THE WEIGHT OF THE WASTE IS OVER THE SPECIFIED WEIGHT LIMIT.
Our current Waste Disposal Excess Charge for INERT Waste per pro rata tonne (including VAT) is £21.00
Our current Waste Disposal Excess Charge for Non Hazardous MIXED Waste is £197.61 per pro rata tonne or cubic metre whichever is the greater.
WE CHARGE AN EXCESS OF £130.00 PER TONNE FOR CLEAN, UNCONTAMINATED, PRE-SEGREGATED PLASTERBOARD
It must be placed either in a separate Skip or segregated from other waste types in a Skip by placing it into Dumpy Bags (which we can provide upon request) and placed on top of the other waste in the Skip but kept within the shape of the Skip, thus allowing for easy removal at the disposal site.
An excess charge will be incurred for the sorting and/or disposal of any unsegregated Plaster or Plasterboard found within a skip.
CONTAMINATED PLASTERBOARD i.e. Plaster or Plasterboard that also contains polystyrene, insulation, wood, tiles, etc, will be chargeable at £159.00 inc vat per tonne.
The Skip can be LEVEL FILLED (subject to the Weight/Volume
limits shown on our Invoice and/or Price List).
Our Prices are based on LEVEL FILLED Skips only and the contents of the Skip must not project from within the shape of the Skip
Due to high disposal costs, OVER FILLING OR OVERLOADING A SKIP WILL ALWAYS INCUR AN EXCESS CHARGE!
In our experience, Customers VERY RARELY say "I wish we
had ordered a smaller Skip" and RARELY is a Skip not full upon collection!
It is far more economical to order a larger Skip and not quite fill it, than it is to have one smaller Skip, fill it and then still need another.
Yes, definitely! We offer a discount for Skips
containing just ONE of the following; Metal, Untreated Timber, UPVC Frames (No Glass or Beading), Clean Clear Shrink Wrap, Cardboard, Paper,
Glass, Hardcore and Light Weight Greenery (Subject to conditions). Email or telephone us for further details.
Our disposal charges are based on both the weight of the waste within the skip and the time that it takes to sort it. Hence, if for example, Soil & Bricks were placed in one Skip and any other waste placed either in a separate Skip or even placed in one of our Dumpy Recycling Bags, the price would be a lot cheaper!
Even segregating the waste WITHIN a Skip helps, with the example shown above, placing the Soil and Bricks in the bottom of Skip and placing the other waste on the top, allows us to simply remove the other waste first at the disposal site and the price would be cheaper.
We recommend that, if possible, the Skip
is sited on your property, as siting on the Public Highway * involves us having to obtain a Highway Licence from the Highways Department.
Assuming there are no parking restrictions where the skip is to be sited, the minimum charges and the minimum period of notice required for the applications to
be processed are as shown below;
Northamptonshire; £32.00 per week with 3 FULL WORKING DAYS NOTICE REQUIRED (Monday - Friday)
Warwickshire; £81.00 per 28 days with 4 FULL WORKING DAYS NOTICE REQUIRED (Monday - Friday)
We are unable to obtain Highway Licences for Leicestershire or Oxfordshire
* The Public Highway is normally any land outside of your garden fence/wall/property boundary;
This includes The Grass Verge, Pavements, Parking Areas, Lay-Bys and the Road.
Be aware that just because you mow the grass outside of your house does not mean that you own it!
IMPORTANT: ONCE A SKIP ORDER IS CONFIRMED AND WE HAVE APPLIED FOR A HIGHWAY LICENCE, THE APPLICATION CHARGE IS NON REFUNDABLE AND IS CHARGEABLE TO THE CUSTOMER, EVEN IF THE SKIP ORDER IS AMENDED OR CANCELLED!
Our lorries are large, heavy, wide
and long and we require enough manoeuvring space to enable our lorries to be able to safely gain access to your property.
The approximate minimum access dimensions required are; 3.10m wide, 3.90m high and an access and site surface capable of withstanding 18.0 tonnes.
Please also check for the following: Overhanging Trees, Branches, Cables, Roof Edges, Satellite Dishes & Manhole Covers (which may be hidden under gravel/stone).
