How long can i keep a skip for?

Our skips can be hired up to 10 days, then it is an additional £20 + vat which enables a further 28 days hire. Speak to our team who can assist with your order. 

If a skip is to be located  on a public highway / Road  a skip licence or sometimes called a skip permit is required. Wasteology can apply to the appropriate  local authority before the delivery takes place. 

Please note that Skip Permits can take up to 10 working days.

We can organise the permit for you. Just contact us and let us know the location of your skip and we can do all the rest of the hard work for you. 

Wasteology will try  their best to delivery when you want your skip. Mostly we tell you morning or afternoon. Sometimes we  can deliver on the same day if that is what you require. JUst have a chat with our friendly team who will do their best to help you. 

Access is important for our lorry to delivery the skip where it is required. That is safe.

 

 

Important Safety and Legal Information

It is of upmost importance that you do not forget that you are legally responsible for all the contents inside
the skip. This means that you must ensure that any and all of the waste disposed of using the skip is suitable for disposal in general waste and meets our terms and conditions.

This means that items of waste such as plasterboard gypsum cannot be disposed of through our skip hire waste disposal services. With regards to plasterboard, we can provide specialised collection services for plasterboard gypsum disposal. Alternatively you could choose a Dumpy Bag service which is a disposal container which is 1 cubic meter in size and can hold up to 200kg and is recommended for items of waste which are required to be collected separately for environmental legislation purposes, such as plasterboard (Gypsum based construction waste WC 17 08 02).

It is also very important that you do not dispose of waste irresponsibly. This includes overloading the skip. An overloaded skip is a hazard; the lorry may struggle to lift the skip and the overfilled waste could be a danger to other people as the skip is being lifted or transported. So, please make sure that the contents of a skip never exceed the height of the skip’s sides.

Finally, please remember that you must never set fire to waste in a skip.
