This week I had to hire a skip. As any good arts and craft person will know, when you work on enough projects you generate a lot of waste! My wife often get’s annoyed with the amount of rubbish that I store away, well this month she decided it was time for a clear and and I must admit that I agree.
So the first question I had to ask was, how on earth are we going to get rid of all of this rubbish? We soon realised we could easily fill a skip with everything we had to get rid of, so we did just that, we hired a skip. We chose a company that offers skip hire Stoke on Trent because we had heard good things about them.
So what did I put in the skip I hired?
Well I mentioned in an earlier post how I’d been using a lot of wood in my recent projects and I had a lot left over. Well it took me by suprised just how much scrap wood and rubbish I had amassed, I knew that an ordinary bin bag wouldn’t do for getting rid of this amount of waste, I needed a skip, so I went to the guys that offer skip hire Stafford and they sorted me out with one.
If you’re thinking of having a good sort out like I have then I will give you one good tip about hiring a skip from any company and that’s make sure that you take into account the time that it takes to get a skip hire permit. I didn’t have enough room in my driveway or on my garden, so I had no choice but to put my skip on the road which meant that I had to wait an extra day for a permit and pay a little extra too.
After my huge clean out, it seemed like I had tonnes of room. Sure I was a little sad to see some of my uncompleted crafts projects get thrown away but it’s left me with a lot more room to work on new projects!
