FAQ's

We hire skips in Dublin and Galway.  Please click here to see if your house or business is covered.

We can provide you with skips that range from 4 cubic yard to 14 cubic yard (depending on your location) – perfect for most mid- to large-sized jobs.  The larger the skip, the higher the price to hire.

You should book your skip, online or over the phone, as quickly as possible.  Online bookings require 48 hours to deliver – so if you need a skip on Wednesday you need to order it on Monday. But if you need it quicker, then just call us on 1800 336699 and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.

Hire period is for up to 5 days (unless otherwise agreed). If you require the skip for longer extra charges may apply. Please contact our office at skip@citybin.com or on 1800 336699 for more information.

Extra charges may incur if you require the skip for longer. Please contact our customer centre on 1800 336699 for more information.

Holding on to the skip for an extra day can mean that another customer is delayed receiving a skip.  The charge to hold onto the skip, longer than the agreed hire, is an additional €15.00 per day.

We begin our skip deliveries at 6am. However, due to the nature of our business, it is difficult for us to give an exact time of delivery. If you need a skip for a certain time we will do our best to meet your needs.

Due to the nature of our business, it is difficult for us to give an exact time for skips. We try to commit to either morning (from 6am) or afternoon (from 12noon) times. If you need a skip for a certain time, just get in touch and we will do our best to meet your needs.

Of course. Your skip will be dropped in the morning and we’ll collect it by lunchtime.

If you are placing the skip on a public road, parking bay, grass verge, or public walkway you may require a local authority permit in advance. Please contact your local authority to check (click here for contact details). If putting the skip in your driveway please have 10-foot clearance for our truck to enter, unfortunately, if you do not have this clearance, we are unable to drop the skip over walls or fences.

But please call us on 1800 336699 if you need to check if an item is suitable.

Only fill your skip up to the height of its sides. Loads must be secure and safe with no loose items. You are legally responsible for the contents of the skip you hire.

An overloaded skip is a hazard. The lorry may struggle to lift the skip, and your overfilled waste can be dangerous to transport. If your skip is overloaded, the driver may not take the risk to lift it.  You might be asked to remove the extra waste (delays can lead to extra charges).

Our skip waste is brought only to EPA–licensed facilities. There, it is sorted and processed so your recycling is maximised. Typically, none of your waste will end up in landfill!

Sure.  All online prices include VAT (at 13.5%).

Our drivers don’t carry cash, all skips are paid for by credit/debit card when you book.
