Skip Hire in Boston
If you’re looking to clean out a garden shed, renovate a tired looking kitchen, or even unclutter a messy children’s room, a skip is an easy and cost-effective way to discard what is getting in your way. Our Boston skip hire service provides a very simple solution – we will drop a skip off, you load it up, and we collect it.
When you have a small amount of waste to dispose of, the mini skip could be a fantastic option. Looking for something a bit bigger? Perhaps the 4 yard skip could be the answer. Or perhaps you have got a large task on your hands, like building an extension or getting rid of bulky furniture. For this, we can provide a range of big builders skips. However large or small your waste requirements might be, we can offer the skip that is perfect for the circumstances.
Whether it be to your house or even your business, our team can deliver a skip to wherever you need it in Boston. Jobs could happen anywhere, and our skips will be there to meet your needs.

Below are some of the frequently asked questions we receive about our skip hire service.
Boston Skip Hire FAQs
Will you deliver skips across Lincolnshire?
Yes. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we are able to deliver skips to domestic and industrial customers across Lincolnshire and anywhere else within the UK.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Boston?
The cost of getting a skip in Boston will depend on the size of skip you want. The cheapest skip available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and general clearances. If you want a larger skip, like an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The cost will also increase if you want to have a skip on the highway, because you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Can I dispose of electronic items in the skip?
Unfortunately not, since electrical products including old televisions, refrigerators, laptops and monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects must be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly manner.
What can I put in the skip?
This is one of the most common questions people have about our service. The main thing to consider is that you may fill your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of rubbish that may result from garden work, building work and household clearances.
Among the most typical things which we pick up in skips include garden soil, wood, tree cuttings, cabinets, sinks, and various other household objects.
However, there are some materials that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This includes any electrical items (fridges and freezers, monitors and washing machines for example), old tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials, and so disposing of them must adhere to an entirely different process to ensure they don’t result in damage to the environment.
What size skips do you supply?
This site offers a complete selection of skip sizes to household and industrial clients all over the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the modest 2 yard mini skip to the massive 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Here are the different sizes on offer, with a rough guide to how much waste each size is capable of holding:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags

- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
- 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags

Am I able to have a skip with a drop down door?
Virtually all skip sizes can be supplied with a drop door, which makes them easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste materials into the container, particularly with heavy materials, such as garden soil and rubble, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky objects, such as pieces of furniture.
How long can I keep a skip for?
Typically, you can keep the skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you don’t need to hurry through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is full prior to the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is regarded as the popular skip that is ordered across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builders skip is great for most building projects, which is where the name comes from.
The 8 yard builders skip is the largest option which can be used for hefty materials including soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.
Do I need to be at home when my skip will be delivered?
It is usually a good idea to be there when anybody delivers anything to your home. That allows you to make sure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be located exactly where you need it.
The same applies if you have a company. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.
However, when it is unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.
How long does it take to get a skip in Boston?
We can typically supply skips to Boston the following working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking system offers you a number of delivery dates to select from. So whether you want your skip to arrive ASAP or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
What happens to the rubbish?
After you have finished with your skip, we come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste transfer facility either in or local to Boston where we will separate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.
Is it ok to fill up my skip higher than the level load line?
You must not load your skip beyond the level load line. If you fill it over the tip of this mark, it means that the skip will not be safe and secure to transport, and you could be asked to remove the extra waste before it can be collected.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container that can be used to dispose of significant amounts of waste. Primarily, these type of containers are hired for commercial applications. However, domestic customers can also hire them. It is important to think about the space they take up, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be hired for light-weight materials including paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of garden soil and stone.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Boston?
To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work together with a wide range of local and national businesses. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to guarantee we can supply customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.
How much waste will the mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered by skip firms and is great for small DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms will provide a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
How do I order a skip?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you would like to hire. Tell us whether the skip will be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or public property (like the road). Then, select the date you need your skip to be delivered. Check your order details and then make payment with our secure online payment system. That is it! We will deliver your skip to Boston on the date you have chosen.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Boston?
Usually, it is possible to have a skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But in order to do this, you have got to have permission from your local council in Boston, which is called a skip permit. We can organise this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for your license, and it can sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
