SUMMARY OF T J SKIPS LTD TERMS & CONDITIONS OF HIRE

Waste Regulations constantly change so please ensure that whoever fills the skip is aware of the following information.  Failure to read is not a valid reason for non-compliance.

THE DELIVERY

We would advise that someone is present at the time of delivery to ensure that skip is safely and correctly positioned.  However, should this not be possible, than our driver will place the skip in the most suitable and safe position available to them. Someone must be available if the skip is to be positioned on the road.

POSITION OF SKIP

Upon instructing T J Skips Ltd to leave the highway (including the positioning and siting of our container), you accept complete liability for any damage caused whilst our vehicle is off the highway. This will include and is not exclusive too damage to driveways, manholes, manhole covers and grass.

Our skips must NOT be moved by any other vehicle or machinery other than our own.

USING OUR SKIP

The use of our skip is to safely contain non-hazardous waste.  You the hirer, accept full liability that only accepted waste is placed inside our skips and in such a way as to not cause harm to person or the environment and to ensure that all waste is kept within the confinements of the skip’s boundary.  Fires either inside or close to the skip is forbidden, and any subsequent damage will be charged.

WE OPERATE A STRICT LEVEL LOADS ONLY POLICY

It is illegal to transport unsafe and/or overloaded containers. Any waste that exceeds the boundary of the skip will not be taken and will be removed by our driver.

CARPET – due to its heavy nature, we can only accept small amounts in our skips.

PLASTERBOARD must be clean, bagged and kept separate. Plasterboard cannot be mixed with other waste.

HARDCORE & SOIL – we are unable to accept loads where hardcore and soil are not kept separate.  You can place hardcore, soil and other wastes in the same skip but it must be placed in a way, where it can be easily separated after collection.  For example, please place soil in first, then hardcore and then other waste on top, thus limiting any chance of soil to become mixed with other wastes.

ADDITIONAL CHARGES

Skips found to contain non-accepted/hazardous waste or skips where plasterboard has been incorrectly stored will be subject to an additional charge.  The additional charge will depend on the quantity, extent of the waste and any additional haulage charge.  Please note that normally the skip will be returned to your site, where it will be your responsibility to safely remove the unaccepted item from the skip.
