Frequently Asked Questions About Skip Services

How do I know what skip size I’ll need?

This depends on the nature of your project.

Most larger projects – including industrial demolitions or construction – are likely to require a high volume skip, such as a 40-yard open container or hook/roll-on-roll-off skip. If you are still unsure of the size you’ll need, don’t hesitate to contact Maxilead Metals for advice today.

What can go in a skip?

Most industrial metal waste can be put into our skips, including:

  • Low volume waste disposal
  • High volume waste disposal
  • Oversized pieces of metal
  • Moving heavy machinery
  • High-quality grades of metal
  • Scrap Batteries
  • Site Clearance / Demolition Skip

Just take care not to dispose of hazardous waste in a Maxilead skip, or to stack waste beyond the fill line.

What cannot go in a skip?

We ask that you do not place hazardous waste in our skips. This includes material that may be dangerous to individuals or to the environment.

You should avoid placing asbestos, animal or medical waste or corrosive or explosive chemicals in your skip. Other materials that cannot be accepted include paints and oils, gas canisters and tyres.

If you are unsure about whether a certain item can be placed in a skip, contact Maxilead Metals for advice.

How high can I fill the skip?

You should not stack waste higher than this level, as it may cause damage to the container or the vehicle used to collect it – or items may fall out when it is in situ or being moved.

Do You Provide Commercial Skip Services?

Absolutely. Maxilead Metals works primarily with manufacturers, industrial specialists and trade businesses.
