Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a Highway's Permit?

Skips placed on public highways and roads need a skip permit from the local council. It can't be placed on a public pavement but you can place it on private land without a skip permit. Without a valid permit.

We organise permits on your behalf. Permits can be in place very quickly.  We also offer a service that allows you to dispose of your waste quickly and efficiently without the use for a permit. Why not try our Wait and Load Rubbish Clearance Service.

What happens to my recycling?

All waste is taken to our Material Recycling Facilities in North Northumberland and The Scottish Borders.  Here it goes through a mechanical and manual treatment process which separates the different materials.  These are then recycled in various ways.  Rubbish that cannot be recycled goes to a fully licenced landfill.  We aim to recycle 90% or more.
