Materials we DO Accept
Materials we DO NOT accept
Each skip has a maximum fill line clearly indicated on its side. If the skip is filled beyond this point it cannot be collected for safety reasons and the driver will ask you to remove some material before he can load the skip.
In general, you should give some thought as to how you will fill your skip. Larger items need to be placed carefully if you are to avoid creating unfilled spaces that stop you getting the most out of your skip.
