The Benefits of Wait and Load Skips

Wait and load skips are a less burdensome alternative to traditional skip hire. If you have limited access for a skip or only require a short amount of loading time, wait and load skips may be the perfect option for you.

Benefit of Wait and Load Skips from Woodford Recycling

In this article, discover how you could benefit from a wait and load skip.

What is a wait and load skip?

Wait and load skips provide a quick and easy option for disposing of your waste. Unlike traditional skip hire, your skip supplier will deliver and remove your skip in one single trip, saving time and money

You will have a set time to fill the skip — typically 30 minutes, though this can vary. Remember to have all your waste ready and waiting when the skip arrives — you want to be as efficient as possible to ensure all your waste is removed.

The lorry driver will park as close to your waste as they can and, in some instances, help you fill the skip, though this will depend on the supplier. If you have a lot of waste to remove,  it may be worth getting a few extra hands to help out.

What are the benefits of wait and load skips?

  • There’s no need to have a bulky, unsightly skip remain at your property

We love skips, but even we can admit that they’re not the prettiest of things. By using wait and load skips, you’ll only have a skip outside your property for a short period of time.

  • Saves you money

If you don’t have a driveway, garden or any accessible private land, your only option for hiring a traditional skip is to keep it on a public road. Unfortunately, this requires you to obtain a skip permit. Usually a wait and load skip permit is cheaper than a regular skip permit, saving you money. You can check the various skip permit options on your local council’s website.

  • Your neighbours won’t fly-tip

It’s a common nuisance for neighbours and other passersby to throw their waste into your skip. With a wait and load skip, the driver will be with the skip at all times, so no one will be able to dump their waste. This removes the risk of contaminating the load with waste types not accepted by the skip hire company.
