What Can and Can’t Go In A Skip Bin

The identification of your waste type is normally fairly straight forward, however it is important because certain waste types are prohibited from being placed in skips and also in many cases, the waste type affects the price of the Skip Bin Services.

It is important to correctly specify your intended waste type because placement of other waste types may result in additional disposal charges after the skip in collected.  The Table Below provides some guidelines.  If you have any doubt as to which waste type your waste belongs, please feel free to call Luckys Scrap Metals and our experiences staff will happily assist you.

NOTE: When selecting a waste type you must ensure that no other types of waste are placed in the skip.  If this occurs, you will be liable to pay for the disposal cost of disposal as per the correct waste type.  Please refer to Luckys Scrap metals Skip Bin Services Terms and Conditions for Additional information.

The inclusion of any material containing asbestos, any form of insulation material, or any other dangerous material is strictly prohibited.

NOTE: Luckys Scrap Metals recommend referring to your local Waste Centre for tip fee prices.  Additional Items such as Mattress’s are priced individually please refer to below
