Skip Hire Amersham

Employing a Skip Hire company in Amersham is simple if you understand what you're doing. So here are several things you must know about skip hire:

Hiring a skip in Amersham

You can:

  • Look in a neighborhood business directory or on the net for 'skip hire'.
  • Search in your local council's site - since many councils provide a summary of waste contractors in their region. 
  • Examine skips on drives and roads near you. By law, the operators must put their name and contact details to the skip. Choose some or each and every one of these operators - and give a call to them. 
  • Contact Waste King

Prevent mistakes

Check together with the Environment Agency that the operator is properly qualified and licensed to take waste.
Ask the operator for its waste carrier license number.
Visit the Environment Agency's website and check if this amount relates to a valid permit.
Request to see a copy of the operator's public liability insurance - in case you must pursue an insurance claim, should the operator damage your property while delivering or gathering the skip.

Skip size

Skips can be found in a number of sizes - and adhere to the 'imperial' measures of cubic yards. A cubic yard is actually a space measuring one yard (three feet or 0.92 metres) by one yard by one yard. This equates - nearly - to two regular washing machines or dishwashers, or to one erect fridgefreezer.

These two skip sizes of skip are known - confusingly - as 'contractors' skips'. Please note that many councils don't allow skips using a capacity larger than eight cubic yards to be placed on a public highway.

The optimum skip size for you will be the one which lets you use all of its own space to feature all of the waste you should dispose of. In case you can't fill the dumpster with waste, you're paying cash to only transfer air.

Loading the skip

If you can't load the skip yourself - or get some of your friends and family to do it for you - you likely need to take a look at alternatives for getting rid of your waste materials. You may contact Waste King, the labour is provided both by a specialist waste clearance company, which to load the waste materials along with the vehicle with which to remove it.

Skip lorries have a tendency to be between eight and half feet and nine and half feet wide. They tend to weigh at least 7.5 tonnes. On The Other Hand, the skip should be put on the road adjacent to your own property - and that means you'll need a skip permit.

Both the parking suspension and also the permit not only cost money but will take a couple of days to arrange.

How long can I keep a skip?

Operators will want to collect the (total) skip within a week - or in two weeks at the most. You must agree and discuss this with the skip hire business - if you really need the skip to be removed sooner - or later. If the skip's being put on the road, you got to take account of the terms of your own skip permit and any parking suspension that needs to be in place. These two things cost money. So the longer that the skip's there, the more cash it costs you.

What can I place in a skip located in Amersham?

  • Plasterboard
  • Paint and cans of paint 
  • Fluorescent tubes 
  • Liquids 
  • Oil, petrol or diesel 
  • Electrical appliances and equipment, including televisions and computer screens; refrigerators, freezers and air conditioning units 
  • Batteries 
  • Gas canisters and gas bottles 
  • Asbestos 
  • Tyres 
  • Hazardous and poisonous materials 
  • Clinical or medical waste, including syringes 


In addition, the skip ought to be 'level filled' - that is, the waste should be level with but not above the edges of the skip. The operator can - legitimately - charge you extra cash for the hire of the skip or request you to really remove the excessive waste before the skip may be removed, in case the waste is above these edges.
