* Our 4 yard skips cannot be filled with soil, stone, concrete or sand due to weight restrictions. Please call for quantities of these materials to be removed and we will be happy to assist, usually at a very competitive rate.
* Please beware that if any prohibited items are found when the skip is emptied you are likely to be charged extra and the restricted items returned to you. We advise that you keep an eye on your skip if it’s in an open and public area because people could put their own rubbish in your skip. If this happens, unfortunately you are responsible for the waste that is in your skip.
