Q: What is your skip hire period?

Q: What am I not allowed to put into the skip and why?
A: In line with government waste directives for the treatment of potentially hazardous waste we are not able to handle the following waste items as they require specialist processing:-

-Substances hazardous to health such as toxic or corrosive materials or liquids
-Any liquids of any kind whether contained or not
-Cans, drums or other containers of any kind unless they are empty and crushed: so incapable of carrying any liquid
Medical waste of animal carcasses of any kind or quantity
Any other material not listed above, which is considered unsuitable for containment e.g. malodorous waste
*Asbestos Concrete garage roofs, gutters and downpipes erected before 1991 are LIKELY to contain ASBESTOS. We can organise collection and removal for you, that will incur a separate charge: price on application.

Q: What is the weight limit of your skips?
A: The average weight of a container is approx. 1.7 tonnes.

Q: Why is it important that I do not overfill my skip?
A: Overfilling your skip is against the law and can be extremely dangerous, especially if the skip is placed on a public highway, as contents from your skip may fall or dust may blow onto the highway and cause a serious accident. The laws governing the acceptable use of skips can be found in the Highways Act 1980 - section 139 road traffic regulations act 1984.

Q: Why is it important to specify where my skip will be located & that space available for delivery and collection?
A: It is extremely important that you tell us where you need your skip to be located especially if you are not going to be available. It is also important to remember that if your skip is not going to be located on your property you will need a skip permit.

Q: Do you apply for permit on my behalf?
A: We will apply for the permits on your behalf, please note that application times will differ dependant upon Local Authority and could be 1 day - 1 week for approval.

Q: How do I protect my drive?
A: We can hire a tarpaulin sheet to protect it, but there will be an additional cost.

Q: What happens if I overload the skip?
A: We only except level loads. If the skip is overloaded it is illegal for us to take the skip away.
