What can I throw in a skip?

The items that you can dispose of in a skip include the following: wood, plastic, organic waste such as garden rubbish, metal, furniture, fixtures, non-electrical fittings, cardboard, bricks, rubble, uncontaminated soil and general domestic waste.

What can't I throw in a skip?

There are a number of things that must never be thrown away in a skip, some obvious and some slightly less obvious. Anything potentially dangerous must be disposed of separately, as well as many other items and substances that have to be managed in a different way for environmental reasons.

Common sense will usually tell you what you can and cannot put in your skip but here is a breakdown of the most common things that must never be thrown away in a skip: televisions, computer screens/monitors, electrical equipment, refrigerators, freezers, batteries, tyres, paint, paint cans, pressurised gas containers, asbestos, clinical or medical waste, fluorescent tubes, chemicals, solvents, liquids, oil, petrol, diesel, plasterboard and any hazardous or toxic materials of any kind.
