What can’t I put in a skip?

Posted on by Danny Nolan

Perhaps you’re undergoing a home renovation project, or maybe you’re currently part of a large scale industrial project, but either way you’re probably going to require skip hire services in order to safely dispose of any waste.

However, one common mistake many skip users make is to throw all waste into the skip. Not all materials are appropriate for a skip and need to be disposed of in different ways. So before you go ahead and start tipping everything in, we’re going to give you the low down on what CANNOT be put into a skip…

Electrical equipment

  • Fridges

  • Toasters

  • Microwaves

  • Electric cookers and fans

  • Televisions

  • Telephones

  • Computer screens and towers

  • Fax machines

  • Printers and scanners

  • Hydraulic oil

  • Engine oil (petrol or diesel)

  • Cooking oil

  • Medical waste


Solvents and chemicals

  • Paint (or paint tins that still have paint in them)

  • Glue

  • Bleach

  • Detergent

  • Processing fluids

  • White spirits

  • Herbicides



  • Batteries (household or vehicle)

  • Tyres

  • Plasterboard

  • Gas cylinders

  • Asbestos

So now you know what NOT to put in your skip, you can go ahead and dispose of your waste confidently!
