Important Safety and Legal Information

It is of upmost importance that you do not forget that you are legally responsible for all the contents inside
the skip. This means that you must ensure that any and all of the waste disposed of using the skip is suitable for disposal in general waste and meets our terms and conditions.

This means that items of waste such as plasterboard gypsum cannot be disposed of through our skip hire waste disposal services. With regards to plasterboard, we can provide specialised collection services for plasterboard gypsum disposal. Alternatively you could choose a Jumbo Bag service which is a disposal container which is 1 cubic meter in size and can hold up to 200kg and is recommended for items of waste which are required to be collected separately for environmental legislation purposes, such as plasterboard (Gypsum based construction waste EWC 17 08 02).

In addition to providing convenient and reasonably priced waste solutions, we can also help arrange skip permits for our clients who require them. You need a skip permit if you would like to place the skip on a public highway, so if your skip hire requires a permit, just let our team know and we’ll a permit when you place your order. These permits are usually available in 7 working days, however sometimes they can be available sooner. Fees vary depending on area and placement.

It is also very important that you do not dispose of waste irresponsibly. This includes overloading the skip. An overloaded skip is a hazard; the lorry may struggle to lift the skip and the overfilled waste could be a danger to other people as the skip is being lifted or transported. So, please make sure that the contents of a skip never exceed the height of the skip’s sides.

Finally, please remember that you must never set fire to waste in a skip.
