HOW TO ORDER THE RIGHT SKIP

Choose the right skip and you will avoid; over-spending; having to order a second skip, and; potential additional charges resulting from "contaminated loads".

But choosing the right skip  can be confusing, as all suppliers have their own peculiarities.

So at Skip Hire GB, we like to keep things simple, with only two types of bins; 'light' and 'heavy', as further explained below.
