Generally, you can hire one of our skips for 1 – 2 weeks but we can accommodate longer hiring periods depending on your individual requirements. Please remember that if you’re placing your skip on a public highway you will need us to arrange a permit for you. As we are fully licensed and registered waste carriers with the council we can do this on your behalf.
We recommend booking your skip in advance as we may need to apply for a permit. If the skip is going on private property we can sometimes provide same day or next day delivery, depending on availability and time of booking. We can provide you with an AM or PM slot and someone will need to be in to accept delivery.
If placing the skip on a public road then you will need a permit. We need up to 7 days to arrange this from the local authority. Most skip hire permits are valid for up to 2 weeks but can be extended for an additional cost.
When filling your skip, you should be mindful of what you are putting in it as there are certain items which you can’t put in it. This includes food and animal waste, liquids, electrical goods (TV’s fridges etc), plasterboard, asbestos, batteries, tins of paint, tyres, medical waste, gas cylinders, solvents and fuels. You can dispose of soil and rubble in our skips but we need to be notified at time of booking due to the weight.
