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 18 Mega Skip Days a year after figures showed they led to an 11% decrease in fly-tipping.

Dates and locations

Mega skips are located in different areas across the borough.
