Your Borough Of Poole

Skip Operators Licence

Commercial / Residential Skip Hire

The skip service supplies skips to local businesses and private residents when needed. If you are unsure about the size of the skip we will be pleased to advise you.

Before booking a skip, it will help us if you can:

  • Estimate / visualise the actual amount of rubbish you want to discard – this should reflect the size of the skip that you order
  • Remember not to overload your skip, unfortunately we are unable to empty overloaded skips as they can damage our machinery and are dangerous whilst being transported

We also have advice on what to do with commercial waste.
