We were delivering a skip hire Birmingham job to a shoe shop near the Bullring Shopping Centre last week. We came to pick it up yesterday to find out that the skip was pretty much emptied. We made a few calls to check if they were finished with the skip – and they had. But they had filled the skip with old stock that had been taken by passers by, leaving a few old cardboard boxes and little else!!!

Birmingham – or the city of a thousand trades – has seen mass expansion in a relatively short space of time. In the Domesday Book it is described as a tiny village worth only 20 shillings. Now it is competing with Manchester to claim the title of the UK’s second biggest city.
The City of Birmingham has a population of 1,001,200. It forms part of the larger West Midlands conurbation, which has a population of 2,284,093 and includes several neighbouring towns and cities such as Solihull, Wolverhampton and the towns of the Black Country.
The heavy bomb damage suffered during the Blitz laid way for mass redevelopment and until recently the city boasted some extraordinary modern architecture (see The Bull Ring) alongside the city’s industrial maze of canals. This area has all been redeveloped again in recent years.
Birmingham council are one of a handful in the UK to not charge for skip hire permits. This means that if you need a skip and do not have a driveway, then a permit needs to be applied for from the local authority. Most councils charge anything up to £107 for a permit. Birmingham council charge nothing, so a big saving will be been made.
However, Birmingham council can be wary of having skips on the road in the city centre. In some parts, they will refuse to have skips on the highway in order to keep the city’s bustling traffic moving. In this case, a wait and load service is worth considering. This is where the skip is delivered and the driver waits for half an hour while the skip is filled by the customer. The main benefit of this is that there is no danger of other people throwing their waste in to your skip.
The size of Birmingham means that skip hire prices vary. The north is generally more expensive than the south. The areas surrounding Birmingham are also victims of this price increase due to the extra haulage involved. Redditch, Tamworth and Bromsgrove are subject to these charges.
Unlike Manchester and London, there is no threat of permit charges in Birmingham. This means that alongside the free permits, skip hire costs in Birmingham is among the lowest in the country. Good news for Brummies!
Topskips offers skips from 2 cubic yards to 40 cubic yards for the Birmingham area. Your waste is then taken to any of our three depots in Smethwick, Yardley and Bromsgrove. The depots then sort the waste into components. Hardcore, timber, glass, plastic and metal are separated and sent to recycling sites.
