Frequently Asked Questions

Here are a selection of questions which we’re often asked. Please feel free to give us a call if you can’t find your answer here.

How can I pay?

When you order a skip using our online booking form, you’ll be invited to confirm your booking and pay via debit or credit card. There’s also the option to pay by PayPal to avoid the hassle of entering all your card details. If you order over the phone you can make a credit or debit card payment to our friendly staff.

How Long Can I Keep The Skip For?

We allow you to keep the skip for up to 14 days. Once it is full, give us a call and we will book you in for collection within 5 days, but please give us as much notice as you can.

How Wide Does My Drive Need To Be? Can The Skip Go Over A Wall?

As a guide we would ask for 9-10 feet width on the entrance to a driveway to allow the skip lorry to get in. However, it may be possible for the skip to be dropped onto the driveway from the entrance to the property.

We can put skips over walls and hedges, but they must be no higher than 3ft.

Do I Need A Permit?

Norfolk and Suffolk councils require all skips on the highway to have a permit. To obtain a permit you must have £5m liability insurance, which we do. Councils require up to five days to process a permit, so please bear this in mind when planning your project.

What Can I Put In My Skip?

We can take any solid, non-hazardous waste. This means we cannot take the following items: fluids, lead-acid batteries, asbestos, box-style televisions and monitors, fridges and freezers, fluorescent tubes, clinical waste and tyres.

All general household, commercial and garden wastes other than these are acceptable. We allow small quantities of plasterboard for free, but large quantities will incur an extra charge. All plasterboard must be physically separated from the rest of the waste – either in bags or tonne sacks – due to Environment Agency stipulations.
