How do I know what size skip I need?
We provide a wide range of skip sizes from 2 to 16 yard capacity. If you are disposing of heavy waste such as soil, muck or concrete an 8 yard skip is the largest size available. Larger sizes are only suitable for light waste. The dimensions of our skips can be found on the Skip Hire page. If you are unsure of what size best suits your requirements please call us for advice.
Where will the skip be left?
Ideally the skip should be placed on your property, i.e: driveway or garden. If it has to go on the road or a parking bay a license needs to be obtained.
How much can I put into the skip?
The skip must not be loaded to a level higher than the top
What type of waste do you take – Is there anything I can’t put in the skip?
Household rubbish, garden waste, builders waste and heavy waste such as soil and concrete. Some potentially hazardous materials are excluded such as asbestos, fridges, freezers, batteries and tyres
Can you just put a skip on the road without permission?
No, but we arrange that whole side of things. We make sure that we have ‘on-road’ permits arranged before we go ahead with providing our service.
How long can I hire the skip for?
You can hire your skip for up to 2 weeks. If you think you’ll need the skip for longer this needs to be agreed when placing the order.
Are you licensed?
We are fully licensed waste carriers so you can rest easy as everything is being done by professionals.
Do you recycle?
We recycle around 80% of the waste we collect. We are an ethical company, and protecting the environment is part of our ethos. We believe that we run our business in a very environmentally friendly manner and are always striving to increase our recycling quota.
How can I pay for the skip?
You can pay by credit / debit card, either by calling the booking line on 020 8528 3080 or via our online booking service. Alternatively you can pay by cash on delivery (telephone bookings only)
