Bexhill Skip Hire FAQs

Is it ok to load the skip higher than the top?

It is vital to never overfill your skip. You must not pass the level load line indicated along the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it can be very unsafe to move. This means that when you overfill the skip, you may be asked to remove the surplus rubbish. However safe you feel the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This is dangerous and is prohibited.

How can I order a skip in Bexhill?

Ordering a skip in Bexhill through us is very straightforward. Decide on the skip size you require and input a handful of details about where and when you want the skip delivered. You can then pay for your skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and then prepare to have your skip delivered.

What things can I put in the skip?

Your skip can be hired to discard many different types of waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and handling lots of materials produced from construction work, garden landscaping and home clearances. Examples of permitted waste materials include:

  • Home furniture
  • Hedge cuttings
  • Garden soil
  • Bricks and rubble
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Cabinets and units

Many different materials will be accepted, therefore whether you want to dispose of metals, plastic materials, wood or textiles, we can usually take your waste away.

The volume and materials you discard in the skip will vary according to which size skip you have chosen. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So to be able to get rid of top soil and hardcore, as an example, the largest size container you would be allowed to hire would be the 8 yard builders skip.

Are there items that I can’t discard in the skip?

There are some materials you are not permitted to dispose of in the skip. The main reason for this is that these items incorporate hazardous components that may be harmful to the environment. They may also be hazardous to human health, so they must be discarded separately within UK law.

Some examples of the items which are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas canisters
  • PC monitors
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We can normally deliver skips to Bexhill the next working day when your order is made before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking platform offers you a number of delivery dates to select from. So whether you want a skip delivered ASAP or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.

Where do you take the waste from my skip?

Once you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste recycling facility either in or local to Bexhill where we segregate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

Do all skips have a drop door?

Nearly all skips can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them easy to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and then we can do our very best to accommodate.

Having a skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the bin, particularly with weighty materials, such as dirt and bricks, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky items, such as household furniture.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Bexhill?

This is determined by the skip size you want and whether you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the least expensive choice. The most expensive and biggest option is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in business settings.

Can I dispose of electronic products in my skip?

No, you cannot throw old or unwanted electrical waste items in your skip. This includes such things as printers, cookers, dishwashers, refrigerators and computer monitors. These items can’t be disposed of in the skip since they can have hazardous materials and components.

As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot be sent to landfill and should be reused or recycled.

What size skips do you offer?

Skips come in a selection of different sizes to match different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is good for small residential tasks.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold approximately 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yd is a good choice for shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more significant rubbish disposal task to deal with, a builder’s skip could be the most suitable choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label suggests, these represent the most typical sizes hired by builders for construction waste, such as soil and stone. However they can equally well be hired for domestic waste such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also deliver 10-16 cubic yard containers and industrial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For additional information about the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What is the size of a builders skip?

A builder’s skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. These will be the largest skips used to get rid of weighty building materials such as rock, bricks, rubble or dirt.

A builders skip is perfect for a wide array of jobs. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning out the loft space, these big skips are usually the most affordable solution available.

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

The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container that can be used to transport significant quantities of waste. In the majority of cases, these type of containers are hired for industrial uses. However, residential customers may also hire them. You will need to look at the area they will take up, because they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they should only be used for light-weight waste such as plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of garden soil and stone.

What size is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are ideal for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them ideal for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and broken toys to paving slabs and rubble. With a volume of approximately 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you needing to make numerous trips to the local recycling centre.

Do I need approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Bexhill?

In the vast majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you need the skip to be situated on land outside of your business or house, you will need to secure permission from the local council in Bexhill, which is called a skip permit. If required, we would gladly organise this for you, and so it’s one less thing to think about. The local authority does charge a fee for your road permit, plus you should know before placing your order that securing the permit will often take up to two working days.

Do I need to be at home when my skip is due to be delivered?

No, you do not have to be home when we are delivering the skip. Provided that we can gain access to where you need it positioned, we will take care of it all.

In the event you are not likely to be at home, simply provide us with any relevant delivery directions when placing your order. For example, you may need the skip to be located on a particular part of your drive. Or you might need to make sure the skip does not prevent entry to your garage.

No matter what the situation might be, simply let us know when you place your order, and we will make sure the directions are passed on to the lorry driver.
