    Best to ring around for the best prices. You can get a 8yrd builders skip here for £165 (off road) - this is for hardcore and soil only. Domestic waste will be dearer.

    If the skip is on the raod, it will cost £30-40 extra.

    Good advice from Jit. Check what you can and can't put in it...some company's don't allow plaster board any more, even in a 'mixed skip'. Last one I used cost £180 inc vat in South Birmingham.

    8yd skips also come with doors, you will have to request one though otherwise it may not be provided.

    Always make sure you pay them the money or this may happen.

    Even at the recycling center they only allow a certain amount of plasterboard to be disposed of. the container is now fenced off, and one has to get approval from the adviser. Was nearly charged £24 (0-100kg) to dispose of 3 bags of plaster :(

    Unfortunately this won't help, as people will just end up putting it in normal waste, which will end up in landfill anyway.

    does anyone have a contact for the nsha? have been on their site, but cannot find a way to contact them. have had trouble with a company and need to report it, as they havent picked up the skip, despite saying they would do so that same day, and it's been nearly a week, they sent a smaller size that what we paid for, and they are also saying that they haven't taken payment for it, despite someone taking card details over the phone and the driver not dropping the skip off until he had been told payment had been made.

    I was looking for a skip bin hire after the garden and lawn mowing and maintenance because I had a huge amount of waste which can be carried only by a medium-size skip bin. So, I decided to hire a skip bin service providing company. I searched over the internet and found MelbourneSkips. They have a FREE quote service which makes us able to discuss our rubbish removal requirements to the MelbourneSkips representative on the phone call. He suggested me medium-size skip bin after a long discussion for the rubbish removal of my home.

    You can have a look at their this service online. Here is their website official Link:

    Very useful. I'm sure you'll pick up loads of work off here.

    No problem getting them in Lancashire. Thing with skips is to be really neat when you fill them :p. If you smash up anything that can be smashed, and neatly stack anything that can be neatly stacked you will get twice as much in as if you just chuck stuff in. Price skips are these days, it pays to take your time filling them carefully.
