Frequently Asked Questions
Have some questions? Our FAQs should help you. If you have another question please feel free to contact us.
What isn't allowed in domestic skips?
Items which can’t be thrown into a skip are often known as hazardous waste; these are waste types which may cause harm to the environment or damage the health of individuals. These updates came in March 2011 and have become set-in-stone waste regulations.
Some common examples of items which can’t be thrown into a skip are asbestos, gas cylinders, animal waste, explosives, batteries, oil of any kind, chemicals, paint and glue, televisions, laptops, phones, electrical equipment, lighting and tyres.
Where can I put my skip?
When opting for this service, people usually place their skip either on a driveway, on the road outside their house, or in their garden.
There are several options available to you when it comes to skip placement, but your individual property and situation will no doubt shape which choice you make.
Some people find their hands forced by the way their property is laid out and the location, while others may have numerous options available to them. If you have any queries about the placement of your skip, ask a member of our team.
Do I need permission to hire a skip?
Before you place a skip on any public highway or road (including a pavement) you need to have a skip permit from the local council. There is no requirement for a permit if you put a skip on private land, such as your driveway, field or private road.
If you do need a skip permit, we can help with your application to the local council to get one.
How long does a skip permit take?
It often takes at least 3 days to arrange a skip permit, so remember to allow for this when planning. Check with your local council to make sure, so you aren’t caught out. Alternatively, we can assist with getting a skip permit for your skip hire.
How do I know what size skip I need?
It is important to choose the right sized skip – too small and you will have unwanted waste left over with the prospect of having to get another skip, whilst a skip that is too large will cost more than you need to pay and take up unnecessary space on your site or property.
Skips are measured in cubic yards, with sizes ranging from 2 yards to 35 yards. Whatever you’re working on, there’s sure to be a skip to meet your specific requirements – it’s just a matter of selecting the right one. Our team will be able to advise you on the right sized skip for your project.
How long can I keep domestic skips?
How do I arrange for the skip to be emptied?
When you are ready to have your skip collected to be emptied, just give us a call or email us, and we will arrange it. Please give us at least 24 hours notice.
What happens to removed waste?
We endeavour to recycle as much collected waste as possible during our residential skip hire service. The first stage in the recycling process is to sort through the skip contents and separate them based on the material type (e.g. wood, aggregates, plastic or metal) ready for processing.
Larger bulky items are removed during this stage before the pre-sorted waste is moved into loading bays. Depending on the material type, this waste is then treated in a variety of different screening, shredding and compacting processes before being reloaded into larger containers ready for transportation to other destinations where the waste will undergo further treatment and recycling procedures.

Whether you’re carrying out large construction and demolition works, renovating your home or garden and in need of a skip, or you’re a business in need of dedicated skip hire, we have the right skip size for you. We provide prompt delivery and collection for a wide range of skip types.
