What Car Parts Can I Put In A Skip?

With over 40 million cars in the UK, there are plenty of people who may be looking to dispose of certain parts. Whether you’re an enthusiast looking to upgrade your vehicle or you have a car so old that parts have fallen off, you might be curious about the best way to dispose of car parts.

Here at SCS Waste, we provide a reliable skip hire service where we aim to recycle as much of your waste as possible. So can you put car parts in our skips? The answer to this question all depends on the materials in question and their condition. To help guide you, we’ve got more details this month of which car parts you can and cannot put in our skips, and the reasons why.

Sometimes, your local garage may be able to take old tyres as they will have the proper means to send them for recycling. Another option is to find specialist tyre collections or to upcycle them into furniture.

These materials are usually found in the lining or padding of the item in question.

So whether you love to tinker with your car at home or you run a commercial garage and need to dispose of car parts, we’re here to help with a disposal and recycling service you can count on.
