Useful information when hiring a skip

You may questioning what size skip you need to hire. Despite the UK going metric many years ago the skip hire business still uses the cubic yard to measure volume. A cubic yard is roughly the size of two washing machines or one upright fridge freezer.

See the skip illustration below as a guide.

Skip permits

If you're putting a skip on the road you'll need a skip hire permit. We will arrange your permit FREE of charge.

What happens the waste I put in a skip?

It largely depends on the type of waste in your skip. We do try to recycle as much as possible to avoid waste going to landfill.
