Residential skip hire
Maybe your home in Dulwich needs de-cluttering or the garage, garden or loft needs a clearout. Perhaps you’ve just fitted a new kitchen or bathroom and need to dispose of the old one.
If you’ve decided to spruce up the garden or demolish that old shed to make space for a new one, you’ll need to remove all that unwanted waste at some point. That’s when it’s time to call in the skip hire professionals.
If you’ve never hired one of our skips before, you may be uncertain about what size you’ll need for the type of waste you’re disposing of. That’s not a problem; simply get in touch and let us know and our team will happy to provide you with free, expert advice.
If you’re not sure what a skip permit is or whether or not you may need one, we can help with that too. If your skip will be left on a Dulwich road (as in the image above), you’ll need a permit; if it’s placed on your own land such as a driveway, you won’t. Don’t worry, if you do require a permit, we can help you arrange that as well.

In 1538, Henry VIII seized control of Dulwich and sold it to a goldsmith named Thomas Calton for £609. Calton’s grandson, Sir Francis Calton, made a tidy profit when he sold the Manor of Dulwich for £4,900 in 1605 to an Elizabethan actor and entrepreneur called Edward Alleyn.
Alleyn vested his wealth in a charitable foundation, Alleyn’s College of God’s Gift, which was established in 1619. The charity’s modern-day successor, The Dulwich Estate, still owns an enormous 1,500 acres (6.1 km2) in the area, including a number of private roads and a tollgate, which is well-known by locals. Alleyn also constructed a school, a chapel and almshouses in the area. Dulwich Almshouse Charity and Christ’s Chapel of God’s Gift at Dulwich (where Alleyn is buried) still fulfil their original functions.
The Dulwich Tollgate
Dulwich straddles the ever-busy South Circular Road (A205), which is, of course, south London’s urban ring road and also passing through the area is the A2199 and College Road, which features the working tollgate which dates back to 1789.
