About us – The Magazine with Real Pulling Power

We are the voice of the industry

We are Skip & Waste magazine – here to help bring together the recycling, skip hire and waste management communities via our monthly magazine and electronic platforms loved by thousands of readers.

Skip & Waste magazine began way back in the summer of 2005 as a tiny publication, which we thought might well be useful to the industry. It started off in humble fashion, and as years went by, it grew into what it is today.

In the early days, it was conceived as a publication sent out to skip hire yards. It was given a thumbs up by drivers, picking station workers, office staff and senior management – the whole company.

Then it was ever so subtly called The Skip (there’s a real surprise) and went out to just a few hundred companies.

Fast forward to today, and we have created a veritable monster. The Skip was creatively rebranded in January 2023 to the Skip & Waste magazine, and now we boast of distributing to a database of over 45,000 companies. Our monthly tone has got a whole lot glossier, a whole lot bigger, and a whole lot better.

We get invited to every industry show and exhibition in the UK, and are greeted like old friends by people in the industry from John O’Groats to Lands’ End.

The magazine is published by PAL Media Limited, a division of PAL Group in Hazel Grove, near Stockport.
