Skips for DIY waste

clip_image002DIY waste is classified as neither household nor garden waste according to the Environmental Protection Act 1990. In fact, DIY waste is classed as industrial waste, even if it generated from a home, which means that councils do not have a duty to provide free disposal for it. For this level of work it’s advisable to hire a skip and let us deal with the waste once the skip becomes full.

DIY waste, or construction and demolition waste, is generated through building or renovation work. Most of this waste is made up of hardcore or rubble – small stones and rocks used for building – or material left over following demolition of a driveway, wall or roof repairs, etc.

Examples of DIY waste are:

  • hardcore/rubble/bricks
  • paving slabs
  • plasterboard
  • roofing materials
  • soil/turf
  • bath, toilet or basin unit
  • central heating system components
  • tiles
  • door, window or frame
  • kitchen unit or wardrobe
  • shed/fence panels
  • laminate flooring
  • timber, MDF, hardboard

If you don’t have the space for a skip on your property and it has to go on a public access area such as a road or pavement, then a skip permit from your local authority will be needed. However we can handle this application process for you, freeing up your time to concentrate on your DIY project.

Once your skip is filled, LSPS pick up and transport your DIY waste back to our onsite waste transfer station in order to recycle as much as possible, avoiding landfill where we can.
