Many of us associate skip hire with building sites or construction projects, but skips have many useful domestic purposes too. If you’re planning a big clear out, moving house or redecorating, then hiring a skip can be a great way to manage your waste.

They’re also ideal if you’re planning an overhaul of your garden, especially if it’s on the larger side. You might think that hiring a skip isn’t worth it for garden or green waste, but they can make the whole process far easier and less stressful. With this in mind, see below for just three reasons why skip hire is a great choice for your garden waste.

It’s affordable

Skip hire is a lot more cost friendly than you might think, and it’s often much cheaper than hiring a man with a van to collect and dispose of your waste. Skip hire companies also offer a comprehensive service for the price; dropping the skip off at your location, collecting it when you’re done and disposing of the waste on your behalf.

Quick and convenient

Many gardens have a green recycling bin for their waste, but let’s face it, they’re not very big and could easily become full after just an hour or two. Most councils also only collect green waste every two weeks, so that’s a lot of waiting around if you have more than one bin’s worth of waste. By contrast, skip hire is quick and efficient, and allows you to clear all your garden waste in one go and conveniently store it all in one place.


Skip hire companies aim to recycle as much of the waste they collect as possible, and if they can’t, they’ll ensure that it’s disposed of in line with all environmental rules and regulations. Skip hire is far more eco-friendly than dumping your waste in a landfill or burning it in a garden fire (you should also be aware that you can be fined for burning waste if it’s not within council guidelines).
