Starting to Think About Clearing up Your Garden?

When you are considering a garden clearance, figuring out how you will clear all the waste can be a daunting task. Fortunately, skip hire companies like us, offer an affordable, hassle-free garden clearance service. Below are some tips and considerations that should think about when planning a garden waste collection.

Find out how long your garden will clearance take

You should have a rough idea of the duration the clearance will take before planning anything. Knowing the exact size of the task you’ll be dealing with is important to your planning, particularly if it’s an overgrown garden. You should give yourself ample time to finish the job at hand. Be realistic when it comes to your working pace. Taking on too much quickly is not a good idea as you will put pressure on yourself. You can measure out a small portion of your garden, then time how long it will take you to clear it. Multiply this time to get the time you will need to clear the rest of the garden.

Separate your waste types

The next step is to know how you’ll dispose of the loose pieces of grass produced when clearing. Separate the garden waste into two different types of waste: Green waste and general waste. Green waste is the waste that will come from your garden, including weeds, shrubs, bushes and grass. Most councils offer green waste collection for free, allowing you to save money as you will only need a small mini skip. General waste, on the other hand, consists of any item you have placed in your garden. This can include plant pots, old shed or old garden furniture. Identify items that you want to throw away, sell or keep to avoid disposing of something of value. Don’t place hazardous waste such as paint tins in a skip.

Reduce bulky waste volumes

Most waste removal companies will charge you based on the size of your garden waste and how much waste the skip will take to fill.  This will be an easy task once you have separated your green waste. You will be able to decrease the volume of your waste items, such as branches and hedge cuttings, much easier than large items. The bulkiness of the waste will also determine what waste service suits you, particularly the size of skip you need.

How to choose the right method of waste disposal

Once you have completed the aforementioned steps, choosing the right service will be easy. The options include:

Skip hire

If you will take more days to complete, then a skip is the best disposal option. It’s suitable for both general and green waste, and skips are available in a variety of sizes – from 4-yards to 12-yards – to suit your waste removal needs. Keep in mind that you will need space to put a skip on your property. If you will place the skip on a public road, you will need a permit.

Man and van rubbish clearance

Suitable for those looking for an urgent waste clearance option, man and van rubbish clearance is a cheaper alternative. This service includes labour, meaning that you will not have to load the waste yourself. Additionally, you don’t need a permit if you do not have space to put a skip.
