What can I not put in my Skip?

 

We thought we’d save you the trouble of frantically googling mid-clear out and supply you with a basic list of what NOT to put in your skip.

If any of the items below are found in the skip there may be some charges that come with the disposal – this is because some of them are classed as hazardous or can’t be recycled as efficiently, if at all, so they would need to be disposed of in a different way to usual or go to landfill – both of which are more costly.

To prevent any of this happening we simply ask you to dispose of them separately – either by taking them to your local recycling centre, advertising them for sale/give away or giving the environmental agency a call for advice on what to do with them.

Please don’t put the following in your General Waste skip, or check with us before you do so we can tell you whether there will be any extra charges…

Large electrical Items including Televisions, Computer Monitors or Fridge Freezers

Paint tins containing residue (they MUST be washed out and completely free of paint)

Solvents

Liquids

Batteries

Fluorescent Tubing

Oil or Oil Containers

Asbestos

Gas Canisters & Bottles

Tyres

Plasterboard

Clinical or Medical Waste including Syringes

Mattresses

Carpet & Carpet Tiles
