Skip Hire Grimsby
If you’re wanting to clear out a garden shed, renovate a tired looking bathroom, or even unclutter a messy children’s bedroom, a skip is a simple and cost-effective way to discard what is getting in your way. Our Grimsby skip hire service offers a simple solution – we drop a skip off, you fill it up, and we take it away.
Should you have a small amount of rubbish to remove, the mini skip might be a fantastic option. In search of something slightly larger? Perhaps the 4 cubic yard midi skip could be the solution. Or perhaps you have a large project on your hands, such as building an extension or getting rid of furniture. For this, we have a range of big builders skips. However large or small your waste needs may be, we can provide the skip which is just right for the job.

Grimsby Skip Hire FAQs
How much waste will fit in the mini skip?
When you have a small quantity of rubbish to get rid of, a mini skip could be the ideal solution. What size is described as a mini skip differs from business to business, depending on what sizes they have.
2 cubic yards is probably the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some companies choose to provide a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. Cost is dependent on the actual size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are good for domestic work including modest DIY projects and shed clean ups. If you would like it put on your driveway and need room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
Usually, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you don’t have to rush through your project. If you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to collect it as quickly as possible.
What types of waste materials can I put in my skip?
It is possible to throw a variety of waste types into the skip. This includes timber, tile, metal or concrete from a property clearance. Tree and bush cuttings, top soil and stone from garden tasks are permitted also. Dated units from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be discarded in the skip.
However, there are a few things that you can’t put in a skip due to the potential ecological or health risks they may trigger.
You can’t get rid of your freezer, computer monitor or your old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. All of these things include hazardous components in one form or another. They must be discarded separately from normal waste.
Should you require hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to organise a separate collection for this material. Please email for more details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
Where will my rubbish go once the skip is collected?
Once you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste recycling station in or local to Grimsby where we will separate the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
Will a Grimsby skip hire company deliver my skip?
We use a network of both local and national skip hire firms to deliver skips to our customers in Grimsby and the rest of the UK. Every one of our partner skip hire companies are verified and evaluated to ensure they match our expectations for price, customer service, recycling and reliability.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you provide?
A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a large skip used to dispose of large amounts of rubbish. These skips are mainly for business use but can be used by domestic clients as well. Having said that, you will need a lot of room as these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger in comparison to the typical skip you will see on the side of the road.
As a result of the size, RORO containers should only be used for lightweight materials like plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not appropriate for disposing of soil and bricks.
How do you hire a skip?
Ordering a skip should not be difficult. That is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, type in your delivery address to view all the different skips we can deliver to Grimsby. Choose the size you would like to order, and confirm if it will be positioned on private property. Type in your details and then make payment using our secure payment platform.
After your order is complete, we will send a confirmation email with all of your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
Should I be in when the skip is delivered?
It usually is best if you can be in when anybody delivers something to your property. That allows you to ensure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be dropped precisely where you want it.
The same thing goes for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.
However, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.
Do all skips have a drop down door?
In general, almost all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, depending on size, availability and area. If you need a drop-down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip which has a drop door is primarily helpful when choosing a large builder’s skip, since it allows you to wheelbarrow waste materials into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini skips, because they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Grimsby?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit when it is positioned on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit if the skip will be on your private property, such as a drive or within your company premises.
If you have to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us as part of the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can locate the skip on your own property, it will save you some money.
Do you deliver to other areas in Lincolnshire?
Certainly, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skip sizes to areas across Lincolnshire, including Grimsby, Crowle, Winterton and Crowland. So no matter where you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Grimsby?
The cost of hiring a skip in Grimsby will depend on the size of skip you need. The least expensive skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you want a bigger skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The price will also increase if you need to have your skip positioned on the highway, as you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this will make it unsafe to transport, and you may be asked to empty any items higher than the level load line. This means you are not allowed to use sheets of wood, doors or any other object, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Skip companies have a legal duty to ensure that containers aren’t overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please be sure to order the appropriate size of skip to suit your needs and get in touch if you’re not sure which size you require. We would be pleased to help.
How many different skip sizes are available?

Can I get rid of electronic items in my skip?
Electric powered objects including TVs, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste stream and so cannot be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric goods must be segregated from other materials. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly manner.
What is the size of a builders skip?
The term builder’s skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The name originates from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders and tradespeople.
These large skips are fantastic for a multitude of household and commercial projects. These are the largest size skips which you can use for weighty builders waste including dirt, stone and bricks.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it for you on a day that suits you. We can typically give a next day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, as to go on public property (such as a highway), you must obtain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.
As a result of numerous factors that could impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it to be delivered within a morning or afternoon slot.
