Q. I want the skip to go on my drive. How much space do i need?
A. The skips that we provide must be able to go on your property. We need to allow at least a 10ft (3.04m) entrance, with a driveway long enough to accommodate a 12ft (3.66m) in length skip, making sure the space is free from overhanging cables or trees etc. Most driveways will be a suitable size, but you should consider the quality of the drive surface as the lorries that deliver and collect the skips are very heavy!
Q. Is there anything i cannot put into a skip?
A. You cannot put hazardous or harmful items into a skip. These include but are not limited to TVs, computer monitors, asbestos, tyres, fluorescent tubes, fridges, paint and paint tins (unless empty), plasterboard, batteries, medical waste, gas cylinders, liquids, solvents, oil, petrol, diesel and explosives
Q. How much can i put into the skip?
A. At maximum capacity the contents of the skip must be loaded no higher than level with the top of the skip so that it can be safely transported. If your waste does not reach maximum capacity that’s fine too. You do not have to fill your skip.
Q. How long can we keep the skip?
A. We have a maximum time limit of two weeks, but we will collect the skip from you as soon as you are finished with it, even if it’s only after a day or a week. So as soon as you have finished with the skip then please phone us the day before you want it to be picked up.
Under no circumstances must there be any fires inside the skip. All damage to a skip will be charged for. We do not take responsibility for damage what so ever caused to driveways.
