Skip Hire

About Skip Hire

At 1st Class Disposal, we offer an affordable skip hire service in your local area. We recognise that many of our Surrey and London customers prefer to do their own clearance work. This is where our skip hire packages come into their own. We deliver the right sized skip direct to your door and collect it again once you have completed your job. We cover Horley, Croydon, Smallfield, East Grinstead, Reigate, Redhill, Oxted, Caterham, Leatherhead, Banstead, Kingswood, Coulsdon, Chipstead, Dorking, Purley, and beyond.

What items can you not put in a skip?

At 1st Class Disposal, we trust our customers’ common sense when it comes to filling a skip. In most cases, it consists of general household or garden waste, occasionally with some leftover building materials from construction projects.

For the avoidance of doubt, here is a full list of items that can be put into one of our skips:

• Bricks, rubble, and wood
• Broken furniture
• Furnishings
• Non-electrical fittings
• Plastics
• Cardboard and packaging
• Solidified paints
• Uncontaminated soil

What is not allowed in a skip?

Of course, not all items can be placed in your skip. Various local and national environmental and safety regulations demand that certain items be restricted. At 1st Class Disposal, we always comply with such laws and guidelines.

This means the following items are not permitted in any of our skips:

• Gas cylinders
• Asbestos
• Solvents, fuel, liquids, and paint
• Medical waste
• Tyres*
• Plasterboard*
• Mattress (These will incur a small additional cost)

-Please contact us about these items as our Waste Clearance team may be able to assist.


Our wait and load skip hire service is ideal for people with limited space for a skip. In certain circumstances where delivery of a skip is not possible for your waste management needs, possibly due to lack of a sizeable area due to the skip size, we can offer a ‘Wait & Loadservice, where our friendly team will help load the skip of your chosen waste type/waste material, on the spot and remove it straight away to the recycling centre for instant waste removal.
This is ideal for commercial and domestic skip hire. Our company will also help with the skip permit requirements if needed. Please enquire regarding skip prices.

Paperwork And Permits for Skips In Surrey And London

When you take out a skip hire package, we need to know where your skip is to be placed. If you intend this to be on a public road, you will need permission from your local council. We will liaise with your council, apply for a permit, and complete the paperwork. The fee for your permit is not included with your skip hire and you will pay this directly to your local council.
