Materials recycling and waste segregation

Nationwide Services can help save you money and increase your recycling rates by advising on waste segregation. Some of the most common waste types arising from construction projects are as follows:

Floor coverings


Asphalt & tar

Tiles & ceramics
Inert soils


Hire periods for skips vary throughout the industry, but we will make sure that you do not fall foul to additional hire charges by giving you clear advice at the point of enquiry and managing the hire and collection process for you.

The skip hire industry charge different rates depending on the skip size and waste type(s) you are disposing of. We will obtain a waste description from you at the point of enquiry to ensure you receive an accurate fixed price quotation for each skip you hire.

If you are hiring a mixed waste skip, the following waste types are disallowed and will incur additional charges if you mix them in with your other waste. Asbestos, televisions, computers and monitors, fridges, freezers, car tyres, mattresses, plasterboard, chemicals, oils, solvents, medical waste (needles), fluorescent tubes, paint tins (part or full).

It’s always best to give an accurate waste description and we will help you with this.

Unless the skips are for a construction site, we always recommend that our customers should consider protecting the surface where a skip is going to be placed. Skips are constructed of steel plate and can weigh several tonnes when fully loaded. Soft surfaces or block paved areas are especially at risk. Use sheets of ply or chipboard or six 6’ft lengths of 3” x 2” timber batten to protect the surface where the skip is going to be placed.
