What can you put inside a skip?

Now you must also be aware of what can a skip help you with exactly and what they cannot.

Before employing a skip you must study a little about it.

There is a reason behind why some items are not allowed to be taken away by skip, with the goal of having everything disposed of in an efficient manner which is good for people as well as for the environment. To give you a practical insight, you must be aware that plasterboards can emit dangerous gases while being decomposed in mixed waste and hence they are to be treated separately.

Disposing of waste comes with a responsibility and hence the skip you hire ensures that everything is going fine. It is important to assess the waste that you are planning to dispose of for which skip would go around with you to check your heap of waste and evaluate it. If there are certain things that need special care or cannot be disposed of in the usual manner they would help you consider it too.

Now is the time to consider the kind of skip as well as the size of it that you would be requiring. You must carefully consider the waste and the skip containers options available before contracting with one. If the skip container is smaller than your requirements, you would have to spend additional money on going for another round, on the other hand, if the container size is too big for your waste then again you would be incurring costs which weren’t required.

If you would contact a good skip hire agency then they would be able to guide you with the kinds of containers you would want and also the services that would be required. The equipment also varies as per the needs of the waste which is to be disposed of. The equipment required for carrying out garden waste disposal would be different from construction activities waste disposal. To make you choose easily, the skip hire services have been broken down into the following categories to aid you.

Small or Large Skip? - Sizes Gude

One of the hardest things can be ordering the right size. It’s easy to ring up for a mini or small skip. But, if this isn’t big enough for your needs it’s a false economy, hiring a second one to complete the job is more expensive than hiring a slightly larger skip in the first place.

It can help to be aware of the different sizes on offer, this will help to ensure you really do get a cost effective solution instead of paying the hire charge twice.

What’re Prices in Wolverhampton?

There are various factors that are detrimental in deciding the cost of the skips that you are hiring such as the location, the duration for which you need a skip as well as the hire permits which are needed at certain locations. Let us study these factors in detail.

Pricing by Size

The major factor in pricing the skip is its size which counts for 90% of the total cost. The larger would be the size of your container, the more it would demand you to pay. You must study your needs well before you go on to contract for one.

The responsibility of removing the containers would be of the skip hire. You must also consider well what things you are including and what you are not as the main purpose of both the skip hire and the waste removal industry is to get the waste recycled. So deciding well can save money as almost 80% of the waste would be recycled.

Costs of Council Permits

In some cases, you’ll need a permit to have a skip at your home. The general rule is that this is only necessary if the skip is going to be placed on a public highway. Permits are generally valid for either 1 to 2 weeks, prolonging them is possible but you’ll have to pay an extra fee.

We can help you establish the best spot to place your skip, keep it there for the shortest time possible, and get the permit you need. It does take 4-5 days to get a permit and you’ll need it before the skip is delivered.

You may also need to have lights around a skip on the public highway to ensure people don’t crash into it.

The good news is that although it sounds confusing and complicated, we can help you through the process or even do it for you, just call us today and get the skip you need.

Check the council website and apply for a permit.


Another factor that plays a key role in deciding the cost of skip hire is the time period for which you would need it. Especially if you are using council property and need extensions, your cost would be majorly affected. You must consider all these factors before you apply for skip hire.

Hidden Charges

If you are contracting with a good skip hire firm, you wouldn’t have to worry about any of it. However, there might be sudden charges coming up due to your mistake of putting in things that are not supposed to be put in skips. In addition to this, make it a point that you are checking the Value Added Tax appropriately before entering into a contract.


This would also be a factor while deciding what you would have to pay. The cost of the permit, as well as other services you are availing, might be different in different locations.

Can You Make This Service Cheaper?

Avoid Council Permits

After having gone through what these services can cost you, you might be scared about the amount that you would need. Hence, to put your worries to rest we would now tell you ways in which you can reduce the costs of skip hire.

Be careful about the items

You must be very careful while putting things in the skip. The environmental aspect plays a great role in these services and the last thing the company would want is you to mix some undesirable items [5]. You can be fined by the company and might have to pay huge sums, so make sure that you are being extremely careful in this regard.

Stay way from overloading

There would very often be a maximum filling line present in the container that you would take. Make sure that you are not overloading the skip as well as that you are not exceeding the weight limit since it can make the whole process dangerous. If you enter into any of these activities, you would have to end up splitting the waste into two containers adding to both the cost and the time.


Try Splitting the Cost

You would be able to cut down the cost of the whole project if you choose to involve some of your neighbours in it. This would be in the best interest of both of you. You can also find people around you who are looking for similar services on Next-door.

Book in Advance.

If you would decide to book in skip hire at the last moment it will obviously come with additional costs. Try to look for the services that you want timely so as to also claim the early bird discount offers. With that, also keep in mind the busiest months of the company.

Things that you must avoid doing?

  • Never overload the skip as it might be dangerous both for the machinery which will be used o carry it as well as for people who would come in contact with the protruding items.

  • You must study the items which are not allowed carefully and restrict putting them. The skip hire is not licensed for disposing of everything which you must respect.

  • Never keep the skip on any public place without having a permit which allows you to do so.

  • Do not place the skip on soft or sensitive places that can be damaged by it.

  • Make sure that you sure not causing anybody inconvenience in ways such as blocking the traffic.

What Paperwork Can I Expect?

When the skip gets delivered to you, you would receive a delivery ticket. Likewise, when the skip hire comes to take along the skip you would be given a waste transfer note. These papers would provide you with all the information you need including the company’s details, the date as well as the details of the waste removal.

How long can you hire a skip for?

Generally, user projects demand skips for a span of seven to ten days to fulfill their functions. However, they can also be hired for a lesser as well as longer duration which entirely depends on the availability. Keeping this in mind, you must talk to the company well in advance to look for availability and book one for yourself.

Where Does My Waste End Up?

Having hired a skip you must also be aware of the final destination of your waste. The main purpose of skip is to take care of the waste in such a manner that is best for the environment and the people which is also the way in which they are trained. Recycling and repurposing — avoiding taking waste to a landfill —this is the priority of the skip hire. The waste once collected is isolated and separated. The different processes of compaction, shredding, and screening are followed. Finally, the waste which is collected from your location is delivered at a recycling site, a landfill, or an energy source location where it is decomposed in a safe as well as a legal way.
