Some items are not permitted within the skip hire, and can not go in the skip for environmental reasons such as contamination or heath implications to humans or animals, others are due to to the recycling process. It may be that the recycling process is not suitable in the nearby area for the items you wish to dispose of. Either way we may be able to advise you of the best way to dispose of non permitted items
Plasterboard can not be put into a mixed waste skip. As a specialist waste it has to be kept in a separate skip. However if you have a small amount of clean plasterboard we can take it on top of a mixed waste skip if it is kept separate in bags so it can be removed. This requires prior approval upon ordering.
TV's and computer monitors
Air conditioning units or wine chillers
POP's - Any upholstered item containing fire retardant foam. Usually in the way of domestic seating such as: sofas, arm chairs, office chairs, dining room chairs with upholstered seats, outside furniture cushions and bed headboards etc.
Although we strive to keep the cost of our skip hire down for our customers there is an ever growing list of items which can now be recycled further. This is great for the environment and recycling but does unfortunately result in higher cost due to the machinery and processes involved. Should you have any of the additional charging items we will be happy to advise of other ways to dispose of them which may be more suitable for you.
