If you would rather have us collect/clear your waste with you not being around, want a fixed price and don’t mind a bit of work filling, our skip bags may be for you. We post out the skip bag, then at an arranged time, collect the skip bag(s) up to 10m from the kerbside (or anywhere within 10m access of our collection vehicle) We can recycle/dispose of most non-hazardous waste. Please note heavy waste (rubble, hardcore, soil, sand) is not suitable in the large and X Large skip bags.
How does my skip bag arrive?
You skip bag will arrive through the post, within 3 days. The bags will be unlikely to fit through the letterbox so somebody will need to be at home to sign for it. The bag can usually be left either with a neighbour or in a safe place, if nobody is able to be home.
Where do I leave it for you to collect?
Because it will be a member of our team, without heavy machinery, collecting the filled skip bag, we can collect it from anywhere within 10m from the kerb. This means that you can safely leave the bag on your property and we will still be able to collect it from you.
Are they suitable for construction waste?
The small and medium bags are suitable for construction waste, but the larger ones are not, due to the weight limitations. We would recommend either purchasing more than one of the smaller bags for construction waste, or getting in touch with us for a free no obligations quote for collecting all your construction waste.
What happens if I overfill the skip bag?
This depends on how much you overfill the bag and with what you overfill it. If you completely fill a large or x-large bag with rubble, for instance, the weight would be so much that we would be unable to collect the bag. We do not recommend using the large or x-large bag for rubble at all. If the bag (of any size) is simply filled to over the fill line, that would be an overfilled bag and would incur a surcharge but we would be able to remove this bag. A medium bag full of rubble could be overweight and therefore a surcharge would also apply.
Are there any items that I cannot put in the skip bag?
Hazardous materials cannot be collected in a skip bag, and so cannot be put in skip bags. Other things that cannot be put in skip bags include, but are not limited to, white goods, televisions and mattresses.
Please make sure that whoever you decide to get a skip bag from, is fully accredited, because if not, you could be liable for a £5,000.00 fine. Our Organisation has an upper tier Waste Carriers Licence from the governmental Environment Agency, which means that you can be certain that your waste products won’t be illegally disposed of. Choosing 1clearance to remove your waste or rubbish means that you won’t have to worry about all the legal responsibilities that come with disposing of waste.
