What do I do when I have finished with the skip?

When the skip is full, a simple call to the office notifying us of collection is all that is required. Removal can take a few days. If you require urgent removal, please notify us we will happily schedule the collection for an allotted date.


How do I pay for the skip?

We can take payment over the phone using a credit or debit card which incurs no extra cost. This is ideal if you do not plan to be in at the time of delivery. A cash payment can be made to the driver on the day,


What am I allowed and not allowed to put in the skip?

You can put bricks, hard core, rubble, soil (that isn’t contaminated), domestic waste such as packaging, furniture, furnishings, fixtures and non electrical fittings, wood, metal and plastic into the skip. The materials that we are unable to take away in a skip include waste electrical and electronic equipment, gas bottles, chemicals and solvents, batteries, clinical waste, liquids, plasterboard, tyres and asbestos.


What if I need to put the skip on the road?

When a skip is placed on the public highway, permission is needed from the local authority. The cost, duration and conditions are different depending on the authority.


What size skip should I hire?

It is hard to visualise the size of a skip in relation to the amount of waste you have – our most popular size is the 6 yard skip (4.6 cubic metres). It is approximately the size of an average car. Remember, one large skip is more cost effective than two smaller ones.

Before finalising your Skip Hire with Red Skips 2U Ltd, check you have allowed for the following:


  • Is the skip of a sufficient size for the volume of waste you need to dispose of? If you are unsure, use our Skip Size Guide above to give you a rough estimate of the size required.
  • Have you considered the types of waste that you will be placing in your skip, especially if they are hazardous, and the waste falls within the permitted waste types? Call us if unsure.
  • Will you be able to fill the skip and have it ready for collection within the hire period?
  • If placing the skip on your private property, have you checked that there is sufficient room for it to be delivered, and the area is free from obstructions?
  • If placing the skip on a public highway, have you applied for and received a permit to allow you to do so from your local Council?
