What waste types you can put into a skip bin

The identification of your waste type is normally fairly straight forward, however here is a simple guide as to what you can and can’t place in a skip. The waste type affects the price of skip services so it is important to choose the right one for your requirement; if prohibited waste is disposed of in the skip additional disposal charges will apply.
