Pick the skip you want, and we’ll arrange to deliver it. Once you’ve filled it, just let us know, and we’ll collect it and return it to our waste recycling centre. Our skips are suitable for all household waste and business waste, though advise us if you intend to dispose of hazardous waste.
RORO Skip Hire
There are some waste clearance jobs that are just too large for even a skip to handle. For instance, large construction sites, property developments, or other large commercial or industrial jobs will generate enough waste to quickly fill even the largest skip.
For these jobs, you can hire one of our RORO skips. RORO stands for ‘Roll-On-Roll-Off’, which refers to the way the skip rolls on and off the flatbed of the lorry that transports it. These skips are formidable in size, starting at 15yrds and maxing out at 40yrds!
Because of the specialist requirements to transport these skips, they are priced on a haulage and tonnage basis. A haulage fee will also apply even if collection or delivery is not possible. For this reason, we suggest that you carefully evaluate whether a skip would be sufficient for your needs.
From household waste to business waste, from hazardous waste to non-hazardous waste, the price for disposal will vary depending on what it is you’re disposing of. As of April 2021, we updated the price list on our website. It now reflects how much you’ll expect to pay per tonne for disposing of different waste types.
The chart also lists what the minimum accepted amount and price will be, so please take note before you contact us to arrange waste collection. You’ll also find prices for individual items, such as mattresses, fridges, freezers, TVs, etc.
All prices on our website are listed plus VAT at the standard rate, and we accept cash or card payments.
All companies are welcome to visit our recycling centre to make use of our weighbridge. The only condition is that you must hold a valid waste carrier’s licence. So long as you do, you can just drive onto the weighbridge to weigh any waste that you’d like to dispose of. We charge by the tonne for all waste that you bring to us.
You can also establish a regular service – simply fill out the form on our website to receive a bespoke quotation. We provide a professional, courteous service that accounts for your situation and offers the most competitive prices for waste disposal available.
Safe Asbestos Removal
Asbestos is a highly hazardous material that was once commonly used in construction. While its use is now prohibited, it is often found in buildings throughout the UK. When it’s disturbed, damaged, sawn, or drilled into, asbestos-containing materials release fibres into the air. These fibres enter the lungs and lead to serious, even terminal illnesses.
At FDS Waste Services Ltd, we supply asbestos bins specifically designed for the collection and containment of asbestos-containing materials. Plus, our team are highly trained and fully licenced to collect and dispose of asbestos safely. They’ll know precisely what to look for and the best way to extract and contain the contaminated materials without causing undue risk to you or your family.
WEEE Removal and Recycling
WEEE (Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment) is one of the fastest-growing waste streams in the world. As our lives revolve more and more around appliances and gadgets, more and more electronic and electrical devices need to be disposed of.
The issue with WEEE items is that they usually contain hazardous materials, such as lead, cadmium, and mercury, that can leach into the environment. This can harm humans and animal life and prove highly destructive to the environment.
In line with the Environmental Protection Act 1990 – Part II, Waste Management Licencing Regulations 1994 (as amended), Regulations 17 and 18, and Schedule 3, all WEEE must be stored and recycled correctly.
Under no circumstances must WEEE be placed alongside household waste or business waste in landfill sites. If you have WEEE to dispose of, let the team at FDS Waste Services Ltd know, and we’ll provide you with a safe, affordable, and legally compliant solution.
