Skip Hire Melksham

The historic market town of Melksham in beautiful rural Wiltshire is thriving with a growing population and plenty of new development going on.

This is great news for the local economy, and also means that the residents and commercial enterprises of Melksham need help with removing all their waste and unwanted items – all sorts of things that can’t take the regular route to landfill, from broken furniture and scrap metal to construction site rubble.

The answer, of course, is to Skip It! As a leading independent waste collection and recycling company based in nearby Westbury, Skip It can deliver a skip of a size to accommodate all your rubbish and whisk it away again as soon as you’ve filled it.

Not only does this solve the problem of how to dispose of your rubbish in Melksham, but it will leave you with the “feel good” factor because all your unwanted waste and junk comes straight to our Waste Material Transfer Facility, where it is expertly sorted and graded before being sent for recycling. Only the barest minimum usually has to go to landfill. When you use the services of Skip It you are helping us to save the planet by recycling as much as possible, including plastic which is such a scourge in the oceans.

Using a skip in Melksham is a very cost-effective way of managing your waste if you’re having a domestic clear-out, doing a building project, pruning the garden or running a local business that generates large amounts of trash. We have skips of various sizes, from minis to fit into your driveway up to industrial sized behemoths that are 20 feet long and eight feet high. You only pay the appropriate fee for the size skip you hire, for as long as you keep it. There are no minimum terms applicable, so if you order a skip for a week and fill it in a day, you’ll only pay for the time up until we take it away.
