Whether you are trying to dispose of business or household waste, it’s important that you are aware of the different waste disposal methods you have at your disposal. This will allow you to make the best decisions both economically and practically. For example, if you find that you need to dispose of large volumes of waste, then you may benefit from our Skip Bag & Collection services, we also provide skips.

As with the rest of our waste collection services, the process is relatively simple. We’ll either drop off your skip bag directly or send it in the post. We’ll then collect it at a time that is convenient for you and ensure that it is taken to the appropriate recycling and disposal facilities in the Yorkshire area.

Why use a Skip Bag?

There are many benefits associated with using a skip bag to store your waste prior to disposal. For example:

Skip bags take up considerably less space than skips and other forms of waste bins. As a result, they’re an excellent choice for those who may be running a little short on space.

Skip bags can be stored on your property for as long as you need them to be – there are no time limits.
Skip bags can be used to store a wide variety of waste types.

Skip bags allow for easy and efficient collection from waste disposal experts.

Skip bags are well suited to smaller projects but hold more waste than traditional bins.

What can you put in a skip bag? 

As mentioned previously, skip bags are a great waste storage option because they can store a wide variety of waste types. This includes:

General waste
Construction/DIY materials (Rubble)
Bulky waste items
Office waste
Garden Waste
Recyclables (Cardboard, Plastic, Paper)
Timber & Wood

In short, a good rule of thumb is that you can use skip bags to store any waste that you would typically dispose of in a skip. However, if you aren’t sure – ask! At Divert, our team of waste disposal experts are always on hand to answer any questions you might have.

What can’t you put in a skip bag? 

While skip bags are suitable for most waste types, there are some exceptions. For example, the following waste products should not be stored in skip bags:

Hazardous Waste
Clinical Waste
Liquid Waste
Oil Waste

Skip Bag Alternatives? 

If you are producing waste that is not suitable for skip bags, plenty of alternatives are available. For example, you may opt to hire traditional skips or specialised waste bins. Alternatively, if you are carrying out a one-off project, it may be better to opt for our man and van services.
