How can skip hire benefit your business at Christmas?

Christmas is arguably the busiest time of the year for businesses. And one of the biggest challenges faced by many (including those in Leyland) is waste.

In the UK alone, we produce 30% more waste during the festive season. From decorating stores to offering a gift-wrapping service, retail businesses are left with a lot more cardboard, plastic and metal to throw out on the run-up to Christmas – making skip hire a very appealing option.

5 benefits of skip hire for businesses:

  1. Health and safety

Hiring a skip allows you to contain waste – causing no problem to people who live or work in the local area. It prevents your staff and visitors from tripping over materials that are left on the ground.

Skip hire Leyland keeps rubble and packaging waste out of the public eye and eliminates problems for people who suffer from dust allergies and asthma.

  1. Convenience

The great thing about skips is that they can be placed anywhere, and a reputable company, like Bolton Skips, will ensure it’s done quickly and safely. Skips make no sacrifice to the beauty of an area and enable you to maintain a professional appearance.

Depending on the amount of waste your business generates, it may be worth arranging regular or ad-hoc skip collection. You can also schedule a new skip to be delivered when the full one is collected so you can continue disposing of rubbish throughout the busy holiday season.

  1. Reliability

Commercial skips are suitable for all kinds of waste and come in an assortment of sizes, such as:

  • 8yd enclosed skips
  • 10yd enclosed skips
  • 22-40yd roll on-roll off skips
  • Enclosed compactor bins

The right skip size will depend on how much rubbish your business generates over the festive season, the type of materials you’ll need to get rid of and the space you have available.

To find out which skip you need, call Bolton Skips on 01204 383 737 and they’ll help you to select the correct size.

  1. Cost efficiency

Disposing of waste on your own back may seem like a good idea at first, but could cost more in the long run – both in terms of money and productivity.

But skip hire Leyland is a much simpler alternative and allows you to relax in the knowledge that waste is dealt with quickly and handled carefully. It can also help you to avoid hefty fines for not complying with stringent regulations.

  1. Sustainability
