What permits do I need to hire a skip?

It’s a little-known fact that you need licenses to hire skips in the UK. If you have a skip on a public pavement or anywhere that isn’t privately owned such as a driveway, then a permit is required.

At KCM Waste Management, we are experts in skip hire and are an authorised contractor for skip hire within South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire. This means that we can take care of your permit with your local council if required.

We also offer a wide range of other services, predominately throughout the South Yorkshire area.

How long can I keep my skip for?

At KCM Waste Management we offer a variety of skip hire services to best suit your requirements. Our general skip hire service is 1 week as standard, however, upon booking your skip you can choose to extend it for a longer period at a small additional cost.

You may also opt for one of our alternative skip hire services such as exchange, wait and load, or tip and return that you can find more about here.

When will my bins be collected?

As part of our trade waste services, we offer bin hire to all trade and commercial clients throughout South Yorkshire. As part of this service, we collect your bins Monday to Saturday, whichever day you’d like.

What if I have more waste than my bin can hold?

If you have excess waste, please notify us before your collection dates so we can adjust our service accordingly and notify our drivers of the changes. If any additional charges incur our customer services team will give you the heads up.

How do I pay?

You can book your skip online through a secure payment portal, meaning faster and safer booking.

What is waste management?

Waste management is the precise name for the collection, transportation, disposal or recycling and monitoring of waste. Waste management encompasses management of all processes and resources for proper handling of waste materials, from maintenance of waste transport trucks and dumping facilities to compliance with health codes and environmental regulations.

Will I receive a receipt when my bin is collected?

You won’t get a receipt upon collection. However we will send you monthly invoices and send you a yearly duty of care.

How can waste be reduced?

Here’s a few ideas to build into your strategy:

For businesses – conduct regular waste audits, educate your team, stick up recycling signage, learn to repair rather than discard, understand the waste your business creates and the legalities behind it.

In the home – Ditch the plastic bags, make a meal plan, start composting, stop buying bottled water, reduce your packaging, go paperless with your bills.

What is a waste management plan?

A waste management plan is a written record of what must be done to achieve your waste goals. These goals could be to recycle more, to reduce waste or to manage construction waste safely and effectively. KCM can help you create your waste management plan and can execute the collection of the waste you produce.
