Skips in Brixton, Clapham, Fulham, Putney and all London Areas | Skip Sizes


Having provided services across London for more than 25 years, it is important to us that customers and clients from all sectors feel they receive value from our services. Everybody has different waste management needs. A domestic customer with a small garden or household clearance to undertake will only need one of our mini skips to perform a green waste or rubbish removal. On the other hand, a larger commercial client will need a skip hire service that offers them maxi-sized units or one of our largest roll-on/roll-off containers.

Construction companies working on high-rise builds might also require one of our specialist services, like crane lift skip hire.

Whoever you are, and whatever it is you might require from us as a waste management company, Metro Waste can provide it. We are the capital’s favourite skip hire company for good reason, and one of the most popular attributes of our service is the ability to supply skips in so many sizes.

Located in Battersea, we deliver skips to all London areas including:

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

Metro Waste recycles more than 90% of everything received from collected skips. By taking material to licensed waste transfer stations, where everything undergoes rigorous screening and processing, we can help to uphold all government-led recycling rates and reduce how much waste goes to landfill.

We can assist you with obtaining permits for skips should you need to place a unit on the roadside for a specific amount of time, and our company strives to deliver a responsive skip hire service with same-day or next day deliveries and collections. We can also offer a grab hire and wait-and load service.

If you need to hire one of our skips, the easiest way to get the best value from us is to refer to our skip size guide so you only pay for the space you need.

You can also find out more about skips and skip hire in our news section.
