A skip cannot be placed on a public road without a permit. Unlicensed skips can be removed without warning and come with a fine of up to £1000.

We Love London

Who can resist London, a city steeped in history, innovation and excitement? From the majestic Tower of London, dating back nearly a thousand years, that holds the Crown Jewels and echoes with stories of monarchs and intrigue, to The West End's theatres, including the iconic Shakespeare's Globe, that make London a global capital of theatre. There's nothing we love more than strolling around the city's green spaces like Hyde Park for a peaceful respite amongst the urban hustle. And afternoons exploring London's world-class museums, such as the British Museum and Tate Modern, discovering treasures from across the ages never gets boring. With its charming neighbourhoods, diverse culinary scene, and vibrant multicultural vibe, London's standalone blend of tradition and modernity makes it a one-in-a-million city.

Useful Information

When it comes to waste disposal and skip hire in London, whether you’re going to undertake a renovation or construction project, having a good understanding of the decisions you’ll need to make is always useful to ensure a seamless experience. And, if you don't want to hire a skip London has lots of other alternatives to consider.

Skip Size and Volume

Choosing the appropriate skip for your needs is crucial.  To avoid overfilling and being exposed to additional charges, you can choose the right size according to the waste volume and types from:

  • Mini Skip Hire (2-3 cubic yards): Mini skips are an excellent choice for household tasks like spring cleaning and garden cleanups. Because they are small it means that can fit on most driveways.

  • Midi Skip (4-6 cubic yards): Midi skips are a popular choice for slightly bigger home and garden projects because they offer more volume without taking up too much space.

  • Builder's Skip (8-10 cubic yards): Builders' skips are used for lots of different types of larger projects. Suitable for construction and demolition waste or disposing of bulky household items.

  • Large Skip Hire London (12-16 cubic yards): Designed for substantial waste disposal requirements, 12-16 cubic yard skips are suited to large-scale construction projects or significant clearouts.

Skip Hire Process

To hire a skip London customers are always advised to get a good understanding of the process first.  If you speak to a professional skip hire company you can discuss your needs and choose the right skip size for your project. They'll schedule delivery and collection dates and, if needed, they should be able to help you to request a permit from the local council if it’s required. When it’s delivered, the skip company will securely place the skip at the designated spot. When it comes to loading waste, only fill it up to the marked "fill level" to make sure that it can be collected and transported to a waste disposal unit safely once you’re done.

Skip Hire Substitutes

“Man and Van”

Hiring a skip in London is a common way to dispose of waste, but there are viable alternatives to consider, each with its unique benefits. "Man and Van" services come to your location, load your waste for you and transport it for disposal. Convenient for smaller loads, the cost often includes labour. But be aware of unscrupulous operators who fly-tip the waste that they collect. You can verify that they operate legally by checking that they have a waste carrier license.

Donating To Charity

Another great alternative to hiring a skip is donating your usable items to charity and making a positive impact! You can also take advantage of the free collection service offered by lots of local London charities that will come and pick up large, fit-for-purpose items that can be reused. You can start by contacting any of these national charities to find out your nearest collection service and contribute to a good cause with your donation:

Local Council Bulky Waste Collection

Most local London councils offer a Bulky Waste Collection service to help residents dispose of large items. Each council will have its own rules on how many items can be collected each time, and the appropriate fee. Charges tend to be kept to a minimum so it can be an inexpensive way to dispose of things like white goods and large electrical items, lawnmowers, carpets, bed frames, mattresses, furniture, televisions and other small electrical items.
