Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a skip permit?

If your skip can fit adequately on your private property, then you will not need a skip permit. However, if your skip will be placed on a public road, then you will need to get a permit from the highways authority.

How long does a permit last for?

14 days.

What is wait and load skip hire, and is it right for me?

Wait and load refers to a complete same-day service, which allows you to fill a skip in 30 minutes, before being removed. This is a useful option if you have a tight schedule.

What happens to my rubbish?

We recycle or reuse around 95% of the waste.

Can you remove asbestos?

Yes, we also provide a professional asbestos removal service.
