What Happens To Your Skip Waste

Filling up your hire skip is a simple task and will probably take place at a much faster rate than you first think. After all, skips are able to hold a lot of material! With this said, the team here at PWM Skip Hire recognise that many people tend to wonder what happens to the debris they dispose of once the skip is collected by the hire company. To answer any questions that might keep you up at night, we have decided to reveal all in this article. Read on to find out more information…


When a skip is collected from a client, it is often taken to a processing facility where the contents can be sorted through. After all, the majority of the items that people will place in a skip are recyclable and throwing all of the waste into a landfill is unethical. In fact, even the items that cannot be recycled may be able to be repurposed for other uses. It is essential that all of the items in a skip are suitable as this can delay the processing stage or even prevent the skip from being collected in the first place.


A lot of the items that are found in a skip in 2018 can be recycled including: paper, plastic, wood, cardboard, glass, clothing textiles, soil and even green waste. After the content has been processed, the items that cannot be repurposed are taken to landfill and the recyclable items are taken to an appropriate facility where they are disposed of in an environmentally friendly way. In fact, many skip hire companies have a ‘zero to landfill’ policy where they try to reduce the amount of waste that is sent to landfill as much as they possibly can.

It is the job of the skip hire company to collect and dispose of the waste that their client has filled up the skip with. In fact, it is essential that the company makes their customers aware of which materials are skip friendly and which ones aren’t before collection as otherwise the recycling facilities will not be able to deal with the waste properly.
