If you don’t have a driveway, garden or other private land at your home to place the skip on to you will need to apply for a council permit to have the skip placed on the roadside. The council charge for these permits and we are able to apply for your permit on your behalf. It normally takes between 24 and 48 hours to receive the permit, so please allow for this time when placing an order.
Your drive will need to 8 foot (2.4m) wide to allow our truck access. It will also need to be free from low hanging trees and power lines that may cause an obstruction.
Some driveways, particularly those which are block paved or have a soft tarmac surface, are susceptible to damage.
All skips can be paid for prior to hiring, by all major credit cards or cash. We are able to take payment over the phone or through our online booking system.
All skips should be filled no higher than the height of the sides and should be level loaded. If you overfill your skip you risk us not being able to remove it and incurring further costs to remove the extra waste. Overloaded skips are unsafe to load on our trucks so please ensure you keep to these guidelines for your safety, the safety of our drivers.

We have used Greenbox Recycling since they were founded and we wouldn’t use anybody else. They have always been extremely reliable & our skips have always been delivered promptly.
We have been using Green box for 4 years now and the service is always excellent, their quick turnaround on waste makes it easy for us to plan our daily business requirements. The staff whether it be in the office or the drivers are always friendly and efficient.
I have to say how impressed I have been with the excellent service I have received since working with Greenbox. Whenever I ask for skips to be delivered to sites urgently, they always do everything they can do to help, they are more personal and always go the extra mile to meet your deadlines.
