Your skip can be used for the removal of non-hazardous waste. This includes building debris, household items and green waste. In fact, it’s easier to say what you can’t put in a skip:

  • Asbestos
  • Batteries
  • Clinical or medical waste, including syringes
  • Electrical appliances & equipment
  • Fluorescent tubes
  • Fridges, freezers and air conditioning units
  • Gas canisters and gas bottles
  • Hazardous & toxic materials
  • Liquids
  • Oil, petrol, diesel
  • Paint & Cans of paint
  • Plasterboard
  • Tyres
  • TVs & computer screens

You can get two main types of skips; covered and open. Open skips are frequently used. Covered skips however can be used to protect the content from adverse weather. Covered skips are usually available at extra cost.

Dereham skip hire prices vary depending on the size of the skip you need. Generally, our skip hire will cost between £140 – £300 including VAT.

The waste you put in your skip will be processed at a fully authorised treatment facility which is regulated by UK and EU waste disposal regulations.

It’s illegal to overfill your skip. The waste in your skip cannot be loaded past the top of the sides. Overfilled skips will not be collected. To be sure, always ask your skip delivery driver for guidance on how to fill your skip.

A skip can be placed anywhere on private property as long as the skip delivery driver can access the location when the skip wagon collects it. You must not move a skip once it’s been placed as this could make the skip inaccessible on collection.

The size of skip you need depends on what you need it for. Skips are often suitable for removing dense or heavy waste but can also be used for things such as green waste and house clearances. Call us on 01362 531020 for guidance on skip sizes.

The below list is what cannot be placed in a skip and is considered hazardous waste:

  • Aerosols
  • Anti-freeze
  • Asbestos
  • Batteries
  • Biological waste
  • Corrosive liquid
  • Explosives
  • Fire extinguishers
  • Fluorescent tubes and light bulbs
  • Fridges

  • Medical waste
  • Motor oils
  • Paint
  • Pesticides
  • Plasterboard
  • Solvents
  • Televisions and computer monitors
  • Vehicle batteries
  • Vehicle wheels

We’d recommend an entrance point of around 3m (10ft) to allow easy access for the skip wagon. However, we can arrange for the skip to be placed outside of the entrance. Call us on 01362 531020 for guidance on skip delivery points.

It’s always worth calling your local council and enquiring about hiring a skip. Generally speaking, you won’t need to inform them, but it’s best to be safe. That said, if you need to leave your skip on public property e.g. a path or street, you will need to obtain a permit. Call 01362 531020 and we can obtain a permit for you.

Dereham Skips have a standard skip hire duration of 14 days but we also allow you to have your skip for longer.  This can be extended at a price of £25.00 (inc VAT) per week (up to a maximum of 4 weeks). Call 01362 531020 to discuss long-term skip hire, or for periods of greater than 7 days.
