WHY SKIP HIRE?

Whether or not you believe size matters, you have come to the right place.

With thirty years of experience in the waste management industry, Skip Hire has developed the resources and technical infrastructure capable of rendering services to large corporations, or individual households. Regardless of the non-hazardous waste that may be generated, it will be removed and safely disposed of at a licensed Government facility.

Our friendly staff are well trained and proud to wear their uniforms. They pride in providing services as quickly as possible, without causing disruptions to client’s daily routine.

ENVIRONMENT

Skip Hire’s Environmental policies are well documented and practised within the organisation.

The company’s core business is the rendering of waste management and environmental services, all of which are done to high standards and in accordance with the Licences issued by the Department of Waste Management and Pollution Control. We continually work towards improving our waste collection systems, making them as environmentally friendly as possible. We offer our clients advice on adopting the most practical waste management solutions to benefit their company and to lessen the impact of environmental pollution. Skip Hire staff receive annual refresher training in waste management and environmental conservation, and in terms of the Waste Management Act of 1998, are considered to be “Fit and Proper Persons”.

 

Our fleet of vehicles are registered and licensed as waste carriers by the Department of Waste Management and Pollution Control. This licence is renewable annually, ensuring that vehicles meet the strict criteria laid down by this Department. Our vehicles are also tested annually for roadworthiness, and thus meet the regulations of the Road Traffic Act. We dispose solid and liquid waste only at licensed disposal facilities. Medical waste is treated at a non-burn, environmentally safe facility. Our vehicles are regularly washed and disinfected to reduce the spread of flies and limit malodours. All residue water first passes through a drain separation system before it is discharged into the sewer system. Our in-house workshop ensures that preventative maintenance is carried out regularly on all vehicles according to specific schedules, thus eliminating oil and diesel leaks into the environment.
