Skip

Full details on waste management on Cripley Meadow can be found here.

The skip, by the main entrance gate, is available to all members. It is only to be used for waste that cannot be processed or disposed of in any other way. You must take your recyclables home. Remember…

  • The skip‘s contents go to landfill
  • Skip hire is expensive – it’s one of our major discretionary costs.

Meanwhile, here is a list of things that can legitimately go into the skip: broken glass, panes of glass, rotten carpet, cracked/torn black plastic, broken plastic flower pots and plant trays, broken polystyrene plant trays, painted wood, broken tools, old roofing felt. Please squash things down as much as possible so that we are not paying to dispose of air. Also, be mindful of light things blowing out (plastic can end up in the nearby river).

Here is a list of things that must not be put into the skip (they are specifically prohibited by our skip supplier): TVs/monitors, plasterboard, asbestos, batteries, car tyres and rubber wheels, medical waste, fluorescent tubes, gas cylinders, electrical items, solvents, paint tins (oil and acrylic), fuels (petrol or diesel) and oils, fridges.
Note: You must not bring anything on-site purely to dispose of it in the skip. This is dumping. It is illegal and could lead to your eviction.
