Domestic Skip Hire in Portsmouth

Hiring a skip for your DIY projects is a huge time saver. Whatever project you’re undertaking, it’s likely to generate more waste than your typical wheelie bin is able to store. The convenience of hiring a household skip means that you won’t need to worry about overflowing your wheelie bins with rubbish, upsetting the neighbours or taking several expensive and time-consuming round trips to the tip. 

Furthermore, when you hire a skip with Fast Skips, we guarantee up to 98% of the waste you throw into your skip will be recycled into new materials or reused and will not end up in landfill or an incinerator.

Our domestic skip hire services in Portsmouth includes varying skip sizes to suit the type of work you’re doing – from a 4-Yard Midi Skip for your annual garden tidy-up, through to a larger 8-Yard Builders Skip suitable for the likes of extension projects or kitchen remodels. 

Commercial Skip Hire in Portsmouth

We’ve been providing commercial skip hire since 1982, so whatever work your business is undertaking in Portsmouth, our commercial skip hire service is flexible enough to suit your needs. 

As commercial projects usually generate more waste, our commercial skips come in a range of larger sizes. These skips are unavailable for domestic as they are generally too large for a driveway, are designed for much larger volumes of waste, and in some cases are designed for specific non-mixed waste types.

Our commercial skip hire team is available to discuss the arrangement of road permits, transfer notes, destruction certification or hazardous waste documentation to ensure your business is compliant with any legal obligations.

Additional Considerations

Access Routes

When hiring a skip in Portsmouth you should also consider access routes for drop-off and collection. In most cases, skip hire delivery will require a 9ft entrance space and enough space on the road leading up to the delivery point for our lorries to manoeuvre. 


All three of our commonly hired domestic skips are perfectly sized to fit neatly on most household driveways or gardens, meaning they’re out of the way and won’t block roads or public access. If you don’t have a driveway, they’re also small enough to take up around the same amount of road-space as a parked car, and we’ll work with you to find the best place for your hired skip to be situated.

Permit Requirements

If you need to put the skip on a local highway then a permit will be required from Hampshire County Council.  As an authorised contractor for skip hire in Portsmouth, we will organise Council permits for you as part of our skip hire service.

Skip Hire: What Waste Can You Put In A Skip?

With a skip from Fast Skips, the only waste you cannot dispose of is medical or human waste. However, there are other types of waste you should not put in the skip without letting us know about in advance because we have to deal with certain types of waste with different methods. 

If you plan on to disposing of the following items in your hired skip then please let us know in advance so we can plan for its disposal and make you aware of any additional cost in advance. The items we need to know about include:

  • Individual batteries or battery packs
  • Gas tanks or cylinders
  • Paint
  • Electrical items
  • Household appliances
  • Glues and Solvents
  • Fluorescent light bulbs
  • Medical or human waste
  • Tyres

Our Skip Hire FAQ contains all the information you need in regards to skip hire but the main rules to consider are:

  • Don’t fill your skip beyond capacity
  • Don’t burn waste, or set fires in skips
  • Don’t mix hazardous waste with general or recyclable waste
