Green waste skip hire and grab trucks – Garden waste collection alternatives in Bournemouth

As lockdown restrictions are slowly being lifted, and with summer fast approaching, you might be finding yourself spending more time working in (and hopefully enjoying) your garden. If you have completed some garden improvements, you are likely to have created some additional garden waste.

In this article, we outline a few ways we can help with the collection and disposal of your surplus garden waste during the coronavirus pandemic and beyond.

Update on Council-run activities

Throughout lockdown, the operation of many Council-run waste management services, such as local tips and scheduled bin collections, have fluctuated or been stopped completely.

This situation is still ongoing, and when coupled with the advice to only use HWRCs (household waste recycling centres) if you are unable to safely store additional waste at home, people are being left with limited waste disposal options.

So without having a regular green bin collection service and until visiting your local tip becomes easier, your green waste might be building up.

Alternatives for green waste collections

If you don’t fancy waiting in longer than usual queues, or you’re unable to safely store your green waste at home until the services provided by the local council return to normal, Avon Material Supplies have a few affordable garden waste disposal alternatives you may wish to consider.

Garden waste skip hire
If you’re looking for a stress-free, affordable option to help you clear that pesky garden waste, hiring a green waste skip from AMS is an excellent option. We supply a variety of skip sizes (4 yard – 12 yards) to suit projects of almost any size. To receive a price for hiring a garden waste skip or for further advice, please call 01202 579579 or visit our green waste skip hire webpage.

Our garden waste skips come with a 2 week hire period, so you can order your skip at the start of your project and fill it up as you go along.

Grab truck hire
Grab trucks are best suited for larger-scale projects where you’ll need to remove up to 16 tonnes of waste collected. Due to their extended reach, grab trucks are also ideal for when garden waste is located in a place with difficult access or where there isn’t space for a skip. With grab truck hire, all of your garden waste can be removed in one visit by our operatives making it a quick and reliable way of removing the waste whilst staying safe at home.

All collected waste is disposed of at Canford Recycling Centre, a specialist recycling facility who we have a long standing partnership with.

Garden waste skip bag
For smaller amounts of garden waste, our skip bag service is a convenient and easy way to store and remove up to 1 tonne of green waste. To learn more or to get started by placing an order, please visit

When your order is completed we will deliver an empty skip bag to your door. Simply fill it up with your garden waste and we will collect it from you at an agreed time for recycling.

We can supply and collect a skip bag filled with garden waste locally from just £50.00. To learn more or to order this service, please visit our green waste skip bags web page.
