Also 30 and 40 Cubic Yard containers for bulky wastes excluding soils plus enclosed and compactor containers.

Open and Enclosed Rear End Loader ( R.E.L. Skips )

The rear end loader compaction vehicle is the newest addition to our fleet and gives us, the ability to service far more customers in a day than a normal skip vehicle. This vehicle can empty several containers at the customers premises, compact the waste and leave the emptied containers on site.
We have 8 and 12 Cubic Yard enclosed REL skips which are all emptied at the customers premises by our REL vehicle.

Yes, and we do this for you. The council will charge a small fee which is added to the price we charge you. They issue a street permit which is valid for 7 days.

You can call us for advice or refer to our size guide below.

We will leave your skip in the most convenient location which might be the driveway or the road. They can also be at business, office and factory locations.
Yes we do as we are a licensed and Registered waste recycling company.
If your council refuses a street permit – which is rare – we can come along with a skip and our driver will wait while you load it up.
The normal Skip Hire period is 6 days.
You must not load the skip to a level higher than the top.
Asbestos, batteries, tyres, fridges, freezers, any electrical goods, i.e. televisions, stereos or any hazardous or liquid wastes are not allowed to be loaded onto the skip

Mini Builders Large (not for heavy waste i.e. soil, stones or brick) Euro Bins Open & Closed Rear End Loader ( R.E.L Skips )

Be realistic about what needs to be thrown out as very often two small skips will be more expensive than one bigger one. If you are moving why pay for items you don’t use or need to moved
