Common Risks Associated With Skip Overloading

When hiring your skip for waste disposal, it’s important to understand the risks posed by overloading. Overloading a skip can cause many issues for skip hire companies; threatening the environment and road safety. It may also incur additional charges for the customer
 
Please see below for a breakdown of concerns associated with skip overloading:
 

1. Weight 

 

A skip filled beyond it’s recommended capacity becomes excessively heavy. Due to this, it may be difficult and unsafe for your skip hire company to remove from your property and/or designated skip area, lift onto the skip vehicle and transport. The excess weight may cause damage to the skip vehicle and, in much more extreme cases, potentially cause a driving accident whilst in transit. To ensure the safety of all parties, we condemn skip overloading and ask customers abide by the weight limits to prevent skip overload.

2. Waste falling off the vehicle whilst in transit

 

Another issue that arises through skip overload is the increased probability of your waste falling off the skip whilst in transit. An overloaded skip is likely to cause littering as overloaded waste contents spill into the road; posing safety hazards for other road users and pedestrians. Not only does this compromise the well-being of other road users, but it also presents the possibility of the skip hire company to incur littering fines and sanctions. To avoid this, it is essential your loaded waste does not exceed the designated capacity line and is properly secured.

3. Environmental Concerns

 
Overloaded skips pose threats to the environment. If exceed and overloaded waste falls off the skip whilst in transit, it may cause rubbish pollution in surrounding land or waterways. This threatens the local ecosystem, can contaminate natural resources and negatively impact the environment. To protect the local environment and reduce risk of pollution, it is important customers refrain from overloading their skips when hiring a skip.
 
By understanding the consequences of overloading skips, you can contribute to a safer, cleaner, and more sustainable waste management process. Remember to follow the guidelines provided by the skip hire company regarding weight limits and filling capacity to facilitate the safe and responsible disposal of waste materials. Let’s prioritize road safety, environmental protection, and compliance with regulations to create a better and cleaner community for everyone..

Furthermore, it is vital customers ensure that their skips are not overloaded so we can all contribute to environmental protection and road safety.
