Have you ever wondered what happens to the waste, once the Skip is taken away? Well contrary to popular thought, the skip isn’t simply ‘dumped’ in landfill. Every skip load is carefully segregated into recycleables and renewables.
All the waste we collect is taken to our waste sorting site in Yeadon and segregated. Once segregated it is bulked-up onto lorries and taken to these different recycling streams:
Removed and taken away to be recycled.
Removed and sent for recycling.
This can be recycled so is removed and ground.
Soil & Brick
Soil & Brick
Screened using a fine process to remove all bricks and stones, which are crushed to make a 6f2 aggregate for sub bases.
Taken and made into biomass.
Organic waste, such as garden waste, is made into biomass.
Baled up and becomes a valuable recyclable product.
This is shredded, baled and made into Refuse-Derived Fuel (RDF).
Aireborough Skip Hire is committed to being a responsible waste management business. We carefully recycle 80% of everything we take away – but some things we just cant dispose of – they’re considered too hazardous.
Unfortunately, if we find any of these in our skips we will refuse to take it or you may be asked to pay a premium.
