What happens to your waste in your skip?

Have you ever wondered what happens to your waste in your skip after we collect it?

We have a fully licensed recycling centre in Wareham, Dorset, where all your waste will go. We’ll accept items from general waste to green waste, UPVC windows to plasterboard. You’ll find a full list of materials we accept on our Tipping Facilities page. For items that we can’t recycle or that need to be handled differently, we deal with them all for you as sustainably as we can.


You won’t find any unnecessary waste that we collect being disposed of in a landfill. We’re dedicated to reducing landfill wherever we can – that’s why we currently recycle at least 98% of all our waste.

Our residual waste is used in the production of Refuse Derived Fuel. For energy production, our wood is used in biomass for energy production and any hardcore waste is used in road maintenance. Metals are salvaged and recycled, plasterboard and cardboard are taken away to be recycled and soils are recycled at the appropriate local facilities.

So make sure you contact us with any skip hire concerns, and we will be more than happy to assist you!
