Just because we’ve experienced a highly unusual and challenging year in2020 thanks to COVID-19, it doesn’t mean that our environmental responsibilities have been put on the back burner.
In this article, the team at Leyland Skip Hire – waste disposal specialists offering skip hire in Leyland, Horwich, Chorley and other locations across Lancashire and Greater Manchester, offer advice regarding proper recycling in 2021.
Practice Social Distancing and Sanitizing
While there has been some progress when it comes to fighting the coronavirus, we’re not out of the woods just yet.
This means that, for the foreseeable future, Leyland Skip Hire team members will follow strict regulations regarding the wearing of protective equipment, hand washing and sanitizing and proper social distancing – whether we’re providing skip hire Bolton, Chorley or anywhere else.
We’re asking you to stay safe too. We recommend wiping down the handles of your recycling bins whenever they are touched, and, if you opt for skip hire, keeping your social distance from team members wherever possible – so that everyone remains safe and comfortable.
Double Check What You Put In
While most local authorities are pushing to be able to recycle as much as possible, there are still certain items that cannot be disposed of this way. If you are unsure about whether something should go in your recycling bin, be sure to look it up online first.
The same goes for any skips you hire. Whether you use our skip hire in Preston, Wigan or any location nearby, there are certain items that cannot be placed inside – mainly for safety and environmental reasons. These items include:
- Medical waste
Cut Down on Single Use Plastics
A good target for 2021 is to keep an eye on your single use plastics. In 2020, through concerns about contact-based COVID-19 infections, many supermarkets and their delivery services resorted to packing items in plastic bags once more.
It’s important that we now try to turn our attention back to the non-recyclable items we use and try to cut down once again.
Choose the Best Option
If you’re disposing of larger amounts of waste, you may not be aware that a skip could be the most environmentally friendly resource for your needs.
Our waste disposal experts work hard to ensure that each item you place in your skip will be sorted and disposed of in the most environmentally friendly manner possible, with as little as possible going to landfill.
By choosing skip hire in Wigan, Chorley or any of the surrounding localities, you’re likely to have a lower environmental impact than you would driving back and forth to the tip.
Wherever you arrange skip hire Bolton, Wigan, Leyland or further afield – you can rest assured that our team will keep environmental issues at the heart of what we do.
