Skip Hire London  – Information

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.

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 & Load Skip Hire

We offer a fast and efficient “wait and load” skip hire London 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 dumpster (an alternative name for a 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.

London Skip Hire 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 hire London 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. 

Alternative Skip Hire London Service For Lower Budgets

We also offer an excellent skip hire alternative service for your project if our prices are more than your set budget. There are some circumstances where hiring a London skip container isn’t 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 rubbish removal options

Over 25 years of 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.
