Skip bins are versatile, accommodating a wide variety of waste materials. You can dispose of:

While our skip bins can handle most types of waste, there are some restrictions for safety and environmental reasons:

  • Hazardous materials, including asbestos, chemicals, and paint

What happens to the waste after I fill the skip bin?

If the skip bin is to be placed on your property, a permit is not usually required. However, if the bin needs to be placed on public land, such as a street or verge, you may need a permit from your local council. Our customer service team can provide advice and assistance in obtaining any necessary permits.
