What our customers are saying

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What size skip do I need for a home renovation project?

Consider the scale of your renovation. For small projects, a mini skip might suffice, but for larger renovations, you might need a builders’ skip. We can help you estimate the size based on the details of your project.

How do I get a permit for a skip if I don't have a driveway?

If you need to place the skip on a public road, you’ll require a permit from the local council. We can arrange this for you; just let us know when you book your skip.

Can I put garden waste in my skip?

Absolutely, garden waste is perfectly fine to include in your skip.

What can't I put in a skip?

You can’t put hazardous materials, electricals, tyres, or fridges in skips due to environmental regulations. If you’re unsure about an item, just ask us.

What happens to the waste once it's collected?

We sort and process the waste at our recycling facilities, aiming to recycle as much as possible to reduce environmental impact.

Is there a weight limit for the skip?

Yes, there are weight limits, especially for larger skips. Overloading can cause safety issues and may incur additional charges.

How far in advance do I need to book a skip?

It’s best to book at least a few days ahead to ensure you get the skip size you need and to arrange any necessary permits. However, we’ll always do our best to accommodate your schedule.
