Materials and items that you’re allowed to dispose of in a skip include metal, wood, tiles and ceramics, empty tins, cardboard, bricks and non-electrical fixtures and fittings.

Hazardous items and materials are not allowed to be disposed of in a skip. Things like asbestos, chemicals, paint, and batteries are strictly off-limits and should be disposed of according to safety guidelines and environmental regulations. It's important to check with the local council and the skip hire company for specific guidelines in your area. Or for any questions about skip hire Colchester clients can contact our team today.
A skip can be placed on your private property without permission as long as it does not pose a safety hazard or obstruct the public. If you need to put a skip on a public road, however, you’ll first need to ask for a permit. Contact your local council and they will assess the location before issuing you a permit. Your skip supplier should be able to handle the permit and safety arrangements for you. For any questions on skip hire Colchester customers can get in touch with us.
A skip should only be filled up to the level of its sides to ensure that waste materials do not go above the rim or hang over the sides. The specific load limit may vary depending on the skip size and the policies of the skip provider. To avoid any issues, always consult with your chosen skip rental company for their recommendations on the maximum fill height for safe and efficient waste disposal. For tailored advice on skip hire Colchester clients can get in touch with our team today.
If the skip that you want to hire needs to be positioned on a public road, then you’ll need to apply for a permit from Essex County Council. This is so that they can check that the location of the skip will not create a safety or environmental hazard. They will undertake an assessment, guide you on where the skip can be safely positioned and let you know about any notification requirements.
The price for hiring a small skip will depend on your location, the skip hire provider and the length of time you need it for. In the UK, the average cost of hiring a small skip ranges from £60 to £120 for a one-week hire.

Colchester City Council provides residents with a bulky waste collection service for unwanted household items that they no longer need or want. This includes white goods such as dishwashers, cookers, washing machines, tumble driers, spin driers and anything with a plug to beds, sofas or wardrobes, domestic garden furniture and toys. You can book a collection via their website and pay from £17 per item for up to 12 items.
Donating large and unused items that you no longer need or want to charity is a kind and sustainable method of waste disposal and much more cost-effective than skip hire! Opting to donate to a local charity is a great way to give back to the local community too. Many charities in Colchester including Emmaus and St Helena Hospice offer free collections too so try giving them a call.
Composting offers a sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to skip hire and is a simple but impactful way to contribute to a greener and more sustainable future while managing waste efficiently. Compost can enrich the soil, promoting healthier plant growth and reducing the need for chemical fertilisers. Diverting kitchen scraps and garden trimmings from landfills reduces the environmental impact too by decreasing greenhouse gas emissions associated with landfilling.
