Hiring skips for schools and universities

Regular readers of our skip hire blog will notice that we often talk about either domestic skip hire – i.e. skip hire for DIY and home renovations – or commercial skip hire in terms of construction sites, rental property refurbs and so on.

But we can cater to other types of institutions too, including hiring skips for schools and universities to support your regular waste management or one-off waste disposal needs.

This spans the full range of educational institutions:

  • Primary and secondary schools
  • Skip hire for colleges
  • University skip hire
  • Academies, free schools and others

Of course, schools, colleges and universities typically have substantial estates to maintain, and that can mean large quantities of waste, especially during refurbishment works, when replacing furniture and other fixtures and fittings, or simply clearing out old store rooms.

Flexible FE, HE and school skip hire

Like any of our domestic and commercial skip hire services, we aim to offer schools, further education and higher education institutions the flexibility you need to dispose of your waste cleanly and safely, within a budget.

We have a range of different skip sizes available to hire, from a few cubic yards of waste right up to container skips for large projects.

You can request a quote instantly on our website just by using the skip hire quote generator to enter a few details about what you need, or contact us to discuss the specifics and we will be happy to provide a bespoke quote over the phone or by email as required.

Safe and secure skip hire

We offer several ways to keep your skip safe and secure, including:

  • Delivery to private premises (i.e. not on the public road)
  • Lockable lidded skips to prevent tampering with waste
  • Clear guidance on any hazardous substances that cannot be skipped

Our team is always just a phone call away so if you ever need more advice on keeping your skip safe and secure, just let us know and we can help you decide how to proceed.

We understand that safety is paramount on educational premises, especially in primary and secondary schools where many pupils will be under the age of 16.

How to hire a skip on a school budget

Last but not least, there are a few ways you can make sure you hire a skip on a school budget without spending more than you planned.

First of all, at Forge Skip Hire we aim to offer the best prices on Leeds skip hire, and we believe you will find it difficult to get cheaper skip hire in the area.

You can save more by choosing a smaller skip – so it’s worth making an accurate estimate of how much waste you will need to dispose of, before the work actually begins.

Finally, get your skip delivered to private property and there’s no need to get a permit for roadside skip hire, saving you the admin fee that goes with applying for a roadside skip permit from Leeds City Council.
