Frequently Asked Questions

DJ Hanley’s Waste Removal and Skip Hire is a company that provides waste removal and skip hire services. Customers may have questions about the services we offer.

The answers to these frequently asked questions can be found below. Finally, if you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.

  • What are the sizes of skips available?

Here at Hanley’s, we have a vast selection of skip sizes to suit every job it is required for. Our small skips are a two cubic yard mini skip and a four cubic yard midi Skip. These do small clearouts at home and fit easily into smaller driveways.

The six cubic yard skip is a ‘builders skip’ and is perfect for DIY jobs and garden projects. The larger skips are the eight cubic yards, 12 cubic yards and 14 cubic yards. These skips are best for large home clearouts and large garden projects.

  • When can you deliver my skip?

You can order all skips for next-day delivery. We also can offer same-day delivery, which is subject to availability. Skip deliveries have a chosen delivery day/date, but we cannot guarantee times. However, if you require a morning/afternoon delivery, our drivers will try their best to accommodate this.

  • What areas do you cover for skip hire?

We cover the following areas in Wicklow and South Dublin for skip hire: Arklow, Rathdrum, Laragh, Avoca, Wicklow, Glenealy, Rathnew, Ashford, Newtownmountkennedy, Kilpedder, Newcastle, Kilcoole, Delgany, Greystones, Bray, Enniskerry, Kilmacanogue, Shankill, Loughlinstown, Stepaside, Cherrywood, Leopardstown, Carrickmines, Sandyford.

  • I ordered the wrong size skip or for the incorrect date. Can I change this?

Yes, skip sizes, and delivery dates can be changed once the driver has not left the depot with the skip delivery. You will need to call our office to make any changes necessary.

  • How long can I have the skip for?

All skips are on hire for three working days. Once you finish the skip, you must call our office to arrange collection. When your three working days have ended, our office will contact you to arrange collection if you have not already done so. If you need the skip for longer than three working days, just let our office know, and we can arrange this. This may be subject to a fee.

  • Do you hire skip bags?

Yes, we have skip bags for hire. Our skip bags are 1.25-tonne bags and great value at €100. Skip bags are ideal for small clearouts, especially for people with limited space outside their homes.

  • How high can I fill the skip?

All skips must be level loaded to avoid being overloaded. Overloaded skips cannot be collected for health and safety reasons. In addition, the skip will have to have some waste taken from it before we collect it.

  • How do I pay for the skip?

All skips are paid for in full when booking via a card payment over the phone. Also, our driver will take the skip payment at the delivery time via cash or card. Skips cannot be dropped unless payment is made on delivery.

  • How should I fill the skip?

It is best to put more oversized, heavier items at the bottom of the skip and any lighter, smaller items at the top. You must ensure the items on the skip are not too loose and will not fall off when collected.

  • Can I reorder a new skip if I have a full skip already?

Yes, we can do an exchange skip should you need a new skip and have a full one already. Our driver will drop a new skip and collect the full one simultaneously.

  • Does DJ Hanley’s have a waste permit for skip hire?

But of course, we have a full permit for waste collection and skip-hire. Our permit number is NWCPO – 19 – 12233 – 01. Furthermore, we recommend only using a service provider with a waste permit. For example, licenced companies will dispose of your waste correctly and recycle as much as possible.

  • Can I have a skip delivered and collected on the same day?

Yes, we can offer a delivery and collection on the same day—however, our team will have to take note at the time of booking to ensure availability. For example, we can arrange a morning delivery and an afternoon pickup.

  • Do you offer waste collection services?

Yes, we offer a waste collection service to the same areas we provide skip hire services. For a quote on your waste collection needs, call us on 01-2810416 to retrieve a quotation. Waste collections are subject to availability.

  • I plan on getting numerous skips; do I need to set up an account?

We don’t usually offer an account service to customers unless they are hiring many skips for the foreseeable future. However, if you require this kind of service, you can speak to a member of our team who can talk you through it.

  • Does Hanley’s skip hire recycle my waste?

To the best of our ability, we recycle all your waste. For instance, we recycle the components of a mattress. Anything that we can do to help the environment, we will do. This is why using DJ Hanley’s skip hire service is the best method for waste clearance.

  • How do I order a skip?

We can also help advise you on what skip size may suit you if you are unsure. You can also contact us via the contact us page, and a team member will contact you. Or email us at
