How do I load a skip?

Skips should be loaded evenly and not overloaded. Larger items should be placed at the bottom of the skip to ensure they don’t topple over when the skip is lifted.

What happens to the waste in the skip after it’s collected?

The waste in the skip is taken to a recycling or waste management facility where it is sorted, processed, and disposed of in an environmentally friendly way.

Can I hire a skip for commercial use?

What happens if I exceed the weight limit of the skip?

If you exceed the weight limit of the skip, you may be charged an additional fee. In extreme cases, the hire company may refuse to collect the skip until the excess weight has been removed.
