Why use an NWH GROUP skip?

Not only is a hire skip the simplest and most effective way of storing waste created from your home improvement, DIY project or landscaping venture, but you also don’t have to worry about what you’ll do with the waste once you’re done.

We understand that disposing of household waste can be confusing for many, so we’ve made it as fast, cheap, and efficient as possible:

Simply load your skip as you work and once you’re finished, we’ll pick it up and responsibly dispose of any contained waste.

There’s no specific time frame you have to choose, so you can hire our skips for exactly as long as you need - a great value prospect for the majority of our customers’ requirements.

The whole process can be tailored to your needs, and our easy order process means you can have a local skip outside your door in as little as 24 hours from your order placement.

Rest assured that any recyclable materials we collect will be recycled, helping to reduce the environmental impact of your project.


Need a skip permit?

If you plan to leave your hire skip on a public road for the duration of the job, you will be required to possess a legitimate skip permit. But don’t let this put you off, as soon as you have obtained your permit we can still have your skip to you in 24 hours.

Our domestic wait and load services can also be a great and hassle-free alternative if council permits cannot be granted.
