Professional Skip Hire in London
With a range of sizes to choose from, we can get your skip delivered and collected fast throughout all of London. We’re strategically located close to Central London so we’re able to offer a fast turnaround on most skip bookings. Whether you need rubbish clearing in London’s busy West End or you’re based in the heart of the financial City, we’re the obvious choice for smooth, hassle-free London skip hire.
Permits – Unless your skip is going to be situated on private land, you’ll need a skip permit. The application process can vary from borough to borough so we recommend contacting us to see if we can arrange it on your behalf. Your skip will also need to be visible at night on London’s roads to make sure that motorists, cyclists and pedestrians can easily see it. We’re happy to advise on ways to make sure your skip is safe for other members of the general public.
We’re not middle-men – There are quite a few London skip hire and waste management companies that act as a middle-man or an agency for other locally based skip companies, which pushes the price up once they’ve added their commission on top. Unlike these, we have our own skips and trucks that operate daily throughout London’s busy road network. Because we hire our London skips to you directly, we can keep our prices down and stay competitive.
Wait and load – We offer a fast and efficient “wait and load” London skip hire service which is ideal for situations where placing a skip on the road or on private land isn’t a viable option. With this type of service, no permit is required as the skip won’t be left in-situ for any length of time. In case this service isn’t something you’re familiar with, we arrive with the skip, lower it to the ground and wait for it to be loaded there and then. This usually takes up to 30 minutes, and our driver will wait whilst you load you unwanted rubbish into the skip. Once full, it’s lifted straight back onto the truck and taken away immediately.
This type of service is ideal if you don’t want the added hassle and expense of getting a skip permit in London, or just simply because you want your waste removed as quickly as possible.
Skip Exchanges – For small projects, carefully choosing the right size of skip for the job will usually mean that you’ll only need to book one of our skips. However, there are many cases where you’ll know that several skips will be required to get the job done. Our skip exchange service is perfect for these types of situations.
We’ll arrive with an empty skip and take the full one away at the same time so you can continue with your project without interruptions or having to wait for an empty skip being delivered at a later time. Get in touch with Metro Waste today for a quick London skip hire quote.
Domestic/residential London skip hire
Regardless of whether you live in a house or a flat in London, hiring a skip for the first time can be a daunting experience. Everyone knows that alongside the honest, reliable companies there are always going to be a few rogue traders and we appreciate that it can sometimes be difficult choosing the right skip hire company.
You want a company that’s going to do what they say they’re going to do; charge you the price that’s already been agreed, turn up with the empty skip on time and then take it away when you want them to.
Reliable London Skip Hire Alternative Service for Lower Budgets
We also offer an excellent skip hire alternative service for your project if our skip hire prices are more than your set budget. There are sometimes circumstances where hiring a skip is not possible or our alternative service can be cheaper and more practical.
Bulkier waste may be cheaper to remove using our alternative skip hire service – See our other waste removal options
Over 25 years trading in London
Metro Waste are one of London’s more established waste management companies and we’ve been in business for over 25 years. We’re not some start-up, fly-by-night company that’s only interested in taking your money and then disappearing. We worked hard to build a good reputation over the years and we want to keep it.
We don’t just deal with smaller, domestic skip hire customers in London, we have many larger corporate and construction clients throughout London too, and having a good reputation as an honest and reliable trader is important to us and to them. It doesn’t matter whether you’re only hiring one skip from us to clear your home or whether you’re a large construction company that orders 25 skips per week from us – you can still expect the same, high level of service from us.
If you’ve hired London builders to do some renovation work to your home, they’ll usually book a skip themselves to clear away the rubbish and waste they accumulate, but you still can book a skip directly yourself through Metro Waste if you prefer. Similarly, if you’re a DIY buff and are doing some building or renovation work yourself, you’ll need a skip to dispose of the waste you create. Perhaps you’re fitting a new kitchen or bathroom in your London home and need to clear away the rubbish from the old one or maybe you’re putting down a new patio or fitting a conservatory in the garden yourself. Whatever the situation, it’s at times like this you need to keep the area clean and free of waste. This is where hiring a skip is the perfect solution for the job at hand. Metro Waste cover most parts of London so have a quick check that we cover your area, and if we do, you can book your skip quickly and easily through us to clear away all your building waste in your own time.
London skip hire for your garden
With a range of skip sizes available, Metro Waste can provide the right type of skip to fit the job. Our 6-yard skips are perfect for all the heavier types of garden waste such as soil, clay and rubble. Alternatively, if you’ve got lighter, bulkier rubbish such as an old wooden fence, the leftover rubbish from an old conservatory or shed or you’re clearing out the garage, our 8-yard or 12-yard skip will probably be better suited to the job. If hiring a skip isn’t right for you and you’d prefer us to do all the hard work for you, we also have a London garden waste clearance service where we do all the hard work for you.
London Commercial Skip Hire
The high density of London’s offices, shops, factories and landlord-owned properties means that there are an awful lot of businesses all crammed into one place. Whatever one of these businesses you’re involved in, you’ve probably considered hiring a skip at one time or another to get rid of some unwanted waste.
We deal with businesses like yours on a daily basis and our professional approach will be one less headache for you to worry about.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a busy landlord with property that needs clearing out or if you’re an office or shop manager that’s been given the task of ordering a skip to get rid of some of your company’s unwanted waste, we can get the job done.
If there’s anything you’re not sure about, our team of office professionals will know the answer to your question. We can help you with choosing the right size skip depending on the amount and type of rubbish you need to get rid of, and we can help with arranging a permit too.

Skips for busy London construction sites
Running a busy construction site in London isn’t easy. Managing the workforce and dealing with the weather, health and safety, passers-by and any other unforeseen obstacles is a constant drain on your valuable time. Chances are you’re going to need to hire a few skips for your construction project at some stage of the build and the last thing you need is to have to deal with a skip hire company that doesn’t do what they say they’re going to.

Whether it’s for a small London building project, a large new-build or a big renovation, we’ve seen it all. We can help deal with permits, arrange fast skip exchanges or provide a fast ‘wait and load’ skip hire service if this is what you need.
