Newport customer dumped caravan in skip after checking first if it was ok
Driver Tyrone Covell, 43, found a caravan in a skip in Newport, south Wales.
The skip was booked by a male customer who checked if the carvan was a prohibited item before ditching it.
“They asked about what they could and couldn’t put in the skip and I sent them over the list but of course we didn’t say you can’t put a caravan in there as it’s blatantly obvious you can’t put a caravan in a skip,” says Melissa Hodges, marketing manager at hire fire GD Environmental.
“I had to call the customer and tell them we couldn’t pick it up. I think they were just trying to push their luck. We told them to demolish the caravan and we’d come back and pick it up so that’s what they did. It wasn’t a really heavy caravan but I still have no idea how they got it up there.”
Rraders are invited the spot the difference between the skip blocking the road and a carvan.
