Skip Hire Dunstable

Hiring a skip from the Waste King  skip hire company in Dunstable is straight forward in the event that you know what you're doing. So here are some things you have to know about skip hire:


Waste King is a skip hire company to call if you require rubbish removing from your home, office or builder site in Teagreen. We offer a great low cost skip for hire service that delivers on time; we are there when you need us. We take care of all the necessary paperwork that applies to waste management, including permits, site audits and we provide free professional advice.

Size available for our Skip hire in Dunstable

Skips come in a number of sizes - and adhere to the 'imperial' measures of cubic yards. This equates - approximately - to two standard washing machines or dishwashers, or to one vertical fridge-freezer. 

The most familiar size of dumpster - in a residential area - is one which holds either six or eight cubic yards of substances. Both these sizes of skip are known - confusingly - as 'contractors' skips'. Please note that lots of councils don't allow skips using a capacity bigger than eight cubic yards to be placed on a public highway. 

The optimum size of skip for your own need is the one which enables you to use all of its own space to contain all of the waste you should dispose of. In the event you can't fill the skip with waste, you're paying cash to merely transfer air.

Loading the skip in Dunstable

In the event that you can't load the skip yourself - or get some of your relatives and buddies to do it for you - you probably need to have a look at options for getting cleared of your waste materials. You could contact Waste King, a specialist waste clearance business, which provides both the labour to load the vehicle as well as the waste materials with which to remove it. 

Skip lorries have a tendency to be between eight and half feet and nine and half feet wide. They have a tendency to weigh at least 7.5 tonnes. Otherwise, the skip must be set on the road adjacent to your property - and that means you'll need a skip permit. In addition, if the dumpster is being placed in a controlled parking zone - such as in a residents' parking area, pay & display parking bay or even where there's a single yellow line painted close to the kerb - you'll have to get a parking suspension. 

Both the parking suspension as well as the skip permit not only cost money but will take several days to organize.

How long can I keep a dumpster? 

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

 So what can I set in a skip found in Dunstable?

More or less anything except:

  • 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 ac units 
  • Batteries 
  • Gas canisters and gas bottles 
  • Asbestos 
  • Tyres 
  • Hazardous and noxious substances 
  • Clinical or medical waste, including syringes 

The operator can - legitimately - charge you extra cash for the hire of the skip or request you to really remove the waste before the skip might be removed, in case the waste is above these edges.
