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

How much is a skip to hire?

Our quotes are based on the size of the skip you need, the frequency of skip collections and replacements, the type of waste we will collect, and location. We don’t have a set price list because we want to give you an accurate cost considering all these factors. Fill in our form to hire a skip or contact us to speak to an advisor.

How much does rubbish clearance cost?

We collect all kinds of rubbish in various environments and projects. There’s no set cost to rubbish collection. Get in touch with us to get a quote. We base our prices on your location, the volume and type of rubbish, and other factors. We offer competitive prices for all rubbish collection jobs and work to meet your needs.

What is waste management?

Waste management encompasses all the stages required to deal with waste to minimise its effect on people and the environment, from its creation to its final disposal. Businesses have certain responsibilities called a ‘duty of care’ enforced by the Environmental Agency to hold them accountable for the waste they produce.

These duties involve ensuring hazardous waste is dealt with by trained specialists and disposed of properly, that those recycling requirements are met to protect the environment from undue damage, and that all waste disposal is recorded and traceable.

How much is a commercial waste collection?

Contact us for a quote on commercial waste collection. We’ll endeavour to provide you with the best deal we can. We take various factors into consideration in waste management quotations, primarily the volume and type of waste, the number of collections needed, the location, and whether it’s a one-off job or a recurring collection.

How do I know what size skip I need?

This depends on the volume of material being produced and how often you want your skip to be removed and replaced with an empty one. A one-room house renovation might only require a 4 yard skip, whereas a commercial construction project would suit a larger 12 yard skip every two weeks until completion of the project. See our skip hire page for more details on the sizes of our skips and what they can be used for.

How much does it cost to hire a grab lorry?

Hiring a grab lorry is an excellent alternative to a skip if you prefer that waste material be collected directly from your site. You might choose not to use a skip because there isn’t sufficient space or the site is too complex. Operations might make a grab lorry more efficient or cost-effective. Contact us to get started on a quote for grab lorry hire. We’ll ask questions about the sort of waste material to be collected, its volume, the location and the site's layout. Once we have an idea of the work involved, we can provide a quote.

What is hazardous waste?

Waste is ‘hazardous’ when it poses a threat to human or animal health or could damage the environment. These ‘hazards’ posed can have effects that are toxic, flammable, irritant, explosive, corrosive, and so on. There are many different types of hazardous waste; not all are disposed of in the same way.

Some waste items, like freezers, need to be broken down into their separate components and these components disposed of individually. Disposing of hazardous waste together with general waste can cause non-hazardous waste streams to become contaminated, leading to environmental damage and wasted resources.

How is hazardous waste disposed of?

For businesses and individuals, disposing of hazardous waste means hiring a licensed specialist who can handle the waste properly. This means classifying it, collecting it, transporting it, and disposing of it. Many types of hazardous waste can’t go to landfill and even storing them needs to be carefully planned and monitored.

Some types of hazardous waste are recyclable, which we always aim to do at TW services. For example, oil-based paints, batteries, butane tanks, and fluorescent lightbulbs can all be recycled.
