If you are thinking about that spring clean and can’t decide whether to get a skip or head to the tip, here’s our list of things we get asked on a daily basis to help you make that all important decision.

Q: What can’t I put in my skip?

A: There are a few items that we can’t accept in our skips including fridges that have not been degassed, gas or pressurised containers and hazardous waste including paint, liquid, solvents and asbestos. We can accept mattresses but this will incur an additional charge. We ask that plasterboard is bagged where possible as it is landfill exempt and can’t be mixed with general waste.

Q: How long can I keep my skip for?

A: We don’t have a fixed time that our customers can keep their skips for but our skip hire is usually based on one to two weeks.

Q: Do you charge extra if I want to keep my skip for longer than two weeks?

A: No, we don’t charge hire or rental charges unless this is part of your hire agreement.

Q: What happens if I can’t fit a skip on my driveway?

A: If your skip needs to go on the public highway it will need a permit from East Sussex County Council. We can obtain this for you but need five working days’ notice so please contact our office for further details.

Q: What is a wait and load service?

A: A wait and load service involves a skip being dropped off to you for 20-30 minutes so that it can be filled. The driver waits while you load the skip and then takes it away, saving the cost of a road licence.

Q: What other services do you provide?

A: We provide grab and tipper lorry hire for muck away and recycled aggregate deliveries and rolonof hire for large bulky waste. We also supply concrete and offer recycling services including cardboard collections.
