Southwark ( SUDH-ərk) is a district of Central London situated on the south bank of the River Thames, forming the north-western part of the wider modern London Borough of Southwark. The district, which is the oldest part of South London, developed due to its position at the southern end of the early versions of London Bridge, the only crossing point for many miles.
If you’re considering 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 fluctuate in price from council to council.
They generally take 3-5 working days to receive 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 reissued 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 varies 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 work 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 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.
