Loading Your Skip and Your Obligations as
Skip Hirer.


Please ensure the skip is loaded safely.

Your Barton skip should be loaded level to the top of the skip, if the skip is over loaded the driver is within his rights to refuse to take it or remove any waste from the skip to ensure it is safe to take on the public highway.

 

Barton Skips

 

 

As a Hirer, You Must Not...

 

Move the skip from its delivery position
Overload the skip (or additional charges may be made)
Interfere with the mechanism of the equipment
Leave hazardous material or chemicals in the skip
Set fire to the waste in your skip
Put any hazardous waste in the skip including but not limited to, fridges, freezers, tyres, paint, batteries, fluorescent tubes,

televisions, PC monitors and asbestos
Let waste exceed the height of the skip
 

Your Waste, Your Responsibility


You are legally responsible for the contents of the skip you hire and have a duty of care, You must ensure that the waste disposed of in the hired skip is suitable for general disposal and that the skip is not overloaded. If you are sharing a skip with another person you will also need to ensure that their waste is suitable as the hirer is responsible for the skip.
 

Hazardous Waste

 

We do not take any waste deemed as being hazardous.
 

Overloaded Skips

 

An overfilled skip is a hazard. The skip lorry may struggle to lift the skip and cause damage to the ground under the jack legs.  Overfilled skips are a danger to other people as waste can fall from the skip and cause fatal injuries as the skip is being transported. The contents of a skip should not exceed the height of the skip’s walls. (wooden boards or panels up the sides are not acceptable)

If your skip is overloaded, the driver reserves the right to either remove the excess waste from the skip, or refuse to remove the skip altogether. The latter will incur a minimum £50.00 wasted journey charge.
 

Delivery

 

The vehicle that will deliver your skip will be an 18 ton lorry. Please ensure that your driveway is suitable for the weight of the lorry and load.
 

Please consider the following:


Width of gates, Walls/fences that may hinder delivery, Overhanging trees/wires, Telegraph poles, Block paving/tarmac drives, Manhole/Drain Covers
 

Barton skip and grab hire limited take no responsibility for any damaged caused during the delivery or collection of a skip.
