Do not put any of the following in your skip: fridges or freezers, televisions, fluorescent tubes, light bulbs, tyres, asbestos, clinical/medical waste, liquids including oil, paint and solvents, food waste, gas bottles and any hazardous, flammable or toxic material. |
Do not overfill your skip or in any case do not ever light a fire in a skip. This will only cause hassle in the event of the skip being removed and hassle with the company providing you with the skip hire services .
Make sure you hire a big enough skip – one large skip is more cost effective than two smaller ones. If you plan to put the skip on the road or verge outside your house, you’ll need a permit from your council. Give you details at the time of hiring and the skip hire firm can arrange the skip permit for you or assist you (as different conditions apply in different council areas).
The skip industry consists of lots of relatively small operators dotted all across the country. There are no national players. If you search on the web, you will come across websites offering a nationwide skip hire service or national skip hire , but these will be waste management companies and skip brokers who don’t actually operate skip lorries. Look to hire a full service firm who will in turn be able to offer the full service.
