Skip vs Tip Infographicv3

Hiring a skip is an easy, quick and cost-effective way to remove your waste and unwanted items responsibly. If you are refurbishing your kitchen or bathroom, having a garage clearout or working on a garden clearance, here at Dunmow Waste Management we recycle 100% of all recyclable waste at our Mid Essex Recycling Center in the heart of Chelmsford.

One of our most frequently asked questions is “What can’t I put into the skip?” We have put together a short guide which will help you understand what you can and can’t dispose of in our skips or roll-on-roll-off bins:

What you CAN’T place in our skips:

  • Asbestos (please ask us for a specialised enclosed asbestos skip)
  • Food waste
  • Wet paint tins and spray cans
  • Hazardous waste
  • Flammable items/liquids
