HOW HIGH CAN I FILL MY SKIP?
Overloaded skips will not be collected. Skips can be loaded to a maximum of one foot above the level of the skip. Where this is exceeded, the additional waste must be removed prior to collection If the skip is filled beyond this point it cannot be collected for safety reasons and the driver will ask you to remove some material before he can load the skip. In general, you should give some thought as to how you will fill your skip. Larger items need to be placed carefully if you are to avoid creating unfilled spaces that stop you getting the most out of your skip.

DO I NEED A PERMIT FOR MY SKIP?
It is the responsibility of the customer to provide permits where needed. A permit is required if a skip is to be dropped on double yellow lines, a prepaid parking area, loading bay or other restricted area. A permit can be obtained from the appropriate local authority.

WILL THE MATERIAL IN MY SKIP BE RECYCLED?
Yes. All recyclable material is recovered including soil, stone, timber, metal, plastic, paper, green waste, etc. In 2014 Ecological Waste Management Ltd recycled 91% of our waste out.
