Q. What can I put in my skip?
A. We are happy to take most waste that fits into your skip, however, there are items that must legally be collected by a licensed specialist, therefore, we cannot accept hazardous waste items such as paint, asbestos, tyres, batteries, fridges, televisions and other electrical goods. If you aren't sure, please just ask us.

Q. Do you recycle?
A. Of course! URBAN-ENVIRO aims to have as higher percentage of collected waste recycled as possible.

Q. Is URBAN-ENVIRO legally allowed to take my waste away?
A. Absolutely. We are fully licensed, registered and insured.

Q. Do I need a license from the Local Authority (Council) for my skip?
A. Only if you wish to place a skip on the public highway, rather than your own premises. If you don't have a suitable space such as a driveway, garden or land, then Urban Enviro's office team will process your license for you. Fees vary between councils, so please contact us regarding the cost, although this is never more than £40 in Essex.
