It is always recommended that you get several estimates when needing to contract a skip bin service. Rates and requirements vary from company to company. Taking a little extra time for fact finding will allow you to get the service most suitable for your needs while also getting the best possible price.
Some customers are also interested in companies that recycle. If this is important to you, be sure to ask. Getting recommendations from friends, neighbors, colleagues, or family is always a good idea when possible.
If you need to dispose of hazardous material you will need to check with your local municipality and see what the laws and regulations are for doing so. It is also necessary to ask the skip bin service if they are licensed and provide disposal services for such items or not. Things like mattresses, batteries, some chemicals, asbestos, tires and even a refrigerator are among the items included as hazardous waste.
