Is green waste skip hire the right choice for you?

garden waste disposal in Bournemouth

Green waste skip hire, is it the best way to dispose of your garden waste?

Whether you’ve decided to finally tackle the jungle growing in your back garden or just to trim back your hedges and cut the lawn in preparation for the summer BBQ season, then you’ve probably been left with a pile of garden waste that you’re not quite sure what to do with.

Between Avon Material Supplies, Easy Bag and Commercial Recycling, we’ve got an answer; you can either ‘Bin it’, ‘Bag it’ or ‘Bring it in’.  

Skip it

If you require disposal of large amounts of garden waste, then green waste skip hire is probably your best option. We can accept the following in our garden waste skips;

  • Grass or flower cuttings
  • Hedge trimmings
  • Twigs and small branches
  • Weeds

Our reliable ‘next day’* green waste skip hire is fully licensed and if required, can include the provision of ‘on road’ permits, safety lights and cones, so is perfect for domestic and commercial use.

We offer three different sized skips for garden waste, which are:

  1. The smallest size is a 6-yard ‘builders’ skip and this will hold the equivalent of 60 filled black bin bags
  2. The medium sized green waste skip we offer is 8-yards and this will hold the equivalent of 80 filled black bin bags
  3. The biggest garden waste skip we provide is 12-yards and this is most often used for commercial purposes because each skip can hold around 120 black bin bags.

When hiring your garden waste skip, you can rest assured that all our prices include 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. Longer hire periods are possible but may incur a small rental charge, to find out more please contact our friendly skip hire team on 01202 579579.

Once you’re ready for the skip to be exchanged or collected, just contact our team who will usually be able to arrange for the skip lorry to visit you the next working day!

Need something bigger? If a 12-yard skip is not going to be big enough then please contact our team so they can provide you information on grab truck hire and roro (rollonoff) containers.

Bag it

If you have a smaller amount of garden waste, say half a tonne, then a garden waste skip bag would be ideal because it is easy and cheap.

The process of ordering an empty bulk bag for filling with garden waste couldn’t be easier. Simply visit, order a garden waste collection bag and once your empty skip bag arrives, you fill it and contact Easy Bag again when you would like it collected.

Our skip bags measure 90cm x 90cm x 90cm and can hold just under 1-tonne (850-950 kg) of garden waste.

Bring it in

Alternatively, if you don’t wish to pay for a garden waste collection service you can transport and dispose of the unwanted garden waste at your local recycling centre.

Depending on the rules in place at your nearest household waste recycling center (HWRC), you may be able to tip off green waste free of charge. If there are restrictions or charges in place it may be more cost-effective to tip your waste at a commercial disposal facility such as Canford Recycling Centre. To find out more about please visit:

Tipper truck hire in your area

Local, low-cost tipper truck hire

Tipper truck hire in and around Bournemouth and Poole is what we do! As an operator of a large, modern fleet of tipper trucks, Avon Material Supplies (AMS) is perfectly placed to help you with your next project.

The 6 and 8 wheel tipper trucks we operate are predominantly hired by main contractors, subcontractors and individuals who require large volumes of material to be delivered to or removed from a site.

We offer competitive tipper truck rates, which are chargeable on either a per delivery/collection basis or on a full day hire rate. AMS also offers discounted tipper truck rates for larger jobs. To learn more, please contact our friendly sales team on 01202 579579.

Choosing the right sized tipper truck

The bodies of tippers when unfilled are completely empty and free from any equipment that takes up vital space. It is this fact that means a 6 or 8 wheel tipper will carry a far larger volume of material than an equivalently sized grab lorry (please see below).

Carrying capacities of our tipper trucks:

Tipper truck size Approx. carrying capacity Grab lorry size Approx. carrying capacity
6 Wheel 15 tonnes 6 Wheel 12 tonnes
8 Wheel 19.5 tonnes 8 Wheel 16 tonnes

So, when is it right to choose a tipper truck?  

In almost all circumstances we would advise a customer to choose a tipper truck when the following statements are true.

  • The access to the site or property is clear and at least 3m wide
  • There is a suitable space on-site to manoeuvre the lorry
  • The roadway is stable and suitable for lorries that can weigh up to (approximately) 32 tonnes
  • There are qualified people available on-site with the appropriate lifting equipment to be able to load the tipper truck if it has been hired for a muckaway or site clearance service

If some of the above statements can’t be applied to your project, it would be best to consider hiring a grab lorry, roro (rollonoff) or skip. For further advice, please contact our sales team on 01202 579579.

The recycled aggregates we sell are manufactured onsite at Canford Recycling Centre using a range of state of the art equipment including a washing plant, crushers and modern screeners.

Demand for our recycled materials continues to increase because contractors and their clients understand aggregates are affordable, ideal for many purposes and more environmentally friendly than harvesting further natural resources.

Some of our aggregates serve functional purposes such as forming pipe bedding, acting as a capping layer, being used in bricklaying and mixing to produce a fine strong concrete.

Other aggregates are used for decorative purposes such as DIY applications, gardening and landscaping. These decorative aggregates Poole make for attractive additions to any garden or driveway.
