Frequently Asked Questions:

Hitchin Skips Telephone Number
  • What can I put in the skip?

    Skips are for general and inert waste - which is neither chemically or biologically reactive, and will not decompose. No Fridges, or Hazardous waste which includes: solvents, liquids or asbestos.

    For a full list of things that cannot be put in a skip please contact us, but please don't put in any of the following:

    • Paint
    • Engine Oil / Fluid
    • Asbestos
    • Gas Bottle / Cylinder / Fire Extinguisher
    • Fridges / Freezers
    • Vehicle Tyres
    • Solvents
  • Where can the skips be placed?

    Skips cannot be placed on the highway without a permit and correct signage and lights. Please contact us if you cannot place on private land (remember the grass verge outside your house may not be owned by you!). Alternatively, we may be able to organise a wait and load facility.

  • What access is needed to deliver a skip?

    As the vehicles delivering to your house are LGV's and normally very large, please make sure that there is sufficient access to allow it in/out safely. If you are unsure, please contact us and we can provide you with the approximate dimensions required.

  • So what size skips are available, and how do I order?

    Once you have decided what you require, just give us a call to arrange delivery.

  • What size do I need?

    Be realistic about what you have to throw away as getting two skips can be far more expensive than one big one! All skips must be level loaded so they can be safely transported on the road.

  • Is my waste Recycled?

    At D & A Skips, we endeavour to make sure that at least 70% of our skips are sent to a MRF (Material's Recycling Facility) and anything that can be recovered will be sent for recycling.

  • How full can I load the Skip?

    You cannot load the Skip any higher than the vertical sides.
