Additional Terms and conditions specific to the Waste m8 service

POSITIONING THE BAG

Do this before you start to fill it. You may not be able to move it later and any attempt to do so may result in you damaging the bag or hurting yourself.

Please also note that our lorries will not drive on to block paving or drives due to the risk of damage, unless you have given us permission to do so.

The skip bag should be placed on your own property, and not placed on any public land unless an appropriate license has been obtained. Your skip bag should be placed not more than 3.5 metres from the edge of the kerb or from the side of the lorry.  

The bag must be well clear of any walls, trees, parked cars, overhead wires or anything else that might obstruct the operation of the crane.

FILLING THE BAG

Distribute your waste and its weight evenly and do not overload or fill the bag above the top edge. Maximum 1 tonne or 1000kgs for all skip bags.

The “mega bag” and “hippo skip” sized bags should not be used for heavy and dense waste such as bricks, concrete, masonry, heavy wood or other such waste streams. If you have this type of waste please use the standard 1 yard skip bag or a “midi bag”.

We will not collect hazardous waste in your skip bag/rubbish. Hazardous waste includes, but is not limited to, fridges, freezers, liquid waste of any description, paint, asbestos, batteries, gas bottles, food, human, animal or clinical waste.
