1 General
1.1 MaiaWaste© cannot and will not be held responsible or liable for any damage caused whatsoever if the hirer requests the company driver to take his vehicle off the Pubic Highway to deliver/position the skip in a location requested by the hirer or their representatives.

1.2 MaiaWaste© will not be liable for any loss or damage caused by failure to supply, or any delay in supply.

1.3 The time allowed for loading/unloading is 15 minutes. If the vehicle is kept waiting longer than this Maiawaste© reserves the right to charge waiting time at £25.00 per 15 minutes.

1.4 Maiawaste© reserves the right to charge the customer for all costs incurred as a result of a late cancellation of service by way of a wasted journey charge of £75.00, being the minimum charge depending on skip/lorry size and location, up to a maximum of £150.00.

2. Skip Hire
2.1 Skips can only be placed on the public highway by prior arrangement with Maiawaste©. A permit to site a skip on the public highway, including footpaths, is required from the relevant local authority. Maiawaste© can arrange the relevant permits to deposit a skip on the highway with the relevant local authority and a charge will be made. Charges vary with different local authorities. It is the hirers responsibility to make sure that all cones and lights are in place in line with the Highways Act 1980.

2.2 The hirer shall ensure that the skip is not overloaded by weight or by volume at the point of collection. All skips should be loaded so that they are not filled higher than the top of its sides. 7 tonnes for the 12yard, 16yard and 15 tonnes for 25yard up to 40yard roll on-off. Maiawaste© reserves the right to refuse to collect overloaded skips and any costs incurred due to unsafe loads/overloading (including wasted journeys) will be passed onto the hirer. Additional charges may be levied.

2.3 The lighting of fires in or near skips is strictly prohibited. The hirer will be liable for any loss or damage to the skip container (excluding fair wear and tear) during the term of the skip hire period and will be charged the current purchase price of the skip should it be lost or stolen whilst on the customers site. Once a skip has been placed, it shall not be repositioned without prior consent from Maiawaste©. Moving skips on site could result in the inability to collect skip or damage to the skip.

2.4 The maximum rental period is 7 days for “non-account” customers and 14 days for “account” customers. It is the responsibility of the hirer to request the collection within this time. Failure to do so will result in unannounced collection.

2.5 The responsibility for the skip remains with the hirer until collected by a Maiawaste© vehicle. Any skips which are removed, lost or stolen whilst in the control of the hirer will be charged at full and new replacement value.
