Your Waste


Your Responsibility

You are legally responsible for the contents of the skip you hire. You need to ensure that the waste disposed of in the hired skip is suitable for general disposal and that the skip is not overloaded. If you are sharing a skip with a neighbour, you will also need to ensure that their waste is suitable.

Hazardous Waste

We do not take any waste deemed as being hazardous.


Overloaded Skips

An overfilled skip is a hazard. The skip hire lorry may struggle to lift the skip, and your overfilled waste can be dangerous to other people as the skip is being transported. The contents of a skip should not exceed the height of the skip’s walls. If your skip is overloaded, the skip lorry driver reserves the right to either remove the excess waste from the skip, or refuse to remove the skip altogether. The latter will incur a wasted journey charge.
