What can go in a skip? Get ready for spring cleaning

Posted on 7th March 2016

Spring is in the air (just), and as the leaves reappear on the trees, the sun holds out for just a little longer in the evenings, and the frost in your garden is thawing, it's time to throw open those windows, blow away the cobwebs and get down to some serious cleaning.

The winter months can be tough on our homes – whole families cooped up indoors, heating on full, rooms packed with festive food, gifts and packaging – but just as you've all vowed to hit the gym and slim down this year, it's high time you slimmed down the mess in your house too.

Whether it's the cobwebs, dust, and a season's accumulated sofa-crack crumbs that you're hoping to clear out, or if you've got loftier ambitions of home renovation and garden landscaping – skip hire can play an invaluable role in your spring cleaning.

But before you get started, and before you go throwing the entire contents of your kitchen into the skip, take a look at our handy infographic below to find out exactly what you can and can't put in a skip.
