We do our best to collect (and recycle) as much waste as we can, but there are unfortunately some waste types that we cannot accept due to safety hazards. If you are just carrying out general work around the house/garden, then there will be nothing to worry about. Below is a list of the waste we can and cannot collect in Derby:
Waste you CAN put in our skip bags:
Furniture, bed & mattresses, boilers, carpets, computers, laptops, printers, concrete cooker, washing machine, sheds, desks, garden trimmings, garden shed, filing cabinets, greenhouses, lawnmowers, photocopiers, musical instruments, radiators, metal, soil, hardcore, green waste, wood, paper, cardboard, polythene, plastics
Waste you CANNOT put in our skip bags:
Asbestos, biological or medical waste, helium or oxygen gas bottles, toxic substances, noxious chemicals, paint (unless empty)
If you are looking to dispose of a waste type that is not mentioned in either of the lists above, feel free to give us a call and we will be able to confirm this with you.
