All our skips are hand sorted at our purpose built licensed waste transfer station. We will segregate and remove all waste types possible for bulking to recycling facilities, the remaining waste is taken to an alternative transfer facility. We do not take our waste direct to landfill.

Ask first, don’t pay later!

If you place any non-conforming waste in the skips they are deemed to be contaminated- they may incur extra handling charges and/or disposal charges therefore please ask our admin team for advice first. With strict traceability procedures you can be assured that we know the origin of any waste received and assign any additional charges accordingly.

If you suspect you any have asbestos containing materials including cement roof sheeting, gutters, downpipe, soffit, fascia, insulation board from around electrical units or fireproofing stairs etc. ask us for a material test – at a cost of £48 each this is much cheaper than contaminating the rest of the skip as hazardous waste. Please read our skip terms and conditions for more information.
