Hiring a Skip for your Driveway Installation

One of the most common uses for skip hire is driveway work. Almost all driveway installations cause a considerable amount of waste, whether it be a new driveway, or replacing an old driveway. Hiring a skip for your drive and path removal waste can be an affordable and convenient waste removal solution.

Driveway with Block Paving

Most of the waste collected, if not all, is recycled, which makes skip hire a very environmentally friendly waste disposal solution. Whether you are replacing your drive, and need to throw away gravel, tarmac, block paving or concrete, there are a range of different skip sizes available to take your waste.

When hiring a skip for a driveway installation, it is important to remember that you will not be able to place the skip on your drive. If you do not have suitable room on your property for the skip, it will need to be placed on council land, such as the road outside your house. When a hired skip is placed on council land, you will require a council skip permit (also commonly referred to as a skip licence). The cost of a skip permit can vary between councils, with some costing as little as £15, whilst others charge in excess of £60.

To ensure you receive a great deal on your skip hire, we always recommend that you request at least 3 quotes for a comparable sized skip. This will give you a better understanding of the prices of skips in your area. When choosing a skip hire provider, always ensure that they are licenced to carry waste, and carry public liability insurance.

"that's good.  to be fair, the power tool type Li-Ion battery packs are generally a lot sturdier and less volatile than the Li-Po type used in radio controlled planes etc"

"Viburnum rhytidophyllum.  Horrible plant, I would always take it out if I had the chance.  If you have to prune it, do it on a rainy day.
Never had a problem with any other variety."

check your charger manual to make sure the green/red flashing does not indicate a bad cell - a good charger should point blank refuse to charge a battery with a bad cell.  Li-ion batteries can do very weird things when they have a bad cell. …"
