Upon ordering a skip, you agree to the terms and conditions. This is a requirement of hire. See our Terms and Conditions.
You are responsible for controlling all waste that is placed within the skip until the skip is collected. Due to Environmental regulations, certain waste types are required to be kept segregated to avoid contamination with other waste (e.g. ceramics and plasterboard) . We will provide tonne sacks within the skips where needed or requested to help you with segregation, so that as much of your waste as possible can be recycled. This will help keep your waste disposal costs to a minimum, whilst also helping the environment.
PLEASE NOTE: Skips are not collected on the day you call us to off-hire them. They go on a clears list and are collected in order of which has been called in first. BE AWARE It may take several days to collect a skip when we are busy. However we always endeavour to collect skips in as quickly as we are able.
Under no circumstances can you put (or allow others to put) hazardous waste into the skip.
THE FOLLOWING WASTE IS NOT ALLOWED IN ANY SKIP due to Health & Safety and Environment Agency regulations:-
Any unauthorised waste listed above which is found in the skip once it has been collected will be returned to your address and you will be charged the additional costs of handling the waste along with the added transportation costs of returning the items. In the event that we are unable to return these items, you will be charged the full costs of handling, treatment and transportation necessary to achieve final disposal within current legislation.
SKIPS MUST BE LEVEL-FILLED ONLY (level with the top of the sides of the skip). You will be charged for any overfill in addition to the skip hire cost.
THE HIRE PERIOD IS 7 DAYS. You must call us to off hire the skip within that period to avoid additional hire charges. If you fail to do so, you will be charged a daily rate of £10.00 + VAT, from the end of the hire period, to the date you call us to off-hire the skip.
If you need a skip for a longer period, we are flexible, so please call us.
MATTRESSES MUST BE PLACED ON TOP OF THE SKIP ONCE IT IS LEVEL FILLED. You will be charged a processing fee in addition to the cost of skip hire to prevent them going into landfill. Please check with the Office for current prices.
ROOFING FELT. If you have roofing felt to dispose of, you must discuss this with us when ordering your skip. If you have a large amount to dispose of, you will be charged an additional fee for its disposal in addition to the cost of skip hire, depending on weight.
PLASTERBOARD (Plain backed). If you have plasterboard to dispose of you must discuss this with us when ordering your skip. Due to environmental regulations plasterboard is not allowed in landfill and must be kept segregated from all other waste to avoid contamination and to enable it to be processed for recycling. You will be charged a plasterboard processing fee for its disposal in addition to the cost of skip hire. Please check with the office for current rates. We will provide tonne sacks within the skip for this purpose. If you have a large amount of plasterboard to dispose of, a separate skip may be required. Please discuss this with us when hiring your skip. Note You will be charged an additional disposal fee on top of the plasterboard processing fee if plasterboard is not segregated, found to be contaminated, or backed with foil or polystyrene.
CERAMICS (e.g tiles, sinks/toilets). If you have ceramics to dispose of you must discuss this with us when hiring your skip. Ceramics must also be kept segregated to avoid contamination from other waste in order to enable recycling. Tonne sacks will again be provided within the skip for this purpose. Note You will be charged an additional disposal fee if ceramics are not segregated or found to be contaminated.
