Use our online form to order a skip for general waste.

The University's waste contractor is Biffa, who acquired our previous waste contractor, O'Brien's, in July 2017. Contact Biffa by email at or by phone on 0191 262 2453.

70-80% of skip contents are recycled.

If you're a Newcastle University staff member or contractor, use this form to order your skip online.

If you want to order skips from another company, you must discuss this with the Sustainability Team. There are legal and insurance issues which must be met.

All skips must be covered and lockable unless they're located in a compound. This is to reduce fly tipping, Health and Safety risks, and visual disturbance and nuisance.

You can also use this form to notify the contractor when your skip is ready to be exchanged (swapped for an empty one) or collected (removed from site).
