The waste collector got shocked
You will get shocked to hear that once a whole caravan is twice the size of a skip found in a skip bin which become “Waste Worth Thousands”. Someone thought it a clever idea to get rid of that large caravan. For this purpose, a customer ordered a skip bin from a reputed skip hire company and did not specify the disposal of a caravan. When waste collectors came to pick the bin, they were amazed to see a whole 12 yard caravan in the skip.
The driver refused to take away the caravan, but the customer provided him with the list of prohibited items in which the caravan was not mentioned. It was decided that the customer would break the caravan into pieces that would fit in the bin and then be taken away by the company.
According to the driver, “I was unable to stop my laughter when I saw caravan in the skip. First I thought that my company played a joke with me”.
Skip Hire Company took the caravan, but being a company that offers Cheap Skip Hire Coventry services, we will suggest to customers that if there is any strange waste, please clearly mention it at the time of book. In this way, Skip Hire Company can guide you more appropriately.
Rapide Motorcycle Vincent HRD Series-A 1939
Yes, it is 100% true that another exciting and costly thing found in the skip bin was a Rapide Motorcycle Vincent HRD Series-A 1939. Fortunately, it returned to the owner, as a motorcycle could not be skipped. According to Skip Hire’s rules and regulations, it contains many things such as wheels and fuel that you cannot skip. On the other hand, it was so costly that it was a waste of money to dispose of such expensive things in a skip. After that, it was auctioned.

Money was a waste for someone
In many cases, people found money from old clothes or used bags, but it is unbelievable that someone threw away cash in garbage bags.
In 2018, a skip hire employee found £7000 in the trash bag, but it is not yet confirmed who threw this heavy amount in the skip bin. Skip hiring worker tried to find the owner of the money but failed, so he handover all cash to the police. “Money was not in good condition as many notes were wet, mouth eaten and cut”.
In 2017, a black handbag in the skip bin contained a gold necklace worth the US $280. The skip hire company contacted the customer to confirm the ownership of the necklace. The customer was shocked to know that his seven-year-old daughter threw away her mother’s handbag in the trash bin. After taking some evidence, the company returned it to the customer.
In 2015, a waste disposal worker found a high-heeled shoe full of €50 notes worth €1500. The worker tried to find the owner for seven days. Luckily, after his honest struggle, he found the amount’s owner. The customer’s daughter was the owner of the amount suffering from a disease.
We suggest that you keep a proper check and balance on your bin bags, especially if you little naughty kids at your home.
