B&B Skips Beccles…

If you are looking to re-vamp your home, a skip could come in extremely useful to manage your waste.

A great amount of destruction will be likely to take place; therefore the amount of waste generated will be high and in need of disposing of quickly.

Taking numerous trips to the local tip could take hours of time if bits and pieces need to be broken up to them fit in the car, whereas a skip is right on your doorstep.Recently I found myself in a very similar situation.

Hiring a skip can be a bit daunting when you’ve never done it before. But it doesn’t need to be.

Thankfully right on our doorsteps in the Norfolk / Suffolk area is B&B Skips.

The best news is, it couldn’t be easier to book your skip. With their online booking system you can pick the skip you would like in your own time without pressure.

So what can you put in your skip? 

B&B Skips process and recycle as much waste as they can, but some items require very specialist services to enable them to be disposed of.

This is what you can put in a skip:

  • General waste – the following waste types can be put in a general waste skip: bricks, tiles, concrete, ceramics, soil, clays, sub-soil, top-soil, hardcore mix (less than 10% tarmac), plastics, rubbish, wood, vegetation and paint tins if washed out.

These are some things you can’t throw in your skip:

  • Fridges
  • TV’s or monitors
  • Paints
  • Solvents
  • Liquids
  • Batteries
  • Asbestos
  • Florescent tubing
  • Oil or oil containers
  • Due to weight restrictions, heavy waste can not be placed in large quantities in the larger skips (12 yards and over).

If you need to dispose of any of the items listed above, then please call B&B before booking a skip and they can advise you on the best options.


How does the process work?

I booked our skip on a Monday and it was in my driveway by Tuesday morning at 8:15am. Now that’s a quick service. They are also able to offer same day delivery for those with urgent requirements.

You then have around ten days to fill your skip before it is collected again. This is the hard part, loading it up with all of your rubbish. In fact the process couldn’t be more easy!

What did I think of the service?…

From start to finish I was really impressed with the overall customer service, speed of delivery and friendliness of the delivery driver.

The skip was the perfect size for what we needed and we pretty much filled it full of left over materials from our house extension.

It was great to finally get all of the rubbish off our driveway and off the property.

The best part is knowing that as much of this as possible is going to be recycled.


These ease of booking and the locality of the company made the process as a first time skip hirer very simple indeed.

For anyone looking to hire a skip I would recommend B&B Skips any day!
