Frequently Asked Questions about skip hire and waste disposal.

Where can I put my skip?

Your skip can be dropped off on your drive, garden, building site or on any piece of private land providing you have the owner’s permission

What if I want a skip on the road?

It is a legal requirement for us to obtain permission from the local council before placing any skip on the public highway, verge or pavement. We arrange all of this on your behalf and depending on which local authority area you live we can usually arrange the necessary permit within a day of two.

The permit will be valid for a period of 28 days and is held and insured by Able Waste Management Ltd.

There is an additional cost for this permit – please contact us with your postcode to obtain a quotation.

How long can I keep my skip?

Our standard hire period is 14 days or until the skip is full, whichever is the shorter. However we are always willing to negotiate for longer periods. Please contact our sales team.

Is there anything I cannot put in my skip?

Yes – basically please do not put fridges, freezers, tyres, gas bottles, car batteries, florescent tubes or asbestos into your skip. But don’t worry if you have any of these types of waste just give us a call and will advise you if we can collect the waste separately.

There are a myriad of rules and regulations pertaining to what constitutes hazardous waste. Different regulations apply to commercial premises and to householders. If you need advice please call or use the contact page.

How full can I load my skip?

We ask that for safety reasons you load your skip level with the top. Don’t forget we have to transport the skip on the e highway and even though our drivers net all skips we don’t want any waste sliding off the of the skip.

What will happen to my waste?

All Able Waste skips are taken back to our licenced waste recycling facility near Avonmouth, Bristol where the various waste streams are sorted for reprocessing and remanufacturing. Our aim is to minimise the amount of waste sent to landfill and maximise the amount of product we reclaim from our skip waste to reuse. All of our skip waste is processed at our recycling plant.
