FAQ

Q. What am I able to put in my skip?

A. Skips are used for the removal of non-hazardous waste such as building debris, household items and garden waste etc. There are strict guidelines on how to handle hazardous waste so you MUST NOT dispose of this in our skips. Please contact our team for any special/hazardous waste requirements and they will be happy to help.

When filling your skip, please ensure that it is level-loaded and no higher than sides of the skip. If a skip is overloaded or has waste hanging over sides, we will not be able to collect the skip and a wasted journey surcharge would be applied.

Q. What am I not able to put in my skip?

A. In addition to special & hazardous waste, we are not able to accept the following items:

  • Food Waste
  • Mattresses
  • Tyres
  • Paint Tins
  • Electrical “Weee” Waste
  • Fridges/Freezers
  • Plasterboard

If we collect a skip and it contains any of the above, we must apply a surcharge per item.

Q. What size of skip should I hire?

A. We have skips to suit every requirement, if you are unsure of what you need then give our team a call on 01324 811022.

Q. What types of skip can I hire?

A. We offer a variety of different skip sizes, from 6yd midi skip to a 40yd container-sized skip.

Depending on your requirements, we can provide open or enclosed skips. Open skips are more popular as they are easily filled however you may wish an enclosed skip for security or to protect waste from weather.

Q. What will happen to my waste?

A. On returning to our yard with your skip, your waste will be brought back to our state-of-the-art recycling facility. The waste is then segregated and processed to ensure we recycle as much as possible. This helps us with our aim to achieve sending zero waste to landfill. You can rest assured that your waste will be disposed of correctly and in accordance with all SEPA regulations.

Q. Where can I put my skip?

A. All skips must be placed in a driveway, garden or other part of your own property. If it is not possible to do this, you must speak to your local council to obtain a skip permit. This must be arranged by the hirer and be in place prior to us delivering your skip.

When skips are being placed on a driveway, particularly monoblock, you may wish to put boards/batons down for the skip to sit on. Likewise, if your driveway is made up of slabs, we recommend the skip be sited at the start of the drive to prevent the truck driving on the slabs.

Q. What is hazardous waste?

A. There are many different types of special/hazardous waste which cannot be placed in one of our skips without prior arrangement. Below is an example of common types of hazardous waste:

  • Corrosives
  • Biological waste
  • Medical waste
  • Laboratory waste
  • Gas canisters
  • Oils
  • Fuels
  • Fridges | Freezers
  • Asbestos
  • Explosives

Please contact our team to discuss your hazardous waste requirements.
