What Cannot Go In A Skip?

Hiring a skip can be useful for the removal of various waste and rubbish depending on your project. From commercial building projects to decluttering your home or garage. Rubbish removal has never been easier, our team are experts at making sure you find the right service for your purposes. We are able to advise on the size and type of service you might benefit from the most when you enquire. 

It can be difficult knowing what is allowed to go in a skip and what rubbish we are allowed to remove. We have outlined the most common items you’re allowed to have removed using our waste management services, as well as some useful information to consider before hiring one.

What Types Of Waste Can Go In A Skip?

The type of rubbish you put in a skip can depend greatly on the type of service you choose. It’s always best to check with one of our team before hiring so we can assist you with the right option.

Generally the following materials CAN be put in our skips without any issues:

  • General waste
  • Electrical items
  • Paper
  • Cardboard
  • Glass
  • Wood
  • Plastic
  • Builders waste
  • Rubble
  • Soil
  • Household waste
  • Green waste

All of these items are common to commercial building sites and DIY projects at home. These general waste items are completely fine for us to remove and will be disposed of in a professional and environmentally conscious way.

What Kind Of Waste Will You Get Rid Of?

Determining what sort of waste you’ll need removing is important when it comes to waste removal. We strive to manage all waste we deal with in an environmentally conscious way to keep our local Cornish coastline clean and tidy, which means when enquiring about skip hire with us it’s important to know whether some of the materials being removed are hazardous or just general waste. 

Road Permits

Often the size of the skip is not the issue. If placed on a road, it may require a permit. This can mean extra charges incurred and may be more technical to set up hire. Our team is more than happy to help you organise any permits you may require when hiring from us.

What Type Of Skip Do I Need?

With different varieties  available to hire, from mini containers to very large roll on, roll off containers. The type of waste management service you require really depends on the type of project you’re undertaking. Our experienced team will be able to help you decide which option is best depending on your project.
