The campaign to save the Saturday Skip

Monday 25th Febuary

The campaign by the Diglis.com team and local resident John Tandy to save the Waverley Street Skip seems to have paid off. Subject to the Worcester City Council application to the Environment Agency for a license. Although the skip was to reopen on the third of February, we await confirmation and will keep all updated.

  1. We had news today that the skip service will resume on Saturday morning at Waverley Street June 1st and operate from 9 am until 12 noon.

    Thanks to all the hard work done by the Diglis.com Team and local resident John Tandy.

  2. Once more our hard working Worcester City Councillor Lynn Denham has kept her word and made sure that the Waverley Street skip will be back, although only once every two months and not once a month. But it’s better than not having a skip at all:

    Our Saturday Skip Collection Service is back by popular demand!

    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

    This Saturday (11 May) the Skip will be outside 2 – 4 Liverpool Road (WR5 1QH) between 9.00am and midday.

    We’ll be going to a different site every Saturday, visiting each site about once every eight weeks.

    This service is designed for pedestrian users only; private vehicles will not be permitted on site. Loading of waste will be carried out by trained City Council staff only.

    Accepted waste at the Skip: furniture, metals, wood, carpet, garden waste, hard plastics, non-recyclable waste.

    NOT accepted at the Skip: paint, household and garden chemicals, fridges and freezers, plasterboard, hardcore and rubble, mobile phones, batteries, textiles, foil, cooking oil. You can dispose of these items at your local Household Recycling Centre; to find your nearest one please visit http://www.worcestershire.gov.uk/letswasteless​
