Bexley Skip Hire FAQs
How big is a builders skip?
As the name indicates, a builders skip means the size of skip most often supplied for construction projects. There are generally two skip sizes that may be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to get rid of large volumes of building and demolition waste, including dirt, concrete and stone.
Even though they are branded a builders skip, these can of course be used for various other domestic and business waste disposal tasks.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve requested. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your booking prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will deliver, we strive to provide an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery area, as failed deliveries can result in a charge for a wasted journey.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Bexley?
We utilise a large network of both local and nationwide skip hire businesses to supply skips to our customers in Bexley and the rest of the country. All of our partner companies are approved and tested to guarantee they match our standards for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.
Will my skip come with a drop down door?
Nearly all skip sizes can be provided with a drop down door, which makes them easy to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we can do our very best to accommodate.
A skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the skip, especially with heavy materials, such as garden soil and concrete, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky objects, such as pieces of furniture.
What waste materials am I allowed to put in a skip?
You can use a skip to dispose of many different waste types. We are experienced in picking up and handling a multitude of items produced from construction jobs, garden projects and house clean-ups. Examples of allowed waste products include things like:
- Pieces of furniture
- Tree cuttings
- Garden soil
- Concrete and bricks
- Bathroom sinks and toilets
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Many waste materials are generally allowed, therefore whether you need to get rid of metals, plastics, wood or old toys, we can normally take your rubbish away.
The quantity and waste types you put in the skip can vary based on which size skip you chosen. All skips do have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you want to dispose of garden soil and hardcore, as an example, the largest size container you will be permitted to hire will be the 8 yard skip.
Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?
There are several waste items which you are not allowed to put in your skip. The reason for this is that these products incorporate hazardous components which could be harmful to the environment. They can even be damaging to human health, and so they have to be discarded separately under UK regulations.
Some examples of the items that are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas cylinders
- Computer screens
- Battery packs
- Car tyres
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
You can generally keep your skip for up to two weeks from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure the collection will be as convenient as possible, you have the option of offering a preferred collection day when you place your order.
Alternatively, simply let us know when you’ve finished loading up the skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the majority of circumstances, it will be the next working day.
It could take a little longer to collect your skip over busy times, but we will always endeavour to be there as swiftly as possible.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container used to get rid of huge amounts of waste. In the majority of cases, these type of containers are used for business uses. However, residential customers can also hire them. You will need to take into account the area they take up, as they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they can only be used for lightweight waste such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of garden soil and hardcore.
How much waste will a mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers are perfect for small DIY work and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and old toys to paving slabs and garden soil. With a capacity of approximately 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip will save you needing to make numerous visits to the local recycling centre.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Bexley?
This depends upon where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if the skip is on your private property, such as a drive or inside your business premises.
If you need to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Just let us know as part of the order process, so we can make the necessary arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position your skip on private land, you will save some money.
What is the cost of skip hire in Bexley?
To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Bexley, insert your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display which sizes we offer in your area and how much each size will cost to order. If your skip will be on the road or any other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also have to be factored in.
How many different skip sizes are available?
Skips come in a wide range of sizes to suit different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is great for small household jobs.
Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold roughly 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yd is an excellent choice for garden shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
Should you have a more significant waste disposal job to take on, a builder’s skip might be the best option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name suggests, they are the most popular sizes ordered by builders for building waste, such as clay and rubble. But they can equally well be used for household waste such as broken furniture or kitchen units.
We can also offer 10-16 cubic yard bins and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more information about the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
Is it okay to stack up the waste in my skip?
Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this makes it hazardous to move, and you will have to remove any materials above the level load mark. This means you are unable to make use of sheets of timber, doors or another object, since this will artificially increase the size of the skip. We have a legal duty of care to make sure that skips aren’t overfilled or overweight before transporting them.
Please be sure you select the correct sized skip to meet your needs and get in contact if you are unsure which size you require. We would be glad to help.

Where does my rubbish be taken to when the skip is picked up?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The waste will get sorted into several different waste types, including wood, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste is recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Do I have to be home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t need to be home when your skip is delivered, however it can help. Being there whenever the skip is delivered means you can make sure the driver can be given full access and that your skip will be placed exactly where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is delivered to a company premises, we will appreciate your help at the time of delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
However, when you can’t be around during the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you place the order, and then we will organise things from there.
Am I allowed to throw electronic products in my skip?
No, you cannot throw old or broken electronic waste items in your skip. This includes such things as computers, microwaves, washing machines, fridges and monitors. Electrical items can’t be discarded in your skip since they can have hazardous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.
