Renovating your garden can create a lot of waste greenery that simply won’t fit in your normal garden waste recycling bin. Our garden waste skip hire guide will cover everything you need to know about getting rid of garden waste in a skip, so you can complete your landscaping projects with ease this summer!

Why hire a skip for garden waste?

You may be wondering why you might need a skip when you already have a bin dedicated to this kind of waste. Using your council bin means:

  • You’ll have to wait for the collection day until all of your waste is collected
  • Moving the bin to the right place for it to be collected
  • The bin can’t block public walkways
  • Not overloading the bin, otherwise it won’t be collected
  • Too small to fit in all your waste

When you opt for a skip hire, you’ll have total flexibility over when your skip will be picked up and more room to get rid of your waste all in one go. You’ll also have the peace of mind knowing that your waste will be recycled thoroughly, making a skip hire service an environmentally friendly way of disposing of garden waste. 

What garden waste materials are allowed in a skip?

Clearing out your garden will produce a variety of waste materials that need getting rid of. The skip can take a multitude of materials including: 

  • Soil
  • Leaves
  • Wood
  • Patio slabs
  • Grass
  • Plant pots
  • Bricks
  • Garden furniture

If you’re wondering what you can’t put in a skip, then please refer to our FAQs which clear up any questions you may have about skip use. If you’re getting rid of a lot of one type of material, then we suggest hiring a HIPPOBAG which makes the disposal process easier for the professionals. 

What skip size is right for you?

We have a wide variety of skips available and choosing your skip will entirely depend on the intended use. For most garden clear outs and renovations, you won’t need more than a mini skip, but if you’re still unsure, then get in contact with a member of our friendly team and they’ll help you decide which one to order. 

Do I need a permit for my skip hire?

If you’re planning to put your skip on private land, a permit won’t be required. If you want to put your skip on a public area such as a road or parking lot, you’ll need a permit. However we will sort out the permit for you when you order a skip, ensuring the process is less of a hassle for you. 

Here at Thompson Fuel & Skip hire, we’re passionate about recycling. We aim to recycle more than 90% of the materials we collect, making our services highly environmentally friendly, giving you peace of mind that your materials will be dealt with correctly.
