Landfill is not only an unsightly problem, the gases that are released by the waste are detrimental to our heath and are exacerbating global warming at an alarming rate. Thankfully, the skip industry has been revolutionised and the majority of hire company’s now recycling as much of the collected waste as they possibly can in order to avoid contributing to the landfill reliance that the human race has developed. Read on as we go through a few recyclable materials that can go in a skip…


As the most recyclable material around, there are dozens of different household items that are made from wood such as wardrobes, bookcases, units and tables. In fact, garden waste such as old fence panels can also be recycled. This means that it is perfectly acceptable to dispose of old wooden furniture in a skip because it can be recycled or repurposed very easily.


It is safe to say that the scrap metal industry is booming. In fact, there are businesses that specialise purely in scrap metal collection. Here at PWM Skip Hire, our skips can be used for a wide range of materials, including metal items. After all, metal tends to be used in a lot of household items such as microwaves. With this said, it is important to remember that hazard materials like gas cylinders, which do contain metal, cannot be disposed of in a skip


Statistics show that we use nearly 20 times more plastic than we did 50 years ago and this means that it is important to put a recycling system in place. After all, plastic is separated into 7 different types but only 4 of them can be recycled. Thankfully, most hire companies sort through the plastic waste that is placed in a skip in order to ensure that the suitable types are sent to a recycling plant rather than a landfill.

Here at PWM Skip Hire, we have made it our mission to recycle as much of the waste that we collect from clients as possible. After all, the majority of items do contain materials that can be repurposed and recycled and we believe that it is our responsibility to dispose of them simply, legally and responsibly!
