Our commercial skip hire service is truly comprehensive at Skippy Nationwide. We'll happy carry off almost any waste and rubbish you can think of. But there are some restrictions. Some materials may require the hiring of a more specialised container.

What Can't I Put In My Skip?

Sometimes, both domestic and commercial hirers of skips think they can just chuck anything into a container without having the think about it. This is a huge mistake. Certain materials, like asbestos or fridges containing CFCs, have to be handled by trained professionals.

As such, it is vitally important to keep your inert and hazardous waste separate. This will incur additional costs and could mean we can't carry your waste away. You may have to give us a call and arrange an appointment with our hazardous waste removal team to ensure these materials are disposed of properly.

So the real questions isn't what can I put in my skip, but actually what can't I put in my skip? Well, if you're using our regular commercial skip hire service, please avoid filling your skip with the following:

  • Asbestos
  • Chemicals such as brake fluid or printer toner
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Solvents
  • Pesticides
  • Oils
  • Equipment containing ozone depleting substances (fridges/freezers)
  • Any hazardous waste containers
  • Plasterboard (by prior arrangement only)
  • Paint tins
  • Electrical waste and items such asTelevisons and computer monitors
  • Gas cyclinders

You're free to put garden waste, rubble and hardcore (depending on the size of the skip) and all other general rubbish that comes with large and small scale building projects.
