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 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 rush 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 junk 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 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 suitable to 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.
