Which areas does SCB Skip Hire operate in?

SCB Skip Hire provide affordable & reliable skip hire services in the following areas:

Can you help me choose the skip size I need?

Yes. It is possible to hire a skip in any size from 4 cubic yards to 40 cubic yards for domestic and commercial waste removal. For heavy waste, such as topsoil, concrete or muck away materials, our 8 cubic yard unit is the largest available. Dimensions for cheap skip hire units can be found on our Skip Hire page while skip prices are listed above. Contact us if you require any advice on choosing a suitable skip size.

Where will you leave my skip?

SCB Skip Hire, in an ideal situation, will position your skip within the boundaries of your Oxfordshire or Buckinghamshire property. This might be on a driveway or on a grass surface. If you need to hire a skip and can only position it on the roadside or in a parking bay, we can arrange the necessary permit through the areas’ local authority on your behalf.

How much waste can I load into a skip?

We manage to keep skip prices low by educating our customers on how to load them properly. This prevents us from having to refuse waste collections which are unsafe because of unstable loads. The general rule of thumb we work to at SCB Skip Hire is that your skip should never be loaded above the highest level on the side of your skip.

Which types of waste does your company accept?

Unlike other cheap skip hire companies, we never attempt to keep skip prices down by refusing certain types of waste. In fact, we’re one of the very few to accept hazardous waste (additional charges will apply).

A full list of accepted waste is provided for you in the list below:

  • Mixed Waste
  • General Domestic Waste
  • Soil
  • Construction and Demolition
  • Hazardous Waste
  • Dry Non-Hazardous Waste
  • Bulk Waste
  • Source Segregate

Can I position a skip on the roadside without the required permit?

No, but we are happy to liaise with local authorities in Bicester, Oxford, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire to gain the relevant permit approvals on your behalf.

How long can I hire a skip for?

The typical hire period for any skip is 2 weeks but if you have a little more work to do than some of our other customers, we’ll agree to a longer hire period when you place an order. There will be an extra charge but, unlike other skip hire companies, we never charge our Oxfordshire or Buckinghamshire customers more during the initial 2 week period.

Are SCB Skip Hire fully licensed and insured?

SCB skip hire are a fully licensed and insured company. We are registered waste carriers and we have our own licenced and permitted waste transfer station that we operate from.

Yes. SCB Skip Hire is a fully licensed, fully insured company and a registered waste carrier. We also operate from our own licensed and permitted waste transfer station. Whenever you use us for cheap skip hire, you’ll be dealing with an ethical and responsible company.

How do I pay for skip hire?

SCB Skip Hire accepts cash, BACS payment and card payments.

Are SCB Skip Hire committed to recycling?

Definitely! Even though we offer very competitive prices for our skip hire services, we are still completely committed to the environment and recycling as much as we possibly can. When we collect the waste from the skip hire collections we screen and process it. At least 90% of waste received from skip hire collections in Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire is screened and recycled.

We are passionate about our carbon footprint and strive to continuously protect the environment wherever we can.
