About us

Peter and Claire started The Orange Skip Company back in 2005 with one lorry, 25 skips and the will to succeed !!!!  Today our family business has a fleet of skip lorries, 400 skips, 12 employees and a yard dog and cat to join the team.

Facts about our yard

We have used 7000+ tea bags in our yard this year
Average life span of a biscuit in the yard is about 4 seconds – favorites are tunnocks tea cake
We sort the equivalent of 320 wheelie bins of waste EVERY DAY
Strangest thing put in a skip … A 3m long sailing boat !
We have got through 5 kettles (see earlier fact )
We support 2 local charities and an under 8 football team and have raised nearly £3000 this year
We have 18 children between us and 3 grandchildren so all that remains to say is ‘Welcome to the family’.
