If you haven’t already heard, skip costs are set to jump a further 20% from Friday 1st April. Unfortunately this is not an April fools joke!

The costs are rising because of annually increasing rates on landfill tax, and will continue to rise until 2014. The theory behind the rises is to try to wean the British population off just throwing everything away, and to try to get everyone recycling as much as they can.

So, if you’re still putting your post consumer waste in the skip, instead of having it recycled, now is the time to start! Our skip costs have significantly reduced as we have all our PVCu, timber and aluminium frames recycled. These materials used to be the biggest contributors to using up skip space, but now they are being put to better uses.
