How quickly can I get a skip?
If we can we will always try to get your skip out the same day but in busier periods it may be the next day, you will be advised at the time of booking. Please note if a skip license is required this may take longer depending on the council.

Where can my skip be placed?
Skips can be placed on private property i.e. your driveway or on private land. If the most convenient position is on the road, you will need a skip license for this. Any skip that is placed on the road must have prior permission from the council or you could be fined, skips must also be lit during hours of darkness.
