Rubbish Removal FAQSkip Hire
When choosing a skip, there are various considerations which will impact upon what skip size and type is the most suitable, such as where you plan to place it and what you plan to put inside of it. We have detailed the main skips below but we can provide almost any type of skip.

What can go in a skip?
Skips are generally quite a flexible waste removal solution. However, there are restrictions on what waste can go in a skip and restrictions on the mixing of waste types.
Generally, standard household and business bulky waste can be thrown in, as well as standard garden and construction waste.
What cannot go in a skip?
If you are placing your skip on the public highway you will need a skip permit. Skip permits are issued by your local council and they can vary considerably from area to area.
In most areas, we will provide the skip permit for you and we will simply pass on the additional cost.
As skip permits expire, we must ensure your skip has been removed by this date. This means that if you haven't requested a collection, your skip may have to be taken, regardless of whether or not you have finished using it. This is because it is a legal requirement to have a valid skip permit.
If you plan to place your skip on the road, you may need to contact us to get the most up-to-date pricing.

Filling a skip
Filling a skip is a fairly easy task for most people - the challenge is filling it properly and efficiently.
We recommend breaking items down to minimise the volume and placing the waste in the skip in an efficient manner. If you just ‘chuck’ items in the skip there's likely going to be a lot of gaps which you may not be able to utilise.
