Skip sizes guide

Our skip sizes range from four to 12 cubic yards which provide a very cost-effective way to dispose of bulky waste including furniture and garden waste. For a skip that will be placed on the road, there will be an extra charge of £50.00 (per week) added for a permit from the council. If a permit is required, it takes 3 days to obtain permission from the local authority so factor this in when you’re planning the hire of your skip.

To help you decide which size skip would be best for you, please refer to our waste skip sizes guide pages. We’ve included skip sizes in yards and skip capacity m3 to give you a good idea of what will fit in each skip.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I put in a hired skip?

Hiring a skip is a sensible solution for dealing with substantial amounts of waste from garden makeovers, house clearances and renovation projects.

As a rule of thumb, we accept the following in our hired skips:

  • Building rubble
  • Carpet and upholstery
  • Construction waste
  • Garden waste
  • Furnishings and furniture
  • Metal
  • Plastic
  • Wood

However, if you’re unsure whether something needs to be kept separate from your skip hire in Thanet, talk to the team today.

We will inform you if there’s anything to avoid, ensuring you aren’t fined or charged extra when our specialists collect and sort the waste stored inside your skip.

Where is the best place to put a skip?

When you book your skip hire in Thanet with us, we’ll ask you for the delivery address and whether you’d like to keep the skip on or off the road.

As you fill the skip with waste, it’ll get heavier and heavier, so it needs to be placed somewhere that can withstand the weight of the skip and its contents.

With that said, the best place to position a skip is on hard, level ground, such as a concrete driveway or tarmacked road.

If you have room on your driveway, you won’t need to worry about getting a permit for your skip hire in Thanet. However, if you have no option but to leave your hired skip on the road, it mustn’t cause any obstructions and you need to obtain permission from the council beforehand.

How much does skip hire cost in Thanet?

The price you’ll pay for skip hire in Thanet can vary depending on several factors, including your required skip size, the duration of your project and where the skip will be positioned.

For example, smaller skips tend to cost less than larger ones but don’t fit as much waste in – meaning they’re best suited to DIY jobs and garden projects.

Hiring a bigger container may cost more initially – but if you’re likely to generate a lot of rubbish, then you won’t need to hire a second (or third) one to accommodate all materials – costing you less in the long run.

At TW Services, we give you the option to pick a delivery and collection slot. Generally, the longer your skip is needed on-site, the more you’ll pay.

Arranging to have your hired skip delivered and placed on your private land is bound to cost less than leaving it on the road, as you don’t need to acquire a permit for your skip hire in Thanet.
