At Skip Hire Warwickshire, we provide a comprehensive range of skip sizes and types to suit any project or waste management needs. But one of the most common questions we get asked by our clients is "What can I put in a skip?" In this guide, we'll answer that question and more, so you can make informed decisions when hiring a skip and disposing of your waste.
Before we dive into the specifics of what you can and can't put in a skip, let's first understand the basics of skip hire and waste disposal.
Skip hire is a service that provides clients with skip bins or containers for the collection and removal of household, commercial, or industrial waste. Skips come in a range of sizes, from mini skips for small projects to large roll-on roll-off skips for major construction sites. Customers can hire a skip for a specific period, during which time the skip is placed on their property or on the road outside (depending on the location and permit requirements).
Once the skip is filled with waste, the skip hire company collects it and disposes of the waste safely and legally. Skip hire companies are required by law to dispose of the waste in an environmentally responsible manner, which means that they must ensure that as much waste as possible is recycled, reused or repurposed, and only non-recyclable and non-hazardous waste is sent to landfill.
At Skip Hire Warwickshire, we take our environmental responsibilities seriously and work closely with our clients to ensure that they understand how to dispose of their waste properly. We also offer advice and guidance on how to reduce waste and recycle more, so that we can all play our part in protecting the environment.
Now that we've covered the basics, let's take a closer look at what you can and can't put in a skip.

We partner with licensed hazardous waste contractors who can safely and legally dispose of hazardous waste materials in compliance with all necessary legislation.
