reassurance and a top quality final result.

FAQs

Can you put paint in a skip?

There are a wide range of household rubbish and wastes you can put in a skip. But unfortunately though, paint cans and leftover paints isn’t one. Furthermore, not only is a liquid paint restricted from skips and landfills, but they are also banned by the council. Frustratingly, because it’s hazardous to the environment and blockages it can create in the pipe, pouring paint right down the drain is never an option as well. So what then is the best way to get rid of your leftover paint? Surprisingly, you have quite a number of options which we’ll share with you.

• Is the paint unused and unopen? For unopened paints, you can simply return them back to the seller either for an exchange or for a refund. Obviously, this will require a receipt and if unavailable, then you might want to consider the other options below.

• Is it just little paint leftover? Since it has been specifically banned from skips and it’s just a small amount of paint, you can get a bit creative with the disposal method. Simply get a cardboard or other papers, paint it with the remaining paint and dry it out. Once dried, you can then dispose the cardboard or paper alongside other permitted wastes in the skip.

• Is it a large amount of paint? For large amounts, you can contact some of your friends or family who might need it to get the paints off your hands. If you are unable to dispose any or all, there are online platforms like Freegle or Freecycle where there are people willing and ready to get leftover paints in large quantities.

• Is it unusable? If positive, then the giveaway option is completely neutralized. The best bet here is to leave your paint out to dry if it has gone past its usable days, then take it to a household waste recycling centre.

How much is a mini skip?

Are you about to do a small clean or clear out of your home or garden? Or perhaps you’re just interested in hiring a mini skip for other reasons. One thing you might just be worried about is the cost of hiring one. This is very common as there are tight controls over modern waste disposal methods and knowing the cost of a mini skip hire is definitely a step in the right direction. The small skips are best suited to domestic projects such as house or garden cleans or clearances where only a little waste is generated. And as such, knowing the sort of waste you need to be disposed, the mini skip can be very efficient and great value for money. They represent an affordable option to get rid of both waste and rubbish in or around the house. A mini skip can also be utilized as secondary skip for waste or rubbish that needs separate disposal from the other wastes like a plasterboard.

The mini skip hire cost can be very affordable depending on what you need to be disposed. Generally, with a well sorted waste, a mini bin can costs within the range of £150 to £200. Even more so with green waste as these are the most environmentally friendly waste or rubbish to dispose.

However, on the other hand, wastes that are harmful or hazardous to the environment like asbestos requires a special treatment and as such, are generally more expensive to have disposed. By going the extra mile to hire a professionally supplied mini skip, you can be rest assured that your waste will be properly taken care of and constitute no harm to both persons and the environment at large. To avoid spending much more than needed, try to figure out if your rubbish or waste is small enough for a mini skip before hire. Click here to learn more about skip prices.

How big is a 4 yard skip?

Generally, 4-yard skips are basically designed for small clean or clear out projects or residential use. If you want to carry out a small renovation task or to clear out your home, you simply can not ignore the disposal of your unwanted waste. You’ll save yourself some time, money and potential accidents by hiring a 4-yard skip that will do the job effectively. We are all aware how time consuming it is making several trips to the local waste disposal centre.

When talking about the size of a 4-yard skip, it runs beyond its capacity. Skips of small sizes can be easily accommodated in not too large spaces which can be in the garden or driveway which saves you the stress and money of having to acquire skip hire permits.

If you’d like to know the the size of a 4 yard skip in metres, we’ve got you fully covered for both imperial and metric! The answer is provided below:

Imperial - Width 4’3, Height 3’2

Metric - Width 1.29m, Height 0.972m

It is, however, important to take note that when hiring a skip the measurement might be a bit tricky. The ‘4 yard’ term implies the capacity of the skip and not the length. The actual length of a 4 yard skip is only 6 feet or 2 yards. As a result, before you hire a skip, there’s the need to be clear as to the measurement you’re looking for. Otherwise, you might end up hiring the wrong skip and having to get another. Not good for your pocket, right? Well, that’s why we’ve provided this answer to help you in the best possible way!

Can I put a skip on the road?

Apart from the cost of hiring a skip, the area in which to place the large item is another major concern for individuals looking to hire a skip. So if you’re wondering whether you can place your hired skip on the road, there are four legal requirements that applies and must be complied with for your protection in the situation whereby a third party accident takes place. Deciding to overlook these conditions can lead to a fine or forceful removal of the skip by the local council.

Here are the compulsory legal requirements that must be fully complied with:

• Get A Permit

The local council gives out a permit for skips to be placed on the road. This permit must be acquired and the cost may vary depending on the local council in your area.

• Illuminate The Skip

Since the skip is to be placed on the road, then it’ll only make sense to have it illuminated at night or in low lighting situations for safety of all road users. According to the law, lights must be positioned at each end of the skip to be easily spotted.

• Use Cones

According to the law, a minimum of two (2) cones must be placed on the skip’s approach side for the protection of all road users.

• Comply With The Skip Requirements

You can’t place just any skip you like on the road. By the law, there are certain conditions that must be met by the skip itself before placement. It must be painted with the yellow colour on the sides, have both the owner’s name and phone number clearly written on it and must also possess a BS AU152:1970 complying red and yellow fluorescent reflective marking which is compulsory to be acquired within two (2) working days upon filling.
