What can you put in a skip bin?

You can dispose of general household waste, including furniture, appliances, and other common items. Construction and renovation materials such as bricks, concrete, timber, and tiles are also welcome. Additionally, green waste, such as branches and garden clippings, can be placed in our skip bins. 

Can you put mattresses in skip bins?

Yes. At WM Waste, we do accept mattresses in our skip bins. Disposing of a mattress responsibly is important for environmental reasons, and placing it in a skip bin ensures it is handled appropriately. When loading a mattress into the skip bin, it's advised to inform our team during the booking process so that we can make the necessary arrangements for its proper disposal. 

What can you not put in a skip bin?

While we accept a wide range of materials in our skip bins, there are certain items that are strictly prohibited for disposal due to safety and environmental reasons. Prohibited items include hazardous materials such as asbestos, chemicals, paints, solvents, and pesticides. Additionally, electronic waste (e-waste), car batteries, tyres, and gas cylinders should not be placed in skip bins. Other restricted items typically include liquids, food waste, and medical waste.
