index Skip Or Tip? Which Is The Best Option For You | Skip It

Waste Disposal Options

Whether you’ve decided to have a big home clear out or you’re moving house, it’s obvious that you’re going to come across a whole load of waste that you simply can’t keep, reuse or give to charity. When this is the case, there are two options. Hire a skip to put all of the waste and then have it taken away, or to fill your car and dispose of the waste yourself via the local skip. If you’re trying to decide what works best for you, we can help with our skip or tip guide!

Fly Tipping Offence


Though it is evidently cheaper to drive to the tip yourself, think about how many trips back and forth you’re going to have to make depending on how much waste you have. You’ll also save a huge amount of time by hiring out a skip, as it won’t be your responsibility to sort out recyclable items, or to load and unload your car, or to deposit it into the correct tips. Skips are a one off cost that include the hiring of the skip itself as well as the removal and depositing of the waste.


If you have a large amount of waste to remove, a skip is definitely going to be the more convenient option. Skip It will arrange an appropriate time to deliver the skip to you, as well as taking the skip away once you no longer need it. So, all you need to do, is fill it up with waste. Though driving may seem like the cheaper option, after multiple trips and potential mishaps in your car due to the waste, you can expect to be paying more, and doing more, than what a skip would cost!


Here at Skip It, we think recycling is extremely important, and with both a skip and tip, a lot of your waste will be getting recycled. The difference between a skip and a tip is the amount of effort you yourself put in to the recycling, should you choose to take your items to the tip yourself. Choosing a skip with Skip It means all you will need do yourself is throw in your waste, and we’ll take it from there. If you decide against a skip, it’s important you take into account what you can and cannot take to the tip, as well as finding out what’s in your tip that can be recycled.

Here at Skip It, we think the advantages of skips over tips speaks for itself. However, if you would like more information on hiring a skip, don’t hesitate to get in touch!
