Frequently Asked Questions

Our customers ask us a number of common questions ahead of hiring a skip, such as what you can or can't put in. Take a look at our FAQs below:

What am I not allowed in my skip?

We are not legally allowed to take away any of the following:

  • Electrical equipment
  • Hazardous or domestic waste
  • Plasterboard – this must be reclaimed
  • Gas bottles
  • Clinical waste
  • Oils or other liquids

If you're unsure about what you can use your skip for, give us a call and we'll be able to answer any queries.

How much waste can I put in my skip?

Our skips come in a wide range of different sizes:

  • 2 - 4 cubic yards
  • 7 - 12 cubic yards
  • 15 - 35 cubic yards

If you're unsure which size you need, we've used a visual of bin bags to show you how much each sized skip holds on the Skip Hire page.

What do I do when my skip is full?

Once you’ve filled your skip or if you’ve just used all that you need, give us a call to arrange for one of our friendly team to collect and dispose of the contents.

We offer same or next delivery for our skips (subject to availability), so if you do find that you're in need of these services again we can arrange this hassle free.

Will a skip take up much room?

The room the skip will take up depends on the size that you choose. But don't let the lack of space put you off hiring what you need; as we provide a full comprehensive service, we source permits for skip if you don't have the space for this on your premises.

We do hire out mini-skips that are perfect if you're having a clean out and need a smaller size for unused household objects.
