Barking Skip Hire FAQs
Is it ok to fill the skip above the level load line?
It is very important never to overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being asked to take out excess waste before it can be picked up. Whatever size you order, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, since moving an overloaded container will be unsafe, as objects could fall and result in personal injury or damage to other people.
To avoid this situation, please be sure to order a size suited to your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full and you have extra waste to dispose of, we are happy to organise an exchange.
Do you deliver skips across London?
We provide a nationwide skip hire and recycling service through a network of verified and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you want skip hire in Barking, Brentford, East London, Westminster or another site in London, we are able to assist.
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
If you are looking for a low cost skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to deal with numerous tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be situated on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most often hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can also be used for smaller commercial jobs.
Am I able to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
Unfortunately not, as electrical products like old TVs, cookers, printers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items have to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly way.
How many different skip sizes are available?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Barking, you will have numerous sizes to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard container, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for modest household clearances and DIY work.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold 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. They are the most frequent sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their big capacity also means they are perfect for house clearances involving large objects like furniture and beds.
We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for customers with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These sizes are only suitable for lightweight waste materials, so they can not be hired to dispose of soil or stone.
For further information about the different capacities available, such as proportions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
What size roll-on roll-off skips do you provide?
The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a large container that is used to dispose of large quantities of waste. These bins are primarily for business use but can be hired by domestic clients as well. Having said that, you need plenty of space as these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger when compared to the typical skip you will see on the roadside.
As a result of the size, roro skips can only be hired for lightweight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not suitable for disposing of soil and bricks.
How long does it take to get a skip in Barking?
We will ask you to confirm when you want your skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your booking prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver your skip, we endeavour to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery site, as unsuccessful deliveries will lead to a fee for the wasted journey.
Will the skip come with a drop down door?
Generally, most skips can be provided with a drop-down door, dependant upon skip size, availability and location. If you want a drop-down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip which has a drop door is mainly beneficial when you are choosing a big builder’s skip, as it lets you wheelbarrow your waste into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini skips, since they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What is a builder’s skip?
The name builders skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These will be the biggest containers that can be hired to discard substantial construction materials such as rock, concrete, gravel or garden soil.
The builders skip is perfect for a number of jobs. If you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing the shed, these big containers will often be the most cost-effective choice available.
Am I allowed to put all types of waste in my skip?
Before getting a skip, you must make sure that the type of waste you wish to dispose of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials need to be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you may discard in a skip include home goods like furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You can also use a skip to discard building and construction rubbish, including old bricks, dirt, rubble, metals and gravel.
Examples of forbidden items include things like electronic products, tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently need to be disposed of separately from general waste.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Barking?
To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work together with a wide range of local and national companies. This allows us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we can provide customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?
When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be in when it is delivered. You can then ensure that the lorry has total access and that the skip can be located precisely where you need it. This also is true if you have a skip delivered to business property, particularly if gates limit access.
However, when this is not possible, you do not need to be concerned. Just let us know when making your order, and we will take care of everything.
If I would like a skip on a road in Barking, will I need a permit?
This depends on where the skip is going to be located. You will only require a skip permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if your skip is on your private property, such as a drive or on your business premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Just tell us as part of the order process, and then we can make the required arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position the skip on your own property, you will save a few pounds.
What is the cost of skip hire in Barking?
This will depend on the skip size you need and whether you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the lowest priced option. The most costly and largest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in business settings.

How do you hire a skip in Barking?
Hiring a skip in Barking through us is incredibly simple. Decide on the skip size you need and enter a few details about when and where you need the skip delivered. You then pay for the skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and then prepare to have your skip delivered to you.
How long can I keep a skip for?
Normally, you can keep a skip for a maximum of two week. This means you don’t have to rush through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.
Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?
The waste in the skip will be taken to the local waste transfer station. Here the contents will be sorted by machinery and by hand into different waste materials, such as soil, cardboard, concrete and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to increase the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is always to maximise recycling and minimise the quantity of waste ending up in landfill.
