What Can You Put In A Skip – What Items Can’t I Put In A Skip?

If you are hiring a skip for rubbish removal you may be unsure of what you can put in a skip. This is a common query we hear at DTM Skips. If you are looking for cheap skip hire but are unsure of what you can, or more importantly, cannot put in your skip, this post will help guide you. It is important to understand that there are some items you legally cannot dispose of through skip hire.

Rubbish Removal Legal Requirements

Due to health and safety precautions and legal requirements if any of these items are found in one of our skips, we can not take it. This will be a waste of time and resource for both us and you. Dumping rubbish in other people’s skips is a very bad idea. It can cause issues with us being able to take the skip due to the amount of objects that can not be collected by us.
