Skip Donation to Mission Christmas 2023!

TJ Waste has donated a skip free of charge to Mission Christmas, a Cash for Kids campaign that provides support to children living in poverty at Christmas. This is the third year running that TJ has made this donation.

This year’s Mission Christmas was launched on 13 November. Cash for Kids South’s Charity Manager, Samantha Tanner, contacted TJ Waste’s General Manager, Luke Haskell a few weeks back to ask for assistance, and he was more than happy to help. 

TJ delivered a 12-yard ‘jumbo’ skip to the Mission Christmas HQ in Hedge End on 6 November and will collect it when the campaign ends on 23 December. If the skip becomes full before this end date, TJ has agreed to swap it for an empty one at no charge.

All the waste removed will be transported to one of our Materials Recovery Facilities, either in Southampton or Portsmouth, for sorting and recycling. As many waste items as possible will be recycled or reused in line with our policy to divert all we can from landfill.

We have established recycling routes for a wide range of materials from the standard recyclables to the trickier ones, and we process all waste items in line with WRAP (Waste and Resources Action Programme) protocol. 

TJ hires out skips for up to two weeks at a time as standard, (unless agreed otherwise) offering a 5% discount for those returned within four days. We have skips ranging in size from 2 yard ‘mini’ skips, up to 12 yard ‘jumbo’ skips, with three sizes in between and larger 17 and 35 yard roll on, roll off skips ideal for construction and demolition work.

Cash for Kids is a grant-giving charity run by Wave 105, which is part of Bauer Media, a worldwide media group that operates the largest commercial radio network in the UK. Their mission is to improve the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in our communities who are affected by poverty, illness, neglect or have additional needs. 

They believe that all children should be able to express their individuality, achieve their potential and live life to the full. They work with grass-roots organisations that aim to make a difference to young lives, directly supporting families who often have nowhere else to go. In 2022, Cash for Kids raised £20.4 million across the UK, supporting 489,409 children.

Charity Manager at Cash for Kids South, Samantha Tanner, said: “A big thank you to TJ waste, who have supplied us with a skip – which we can exchange for an empty one when full – which helps us to clear the warehouse as we go and keep it safe. Lovely companies like TJ Waste make it much easier for us to make Mission Christmas happen and we really appreciate your help!”

You can get involved in Mission Christmas by donating a gift for a child, or by making a one-off donation or monthly contribution. All gift donations must be new and unwrapped and taken to one of the drop-off points across the UK. Visit for  more info.
