Skips FAQ

If you’re filling a skip or skip bag outside private property you may need permission from your Local Authority. Potential reasons for this include if your skip or skip bag is being left on double yellow lines, paid parking spaces, a footpath or a loading bay. 

If you require a permit for your skip, or are unsure whether or not you need one, our team are on hand to help. If you have bought a skip bag, please be aware that permits and permissions are the purchaser’s own responsibility. Larger commercial skips may require additional clearance and protocol. Please contact our team on 01-829-8992 to find out more.

For skips and skip bags to be safely placed and/or collected, we will need vehicle access approximately 3m (10ft) in width. A full skip or bag will need 2.5m (8ft) of overhead clearance for lifting. Please make sure the collection site is clear of overhead wires, walls, fences, and trees. Any obstruction caused to lifting is the responsibility of the customer. Please note that we cannot deliver or collect skips over walls. Larger commercial skips may require additional clearance and protocol. Please contact our team on 01-829-8992 to find out more.

Generally speaking, we have very few problems with skip safety. Liability for the skip is with the person that hired the skip during the duration of the hire.

Skips containing light household material can be filled one foot above the level. Skips containing builder’s rubble such as soil, clay, bricks, stone or blocks can only be filled to a level load, this also includes all business skips, sizes 14cyd and above.

The materials accepted depend on the type of skip hired. As a general rule, all skips hold non-hazardous waste including paper products, cardboard, ceramics, household waste, mixed metals, mixed recyclables, pottery and wood - with varied amounts of soil, construction and demolition waste.

Large electrical items and hazardous materials (e.g., toxic waste, liquids, asbestos, chemicals, oils, batteries, florescent tubes, fridges, paints, gas bottles, medical waste or tyres) are not accepted. For more information, please speak with our team on 01-829-8992.

As a standard, skips are kept three days from the date of delivery, however we can arrange for it to be with you longer. Please call our team on 01-829-8992 to organise this.

For commercial clients, we also offer the option for a 24-hour turnaround on collection. Please call our team on 01-829-8992 to find out more.

The cost of the skip includes delivery, disposal and collection.

Your skip will be delivered to your door by the Panda team. Unless you specify a different collection date, we will remove it three days later. For commercial clients, we also offer on-site solutions and a 24/7 skip dispatch service with the option for a 24-hour turnaround on collection.
