Skip FAQ

How do I book a skip?

You can book a skip by phone, email or the contact us forms – see our Contact Us page

What's the standard size of a skip?

Our most popular skip is the ‘‘8yd yard skip’‘ (that’s 8 cubic yards of volume) or ‘8 yard builder’s skip’ as it’s also known – see our size guide for more info including full dimensions.

Delivery and collection and turnaround times?

We pride ourselves on a reliable service – we will come when we say we will and will quickly clear skips from your drive, premise or site – same day or next day normally, and you can book ahead as needed.

We will factor in our existing journeys and logistics to plan the best route for fuel efficiency for environmental and cost reasons.

How long can I keep the skip?

We typically allow customers to keep a skip for 4 weeks, after that a rental charge may be required (not without us first discussing it of course!). This is to keep skips coming back into circulation for the benefit of all customers.

How much does it cost to hire a skip?

Please get in touch to discuss our pricing – we can provide you with a copy of our price list and talk you through it over the phone.

Do you recycle my waste?

All the waste we collect goes back to our Waste Recycling facility in Saxilby, where we separate and recycle it, diverting 99% of waste we take in from landfill. We’re extremely proud of this and our commitment to sustainability and the environment.

Where can I put my skip?

Ideally the skip will be placed on your driveway, garden or on site. If there is no space, then you can put it on the road but you’ll need a permit from the local council. We can advise you on this when you get in touch. If you can’t get a permit, then we offer a ‘wait and load’ service that may work for the situation.

To get a skip into your access, we typically need 9ft wide entrance and a space that is 12 feet long. You may also want to consider the surface of your drive and whether it needs protecting with plywood.

Is there anything I cannot put into my skip?

In accordance with current legislation, the following cannot be put in a skip…     batteries, electrical appliances, fridges, fridge freezers and air conditioning units, fluorescent light tubes, paints (including residues inside paint cans), asbestos, fire extinguishers, gas bottles, solvents, aerosols, liquids, oil, fuel and other automotive fluids, tyres, TV monitors, clinical or medical waste and hazardous or toxic materials.

If any of these items are found in one of our skips the skip will be returned to the address in question and fines may be incurred.

We are permitted to receive Asbestos – please get in touch to discuss your requirements and arrange appropriate skip types or to bring it into the yard.

Are there any skip loading requirements?

Overfilled and over-weight skips will not be accepted by our drivers – they are dangerous to transport on the road – if the driver judges a skip to be unsafely loaded the driver will discuss the best course of action with you and they may aid you in tipping some of the contents of the skip out etc. Our drivers are responsible for their loads on the road and so have complete discretion with this.

What areas do you cover?

Please see our Transport Areas list on the skip hire page and/or get in touch to discuss your requirements.
