Got a question?
When can I have my Skip?+—
Our delivery times are Monday to Friday 7:00 to 17:30 and Saturdays 7:00 to 12:00. We can arrange a specific drop off and collection time, so please let us know if you require this. We can usually offer a same day service, but would suggest you give us 24hours notice to ensure your requirements can be met.
Where can I place my Skip?+—
For householders, correct positioning of the skip is vital. A skip needs to allow for a 9ft entrance and is up to 12ft long. Most drives are suitable but thought should be taken to the quality of the surface; as lorries can be heavy. Tell us what you have. Also you may have exposed drain covers, low branches, or a restricted access.
If you are in any doubt about skip placement, please call one of our team for advice on 01737 842 311. We offer a grab-loader and muck-away service, where the lack of space or access may make it impractical for a skip.
Can I have a skip on the road, verge or pavement outside of my property?+—
Make sure you actually own the land – you might not own the grass verge in front of your house! Depending on where you live, we can provide a permit saving you the trouble:
- Don’t cover manholes or any other utility access.
- Make sure your skip is visible to motorists and pedestrians at all times. Use cones or other an safe method to draw attention to its location when its dark or poor visibility.
- Please don’t overfill your skip, its dangerous and could cause an issue when we collect the skip
- Keep all waste material inside the skip, protruding items may be dangerous for pedestrians or drivers.
- Be considerate to your neighbours, keep the pavement and their driveway access clear
What can I put in my Skip?+—
Most types of building waste can be taken including bricks, rubble, wood, glass, soils, plastics and so on.
Environmental legislation restricts these wastes within the skips: asbestos, computer monitors, televisions, aerosols, gas canisters, paint cans, fridges or freezers. Also, a fire must never be started in a skip. However, subject to prior notification we can deal with these waste types for you. Please contact us for further information. If you happen to have any of these things or materials, ask your skip hire company, they should be able to help or suggest someone who can.
What happens to my waste?+—
Franks (J & J Franks Limited) possess a valid Waste Carrier License and operate licensed waste facilities that are strictly monitored and controlled by the Environment Agency. The waste is transported to our own on-site Materials Recovery Facility (MRF), where it is screened to recover all recyclable materials. Every effort is made to avoid sending waste to landfill.

Environment Agency Waste Management Licence Number EAWML 83667 allows J & J Franks Ltd to recycle and process household and commercial waste and hazardous materials including asbestos and WEEE waste.
Make sure the skip hire company you choose is registered as Environment Agency approved.
How long do I have the skip for?+—
