What type of waste can you put in a skip bin?

One of the first questions that I ask customers when I'm quoting for a job is: 'what type of waste do you plan on putting in your skip?'.

Different waste facilities offer different standardised prices for different types of waste and by knowing the exact type of waste prior to quoting, I'm able to offer my customers the best possible prices.

It's also important that customers know that they aren't able to use their skips to dump potentially harmful materials such as asbestosis - this waste can pose an environmental hazard if it is not disposed of in the correct manor. Its important to remember that there is a right way of disposing of any type of waste.

Below, I have identified a sample of a few of the more common materials that my customers dump in their skips:

Mixed demolition and building waste: - Timber, plasterboard, flooring, doors & windows, kitchen cupboards, glass (no mirrors though... I don't need the bad luck!) etc.

Concrete & bricks:

- Broken paths, slabs, walls and driveways.

Green waste & untreated timber:

- Branches, trees, hedge trimmings, pallets etc.

Household & office clear-outs: - Furniture, appliances, boxes, books, old tools & toys etc.


- Computers, monitors, printers etc. If you are unsure about a material that you would like to dump in a skip, please feel free to give me a call on 0410 087 910 and I'll do my best to help.

Cheers, Len.
