New services at our Somerset Recycling Centre

Over the past few months, we have introduced a few new services at our Southwood Recycling Centre.

Along with our usual waste disposal services, we are now offering a skip hire service and bagged aggregate collection from our Somerset site.

Read on for more information about them.

Somerset skip hire

We’re now offering a same day skip hire service (sta) in and around Somerset for a range of waste streams.

Our 6 and 8 yard skips are able to collect the following waste types:

Our fully qualified operatives will deliver and collect your skip on a day and time that best suits you. Where possible, on weekdays, we aim to offer a same day skip hire service (sta). However, during busier times or for orders placed after 1pm we are normally able to offer skip deliveries and exchanges on the next working day.

Our skip hire includes a 2 week hire period. It is possible for this period to be extended, however, this will need to be agreed before the 2 week hire period ends and may be subject to an additional rental fee.

Hiring one of our skips is easy, you can either call our sales team on 01749 830688, or simply order one using our online shop.

Please note that for online orders we do have a booking cut-off time, so if you need a skip urgently it is best to call our friendly team.
