FAQ’s

What is skip hire, and when might I need it?

Skip hire involves renting a large waste container, known as a skip, to dispose of various types of waste. You might need skip hire for home renovations, construction projects, garden clear-outs, or when dealing with large amounts of household or commercial waste.

What skip sizes do you offer, and how do I choose the right one?

We offer a range of skip sizes, including mini skips, midi skips, builders' skips, and roll-on-roll-off (RORO) skips. The size you need depends on the amount of waste you have. Our team can assist you in selecting the appropriate skip size based on your requirements.

How long can I hire a skip for?

The standard skip hire duration is usually between 7 to 14 days. However, we can accommodate flexible hire periods based on your specific project needs. Just let us know the duration you require, and we'll do our best to accommodate it.

Where can I place the skip?

Skips are typically placed on private property, such as driveways or construction sites. If you need to place the skip on public property, like a road or pavement, you may need a permit from the local council. Don't worry; we can assist you in obtaining the necessary permits if required.

What items are not allowed in the skip?

Certain items are prohibited from being disposed of in skips due to environmental regulations and safety concerns. Prohibited items often include hazardous materials, asbestos, electrical appliances, medical waste, and large tree stumps. We will provide you with a comprehensive list of restricted items.

How high can I load the skip?

For safety and transportation purposes, skips should not be loaded beyond their sides. Overloading a skip can lead to unsafe conditions and may incur additional charges. Please ensure that the waste remains level with the top edges of the skip.

Do I need to be present during the skip delivery and collection?

You don't necessarily need to be present during delivery or collection unless there are specific access instructions or gates that need to be unlocked. Just let us know where you want the skip placed, and we'll take care of the rest.

What happens to the waste once the skip is collected?

We take environmental responsibility seriously. After collection, we transport the waste to licensed recycling centres or waste management facilities, where it is sorted, processed, and recycled whenever possible. We aim to minimise landfill disposal and maximise recycling efforts.

Can I put a skip on the roadside without a permit?

In most cases, placing a skip on public property requires a permit from the local council. Without a permit, you risk facing fines and penalties. We recommend obtaining the necessary permit before placing the skip on the roadside.
