We have attempted to answer the most common questions we get asked but if you require any further help or advice please do not hesitate to contact us and one of our expert waste advisors will be more than happy to help.
Q. How much does it cost to hire a skip?
The price depends on the size of skip that you hire. If you’re unsure of what is the correct size please get in touch. We are always happy to help.
Q. Is there anything I can’t put in the skip?
- Fridges/Fridge Freezers
- Computer Screens
- fluorescent Light Tubes and any other form of Light Tube
- Gas Cylinders or Pressurised Containers
- No Liquids, i.e Oil, Paint, Fuel including residue left in Tins/Cans etc
Q. How and when do we pay?
You can pay by credit/debit card over the phone. We also accept cash or cheque on delivery. However, the cheque must have cleared before the skip will be collected.
Q. How long can I keep the skip for?
Skips are hired for up to 7 to 10 days unless otherwise agreed. If you would need longer, please call us on 01432 353536 to discuss this.
Q. What is “Wait & Load”?
Wait & Load is a service we offer at no extra cost.
When the driver delivers the skip, he will wait for up to 30 minutes while you to fill the skip.
He will then take it away.
This eliminates the need to obtain permits, and is also ideal if you don’t want a skip sat outside your house.
Q. How high can we load the skip?
Skips must be loaded no higher than the vertical sides of the skip.
The use of boards to build the sides up is prohibited.
Most importantly, the skip must be loaded securely and responsibly so that it is safe for road transport.
Q. Where are the skips taken to be emptied?
All skip waste is taken to licensed waste transfer stations. Here it is processed for recycling.
Q. Can you put skips on a road?
Yes, we can place skips on a road; we need two days notice to arrange a license from the council.
The cost of this is £30 and covers you for up to one week.
