The average cost of a 6 yard skip in London is £238. With a £700+ per month skip permit required in some areas, people are seeking cheaper and more environmentally friendly alternatives such as RubbishKing. We can take up to 2 skip loads for almost the same price as a single skip! WE load, WE sweep up and WE recycle your waste responsibly at authorised sites across London. Most waste is charged by volume but some heavy waste (i.e hardcore, soil, wet wood etc) is charged by weight (as detailed below).
How do I estimate my load?
As a rough guide, 1 Cubic yard is the same size as a domestic washing machine/tumble dryer (3ft X 3ft X 3ft).
So imagine your load as blocks, as best you can anyway.
Estimates will be confirmed once we are on site.
To cover extra processing costs, we charge extra for the following items:
- Parking & Parking Fines – As incurred
- Mattress – £30
- Computer Monitor/TV (CRT) – £10
- Domestic Fridge/Freezer – £60
- Commercial or American style Fridge/Freezer – £120
- Car Battery – £5
- Car Tyre – £10
Heavy loads like rubble, tiles, soil, bricks and wet wood are charged by weight regardless of volume.
Heavy waste is charged at 1 cubic yard per 100kg so 1200kg of waste will be charged as 12 cubic yards but may only take up 6 cubic yards of space.
As a rough guide, rubble, soil and concrete weigh around 250kg-500kg per cubic yard. A bag of rubble weighs 30kg – 50kg, so 25 bags of rubble weigh around 1,000kg.

- Oil, petrol or diesel
