The 10-yard skip. A popular option for larger construction and housebuilding projects. The 10-yard skip is a perfect option for sites that need a slightly larger container to store the bulky items of waste they are generating. Other skip hire sizes are available.
It can hold 90 to 140 bin bags.
All skips are to be placed on private land. If private land is not available and your skip is to be placed on the public highway a skip hire permit will be required. Additional charges enforced by the relevant local authority will be applied in such instances, in addition to the cost of hire. Charges for skip hire permits together with their enforcement vary regionally.
All permits are chargeable to the customer. Should the permit be declined by the local authority, this charge is non-refundable.
If you require a skip hire permit, please contact us to check eligibility.
Delivery on the day of hire will be between the hours of 7am and 5.30pm, with specific time periods available to be requested at the time of booking.

Whenever you hire a 10-yard skip, the delivery location needs to be considered. All skips can be delivered onto private land. However, we appreciate that space can be limited sometimes, so it’s not always possible.
When space is limited, sometimes a 10-yard skip cannot be placed on private land. In situations like these, a skip hire permit will need to be obtained. A skip hire permit allows you to place a skip on a public road, providing the local authority approves your permit.
If you need a hand obtaining a permit, one of our friendly customer service teams are more than happy to help. Additional charges may apply, but Reconomy will make sure you receive all the help you need.
