Benefits using skip bags

You may have noticed that over recent years there has been an increasing number of bulk or skip bags on driveways, gardens and sites across the country. The rise in their popularity can be attributed to the fact that they are more convenient than renting a large metal skip, people see a skip bag as being far less permanent.

Skip bags are also often easier to collect, a skip bag can be positioned anywhere as long as the area is free of obstacles, has no overhead cables and is within reach of the arm used on our grab lorries.

Another reason why individuals and businesses choose to use a skip bag is because it is a great way to reduce costs and increase recycling rates as it allows certain waste types to be segregated from a higher priced mixed waste container. For example, customers will often opt for individual bags for plasterboard, garden and inert waste.

Our skip bags are primarily used for small waste clearance projects, being filled with waste that is then collected by us. As well as the waste collection service, AMS can also offer the delivery of a various primary, recycled and decorative aggregates.
