Skip Hire in Balham, Brixton, Fulham and all London Areas


With a wide range of sizes to choose from, Metro Waste gets skips delivered and collected quickly throughout all of London.

Areas covered by our company include:

Battersea | Balham | Brixton | Clapham | Fulham | Putney | Stockwell | Tooting | Vauxhall | Wimbledon | London

With domestic skip hire and commercial skip hire available, we can fulfil the waste management needs of clients from all sectors and industries.

Skip Hire Permits

Unless skips are going to be situated on private land, you will need a permit. The application process can vary from borough to borough in London 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 public roads to make sure that motorists, cyclists and pedestrians can easily see them. We can advise you on ways to make sure skips are safe for other members of your community.

Some skip hire and waste management companies in London act as nothing more than middlemen or as agencies for other locally based skip companies. This pushes up the price of skips once the agency takes their commission on top. Unlike the middlemen, we have our own skips and trucks which operate daily throughout the capital under our own name and with our own staff.

Because we hire skips to you directly, we can keep our prices competitive.

Wait-and-Load Skip Hire

We offer a fast, efficient “wait-and-load” skip hire service which is perfect for situations when placing a skip on the roadside or on private land isn’t a viable option. With this type of service, no permit is required because the skip won’t be left in-situ for any length of time. In case this service isn’t something you are familiar with, we arrive with the skip, lower it to the ground and wait for it to be loaded there and then by either yourself or by your workforce.

This usually takes up to 30 minutes and we deal with all skip sizes.

Our driver will wait while you load unwanted rubbish into the skip and, once full, lifts the unit back onto the truck and takes it away immediately. This type of service is ideal if you don’t want the added hassle and expense of getting a skip permit from your local authority, or simply because you want your waste removed as quickly as possible to enable ongoing site operations.

We also offer a wait-and-load service using caged vans.

Skip Hire Exchanges and Grab Hire

For smaller projects, choosing the right size of unit for the job will usually mean that you’ll only need to book one of our skips. However, there are still many cases where you will know in advance that several skips will be required to get the job done. Our skip hire exchange service is perfect for every type of situation. We will arrive with an empty skip and take the full one away at the same time so that you can continue with your project without interruption or having to wait for an empty skip to be delivered at a later time.

We also offer an excellent alternative to skip hire if our prices are more than you have budgeted for in the project. There are other circumstances where hiring skips isn’t possible, such as not having anywhere to drop off the unit, and this is where our grab hire service can be cheaper and more practical. Bulk waste may also be cheaper to remove using our grab hire service.

Over 25 years of Trading Experience in London

Metro Waste is still one of London’s longest established waste management companies and we have been in business for over 25 years. We are not a start-up or fly-by-night company that is only interested in taking your money and then disappearing. We have worked hard to build a good reputation over the past quarter of a century, and we most certainly want to keep it. To do this, we always listen to our clients in Battersea, Balham, Brixton, Clapham, Fulham, Putney, Stockwell, Tooting, Vauxhall, Wimbledon and London.

By understanding your needs, we can always push harder to keep improving.

While we happily deal with domestic skip hire, we have larger corporate and construction clients throughout the capital too. Having a good reputation as an honest and reliable business is as important to us as it is to them. It doesn’t matter whether you are only hiring one skip from us to clear your home, or if you run a large-scale construction company that orders 25 skips per week.

You can still expect the same high levels of service from us with every order.
