Battle Skip Hire FAQs

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

If you manage a company in Battle and wish to dispose of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a perfect option. Available in 20 to 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers on the market.

As the label implies, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, unlike normal skips, which are lifted using chains.

How long can I hire a skip for?

You can usually keep a skip for up to a fortnight from the day that it is delivered. To ensure that the collection will be as convenient as possible, there is the option of giving a preferred collection date when you make your order.

Otherwise, simply let us know when you’ve finished with your skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in many cases, it will be the next working day.

It might take a little while longer to collect your skip during busy periods, however we will always endeavour to come as swiftly as possible.

Am I allowed to pile up the waste in my skip?

You must not fill the skip past the level load mark. If you fill it up above the tip of this mark, it means that the skip will not be safe to transport, and you can be asked to take off any extra waste prior to it being collected.

Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?

No, you can not throw old electrical waste items in a skip. This can include items like computers, hobs, dishwashers, refrigerators and monitors. These objects can’t be discarded in a skip since they can contain dangerous materials and components.

As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.

What is the process of ordering a skip in Battle?

Ordering a skip should not be hard. This is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, type in your delivery postcode to look at all the different skip sizes we can deliver to Battle. Select which size you wish to order, and confirm whether it will be dropped on private property. Enter your details and then make payment using our secure online payment platform.

As soon as your order is complete, we will send a confirmation email with all your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.

What will happen to the waste in my skip once I have finished?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste will get sorted into various waste streams, including wood, metals and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the waste will be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!

What things can I put in my skip?

You can fill the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly produced from home clearances, building work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include timber, dirt, bricks, garden trimmings, furniture, toys, cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.

What you throw in the skip depends on the size you have hired, as there is a maximum weight limit. For example, if you are using your skip for heavy building wastes including bricks or garden soil, the biggest size you would be able to hire is an 8 cubic yard.

Some materials can not be disposed of in your skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.

How big is a builders skip?

As the name implies, a builders skip is the size of skip most frequently used for construction projects. There are typically two sizes that may be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips which can be used to dispose of significant volumes of building and demolition materials, such as earth, concrete and bricks.

Although labelled a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for various other residential and industrial waste disposal jobs.

Do I need to be home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?

No, you don’t have to be at home when we are delivering your skip. Provided that we are able to access the place you need it located, we are able to take care of it all.

For those who are not going to be at home, simply let us have any relevant delivery instructions when placing your order. For instance, you might need the skip to be located on a particular side of the driveway. Alternatively, you may want to make sure the skip does not obstruct use of your garage.

No matter what the situation may be, provide the information when ordering, and then we will make sure the instructions are passed on to the lorry driver.

What sizes do skips come in?

Our company offers a complete selection of skip capacities to household and commercial customers throughout the UK. We have a skip to suit all requirements – from the humble 2 yard mini skip to the enormous 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.

Below are the various sizes you can choose from, with a rough idea of how much waste each skip can hold:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
  • 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
  • 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
  • 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
  • 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
  • 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
  • 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
  • 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Battle?

This depends on where the skip will be located. You will only need to have a skip permit when it is put on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit if your skip will be on your private property, such as a drive or inside your business premises.

Should you have to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us during the order process, and then we will make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate the skip on your own property, it will save you a few pounds.

Is it possible to have a skip which has a drop door?

Generally, the majority of skips can be provided with a hinged door, depending on size, availability and area. If you require a drop down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Having a skip that has a drop door is primarily useful when choosing a big builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow waste materials into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini skips, since they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

How much will skip hire in Battle cost?

The price of getting a skip in Battle will depend on the size of skip you need. The lowest priced skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and clearances. If you need a bigger skip, like an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also increase if you want to have a skip positioned on the road, as you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.

Do you deliver to other areas in East Sussex?

Of course, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can offer skips to locations throughout East Sussex, such as Battle, Hastings, Eastbourne and Polegate. So no matter where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ensure your skip will be provided on the day required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the very next day.

Although we can’t guarantee an exact delivery time, we will do our very best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You should ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will often incur a charge for the wasted trip.

How much waste can the mini skip hold?

When you have a small amount of waste to get rid of, the mini skip could be the ideal option. What size is described as a mini skip varies from company to company, based on what sizes they provide.

The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies opt to provide a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. Price is based on the specific size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are ideal for domestic tasks such as small DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you need it placed on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

Who will deliver my skip?
