Saturday Skips

The Saturday Skips Collection Service has restarted, with some alterations to ensure that it operates safely. Sites will be operated on a rota basis, with site receiving a visit approximately every eight weeks.


Date Time Site
08/06/2019 09:00 - 12:00 Weir Lane 
15/06/2019 09:00 - 12:00  Car park at Altaf’s Indian on Tolladine Road
(Please note: pedestrian access only - no cars permitted on site)

The service is designed to provide a free local disposal point for residents who are unable to transport bulky household waste items to a Household Recycling Centre (HRC).  

Residents who are able to transport items to their local HRC should continue to use these facilities which provide a wide range of recycling options.

Mobile household waste collection points are designed for pedestrian users only, private vehicles will not be permitted on site.

Safe zones will be created to ensure that visitors to the site are kept clear of vehicles; in addition loading of waste will be carried out by trained City Council staff only.
