Skip Hire - What can you put in the Skip?

There are strict regulations that govern what you can dispose of using a skip and for certain types of waste, landfill tax may apply. You should confirm with the hire company you select exactly what you wish to dispose of so that you are aware of the related costs up-front.

Companies listed here should conform with existing regulations fully, so you can be sure that your waste will be disposed of legally.

Some materials cannot be disposed of using a standard skip - we have given some general indications below.
