Frequently Asked Questions

Our staff are always available to answer your questions and help you understand which of our skips for hire would be ideal for your project and the amount of waste that you’re disposing of.

Skip hire can be for any period up to 7 days. In cases where you have filled your skip before the allotted time, please call us to arrange an early uplift. If you require a longer period of skip hire, then please call our team for further information.

If you’re confused about the various permits and documentation required by the council there’s no need to worry. If you need your skip placed on the road, footpath, or verge rather than on your property, then we can apply for the special permit required from your local council. Please note that different councils take different time periods to obtain a permit so be sure to call us for further information.

In early 2023 the government brought in new legislation that means any upholstered furniture that may contain Persistent Organic Pollutants has to be incinerated meaning we can no longer accept this waste stream in our skips.

Below is a list of items that fall under the POPs category:

  • Sofas
  • Sofa beds
  • Armchairs
  • Kitchen and dining room chairs
  • Stools and foot stools
  • Home office chairs
  • Futons
  • Beanbags, floor and sofa cushions

If you require any further information on the disposal of POPs please give us a call and we will help you find a solution.

No one needs to be on site when the skip is delivered, however, we do ask if the drop off site is going to be unattended please can you leave clear instructions for us so our driver knows exactly where to place the skip.

Skips can be placed either on your property for example a drive way or garden, we would ask you to ensure that there is enough access for our vehicles and that the location is suitable for the skip to be placed. For example, if the skip is being filled with heavy material such as inert waste then a block paved drive or garden might not be the best location as there might be unavoidable damage upon collection of the skip due to the weight.

If the skip is going off the property we can place it on the grass verge or the highway but we will need to get permission through the means of a permit from you local council (for further information please see the council questions above).

Skip hire you can trust

Very good customer service of all the skip on Friday and it came on Monday and we finish packed it up on Monday evening evening and we tell them to come for it Tuesday and they did and they did a brilliant job. I would recommend them to anybody who hire and skip. Thank you.

We have used this team several times from various properties around Doncaster. They have invariably been polite and efficient. The prices seem very competitive all the time. i do not readily recommend any operators but they have been faultless to date.
