Wastes Collected in Skips

You can use your skip to recycle most general household, garden, construction, demolition and industrial wastes.

You can’t use it for asbestos and hazardous wastes such as oils, paints etc.

We are able to supply skips for the removal and safe disposal of cement based asbestos, including preparing the necessary paperwork for you.please see our Asbestos Disposal page for full details.

If you have hazardous waste, please ring us as we may be able to put you in touch with someone who can help you.

Fridges and Freezers can be put into your skip if you agree this with us first. There is an additional recycling charge for these items to cover the costs of treating the waste safely.

Please do not overload your skip as this can be a health and safety hazard to our drivers and other road users.
