Three reasons to choose skip hire for garden waste

Summer is on its way and many people are preparing to relax on sunny days with a cold one in the garden … but if your garden is overgrown you’ll be considering what service to use to clear it up and make it a little tidier.

There are lots of services you can use and if you’d prefer not to do any physical labour then there are some great gardening services available. But if you are prepared to put in a little work and give your garden that personal touch then hiring a skip is the best waste removal solution.

Here are three reasons why skip hire is a great choice for getting rid of your garden waste.


Skip hire is often cheaper than hiring a man with a van to collect and dispose of your waste. Skip hire also gives you a comprehensive service for the price; dropping the skip off at your home, collecting it when you’re done and disposing of the waste for you. There’s not much else they could do for you, other than them clearing your garden and pouring you a cold drink to relax with.


Most people with gardens have a green recycling bin for their waste, but the problem is they’re not very big and could easily get full after a few hours of clearing. Most councils only collect green waste every two weeks which means a lot of waiting around if you have more than one bin’s worth of waste.

Skip hire is quick and efficient. It allows you to clear all your garden waste in one go conveniently (or as slow as you want) and then safely store it all in one place.

You can fill it in your own time, working as hard or as slow as you like, and when you fill your skip and finish your garden clearance, your skip will be promptly removed.


Skip hire companies aim to recycle as much of their waste as possible, and if they can’t, they’ll ensure that it’s disposed of in line with all environmental rules and regulations.

Hiring a skip is more eco-friendly than dumping your waste in a landfill or burning it in a garden fire. We ensure 95% of waste is diverted from landfill nationally. This is something we aim to maintain and improve.

In most situations more than 80% of waste can be recycled but when getting rid of garden waste it can be possible to recycle 100%.

There are many items that are not allowed in a skip but when gardening all the waste made CAN be skipped. The most common forms of waste created during a garden clean out are soil, wood, metal, plastics, domestic waste and rubble, and all these things are permitted in a skip.
