 The skips can accept all types of waste apart from materials classed as dangerous or hazardous. These include asbestos, plasterboard, tyres, monitors, televisions, fridges and liquid wastes (oils and paints). Feel free to call us, if you are in doubt.

Where can I put the skip?

The skips that we supply for domestic use has a capacity of 6 cyds and when filled with rubble or soil is likely to weigh 6 to 8 tonnes. Be warned- a fully loaded skip on the vehicle could weigh around 18 tonnes and may not be suitable for your drive.

Where can I put the skip? Do I need a licence?

You can place your skip on your own property without a licence. But you will need a licence for the skip if it is placed on roads, grass verges or adopted highways.

If you are not sure, please contact us.

Special offer

All our hire costs include delivery and collection and all necessary legislation.  An extra charge is made if the skip is to be placed on the highway, which includes road licence fee and lighting. The cost of licence depends on on how soon before the booking you tell us that the skip needs to go on the road and you will be told when you book.
