London is the capital and largest city of England and the United Kingdom. The city stands on the River Thames in the south-east of England, at the head of its 50-mile (80 km) estuary leading to the North Sea. London has been a major settlement for two millennia. Londinium was founded by the Romans. The City of London, London’s ancient core and financial centre − an area of just 1.12 square miles (2.9 km2) and colloquially known as the Square Mile − retains boundaries that closely follow its medieval limits.[note 1] The adjacent City of Westminster has for centuries been the location of much of the national government. Thirty-one additional boroughs north and south of the river also comprise modern London. London is governed by the mayor of London and the London Assembly.[note 2]
If you’re thinking about having your skip dropped onto the road or into a parking bay. You will need a permit from your local council. These are an additional charge to your skip hire but vary in price from council to council.
They generally 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 excellent 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 about £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 need. 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 allowed 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.
