Skip Hire Prices

DMBC Council Skip Permits: If the skip will be located on a public highway or pavement, for example, a permit must be issued. We arrange this on your behalf, and the permit costs £20.00 for a maximum of 7 days.


All prices are for one week’s hire, and all our skips have Wheelbarrow access (drop door).

Hire prices are correct as of December 2016

Note: In order to collect the skip within the DMBC time limit, our general rule is to allocate a six day hire period, leaving the last day for the collection. We are advised DMBC could impose a £50 penalty if the skip has run out of permit time, so our options are limited. Alternately we can Re-Permit the skip for a second hire period, at a cost of a further £20.00.
