Skips are used for the removal of non-hazardous waste such as building debris, household items and green waste etc. If you need to dispose of hazardous waste you need special permits and containers. It is illegal for you to mix hazardous waste with non-hazardous waste.
There are two types of skips - covered and open. Open skips are the most commonly used; however, covered skips, in which the contents are protected from weather conditions, can be arranged at extra cost.
Your waste will be processed at an authorised treatment facility according to all UK and EU legislation.
If you require a detailed summary of what happens to your waste we can provide this information for a fee.
We can take items that cannot be recycled but there may be an additional charge. Please call us for more details.
You can keep a maxi (8 tonne) skip for up to 7 days and a midi (4 tonne) skip for up to 5 days. You may be able to keep a skip longer if you notify us in advance of the day your skip is due to be collected but you may incur additional cost as a result of this. Please contact us as soon as possible (telephone 0151 933 0308 or email firstname.lastname@example.org ) if you wish to keep the skip longer.
If the skip is full and ready to be collected before the scheduled pick up day, ring us on 0151 933 0308 and we will collect the skip as soon as we can. During busy periods it may take us a working day or two to actually collect your skip. Please note, we are unable to collect skips on a Saturday afternoon or Sunday.
