What cannot go in our Skip Bags?
Our bags are used for household, inert & garden waste. Listed below are a number of common waste streams that are not accepted in our bags.
- Plasterboard (If you are disposing of plasterboard you can use our plasterboard-only waste bags option here.)
- Gas Bottles & Cylinders

(Only allowed in our Plasterboard-Only Skip Bags or Skip Hire Option) In 2009 a change to regulations dictating how we dispose of plasterboard was implemented, this means the disposal of gypsum which is the main raw material of plasterboard could no longer be mixed with biodegradable waste. Need to get rid of plasterboard? Check our plasterboard only removal service options.
Gas Bottles & Cylinders
Although the components of gas bottles & cylinders are highly recyclable, the hazards associated with them prevent them from being able to be safely disposed of via our suppliers. This waste must be disposed of by a hazardous waste specialist.
Asbestos is classed as hazardous waste falling under The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. Due to the risk associated to asbestos, it requires specialist handling and disposal. If you want to dispose of asbestos please seek guidance from a local specialist.
The Waste Batteries & Accumulators Regulations 2009 was introduced for guidance around handling, treatment and disposal. Distributers (such as supermarkets) of small batteries are obligated under the regulation to also provide disposal for domestic in stores. The type and quantity of battery that you wish to dispose of will dictate the necessary handling and disposal process, please obtain further guidance.
Clinical waste is always deemed hazardous due to the nature of what it contains. Clinical waste includes any waste associated with human/animal health or waste from laboratories.
Hazardous Waste (Paint Tins, Oils, Petrol, Diesel, Aerosols & Mastic Tubes)
Waste that is considered hazardous under environmental legislation containing substances potentially harmful to health are also prohibited from your skip. There is a variety of options available locally depending on the type of wastes you wish to dispose of.
Freezers, Large Fridges & Other Electrical Waste (Microwaves & Kettles)
The WEEE Directive (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) was set up to better manage electrical waste within the waste industry. Should your waste item/s have a crossed out wheelie bin symbol, or in simple terms requires electricity to operate, please take to your household recycling centre and if you’re a business or other user (such as a school or hospital), please contact a specialist disposal company in the area.
Food or Food Contaminated Packaging
Food waste requires separate collection & treatment to prevent it from contaminating other, recyclable wastes. For this reason, we are unable to collect food or food contaminated packaging.
More than 1 Roll of Carpet
Most suppliers will accept 1x roll/room of carpet. If there are additional quantities of this waste type we must check with the supplier before booking. Additional charges may apply.
Most suppliers will accept soft furnishings however due to a change in legislation in 2023 on how upholstered seating can be disposed of the following items may not always be accepted in our mixed waste skips: sofas, sofa beds, armchairs, kitchen and dining room chairs, stools and foot stools, home office chairs, futons, bean bags, floor and sofa cushions. Please let us know upon ordering to see if we can accommodate the removal of these items.
