Community Skips

Arrangements have been made for Community Skips to be provided in 2019 as follows:

Urchfont Playing Field – 1st Saturday each month - 5th October, 2nd November and 7th December

Wedhampton – 2nd Saturday of every other month - 12th October and 14th December

Urchfont – The Croft – 4th Saturday each month - 26th October, 23rd November and 28th December.

Please deposit items in the skip sensibly to maximise usage. If the skip is full when you visit, please do NOT leave items piled on the ground around it. Please do not leave items on the ground in anticipation of skip arrival.

Remember to utilise Wiltshire Council kerbside collection services and NOT the Community Skips for food waste, paper, bottles, plastic bottles, cardboard etc.

The community mini-skips are provided by UPC to assist householders in the community to dispose of ad hoc unwanted household waste that cannot be put in the kerbside wheelies or taken to the household waste disposal centres for whatever reason, this can include small quantities of garden green / wood waste or soil but is mainly for small furniture and household appliances, fixtures and fittings.

The Community Skips are NOT TO BE USED for the disposal of heavy / large quantities of household / garden project waste (e.g. paving slabs, concrete, heavy rocks and internal / external demolition waste). You must hire your own skip for such disposal.

Please do not put hazardous materials in the skips – the contractor is not licensed to take the following:  car batteries, chemicals, gas bottles, asbestos, fluorescent light tubes, tyres, fridges, freezers or paint.

Dates for 2020 starting in February will be published in due course

Chipper / Shredder? - At their meeting on 13th December 2017, the Parish Council noted that no material was deposited for shredding over the arranged weekend of 2nd/3rd December 2017 and that usage in 2016 had reduced to a minimal level. In view of this the decision was taken not to provide this annual service in 2018 or for the future.
