Skip Hire in Ascot
If you’re looking to clear out a garden shed, redecorate a tired looking bathroom, or simply unclutter a messy children’s bedroom, a skip is a simple and cost-effective way to discard what is getting in your way. Our Ascot skip hire service delivers a very simple solution – we drop your skip off, you load it up, and we take it away.
When you have a modest amount of rubbish to throw away, the mini skip could be a perfect choice. In search of something slightly larger? Perhaps the 4 yard skip could be the answer. Or maybe you have got a large project on your hands, such as building an extension or throwing out some old bulky furniture. For this, we have a choice of big builders skips. However big or small your waste requirements may be, we will have the skip that is just right for the situation.
Whether it be to your home or your business, we will deliver a skip to wherever you need it in Ascot. Jobs can occur anyplace, and our skips will be there to meet your requirements.

Below are a few of the typical questions we get relating to our skip hire and recycling service.
Ascot Skip Hire FAQs
Can you deliver to other areas in Berkshire?
We provide a UK wide skip hire and recycling service by using a network of verified and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Ascot, Eton, Slough, Windsor or any other area in Berkshire, we are able to help.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
No, you don’t have to be home when we deliver your skip. So long as we are able to gain access to the place you need it delivered, we can take care of it all.
When you are not likely to be in, simply provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when booking the order. For example, you may prefer the skip to be located at a particular side of your property. Or you may want to ensure that the skip doesn’t block access to your garage.
Whatever the case might be, let us know when ordering, and then we will ensure your directions will be passed on to the lorry driver.
Where does my waste go once the skip is collected?
When you have finished with your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste recycling station in or local to Ascot where we will segregate the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
Am I able to dispose of all kinds of rubbish in the skip?
Your skip can be used to dispose of lots of different types of waste materials. We are used to picking up and handling a wide variety of items generated from construction work, garden projects and home clearances. Some examples of allowed waste products can include:
- Home furniture
- Garden trimmings
- Bathroom sinks and toilets
- Kitchen cabinets and units
The majority of waste materials will be accepted, so whether you need to get rid of metals, plastics, wood or unwanted toys, we can normally take your waste away.
The quantity and things you discard in the skip can vary depending on the size skip you chosen. Skips have a weight limit for safety purposes. So to be able to get rid of garden soil and rubble, for example, the biggest size container you would be allowed to use is the 8 yard skip.
Are there items which I can’t throw in the skip?
There are a few waste items you will not be allowed to put in the skip. The main reason for this is that some products include hazardous materials that may damage the environment. They may also be hazardous to human health, therefore they need to be discarded separately under UK legislation.
Some examples of the products which are restricted include:
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas canisters
- PC monitors
- Car tyres
- Chemical substances
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact bins are great for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and old toys to paving blocks and garden soil. Having a capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you needing to make several visits to the local recycling centre.
How can I hire a skip in Ascot?
Hiring a skip in Ascot with us is incredibly easy. Pick the skip size you want and enter a few details about where and when you need the skip delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and prepare to get your skip delivered to you.
Is it possible to get a skip that has a drop down door?
In general, almost all skips can be supplied with a hinged door, dependant upon skip size, availability and location. If you require a drop down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip which has a drop door is primarily useful if hiring a large builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow rubbish into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini and midi skips, as they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects must be kept separate from general waste materials to get recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electrical products like washing machines, monitors, toasters, computers and even hair straighteners.
Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the street in Ascot?
In most situations, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you would like your skip to be situated on land outside of your company or residence, you need to secure permission from the local council in Ascot, which is known as a skip permit. If required, we will gladly organise this for you, and so it’s one less issue to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the skip permit, plus you should be aware before ordering that obtaining the licence can often take up to two working days.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
Typically, you can have the skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you don’t need to rush through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is full before the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.
Can I fill my skip above the level load line?
It is important not to overload your skip, as you risk being asked to take off excess waste prior to it being collected. Regardless of what size you order, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, because moving an overloaded skip will be hazardous, as waste could drop and cause injuries or damage to other people.
To prevent this situation, please ensure you hire a size suited to your waste disposal needs. If the skip is full and you have additional waste to dispose of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you offer?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are substantial industrial size skips that are used mainly in the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for organisations that generate significant volumes of waste materials.
Who will deliver my skip?
We use a large network of both local and nationwide skip hire firms to supply skips to our clients in Ascot and the rest of the UK. Every one of our partner firms are approved and evaluated to make sure they match our expectations for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
What is a builders skip?
The term builders skip can mean two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The term originates from the fact that they are the most common sizes that are hired by general builders and tradespeople.
These big containers are great for a wide variety of residential and business jobs. They are the largest skips that you can use for weighty builders waste such as garden soil, stone and gravel.
How many different skip sizes are available?
This site offers a complete range of skip sizes to domestic and commercial clients all over the UK. We have a skip to suit all requirements – from the humble 2 yard mini skip to the huge 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Below are the different skip sizes available, with a rough idea of how much waste each size is capable of holding:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags

How much will skip hire in Ascot cost?
This is determined by the skip size you want and whether you need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the least expensive option. The most expensive and largest option is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in commercial settings.

How soon can you deliver a skip to Ascot?
Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it for you on a day that best suits you. We can typically give a following day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip placed on private property, since to be on public property (such as a street), you must gain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of numerous factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it to be delivered in a morning or afternoon slot.
