Addlestone Skip Hire FAQs
What waste materials can I put in a skip?
This is one of the most popular questions people have about our service. The main thing to consider is that you can fill your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are numerous kinds of waste that can result from garden work, construction work and house clearances.
Some of the most typical things that we collect in skips include garden soil, timber, hedge cuttings, cabinets, bathroom suites, and various household products.
However, there are some waste materials that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. This consists of any electronic goods (refrigerators, TVs or cookers for example), old car tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials, and so disposing of them must comply with a completely different process to make sure they do not result in damage to the environment.
How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?
The builder’s skip is probably the most popular skip ordered throughout the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builders skip is perfect for most building and demolition work, which is where the label stems from.
The 8 yd builders skip will be the biggest size that can be used for hefty waste matter like garden soil, concrete, rock and rubble.
Am I allowed to pile up waste in my skip?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this will make it unsafe to transport, and you will then have to empty any contents above the level load mark. This also means that you are unable to use sheets of timber, doors or some other item, as this will increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal responsibility to make sure that containers are not overfilled or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure to select the correct size of skip to meet your requirements and get in contact if you are not sure which size is best. We will be happy to help.
What will happen to the waste in my skip?
After you have finished with your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste transfer centre either in or local to Addlestone where we segregate the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
How can I hire a skip?
Hiring a skip in Addlestone with us is very straightforward. Pick the skip size you require and enter a couple of details about when and where you would like the skip to be delivered. You can then pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and schedule to get your skip delivered to you.
Am I able to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
Unfortunately not, as electronic items such as old televisions, cookers, laptops and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items have to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly manner.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Addlestone, you will have several sizes to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is excellent for small home clearances and DIY work.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most popular sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also means they are great for house clear ups involving large objects such as furniture and beds.
We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people with even larger waste disposal needs. These sizes are only appropriate for lightweight materials, so they can’t be used to dispose of garden soil or rubble.
To get more information regarding the different capacities available, including dimensions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
What size roll-on roll-off skips do you provide?
If you manage a company in Addlestone and wish to get rid of large amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a great choice. Available in 20 – 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal skips available.
As the label indicates, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, as opposed to conventional skips, which are picked up using chains.
Will you deliver to other areas in Surrey?
As well as delivering skips to Addlestone, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Surrey. Through our network of regional and national skip hire businesses, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to a house or business in Addlestone, Farnham or Godalming, we have got you covered.
How long will it take to get a skip in Addlestone?
When you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the next day. In some cases, we can even offer a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed during the online order process.
Do I have to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?
No, you do not have to be home when we are delivering the skip. Provided that we are able to access the place you want it delivered, we can take care of it all.
When you will not be in, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when booking your order. For example, you might need the skip to be positioned at a particular area of your property. Or you may want to ensure the skip doesn’t obstruct access to your garage.
No matter what the situation may be, let us know when ordering, and we will ensure your directions will be passed on to the delivery driver.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Addlestone?
The cost of getting a skip in Addlestone will depend on the size of skip you require. The lowest priced option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you want a larger sized skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also be more if you want to have your skip positioned on the road, as you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Will the skip be supplied with a drop down door?
The vast majority of skips can be delivered with a drop door, making them easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we can do our best to accommodate.
A skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the skip, especially with weighty materials, like dirt and gravel, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky items, like household furniture.
How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?
For those who have a small quantity of rubbish to throw out, a mini skip might be the perfect choice. What size is known as a mini skip varies from company to company, based on what sizes they supply.
2 cubic yards is considered the most common size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to have a 3 yard container as their smallest option. The price depends on the actual size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are fantastic for household jobs like modest DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you want it positioned on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
How long can I keep the skip for?
Our regular hire term is two weeks from the date of delivery. Having said that, at the time you book your skip, you can let us know a collection date that is best for you. Obviously, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if your skip is loaded earlier than anticipated, contact us, and we will get it picked up as quickly as possible.
We will usually be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. However, it is important to keep in mind that this may not be possible at busier periods. Once collected, the waste will be taken to a local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed and sorted.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Addlestone?
Normally, it is possible to have a skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to do this, you need to have consent from your local authority in Addlestone, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to organise this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council do charge a fee for this permit, and it may sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to approve this.
Will a skip hire company from Addlestone deliver my skip?
A local skip hire firm will likely deliver your skip in Addlestone. We employ a network of both regional and nationwide businesses to enable us to offer our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are vetted to make sure they fulfill the high standards we require with regards to service, cost and environmental performance.
