Most people have the forethought to book a skip well in advance for home refurbishments, attic clear-outs and construction work.
But there are some big life events that are so exciting, you’d be forgiven for overlooking the amount of waste that needs to be collected and properly recycled.
So here are some of the most dramatic things most of us encounter at some point in our lives that tend to create a lot of rubbish which would be best handled by a skip hire service…
If you pack every single thing from your old house so you can take it all to the new one, it’s possible that you’re doing something wrong…
A new home means a fresh start, and as such, getting rid of all the stuff you’ve had in storage for years will allow you to move clutter-free (and save you money on removal services).
Use the big move as an opportunity to sort the genuine rubbish from the treasured items, and make it all the more simple with a skip on the driveway (rather than making several appointments and trips to the local recycling centre).
Of course, unless you’re moving into a brand new home, you’ll likely find at least one corner in your new place that the previous owner didn’t clear out properly and a mini skip will make light work of it. Plus, now you know exactly who to call!
A new little face in the house is cause for a lot of excitement in the family, but it should come as no surprise that you’re going to need a lot more space.
The spare room needs to be transformed into a nursery and chances are the old exercise bike and electric guitar you never got round to learning will be getting the boot.
Throwing away perfectly usable items is terrible for the environment, so it’s best to donate good quality things or maybe sell them on eBay and earn yourself a few quid.
But for all the genuine waste and things you simply don’t know what to do with, a trustworthy skip hire firm can take care of all the sorting and recycling for you.
It’s definitely a trying time for most parents when children leave to head off for university or simply decide it’s time for a home of their own.
But with fewer people living under one roof, there are probably a few big changes you’ll want to make that will lead to a proper clear-out one way or another.
Most will want to leave their room more or less as it is so the children always have a home to come back to. But for the more ruthless parent, this could be the golden opportunity to clear everything out of their old rooms to make way for that dream home gym or mini craft beer brewery.
The meat’s in the freezer, the barbecue has been given a trial run and your questionable novelty apron is clean and ready for the big day…
But did you consider the amount of waste you’re going to have on your hands after you’ve prepared the garden for the barbecue season?
Once all the weeding has been done and the broken garden furniture has been collected, you’ll likely have more mess than you imagined (and not the kind you want to be stuffing into your clean car to take to the recycling centre).

Deciding to share your life with another person is one of the biggest decisions you’ll make in your life, but remember, the perfect partner tends to come with a lot of stuff…
You’ve both got furniture, a lot of clothes, and probably even more useless things that simply won’t fit into your shared home together.
You’re not going to like it, but the reality is you’re going to have to say goodbye to a lot of things that don’t work in your new home (or simply don’t meet the love of your life’s exacting standards).
Once the inevitable blazing row is over and you’ve decided what’s going to survive the heartbreaking Squid Game your stuff must compete in before marital bliss can begin, book your skip at an unbeatable price and at least you won’t need to argue about money…
Very similar to the marriage clear-out in that you’re trying to hold onto as much of your stuff as possible, only this time it might be best to let a lot of it go…
Breakups can often require a bit of downsizing in order to move on with your separate lives, and you don’t need to drag out the process with multiple unpleasant trips to the tip.
Make a fresh start and get rid of anything that feels like baggage or might remind you of painful times; it could be just what the doctor ordered!
Is a spring clean a huge life event? Well, it doesn’t compare to a new baby, but if done properly, you’ll certainly feel a big transformation!
Although you’re probably well aware that a spring clean is going to generate a lot of waste, you might not realise quite how much…
If you’re going for the 100%, no-stone-left-unturned, ultra spring clean, you’re going to need somewhere to put everything you pulled out of the attic and garage.
Any skip size up to eight yards will comfortably fit on a standard driveway, ready for anything and everything (well, maybe not everything) you find on your minimalist mission.
There’s nothing quite like the feeling of a clean, clutter-free home, and skipping the trips to the recycling centre for a nice, simple solution to your waste management is the perfect way to finish the job on a relaxing high.
