When the skip is full, a simple call to the office notifying us of collection is all that is required. Removal can take a few days. If you require urgent removal, please notify us we will happily schedule the collection for an allotted date.
How do I pay for the skip?
We can take payment over the phone using a credit or debit card which incurs no extra cost. This is ideal if you do not plan to be in at the time of delivery. A cash payment can be made to the driver on the day, although due to safety reasons, our drivers do not carry a cash float, so the correct money is appreciated.

Cheques are no longer accepted.
What am I allowed to put in the skip?
We can take most types of waste except:
- Fridge/ Freezers
- Coshh (paint, oils, diesel and petrol)
- Special or hazardous waste
Asbestos (Skips for Asbestos waste can be hired separately through the office with site registration and consignment notes arranged)
What if I need to put the skip on the road?
When a skip is placed on the public highway, permission is needed from the local authority. The cost, duration and conditions are different depending on the authority. We are happy to organise the licence but bear in mind the following information:
- Bexley Council: 2 days notice required for application, 14 day duration
- Bromley Council: 3 days notice required for application, 14 day duration
- Greenwich Council: 3 days notice required for application, 30 day duration
- Kent County Council: 3 days notice required for application, 7 day duration
- Medway Council: 3-5 days notice required for application, 14 day duration
What size skip should I hire?
We are often asked this question as it is hard to visualise the size of a skip in relation to the amount of waste you have. Our most popular size is the 6 yard skip (4.6 cubic metres). It is approximately the size of an average car. You can check out our full skip range here.
How much notice do I need to give for a skip delivery?
We can normally arrange same day delivery as long as the skip does not require permission for the public highway. However, if you like to be organised, we can take orders for deliveries up to 3 months in advance.
