Top tips for successful skip hire - check the size you need carefully

  • Do not put any of the following in your skip: fridges or freezers, televisions, fluorescent tubes, light bulbs, tyres, asbestos, clinical/medical waste, liquids including oil, paint and solvents, food waste, gas bottles and any hazardous, flammable or toxic material.
  • Do not overfill your skip.
  • Do not light fires in the skip.

Top tips for skip hire:

  • Make sure you hire a big enough skip – one large skip is more cost effective than two smaller ones.
  • If you plan to put the skip on the road or verge outside your house, you’ll need a permit from your council. Give us details at the time of hiring and we can arrange the skip permit for you or assist you (as different conditions apply in different council areas).
  • Do use Pinbins. Unlike many skip hire companies, we have our own recycling facility on site. We ain to reclaim up to 100% of the waste and, in the process, avoid the use of landfill.
