What happens to the waste?
The waste is taken to our Waste Transfer Station in Westcott. We recycle over 99% of all waste collected.
How much can I put into the skip?
Our skips should be filled to the level line. Once level, please arrange your collection online or call the Bucks Recycling office. If the skip is overloaded, it is dangerous. The driver can be stopped and fined by VOSA for transporting the skip on the public highway.
What can I put into a skip?
We are able to accept most items but Hazardous and Special Waste cannot be accepted without prior agreement. This includes, but is not limited to: Asbestos, batteries, clinical waste, computer monitors, corrosive substances, creosote, faeces (animal or human), fluorescent tubes, fridges, freezers, gas cylinders, Japanese knotweed, liquids, nappies, oily wastes, PC monitors, tarmac, televisions, tyres and oversized tree roots.
We can arrange for these to be disposed of separately.
How big are the skip delivery lorries?
We mainly use 18 tonne skip lorries which are 9′ wide and about 11′ 6″ high. We also have 7.5 tonne and 10.5 tonne skip lorries for tighter access, but are only capable of lifting light waste.
Can a skip be placed on a public highway or road?
A permit is needed to place a skip on a road, pavement or verge. Bucks Recycling will obtain the permit on your behalf from the County Council.
How long can I have the skip?
Skips should be ready for collection after 14 days of hire. Longer hire periods can be arranged at the time of booking.
