Plasterboard – If you have small quantities of plasterboard, we offer a one tonne plasterboard bag at a cost of £40 plus the vat. Please note it is highly unlikely you will fit a tonne of plasterboard. If you do not think a one tonne bag will be sufficient you would need to hire a plasterboard only skip, please call our office for further details.
- Please note any asbestos or plasterboard found in a general waste skip will either be rejected for collection or if found once back at our waste transfer station, a sorting fee will automatically be charged as this waste cannot be mixed with other waste types as stated by the environment agency.
- We often get asked if mattresses, carpets, and sofas can go in a skip. The answer to this is yes but only in small quantities i.e. 1 to 3 mattresses and a roll or 2 of carpet is ok but we cannot accept full skips of carpets, mattresses or sofas at the normal mixed waste rate, you would have to be charged at a haulage and tonnage cost, please speak to our office for further information.
