Lowestoft () is an English North Sea coast town and civil parish in the county of Suffolk. On the edge of The Broads, it is the most easterly UK settlement, 110 miles (177 km) north-east of London, 38 miles (61 km) north-east of Ipswich and 22 miles (35 km) south-east of Norwich. As the main town in the district of East Suffolk, it had an estimated 73,775 inhabitants in 2018. A port town, it developed out of the fishing industry and as a seaside resort with wide, sandy beaches. As its fisheries declined, oil and gas exploitation in the southern North Sea in the 1960s added to its development, as it did in nearby Great Yarmouth. These roles have declined, but Lowestoft is developing as a regional centre of the renewable energy industry.
If you’re planning on having your skip delivered onto the road or into a parking bay. You will require a permit from your local council. These are an additional charge to your skip hire but vary in price from council to council.
They normally take 3-5 working days to obtain from the council although in some cases it can take a lot longer. In terms of how long you have one for, it can be from 1 day up to a month and can be renewed depending on how long you need them.
They’re very flexible and as long as you don’t need the skip in a hurry is a great way to get your skip delivered wherever you want it!
The price to hire a skip changes depending on the type of waste going into the skip and the size of the skip you require. As a rule of thumb, you should expect to pay from £100 up to around £350 for a residential skip in most cases.
Depending on the size of the project your undertaking will determine the size of the skip you require. A general rule of thumb is to divide the number of bin bags of rubbish you’ll generate by ten. For example, if you think you’ll generate 60 bin bags of waste you will require a 6-yard skip.
Items which are safe to place in a skip are household items such as wood, tiles, plaster, furniture, paper, cardboard, garden waste and fabrics. You can also place heavy materials such as bricks, rubble, concrete, stones, metal, pottery and clays.
