How much of my waste is recycled?
We recycle metal, wood, green waste, hardcore, soil, Very little goes to landfill.
Why can’t you put plasterboard into a skip?
In 2011, there was a change in legislation that meant that plasterboard and other gypsum products must be disposed of separately to mixed waste. This is because research showed that in a mixed waste setting, dangerous gases were emitted during decomposition. As such, plasterboard is no longer permitted in a skip with other waste, and should be disposed of separately. In most cases, your skip provider will have special plasterboard bags which can be used to ensure your plasterboard does not mix with your general waste.
What about waste carrier licences?
Skip providers are legally required to have a waste carriers licence to remove your waste. If you do not choose a provider who is licensed, you can face a fine or prosecution, both of which will cost you money.
Are there any important safety measures?
To ensure the skip is used safely, there are a few measures and rules that should be followed. Some are carried out by the skip provider and others are the responsibility of the consumer. It is important that skip hire rules and regulations are followed to ensure the public’s safety.
It is important the skip contents do not protrude outside of the skip. This could pose a hazard for both pedestrians and road users when the skip is place on a road or publicly accessible land. It is also important that skips are not overloaded, as items can be hazardous if they fall out during transit.
Cones and amber lights should surround the skip, making it more visible at night. The skip should also have reflective markers along the sides. This is the responsibility of the skip provider, and is often a requirement in order to obtain a council skip permit or license.
Skips should not be placed on pavements that block pedestrian access, in front of driveways, over manhole covers, drains, grates or obstruct other access points.
Hired skips should not be filled with waste that pose the risk of fire, explosion or present a health or environmental hazard. If you have any doubts, you should contact your skip provider.
If I hide prohibited waste in the middle of the skip, will it be found?
After your skip has been collected, all of the contents are emptied for recycling. As a result, any items that are hidden within your skip will be discovered, so it is not recommended that you attempt to hide prohibited items in the middle of your skip. If restricted items are found, you may be fined and have to pay the additional disposal costs.
You are responsible for all of the waste that is in your skip at the time of collection, so you should be mindful of unwanted waste additions from members of the public. If you are leaving your skip in a location that is easily accessible to the public, you may want to consider a lockable skip, which will keep your waste secure and prevent potentially prohibited items being added to your skip.
