We have many different sizes of skip available so please don’t hesitate to call our helpful office to discuss your exact requirements but as a rough guide:
- 4 Tonne Midi Skip: Very popular for kuitchen & bathroom refits, smaller building jobs and garden clearances. Generally take around 65-85 bin bags.
- 8 Tonne Maxi Builders Skip: Ideally sized for the larger building jobs & capable of taking 180-240 bin bags.
- We also have several sizes of Roll on/Roll Off skip available for specialist & large scale activities.
How large a skip do I need? Call us to discuss your requirements if you’re unsure – it’s always best to allow yourself some leeway as you’ll nearly always find more waste than you were expecting! We have everything from small mini skips for personal clear-outs through to RORO roll on/off skips for specialist or large scale clearances.
How much can I put in a skip? Skips can be filled to no more than level with the top of the skip – this is to enable safe transportation of your waste.
Where can the skips be placed? Skips cannot be placed on the public highway without a permit (the cost of this varies from council to council). We will obtain the necessary Local Authority permit for you if required.
How much space do you need to unload the skip? The vehicles delivering your skip will need enough space to unload the skip safely. Our drivers are extremely skilled at placing & retrieving skips in a variety of locations but if you think it might be particularly difficult then please ask the office for assistance.
What can I put in the skip? Fridges and asbestos are not permitted, but we can take everything else.
Is my waste Recycled? At Martlands Skips, waste is recycled at our own dedicated recycling centre.
How do I pay? Most of our customers find it convenient to pay by credit card – we accept all major credit cards.
