GENERAL In these conditions: “Owner” means LTR (Let’s Talk Recycling). “Hirer” means the person or company using the services of the Owner in respect to the hire of skips and disposal of contents or sale of materials. “Vehicle” means the vehicle which is delivering or collecting the skip which is the subject of the contract. “Driver” means the driver of the Vehicle. “Site” means the place where the skip is deposited on the direction of the Hirer.
These conditions apply to all skip hire contracts with the Owner. The booking, instruction to deliver or use of the skip (including the placing of any object in the skip) by the Hirer or anyone acting on their behalf, whichever is earliest, indicates acceptance of these conditions. The Owner may without prior notice collect the skip at any time should any of these conditions be breached.
A signature is not required upon any documentation as proof of delivery or collection of skips or goods; however these terms and conditions still apply.
These conditions may not be altered or varied unless authorised in writing by the Owner.
The Owner will use its reasonable endeavours to comply with the Hirer’s requirements.
The Owner will not be liable in any way for any delay or failure to perform its obligations, or any loss, damage or delay incurred by the Hirer resulting from circumstances beyond the Owner’s reasonable control which will include, without limitation, labour disturbance, accident, failure of services, breakdown of plant or machinery, fire or flood, acts of God, unforeseen or abnormal conditions or by any act or neglect on the part of the Hirer.
Plasterboard must be segregated from other waste in the skip by either placing it on top of the other waste in the skip where it may be easily lifted off or placed into a dumpy bag which can be provided on request.
From the time the skip is deposited until it is picked up again by the Owner, the Hirer shall ensure that:
In addition, the Company reserves the right to charge the Customer 8% per annum above the base rate of the Company’s bank (at the time of acceptance) for overdue payments and to withhold further deliveries or to cancel any unexecuted portion of any orders with the Company. The company also reserves the right to charge the customer for any and all costs incurred by the Company recovering overdue payments. The Customer shall under no circumstances be entitled to withhold payment.
The owner reserves the right to collect a fully loaded skip before the hire period has elapsed
