Small skip hire to suit all sizes of DIY and domestic jobs

J Dickinson & Sons skip

J Dickinson’s small skip hire means you don’t have to get a full-sized skip for domestic DIY jobs – unless you need one, of course.

We have small skip hire available starting from 2 cubic yards, a low-profile walk-in skip suitable for small amounts of waste and especially small amounts of soil or rubble from garden work.

Our walk-in skips are particularly good for domestic jobs and DIY, as they have a very low point of entry, making it easy to carry or wheel waste materials into the skip itself.

Alternatively, we have traditional bucket skips to hire starting from 4 cubic yards, and these feature a dropped end that creates a ramp – so again, you can wheel waste into the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Finally for maximum security, our 8 cubic yards lockable bucket skips give you large capacity for more extensive domestic DIY projects, with a lockable lid to keep the contents inside and prevent illegal dumping into your skip prior to collection.

All of this helps to make sure you have access to small skip hire when you’re planning smaller DIY projects and domestic refurbishments, so you can still benefit from our high standard of service and peace of mind over where your waste is going.

The right way to keep domestic waste out of landfill

At J Dickinson we always aim for a 100% reuse or recycle rate, so nothing goes to landfill – instead, recyclable materials are separated out and turned into new useful products, and non-recyclable waste can be used for energy generation.

We do more than most to reuse the materials we collect via domestic and industrial skip hire. Just take a look at our Aggregates page to see the various different materials, from sand and gravel, to rock salt, soil and compost, that we recover from skips and sell for reuse.

This helps to keep our skip hire prices down, as sending waste to landfill costs nearly £90 a tonne in tax – and using our reputable skip hire service means there’s no risk of fly tipping, which costs taxpayers £57 million a year in clean-up costs according to the BSIA, the trade association of the UK security industry.

It’s important to tackle this figure, which rose 13% in 2017-18, both to keep costs down and to keep domestic and commercial waste from being dumped either out in the countryside, or in abandoned and short-term rented warehouses for the landlord to deal with later.

Everyone can do their bit to dispose of domestic waste correctly – and our small skip hire sizes mean we can often place your skip on your property rather than at the roadside where other people might dump their rubbish in it.
