Garden Skips

Garden Skips are specifically meant for disposing of 100% green waste, which is recyclable. Green waste typically consists of garden waste materials, such as leaves, branches, grass clippings, etc. If you hire a Garden Skip, you must ensure that you dispose only of green waste in the bin, as any other material is prohibited and will not be taken away from your property.

General waste can include different types of household waste, including electronic waste materials such as TVs, computers, DVD players and the like, furniture such as mattresses, bed heads, carpets, doors and wardrobes, home appliances such as fridges, dryers and washing machines and other types of waste materials that may be found in a home or a commercial location. While Junk Skips permit many different types of garbage items to be disposed of, certain items are prohibited in these bins. Prohibited items generally include heavy waste materials such as timber, soil, bricks, concrete and tiles, among other types of heavy waste.
