Following a flood, there is so much to consider to enable a property owner to be dry and clean. SKIP HIRE  and GRAB HIRE services will help a fast recovery for organisations, communities, businesses and individuals suitable to move back in. 

The recent weather that Storm Angus has bought with it on the South coast of England, especially Somerset;  Taunton, Wellington, Yeovil, Tiverton,  Chard…. through to Exeter. The National Flood Forum is a charity that provides support and advice to communities and individuals about flooding. There site is good about flood prevention and insurance but Wasteology want to offer a practical solution to quick clear up.


Regardless of Insurance

It is the responsibility of the property owner to protect their properties from risk of flooding. BUT if you have suffered water damage then flood restoration for either domestic or commercial buildings requires some form of waste that needs to be treated legally by a waste management company. Wasteology Limited is a fully licensed waste management company that is legally allowed to collect and treat waste. 

Domestic Flood Damage

Wasteology recommended a typical builders 6 yard skip for most domestic properties. For mixed bulky waste then the cost to Taunton would be : £220 + vat ( all in is £264 for 10 days hire with no plasterboard allowed in the mixed waste) for further quotes of different sized skips and different locations please follow this LINK for an instant quote.

Commercial and Industrial Flood Damage Restoration

One of the most popular options in most cases is a typical builders 6 yard skip, for mixed bulky waste. As an exam plea 6 yard to Taunton will cost  £220 + vat ( all in is £264 for 10 days hire with no plasterboard allowed in the mixed waste) for further quotes of different sized skips and different locations please follow this LINK for an instant quote.

However, for commercial and industrial property owners/landlords there can be many other choices of containers. Our team will advise the best solution. Here are some of the services which are on offer to clear Industrial and commercial sites:

  1. Small and large size skips: SKIP HIRE INFORMATION
  2. Larger Skips are called Roll On Roll Offs here is some more information on this option: RORO INFORMATION
  3. If access is difficult for a vehicle to drop off or collect a skip is not possible then GRAB HIRE is available to remove waste of various loads. Not just large quantities, part loads are acceptable: GRAB HIRE INFORMATION
  4. Small waste collections can be resolved with having a tough bag that carries a tonne of waste. These are sometimes known as Dumpy bags/ Bulk bags, tonne bag or jumbo bag. These bags are £5 each with a charge for collection based on haulage and weight.
