Dos and don’ts of skip hire

Do not place hazardous, clinical, or electrical waste in any skip on campus; these must be disposed of carefully via special collections. Please see our waste management page for more information.

Do not mix different types of waste in your skip

• Do not overfill your skip, otherwise it won’t be accepted by the contractor. Only fill your skip to the level line.

Do load all flat items first (e.g., plywood, tabletops, etc.) before loading any heavy and bulky items.

Do ensure all items are tightly packed in, taking care to squash so every bit of skip space is used.

Do contact us if you require a green waste or WEEE skip, as there may be limitations to the size of skip available to you or a better way to dispose of your waste.
