Where can the skips be placed?
Skips should be placed on private property. They cannot be placed on the highway without a permit and correct signage and lights – our skip hire specialists can arrange these for you should you require on road siting As the vehicles delivering to your house are very large, please ensure that there is sufficient access to the point where our skips need to be delivered. If you are unsure about access, please give us a call and we can provide you with the approximate dimensions of the lorry used to deliver the skip you require, smaller skips are delivered with smaller vehicles.
Please remember that due to the stabilising equipment on a skip lorry, damage can sometimes occur to the ground where the skip is positioned. This is especially applicable to block paved and soft tarmac drives. For more information on this please contact us.
Is my waste recycled?
Recycling is very important to Oldham Bros. We use both mechanical and hand sorting methods to ensure that we salvage as much reclaimable waste as possible. As about discounts for pre segregated waste, and single waste streams.
