Please note no hazardous, clinical or electrical items to be placed in any skips on campus, for correct disposal of these items see below. Mattresses can be disposed of for an additional cost, please contact Environmental Services for further information.
Our Contractors aim to recycle at least 98% of the items from your skip.
Plan on how to load all the rubbish on your skip
Throwing all the wastes or rubbish into the skip without having any plan will result in wasting plenty of space. To maximise the space of your skip, make sure to load it with a good plan.
- Load all the flat items first (plywood, table tops, etc.) then load all the bulky and heavy items. Make sure to tightly pack your rubbish also to minimise the airspace that might take a lot of space.
- After laying all the flat items into the skip, follow it by loading all the bulky and heavy items. This is to make sure that every space of the skip will be used. Make sure to load these bulky items in a manner that no space will be left unfilled.
- Then crush all the remaining items to make it smaller chunks then load them to skip by filling all the remaining space on the skip. If you can crush some of the rubbish to smaller and materials, better since you will use every amount of space in the skip.
Don’t overload the skip
Every skip you will hire will have markers to indicate the fill levels. And an overfilled skip won’t be accepted by skip hire company as there are rules to be followed on transporting the skip bins, overfilled skip bins may subject to fines. So make sure to monitor the fill levels of the skip as you load it with your wastes to be disposed of.
