Which should I choose? There have been some interesting developments in waste disposal recently – the Landfill tax set by HMRC has risen dramatically . This in turn has pushed up the price of skip hire, as skip hire companies now have to pay the increased charge. Some skip hire charges have increased by as much as 100% in just a few weeks. HMRC look set to keep increasing landfill tax, which in turn means that the cost of skip hire will keep increasing to accommodate this.
