bin collection

Interested in our Wigan waste collection?

What can I put in my bin or skip?

Wondering what you can throw away? We’ve got a range of options tailored for your Wigan waste management needs. Our 240-litre bins are ideal for day-to-day items and recyclables, like food scraps and glass bottles.

If you’ve got more to dispose of, consider our 660 and 1100-litre bins – perfect for general waste and generous amounts of cardboard. As for our skips, they can manage almost anything you’d usually put in your home bin. Just steer clear of hazardous waste like batteries and fuel.

What happens to my commercial waste?

When you schedule a Wigan waste collection, we transport it to our spacious 17-acre recycling centre. Once there, we sort your waste into recyclable and non-recyclable categories.

We’re passionate about our recycling efforts. By prioritising recyclable materials, we’re minimising the waste that ends up in landfills and reducing environmental harm.

What is hazardous waste?

Hazardous waste is waste that poses a risk to public health and the environment. It can be liquids, solids, or gases, which can be found in many different places, such as businesses, homes, and schools. It can pollute the air, water, and soil, and also cause health problems, which is why it is important to dispose of hazardous waste properly.

Some common examples of hazardous waste include:

  • Solvents
  • Paints
  • Aerosols
  • Batteries
  • Medical waste

How do I get rid of hazardous waste?

It’s important NOT to dispose of hazardous waste on your own, as this can create risks for both yourself and those around you. If you need to dispose of materials that are considered hazardous, please reach out to a company that specialises in hazardous waste removal. They have the expertise and equipment necessary to handle these materials safely and properly, while ensuring the correct dispoal.

How long can you hire a skip for?

For our domestic customers, we offer skip hire for a period of up to 14 days from the day of delivery.

As one of our account customers, you can hire a skip for 5 weeks from the day of delivery. If your business is interested in setting up an account with us, please reach out to us at 01204 696446 – our team will be happy to arrange this for you.

What happens to skip waste after collection?

After we collect your skip, your waste is transported to our dedicated 17-acre recycling and disposal facility, where we meticulously sort and recycle all materials. Thanks to our firm commitment in aiming to recycle 100% of waste brought to site, and with the opening of our state-of-the-art recycling plant in early 2023, we’re now able to process more efficiently, making our recycling services even more effective and environmentally friendly.
