Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know which size skip I will need?

You can refer to our skip sizes page for guidance, but please contact us for further information.
 

Where can the skip go?

The skip can be delivered onto your garden, house driveway, a building site, or any piece of private land providing you have the owner’s permission.

Is there any waste I cannot put in the skip?

Yes, hazardous waste is not permitted in the skips. Please refer to the hazardous waste section at the bottom of this page for guidance.

Can the skip go on a road?

If you need a skip on a public highway it may be legally to obtain approval via a permit from the local Highways Department. We can take care of obtaining this for you, which takes up to 10 working days. Once we have obtained the permit, it will last for 28 days. There is a small additional fee for obtaining the permit, so please get in touch with us so we can provide you with a quote.

How long can I keep my skip?

Our skips are usually hired out for 7-10 days. However, we are more than happy to be flexible on this, so please speak to one of our team if you need the skip longer. If you fill the skip before the 7-10 day period please give us a call and we will collect it when you are ready.

How full am I able to load the skip?

We would recommend that the skips are not overloaded for health and safety reasons. Therefore, please ensure that the waste is level with the top of the skip.

What happens to my waste?

Once we have collected the skip, the waste will be sorted through in our waste transfer station by our expert team. We will re-use and recycle as much waste as possible.
