Apr 14, 2022 | Blog, Rubbish Removal

If you find yourself with a lot of waste, either from doing a home clear-out or something similar, you might be considering hiring a skip or even a flexiSKIP. As you consider, it’s best to understand what items can go in a skip and what can’t, so you don’t waste money hiring a waste removal option you can’t fully utilise.

What can go in a skip?

Skip bins can be a great way to dispose of rubbish given that they can hold a lot, depending on the size of skip that you hire, and can take the bulk of your rubbish away. Typically, you can throw the following in a skip:

  • Construction waste
  • Bricks
  • Concrete
  • Soil
  • Green waste
  • Electrical items and appliances
  • Furniture
  • Toys
  • Clothes

What can’t go in a skip?

Even though skips can accommodate a wide range of rubbish, there are some things that you can’t throw out in a skip. Not knowing these prior to your clean out cna bring your whole project to a halt, and potentially cause you to spend double on your rubbish removal.

Items that aren’t allowed in a skip bin include:
