How Long Can Skips be Hired for in Eastbourne?

You can hire our skips for up to 2 weeks. We can adjust the collection date based on your needs. Either let us know at the time of hire or get back to us later once you have a date in mind. If you need a skip for longer than 2 weeks, inform us at the time of booking. Do remember that skips on council land only have a permit from 14 days up to a month, hence if you require such a skip for an extended period, we will need to apply for permit extensions and renewals a few days in advance.

Skip Weight Restrictions

For skip weights, we assume each cubic yard equals around 1 tonne of waste. Hence, a 3-yard skip can hold 3 tonnes; a 4-yard skip can hold 4 tonnes, and so on. While you can fill smaller and medium-size skips (2 – 8 yards) to their maximum capacity with bulky waste like rubble and dirt, it is advisable to fill larger skips with a combination of light and bulky waste due to the loading truck’s weight restrictions.

Rules about Skip Permits in Eastbourne

If you have to apply for a skip permit to place your skip on council property, you must abide by the following rules:
