Waste Types

What waste types you can put into a skip bin

Though recognising the type of waste you have is pretty simple, there are certain things that we want our customers to be mindful about when it comes to placing their waste in the bins. Customers are likely to be charged additionally given that they have messed up with the waste category and the required bin skip.

Since the price of skip bin hire is directly associated with the type of waste, choosing the correct bin hire becomes a crucial part of this entire procedure. That’s why we have made an effort to provide you with a simple guidance to decide on what you can generally put in your skip bin hire.
