Is Your Home DIY Project In Need For A skip for hire ?

Skips are often seen on construction sites, but they are available for household and business waste, enabling you to eliminate more waste without having to run back and forth to your local recycling and waste centre.

Skips were introduced to the United Kingdom in the 1960’s and the idea was German. When they were first introduced there was only one size and they only came in bright yellow. So much has changed since then and skip hire these days gives you access to a selection of sizes and companies, ensuring you find the one that matches your requirements and budget moving forward.

One of the biggest problems in the United Kingdom is fly tipping, which is illegal and irresponsible. In fact more than sixty per cent of fly tipping is household waste, which is why considering skip hire can help you eliminate all your waste in a controlled, effective and responsible way.

Further, it’s always important to ensure the company you choose will help you with the relevant permits that you may need while using the skip. If you don’t have space on your private land, then the skip will need to be placed on the street. This means it has to be placed strategically to ensure it doesn’t obstruct pedestrians and traffic. When placing the skip on the road, you will also need a permit, which most reputable and reliable skip hire companies will arrange on your behalf.


Once the skip is full, phone the company immediately to arrange collection, don’t leave it out on the street overflowing with waste for too long. Most companies will accommodate you filling your skip early and can send out a lorry and team to collect the skip in the shortest space of time.
