If you were to see how much trash your home generates in the space of a year or even a month, you would probably be horrified. One of the key characteristics of the modern age is the development of a waste disposal system that removes the waste from the city to outlying areas.
If you think of Dickens's descriptions of London, of the filthy streets and stinking sewers, you will be overcome by relief that we live in the modern age where hygiene is a serious concern. With the population of modern cities at an all time high, waste disposal has become even more important, even as it is put under increasing pressure.
One of the ways that waste is controlled in a city is through the use of skips. Mountains Boston Skip Hire is one such company that will provide you with a skip, should you need one.
Skips are used to dispose of large amounts of waste, more than just normal daily household waste. They are used by restaurants, big companies and of course by contractors.
If you walk down your street and you see a skip, the chances are that it is being rented either by the owners of the house or the contractors. They are using it as a safe and contained way to get rid of all the debris that is generated when you renovated a house for example.
