Did you know that in a 2018 survey Southampton, Hampshire was in the bottom 10% of councils for recycling? In response the council changed the bin collections, alternating to encourage recycling. They also introduced 12 new plastic recycling banks.
Needless to say, this also prompted a tightening on waste dropped off at the local recycling centres, even if the proper facilities to dispose of waste and recycle are not fully in place. It’s the reason many locals are paying for skip hire in Southampton.
The good news is that Impala, your local skip hire company, has the answer. Whether you need a large or small skip, or simply want to find out the options available, Impala in Hampshire is waiting to assist you.
Our Wast Skip Bin Services
We’re a national firm that can provide you with same-day service when needed. You’ll deal exclusively with our local office where you’ll find expert advice and local knowledge.
For example, did you realize that there is a height barrier of 1.75m at the Southampton recycling centre? It’s to prevent misuse by trade vehicles.
That may make sense but the fact that you need a permit if you even want to bring a trailer is not likely to encourage people to dispose of their waste in the best possible way.
At the end of the day, no matter how much you may want to save the planet, you have a busy life. Taking the time to go back and forth in your own vehicle is frustrating. Fortunately, when you use local, cheap, skip hire this eliminates most of the issues.
Why Use Skip Hire
Contact Impala today and get the latest skip price list, you’ll be surprised at how affordable they are. It makes sense to have the complete price before agreeing the size you need and having it delivered to your door.
Don’t forget, if you’re planning to put a skip on the public highway you’ll need a permit first. This takes several days to get and must be obtained before we can deliver. We can help you with this process and ensure that, once sited, you have adequate lighting and signage to make sure other road users are aware of its presence.
You should also note that it’s fine to hire a mini skip and put it on the road providing you have a permit, which will also advise you of the maximum size of skip you can safely put on the public highway. It’s important to pay attention to this as you don’t want to be fined.

Things To Consider When Renting A Skip And Hiring A Company
Getting cheap skip hire is important but, you also want the best possible product for your needs. That means ensuring you hire a mini skip for a small project and an 8-yard skip for a large project. Choosing the right one will save you money, too small and you’ll need a second, too large and you’re simply wasting money.
Size – Small Skip or Large?
Most people opt for the smallest option, often called the 4-yard skip which can handle 20 bags of rubbish. While this is enough for some projects you really need to consider what you’re doing. For example, renovating a bathroom or kitchen is going to require a medium-sized, (6-yard skip), or even the larger 8-yard skip.
You need to verify the price. Impala offer great prices on their entire range, compare these to others and you’ll see the result is favorable.
You should consider where you want to put it. If it’s on a public highway you’re going to need a permit first. We can help you to arrange this.
Some skip hire companies add charges to deliver and collect, as well as the rental cost; this can make a significant difference to the total price. With Impala you’ll know the whole price from the start, there are no surprises.
