A mini skip takes up less space than a traditionally sized builders skip and should fit on your property more easily.

This means you will usually be able to have your mini skip placed in a more accessible and convenient spot.
If you need to remove rubbish or unwanted household items, or deal with waste left over from a bathroom or kitchen refit, a small skip hire may be the easiest and most convenient option for you rather than having to take items to the local tip. Save yourself the time, effort and expense of having to make several trips to the tip when you can simply have it removed directly from your property.

How long will I have my small skip hire for?
When you hire a small skip you will have 2 weeks from the day it is deposited until it is collected. We should note that you will need to be present for both deposit and collection of your skip. This is so that the appropriate paperwork can be signed off and to ensure that your small skip hire is as smooth as possible for all parties.
How should I fill my skip / what’s the best approach/method?
We suggest you start by loading in your more bulky and heavier waste – you can then place other items on top of this solid base. Feel free to break down larger objects such as furniture. This helps to be more space efficient. Smaller, loose items can be deposited at the top.
Be sure to not overfill your skip as this may result in the collection driver refusing to remove your skip and you incurring a wasted journey charge. Please fill your skip up to the fill line only.
What items can I place in my skip? What is prohibited?
When you hire a small skip you can fill it with general garden and construction waste. This includes mud, clay, soil, branches etc. You can also include general household waste such as furniture items like tables and chairs etc.
We do have a list of items which are not allowed, including: electrical items (such as TVs, fridges, microwaves), fluorescent tubes, gas bottles and cylinders, aerosols, paint tins, oils, petrol, diesel, mastic tubes, clinical waste, food waste, asbestos, and batteries. We also ask that you not include more than 1 roll of carpet. If you have any doubts or questions about any type of waste you intend to put in the skip, give us a call and we will be able to let you know if it’s permitted or not.
What if I need to dispose of hazardous materials? Is that permitted?
If you have hazardous waste, such as asbestos, that you want to get rid of, you cannot place that in a standard skip. We do however supply specialist skips which are secure and enclosed. If you contact us we will be able to provide you with the information you need according to the type of hazardous waste you need to remove. We are here to help with your skip hire needs.
What if I need a larger skip?
If you think that your small skip hire will not be sufficient for your needs, then we have a huge range of larger skips to choose from. The largest skip that is permitted on UK public roads is our 8 yard builders skip. This skip has dimensions of 12ft x 6ft x 4.5ft (L x W x H) and will hold approximately 80 black bin bags or 16 washing machines.
Our range of skips that can be delivered on a standard skip lorry go all the way up to our large 16 yard skips. Anything bigger than that would be our Roll-on Roll-off (RoRo) skips which are delivered by freight lorry. You can hire a 20,30,35 or 40 yard RoRo skip (call for details).
