What is hazardous waste?

Hazardous waste is considered to be waste that poses a risk to public health and the environment. Some examples of hazardous waste include solvents, paints and aerosols.

How do I get rid of hazardous waste?

DO NOT try to dispose of hazardous waste yourself as this can pose a danger to you and others around you. You should seek the service of a specialist hazardous waste removal company should you need to dispose of hazardous waste material.

What if I overload my skip?

If you exceed the maximum weight allowance of your skip, this can be a danger risk and impede transportation or halt it altogether. You should carefully read the skip size guidelines of each of our skips before choosing a skip for hire.

However, if you need help with finding the most appropriate skip to handle your waste load, contact us and a member of our team will be happy to help.

How long can you hire a skip for?

You can keep your hired skip for a maximum of 14 days on domestic jobs. If you need the skip for a longer commercial project, give us a call and we’ll see what we can do.

What do you do with my rubbish?

We will transport waste to our specialist 17-acre recycling and disposal facilities where we will sort through all waste and recycle them. We have a 100% recycled policy and, with the opening of our new facilities, we will be able to recycle even more domestic and commercial waste at a more efficient rate.
