How do I keep my bulk bag in a suitable condition to reuse it?
We are only able to collect waste if it’s placed in a bulk bag that is safe, undamaged and strong enough to be picked up by one of our grab lorries. For this reason, we advise that you don’t place any sharp items in the bag, or drag your bag across stones or concrete as this can damage or rip the bag.
We also request you don’t overfill the bulk bag due to the weight considerations we adhere to, and the fact that waste not fully contained within the bag raises safety concerns, which may prevent our team from being able to collect and transport your filled skip bag.
What types of waste can you collect?
If you choose to reuse your aggregate bag as a skip bag, it can be filled with any of the following waste types:
If you’re unsure whether the type of waste you want to skip can be placed in our bulk bags, please get in touch with our team who will be more than happy to help.
How much does it cost to be collected?
Skip bag collections in the BH postcode area start from just £35.00, you can see all our prices here. To save money, we recommend you segregate your waste into the different streams we can collect because it’s cheaper to dispose of single types of waste, such as garden, plasterboard, inert etc.
Segregated waste will save you money, so skip sensibly.
My waste won’t fit in a skip bag…
No problem! We have many other waste collection options if you have too much waste for a skip bag.
For example, you could hire a skip or book a grab lorry collection from our parent company Avon Material Supplies. To discuss the range of waste collection services Avon Material Supplies, please call their friendly team on 01202 579579.
