Skip Hire

O’Donovan Waste Disposal Ltd is one of London’s leading independent waste recycling companies offering skip hire services throughout the London boroughs and the Home Counties as well as a nationwide service using our approved network of business partners.

Offering a full range of skips ranging from 4 cubic yards to the 40 cubic yard Roll on Roll off, our competitively priced skip hire service and professional knowledgeable staff are just some of the many reasons why our customers return to us time and time again to manage their recycling and waste disposal needs.

Providing skip hire to commercial industries and businesses as well as to private householders and knowing that O’Donovan Waste Disposal Ltd are a fully compliant respected industry expert that have the environment and health and safety as a major priority, gives our clients the peace of mind that their waste will be dealt with responsibly and efficiently. We also have a range of certified lifting skips as well as lockable skips available on request.

Skips can be placed off the road if there is access to the space or on the road subject to Local Authority Permission. We can, where possible arrange for a permit for you but some local Authorities will only deal directly with the customer. Local Authorities charge a permit/licence fee and will insist that the skip is covered and has lights on it if left overnight.

‘Wait and Load‘ service – The Driver will come to you with a skip, bin, rolonoff container or a caged vehicle and we wait while you load it.

Booking could not be easier – Call our Skip Hire Department on 0800 731 3332 where a member of our dedicated team is waiting to take your call. We can also supply covers and lights.

SKIP LICENCE AND PERMITS

The skip can be placed on road if the local council give authorisation in advance. In most areas, we as your skip hire company are responsible for getting skip licences, also sometimes called skip permits. However, in some boroughs you’ll need to do it yourself.

We can also offer a ‘Wait & Load’ service where you fill the skip within half an hour so Local Authority permission is not always needed

Restrictions

You can’t put a skip on the pavement. In most cases, you don’t need a skip licence if you’re putting the skip entirely on private land.

You may need to put safety lights and markings on or around the skip. This could include:

• traffic cones
• night-time safety lamps
• tarpaulin/plastic cover

Contact your local council to find exact rules for lights and markings in your area. Some councils will implement fines if you don’t put up the required safety lights and covers

• these fines can be up to £1,000. All the relevant contact information can be found at the link below.
