You cannot put hazardous items into a skip. These include but are not limited to TVs, computer monitors, asbestos, tyres, fluorescent tubes, fridges and freezers, paint and paint tins (unless empty), batteries, medical waste, gas cylinders, liquids, solvents, oil, petrol, diesel and explosives. Plasterboard is another material that is not allowed in a skip with mixed waste. Plasterboard must be kept separate from other waste, either in its own skip, or in a plasterboard skip bag. If you are unsure, it’s always best to phone us and ask. If you have something that can’t go in a skip, we’ll find you another way to dispose of it.
