Norris are leaders in affordable and professional skip hire services in the Greenwich, Orpington, Bromley and South East London areas. With trained drivers, decades of experience and skips available in all sizes, you can be sure that our service is first-rate, and with prices that won’t make you think twice. Your waste is in the right hands, thanks to our 99%+ recycling rate.
Whether a substantial construction project, building waste or a garden clear out, we can make your problems go away with our same day skip hire service. At Norris, you will be treated fairly, with no lengthy waits for deliveries, exchanges, and collections; in fact, we have a ‘within 4 hours’ policy guaranteeing prompt exchanges. We offer our service at your convenience, not ours, and that’s a promise.
You may also be concerned about where your waste is going, this is an area in which we are consistently amongst the best. Unlike some other skip hire companies, we take extra measures to make sure our recycling rates are as high as possible, and it shows, as we often go whole weeks without needing to visit the landfill. All of that data and reporting is tracked, processed and given to you, our valued customer, so no more vague figures and inaccurate facts. We compile site-specific full waste reports at an average recycling rate of 99%. Norris also puts all waste through a rigorous and advanced processing and separation process at our Materials Recovery Facilities in Orpington and Greenwich to reduce the consumption of raw materials and promote resource efficient operations.
Business customers are guaranteed the provision of detailed electronic Waste Transfer Notes, signed and printed with the correct SIC code, European Waste Catalogue code and description, container description and the Waste Hierarchy declaration. When required, Norris can arrange a special road permit, and set up lights and cones that allow you to temporarily place a skip outside of your premises – this is standard procedure when leaving a skip on a public highway.
Expert Waste Management Solutions
Your business has a professional image to maintain. Nobody wants untidy and rusty skips sitting on their site, especially not in view of customers or visitors. At Norris, we won’t blight your premises with poorly maintained skips, instead, we’ll deliver an immaculate piece of equipment that will solve your waste problems and uphold your professional image. Our major customers are very pleased with how well we support their challenges and objectives through our quality service and equipment.
Norris drivers are in charge of personal interactions with our customers, so we make the point of training them to be knowledgeable, polite and helpful. We don’t employ drivers who simply deliver skips; we send you licensed industry professionals, trained in PPE, environmental policies and site health and safety. You’ll recognise our driver’s thanks to their smart uniforms too, and in the professional way they manage their work. Norris always practices a responsible attitude towards environment protection, as a company and through our dedicated employees. All skip vehicles at Norris meet the highest safety and emission standards.
The importance of operating a safe fleet of trucks is a responsibility that we take very seriously. Norris trucks are fitted with the following safety equipment:
- Satellite trackers to give accurate data and control over the vehicles’ movements, speed and location
- External surround cameras and in-cab cameras
- Audible warning systems for when turning and reversing
- Vison panels in the passenger doors for increased visibility of cyclists and pedestrians
- Auto-sheeting systems for covering the full skips without the need for the driver to climb up on the vehicle
Achieving Industry Standards
With a large percentage of our service area being in Greater London and the Home Counties, we operate within the London Low Emission Zone or “LEZ”. Covering broadly within the M25, the LEZ is a traffic pollution-charging scheme, with the aim of reducing the exhaust gas emissions of diesel-powered commercial vehicles in London. Our vehicles all meet the European emissions legislation standards that ensure environmentally cleaner engines by reducing the levels of harmful vehicle emissions such as nitrogen oxide (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO), hydrocarbons (THC and NMHC) and particulate matter (PM). As a standard part of our recruitment process, upon employment at Norris, all new HGV drivers have to complete a full driver induction programme, a Safer Urban Driving practical training course and complete in-house health and safety training. Once employed, there is then an on-going programme in place for the constant development and maintenance of the highest driving standards.

Providing a commercial skip hire service to businesses of all sizes, from local to international, means that we are versatile. We understand that sites often need different skips, more reporting data and transport delivery staff with site training. Norris can supply waste management advice, compliance and guidance that exceeds the standard. We have weight certified skips for crane lifting, enclosed lockable skips and even Roll on Roll off containers. Sites often face critical time pressures, so you can rest easy knowing that our deliveries are prompt and organised for efficient turnarounds.
It’s sometimes difficult to decide which skip you need. We make this process a lot easier by explaining the available space inside our skips in visual terms, with our Skip Chooser system. We work on a sliding scale from domestic tidy up and junk clearance to big projects and bulky clearances. With six different skip sizes and types, we have made the process of choosing the right skip for you as easy as possible. If you’re still not sure which skip is right for you, one of our dedicated team will be happy to advise you For any junk or waste, you have that needs taking away, we have a solution. If you feel that your waste might be a little different to the norm, perhaps it’s hazardous or you want to put specific appliances in the skips, call us and our expert team will be happy to provide you a professional skip hire solution.
