What Types Of Waste Can Be Disposed Of Using A RoRo Skip?

Please remember that you are legally responsible for the contents inside the RoRo skip you hire. As such, you need to ensure that the waste which is disposed of via a RoRo skip hire service is non-hazardous material and that the skip is not overloaded; as an overloaded skip is a hazard.

In the event of an overloaded skip, our lorry drivers reserve the right to remove excess waste from the RoRo, or refuse to remove the RoRo skip (which may incur a wasted journey charge). Additionally, it is also important to remember that you must never set fire to the waste in your RoRo.

However it is important to remember that just like other forms of waste disposal via skip hire services, you cannot dispose of hazard waste using a general waste skip.

So, if you are interested in RoRo skip hire, please make sure that the contents do not contain:

  • Electrical Appliances,
  • Fluorescent Light Tubes,
  • Batteries,
  • Fridges,
  • Freezers And Air-Conditioning Units,
  • TV’s And Monitors,
  • Paints (This Including Residues Inside Paint Cans),
  • Solvents,
  • Aerosols And Gas Canisters,
  • Liquids,
  • Oil, Fuel, And Other Automotive Fluids,
  • Plasterboard,

Please note that if you would like to dispose of plasterboard, we recommend a Jumbo Bag waste disposal service. The Jumbo Bag is recommended for Gypsum based construction waste EWC 17 08 02 (such as plasterboard) which is required to be collected separately for environmental legislation purposes.

  • Asbestos,
  • Tyres,
  • Clinical Or Medical Waste,
  • Toxic Materials,
  • Large Tree Trunks.

Unless you have notified RTS Waste prior to order, an extra disposal fee may be charged if unsuitable waste (such as the waste mentioned in the list above) is found inside a RoRo skip. This is because our skips are hired for general waste disposal, and the disposal of hazardous waste materials requires alternative disposal methods which are designed for the disposal of such waste.

If you need to dispose of hazardous waste, RTS Waste can provide a specialised waste disposal solution. To request a hazardous waste disposal service or to make an enquiry, please contact our team of waste specialists using the contact information at the bottom of this page.

This makes it ideal for office clear outs, shop fit outs, or other projects that generate waste timber, or other bulky, lightweight materials. For heavy materials such as hardcore and soils from demolition on construction sites, the best waste disposal solution is grab hire or 6 yard skip hire. This is due to the weight limits allowed by vehicles on public highways.
