To find out which recyclable and non-recyclable items you may dispose of in the skip, please read our terms of hire.
Hazardous waste is defined under environmental legislation and covers waste that contains substances or properties that are harmful to human health or the environment. Anything defined as hazardous waste cannot be put in a skip for general waste. If you’re unsure about the classification of your waste, please contact us and if your waste is hazardous we can arrange specific disposal.
Yes. Our lorries can lift skips over a wall/fence/bush of up to 1m high so that skips can be placed in gardens.
You should never fill your skip above the height of its sides. If you exceed this height then you risk the skip lorry driver refusing to collect your skip or asking you to empty out all the extra stuff before he removes it. This is because overloaded skips are dangerous to transport since stuff could fall out on route and cause damage or injury to others.
Driveways made with soft tarmac or block paving have the potential to be damaged by skips. This can easily be avoided by placing scaffolding planks or big pieces of wood to rest the skip. Bear in mind also that skip lorries are heavy and when they take away your filled skip, they are even heavier. Skip lorries use stabilisers when they load the skip. These metal legs exert significant pressure on the ground and can dent soft tarmac or break paving stones. If you are concerned about damage to your drive, always speak to the skip provider first for their advice on how to protect it.
