Due to the nature of our business it is not possible for us to give you an exact
delivery time, although we will always try our best to fit in with your plans.
Please ensure that the agreed position for the skip is clear of any obstruction.
Skips must be placed on private property: this may be on a driveway,
hard-standing or garden area. Skips may not be placed on the public highway
(e.g. road, grass verge, pavement) as we no longer deal with road permits
issued by the council.
If it is not possible to site the skip on private property, we can offer either
a Wait & Load or a Man & Van service. In this case we would bring either a skip
or an open-backed Transit Van to your site. In the case of Wait/Load, you would have 30 mins
to load the skip - should it take longer than 30mins a waiting charge will apply.
With the Man/Van service, the driver will assist you to load your waste onto the van.
Skips must always be level loaded; our drivers will refuse to collect overloaded
We will accept fridges, freezers, television sets and other electronic consumer goods
without extra charge as long as they are placed on top of the load without overloading the skip.
As a result of recent changes to Landfill Tax rules, we no longer accept any
turf, soils, subsoils or plaster in skips which are hired for "mixed waste". Similarly,
any waste normally classified as "mixed waste" must not be placed into skips which have been
hired for inert earth and hardcore. Failure to adhere to this rule will result in the total contents
of the skip being charged on a per-tonne basis, as the resultant contamination will prevent us
from recycling the waste and require it all to go to landfill, which is not only counterproductive
but also very expensive.
Plasterboard is now classified as hazardous waste, and may not be mixed with ANY other waste.
However, we will accept plasterboard without any extra charge as long as ALL of the following
conditions are satisfied: The skip must have been hired as a mixed waste skip,
the plasterboard must be unlined (i.e. not backed by foam or tiles), it must all
be placed in strong rubble bags or equivalent (not kitchen bin bags),
and the bags must then be placed on top of the load without overloading the skip.
If you have more plasterboard to dispose of than can easily be accommodated by this process
then ask us about a plasterboard-only skip, which is more cost effective for larger projects.
The following items must not be put into skips: asbestos, tyres, gas bottles, toxic substances, batteries,
or fluorescent tubes.
Special disposal of these items can be arranged.
In no circumstances should a fire be started in a skip.
