Landfill waste releases harmful gases into the atmosphere, has a detrimental impact on the environment and exacerbates global warming. Choosing a skip company to manage your unwanted material could see as much as 90% of collected waste recycled. At Pillory Down Skips Ltd, we see cheap skip hire as more than just a service. When you hire a skip for a domestic or commercial project in Coulsdon through us, you also help to reduce landfill use.

Located in Banstead, we’re an established skip company with services available in all Surrey and South West London areas. Choose us for skip hire in unit sizes of 4 yards through to 20 yards, and keep your home, site or workplace organised for the full duration of the job.

This blog post takes a look at the main materials we recycle from skips collected in the Coulsdon area, and also explains how you can hire a skip at a moderate price to keep your own projects moving.

Timber Waste

Because timber is 100% recyclable and manufacturers use it to make household furniture, wood contributes to much of the waste derived from our cheap skip hire services. Our maxi skips and roll-on/roll-off containers have ample space for old wardrobes, bookcases, tables and cabinets from house clearances, and for old fencing panels from garden clearances.

Our skip company returns waste collected from Coulsdon to our own premises in Banstead where we process it for ethical recycling and repurposing.

Metal Waste

At Pillory Down Skips Ltd, we find that most metals come from business clients in the area who hire a skip to separate recyclables from non-recyclables, or who hire multiple skips to keep ferrous and non-ferrous metals apart. Most businesses know not to put metal appliances into our units, but we advise our domestic customers in Coulsdon that we do not provide cheap skip hire for cookers, freezers, microwave ovens and washing machines.

We will always let you know what to do with appliances and other non-permitted waste when you call to hire a skip or container. Our skip company adopts a responsible outlook and does whatever it can to make sure each type of waste material ends up in the right place.

Plastic Waste

Plastic plays a prominent role in our cheap skip hire services because we now use over 20 times more than we did less than 50 years ago. Typically, we separate plastic from our skips into 7 different categories but can only recycle from 4 of them. This makes it more important than ever for your chosen skip company to recycle ethically, and to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill sites around Coulsdon to minimum levels.

Hire a skip from Pillory Down Skips Ltd with confidence knowing we’ll recycle as much as 90% of your waste – and often more – to meet and beat our own environmental initiatives.
