Same/Next Day Skip Hire

Domestic & Commercial Waste

95% Waste Recycled & Reused

We’ll Sort The Road Permit!


It’s easy to order your chosen skip by speaking to our friendly team, and we provide efficient same or next day delivery using our own fleet of vans. If you’re unsure about anything, such as which skip you’ll need for your current job, don’t forget that our team have over 35 years of experience when it comes to Skip Hire Cambridge. We will be happy to discuss your requirements and point you in the right direction.

When your work is complete, one of our friendly drivers will come back to your property to pick the skip up again. We’ll then take your waste to a licensed recycling plant and ensure that as much of it as possible is responsibly recycled. Take a look at our skip size categories below:

Mini Skip Hire

Perfect for domestic use; if you’re renovating a room or just having a clear out. We offer mini skips that are 2 yards, 3 yards or 4 yards.

These sizes will be suitable for most commercial jobs or larger-scale projects. The sizes we offer include 6 yards and 8 yards.

Large Skip Hire

A commercial or builders skip for projects which generate a lot of rubbish! Sizes available are 10 yards, 12 yards, 16 yards and 23 yards.

How do I hire a skip?

It couldn’t be any easier! Call us on 01353649770 or fill out our online form, letting us know your general location in Cambridge and your skip size. Don’t worry if you’re not sure of the size – we can help you with that. After discussing any road permits or special requirements, we’ll offer you a competitive quote.

If you’re happy (and we are sure you will be), we’ll send over your skip within the same day, next day or on your chosen date. Once your skip is filled, we’ll come to collect it and dispose of the waste ethically, responsibly and efficiently. Make sure to read our prohibited waste guide to learn what you can’t put in our skips.


If you don’t need a skip for long or are on a tight schedule, we also offer a wait and load skip service in and around Cambridge.

Our friendly driver will drop the skip off with you and wait for 30 minutes for you to fill it, before promptly taking the skip away again, providing a competitively priced, quick and convenient waste removal service. As usual, we will recycle and reuse 95% of waste!


  • Over 35 years of experience dealing with rubbish removal
  • Around 95% of waste recycled
  • Extremely flexible hire periods
  • Registered waste carriers
  • We also offer safe asbestos collection


If you have adequate space on your property, you will not need a permit from your local council to hire a skip in Cambridge. However, if your skip will be placed on a public road, you will need a permit from the highways authority. Permission will be granted after consideration of the skip’s dimensions, safety, disposal of contents, guarding and skip removal. Essentially, the council need to know the skip will be safe and handled legally by registered waste carriers. Skips cannot be placed on yellow lines and will need to be marked with cones or clear guarding.

If you require a skip permit, our friendly team can sort this for you and provide road markings (cones). It can take up to 5 working days for your request to be granted, so make sure to prepare in advance and call us on 01353 649770 or contact us online. Skip permits last for 14 days, so if you plan to hire your skip for longer, you’ll need to renew your permit. Don’t worry though, we’ll be there to help you from start to finish.
