Here at Smiths Skips we are dedicated to recycling. Gone are the days of skips being taken directly to landfill sites!

Every skip we collect is tipped in our transfer Station and the contents are sorted into categories.

By doing this we are able to take out all the waste that can be recycled and minimise the amount that goes to landfill.

We currently recycle all of these wastes:

  • All types of wood
  • All 'inert' waste (i.e. bricks, rubble, soil, sand, concrete etc(
  • Glass
  • Degradable waste (i.e. tree cuttings, grass, hedge clippings etc(
  • All types of paper and card
  • All types of scrap metal
  • Plus many others...
