Residential Waste Removal

Skip and Gantry Bins – great for any large clean up or DIY projects you have on the go. Available for short or longer-term hire, with additional collection and replacement of the bin as and when required.
General Waste
Bin sizes range from smaller 3m³ and 4.5m³ skips through to the large 7.5m³ Bins. All three sizes are suitable for general and garden waste.
3m³ bins are the ideal capacity for the removal of concrete, bricks, sand and soil.
Green Waste
Our range of skips from 3m – 7.5m are good for Garden waste matter like shrub trimmings, lawn clippings, general garden waste and tree prunings of branches up to 100mm diameter.

Hardfill is concrete, bricks, concrete, paving, stones and cement taken from residential sites. Much of this material is crushed and then used as a compacted base course for asphalt road making. Hardfill must not be mixed with any Green or General household waste.
We can also accept clean soil however this must be separated from other materials. If soil is mixed with other hardfill materials then it may incurr a higher post-processing fee.

What we do not accept as Hardfill

Reinforced concrete with metal reinforcing mesh still attached. Concrete with particle board still attached or any form of tiles attached e.g. roofing tiles, floor tiles

Skips can be filled with green garden material but it has to be separated from all other waste, in other words no General household waste or Hardfill can be in the same skip. Green waste is post-processed into compost.
Green waste includes fresh garden matter like branches, leaves, hedge and shrub trimmings, rose prunings and lawn clippings.
