General Waste Skip Bin Hire Essentials

Please remember the following:

Avoid overfilling your skip. The contents of your skip bin should not exceed the height of its walls. It isn’t safe to transport skips that are overloaded due to the risk of material falling onto the road and presenting a hazard to other road users.

You are responsible for all the items placed in the skip. If there are items that are not general waste, you could be charged extra for the correct disposal.

If you think some of your waste may contain asbestos, contact us so we can help you dispose of it safely in the right way.
