Skips cannot be placed on the public highway without a permit. This includes roads, footpaths and grass verges maintained by the highway department. We can arrange permits for you, please contact us for more information on prices. Please note that permits can take up to 7 working days to process

If a skip is to be placed on the public highway then you must ensure that it is suitably lit and provided with the relevant law of the council. We can provide lights and cones where required please contact us for further details.

You must ensure that there is sufficient room for the lorry to deliver and collect the skip. Remember, you are responsible for ensuring suitable access. Failure to provide this could result in extra charges such as wasted journeys and waiting time on site.

Skips must be level loaded to enable them to be transported safely, any skips found over loaded will incur a further charge resulting in the appropriate price of the skip. No fridges, freezers, TV/computers screens, paint tins, electrical or hazardous materials. Any items found on collection will be charged accordantly.

Notification of changes of disposal of PLASTERBOARD.
As of the 1st April 2009 regulations have been changed by the environment
agency banning the land filling of Gypsum waste including plasterboard.
This clearly removes the 10% guidelines value previously used. After the
1st April 2009 skips containing plasterboard will be refused. If
plasterboard is found on tipping, the skip will be re-filled and returned,
involving extra charges. Therefore plasterboard will have to be segregated
separately into specific skips and charged by the weight.

If you have any hazardous waste, plasterboard or electrical equipment that you need to
dispose of please call us on 01763 252 080 for advice and information on how
we can dispose of this for you.

Customers ordering skips on privately owned property do so at their own risk. Please be aware that skip lorries can weigh up to 16 tonnes and can subsequently damage some surfaces. We cannot accept responsibility for any damage caused by our vehicles whilst delivering and collecting from your sites. If you would like any help or information on ground protections then please do not hesitate to contact us.

Skips can be kept on site for a maximum of 14 days unless otherwise agreed at the time of placing your order. Any skips over the 14 days hire period will incur a weekly rental prices. For skip exchanges please allow 24 hours notice and 48 hours for collections, please be aware during busy periods the timescale is prolonged.
