Skip hire is an environmentally friendly way of disposing of waste. It allows you to remove waste in bulk, without having to make numerous journeys to a depot.

At Chambers, we recycle up to 98% of the materials recovered from skips, making it our most sustainable way of removing waste.

Why not try a dumpy bag? These one-tonne, cost-effective containers are ideal for refurbishment or demolition projects and are easy to store.

Alternatively, we can obtain a permit through your local council and arrange for your skip to be placed on the road, for a small admin fee of £10.

If you order by 3pm, a skip can generally be delivered the next day if no road permit is required.

If in doubt, please contact us on 01483 504595.

Yes! Our skip hire services are still available for both domestic and business purposes throughout lockdown.

If your business generates a lot of waste, you might think you need to hire a number of skips to collect it all in. In this situation, our REL (Rear End Loader) and RORO (roll-on roll-off) container service offers a much more convenient and cost-effective solution.

Commercial and demolition waste can be disposed of in a skip, dumpy bag or grab lorry. If you have a waste carrier licence, you can tip on a COD basis at our Guildford depot or with an account at our Guildford or Aldershot depots.

Our waste disposal sites are the most competitively priced within the local area.

Waste and recycling sites must be fully permitted and subject to inspections by the Environment Agency and local council, ensuring that all waste is handled safely and within the law.

The most cost-effective option depends on the type of waste you wish to dispose of. Call 01483 504595 and one of our operators will be happy to discuss our budget-friendly solutions with you.

Hazardous waste must be managed and collected separately to non-hazardous materials and disposed of at a licensed waste disposal site like Chambers Group.

Chambers is licensed by the Environment Agency to recycle and process hazardous materials. Call us on 01483 504595 and we will be happy to discuss this with you.

The container you need depends on the type of waste you produce. Dry, mixed waste must be recycled in commercial recycling bins. If your business generates a large amount of food waste, separate bins must be used.

We have many container options to satisfy your waste disposal requirements, from a 240-litre bin to a grab truck. Please call Chambers to discuss bin options that are suitable for you.
