Enclosed Skips

Enclosed skips or a ‘skip with a lid’ from 8-12 yards.

Suitable for all types of projects, from demolition works to construction sites, enclosed skips can be used to collect a range of waste types from dry non-hazardous wastes to excavated soils.

Enclosed skips can be locked to prevent unwanted spillages or access, it's the perfect container for making sure those bulky items of waste are stored safely and responsibly.

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.

Please ensure the location of where the skip is to be placed is accessible for a skip lorry and clear from obstruction for both delivery and collection.

Some of the many benefits of hiring an enclosed skip from Reconomy include:

When the skip is closed, you prevent any unwanted access from third-parties or fly-tippers, who may dispose of incorrect or hazardous materials in your skip.

Enclosed skips ensure that any waste materials that retain a value are not at risk of theft.


Waste can be harmful to both the environment and the public, which means that hazardous types of waste need to be disposed of appropriately. Regulatory guidelines stipulate that hazardous materials should be separated from normal waste and this influences the enclosed skip hire solution you will need. Types of hazardous wastes include, but aren’t restricted to, these materials:

  • Sodium lamps and fluorescent tubes
  • Contaminated spills and rags
  • Aerosols
  • Paint in original containers
  • Lead acid batteries
  • Oil and fuel filters
