Skip Guide

Rainbow Waste Management ltd is here to help you to choose the right skip hire for your waste disposal requirements
First of all, you need to determine what waste you have to get rid of. Be realistic about the amount - due to good Health & Safety practices by Rainbow, we are not able to collect skips if the waste is loaded higher than the sides of the skip. Overloaded skips are dangerous and cannot be legally transported. The skip sizes can be viewed on our website and will give you an idea of what's best for you.  If you need advice please call our friendly sales team on 01283 229808 who will be more than happy to help.

Do you accept Plasterboard inside the skip?

Due to Plasterboard being Hazardous waste, we do not accept Plasterboard inside our skips. However, we do offer a ton bag service for Plasterboard only.

Do you have soil or bricks to remove?

Why not use a Drop Door Builders' skip? They are ideal as wheelbarrows can be wheeled into the skip.

Where is the Skip going to be placed?

You need to think about access to your premises. For example, we would need to know the width between gateposts, etc - our largest skip vehicle needs at least 10 feet in width. Look for overhead cables and manhole covers. Driveways that are block paved or tarmac may be a problem when the skip vehicle is lifting the skip after you have filled it. Always check this when ordering - maybe a board to place under the skip can help.

Skip Permits

For skips that need to be placed on the road, footpath or grass verge, we have a legal requirement to apply for a permit with the local council. This normally takes 3 days and there is a charge, depending on which council you come under. Check with the office when ordering.

Special Requirements

If you have any special requirements, please let us know when you order your skip. For example, if you have a skip that cannot be left overnight, please tell us when you order so that we can plan ahead for this.
