Average Skip Hire Prices in London

Average Skip Hire Prices

If you have recently had a construction project carried out or cleared out your home or office, you may have a lot of rubbish that needs disposal. Hiring a skip is one solution but may not be the most cost effective.

There are a number of skip hire companies in London. Let’s take a look at the pricing.

Skip Hire Prices in London

The average price of skip hire in  London  is around £265 for a 6-yard builders skip. Most council owned land also requires a skip permit which can cost anything from about £20 to more than £100 depending on the borough. The cost increases according to the period for which a permit is required.

Here are some examples: in Greenwich, you would have to pay £47 for a 28 day skip hire permit which together with the skip and other fees comes  to £515. In Brent this  increases to £636.50 taking account of £49.50 for skip hire permit and £46 per day for parking suspension cost.

If you choose to hire a skip you should be prepared for additional costs; you  also need to apply for skip hire permit and sometimes a parking bay suspension.

Flytipping: What is it? and what to do if you fall victim?

Flytipping affects you when someone dumps unwanted rubbish on your land. Most such incidents in the UK involve general waste: assorted garbage bags, tyres, soiled mattresses, building waste etc. Whenever people decide to dispose of their waste outside of designated bins or recycling centres, they are flytipping. It’s frustrating and overwhelming to find yourself a victim of this irresponsible and thoughtless behaviour.

Flytipping is a crime that is on the increase in England. The number of reported incidents was up by more than a third in 2016/17 and in recent years shows no signs of improvement. Not only is illegally deposited rubbish an eyesore, it can be a hazard to local wildlife. Often, rubbish can contaminate natural areas, like woodland and streams.

Councils have their own policies but any clean-up is an expense for the community at large and impacts our rates and taxes. If flytipping occurs on private land or property, the  owner is responsible for any clean-up.

What To Do If You’re a Victim

First of all, notify the local authority so that an incident can be recorded. Although unlikely, authorities can sometimes track down the perpetrators.

You may then choose to deal with the unwanted rubbish yourself but it could be far better to enlist professional help from a licensed service.
