Overfilled skips

It is tempting to fill skips above the sides , it is also tempting to place boards in the sides of the skips to gain more height. This practice is unsafe for our drivers to carry the skips , therefore should our driver turn up and your skip is overfilled they will refuse to pick it up. Taking overloaded skips onto the highway is illegal and unsafe for our drivers and other road users , this also attracts a fine , so please ensure ensure that your skips are level filled with the top of the skip. If you have additional rubbish to clear then we can provide waste bags at a cost of £50. Please speak to our staff for more information.
