Here at skip and waste we have two priorities. The first is to make sure that, when hiring a skip from us, our customers get exactly what they need, delivered exactly when they need it, with no hassles or holdups — smiles all round. The second is to provide this fantastic service in the most environmentally responsible way possible. We work hard so that every scrap of reusable waste we collect is properly recycled, and reducing our landfill output to the absolute minimum.

Landfill sites in the U.K are responsible for a large percentage of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions and any waste that is not recycled is increasing our need for new, raw materials to be produced. That means that, by recycling, we not only reduce emissions from landfill sites but help save the planet’s natural resources, reducing carbon dioxide emissions from the forestry, mining and quarrying industries and protecting the natural habitats of the world’s wildlife in the process.

Here are a few facts that will prove to you just how much each scrap of recycled material matters:

  • 1 recycled tin can saves enough energy to power a television for 3 hours!
  • 1 recycled glass bottle saves enough energy to power a computer for 25 minutes!
  • Recycling paper uses 70% less energy than making paper from scratch!

It’s staggering seeing the difference we can make with just a few changes to our disposal habits. That’s why we’ve made sure that our recycling centres are the best in the business and why, for your peace of mind, we provide waste transfer notes for all your waste, so you can see exactly where it went and what it was used for. See for yourself how much recycling can change the world, and if you’re as impressed as we are, you can give us a call to book our services today.
