What size skip do I need?

Skips must be level filled, NO greedy boards and NO fires.
What can’t I put in my skip?
We cannot take fridges and freezers. Contact your local council for a collection service.
We also cannot accept full paint tins, any polluting or hazardous substances such as oil, fire extinguishers or gas bottles.
Paint must be dried (leave the lid off for a week).
Asbestos, tyres, glass and plasterboard can be taken only with prior arrangement with our office.
All unacceptable waste will be unloaded from the skip on collection or returned to the customer after sorting of the skip.
My skip is NOT on private property, where can I place it?
If your skip cannot be placed on your property and has to be placed on the highway, verge or footpath then a Road Permit will need to be applied for. We will arrange this with the relevant Highways Authority and 5 working days is required for this to be processed. The road permit costs £65 + vat per licence and the Highways Authority reserve the right to refuse a licence. Lights and cones are included.
A one day road licence is available for £30+vat. 5 working days is required for this to be processed.
How long does a licence last?
The maximum period per licence is one month, after this time, the license has to be renewed.
What happens if I can’t get a licence?
For times when skips cannot be placed on the highway or the rubbish is ready to load, a wait and load could be the perfect solution. The skip is dropped and filled straight away, when the skip is full it is taken away. No hassle, no clogging up driveways, just wait and load. This is the same price as a normal skip and has 30 minutes loading time.
How long can I keep the skip for?
Most skips can be on site for up to three weeks, however with prior arrangement with our office staff skips can be on site for a negotiated period of time. The maximum hire period is 3 months.
How can I pay for my skip?
We accept all major cards apart from American Express. Payment must be taken over the phone before delivery of your skip. Accounts can be opened after a month of trading. We also accept BACS transfers.
How much notice do I need to give?
We usually require one days notice to deliver, exchange or collect your skip. With prior arrangement with our office staff we can offer an out of hours service or a turn around service for excavation works.
