Here you’ll find an interactive map outlining our delivery area. Unfortunately, as transport costs are a major factor we can only economically deliver within a defined area.Please check to make sure you are located within our delivery area.
It is important that you choose the correct skip size for the waste volume and waste type you have to dispose. Here we have posted photos of the various skips available and their dimensions along with the type of wastes (by weight) that can be carried.
There are certain waste types that cannot be placed in a mixed waste skip, and certain wastes types if placed in a mixed skip will attract an additional charge due to the high cost of recycling/disposal. Here you will find a list of those wastes.
Skips sited on the road, pavement, verge, residents parking bay or any other land owned and maintained by the Council’s Highways department must have a road permit. It is illegal to site any skip on Council owned property without a permit.
All of the skip wastes we collect are taken to our local fully licensed recycling centre. Here we segregate and process your wastes by manual and mechanical methods to recycle as much as possible. Our recycling rate in 2017 is 90.2%.
