Mega Skip Days

Mega Skip Days are an opportunity for people to dispose of bulky items for free.

Large skips are placed in neighbourhoods around the borough for all local residents to use. We are now running Mega Skip Days twice a month after figures showed they helped lead to a 16% reduction in fly-tipping.
