Blackheath Skip Hire FAQs
How do you hire a skip online?
This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you wish to hire. Let us know if the skip will be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on public property (like the street). After that, choose the date you want your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order details and make payment using our secure online payment system. All done! We will deliver your skip to Blackheath on the date you have selected.
Do you deliver skips across London?
We provide a nationwide skip hire and recycling service using a network of verified and fully licensed local partners. So whether you would like skip hire in Blackheath, Ealing, Balham, Forest Hill or any other site in London, we can assist.
Is it ok 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 may be asked to remove any rubbish above the level load line. This means that you are unable to use sheets of wood, doors or another object, as this will increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal obligation to ensure that skips are not overfilled or overweight before moving them.
Please be sure to select the appropriate sized skip for your requirements and get in touch if you are not sure which size you require. We would be glad to help.
Where will you take the rubbish from my skip?
The waste in the skip will be taken to a local waste transfer facility. Here the waste will be segregated by machines and also by hand into various waste materials, such as metal, plastics, stone and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to increase the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is always to maximise recycling and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to two weeks. Usually, that provides you with sufficient time to load the skip. However, if you do need more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, in the event you finish with your skip earlier, we are happy to arrange your pick up. Just contact us when you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip at the earliest opportunity.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
The majority of containers can be supplied with a drop door, making them easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the bin, particularly with heavy materials, such as garden soil and rubble, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load large and bulky items, like household furniture.
How much waste will fit in the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact bins are ideal for small DIY jobs and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them great for driveways.
They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and broken toys to paving slabs and rubble. With a capacity of approximately 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip can save you having to make multiple journeys to your local recycling centre.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Blackheath?
The price of getting a skip in Blackheath is determined by the size of skip you need. The cheapest skip available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you want a bigger skip, such as an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also be more if you want to have the skip on the highway, as you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Do I have to be there whenever the skip is delivered?
It is usually best if you can be there when anybody delivers anything to your property. That enables you to ensure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be dropped precisely where you need it.
The same goes if you have a business. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.
Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
If you manage a business in Blackheath and wish to get rid of substantial amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a perfect option. Available in 20 to 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers that are available.
As the name implies, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, in contrast to standard skips, that are picked up by using chains.
Do I need approval to get a skip delivered on the road in Blackheath?
Usually, it will be possible to get your skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to do this, you will need to have consent from the local council in Blackheath, which is called a skip permit. We are able to arrange this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The council will charge a fee for your permit, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.
How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?
The phrase builder’s skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yd skip. The label comes from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes that are used by general builders and tradespeople.
These substantial containers are fantastic for an array of residential and commercial projects. They are the largest skip sizes that you can use for weighty builders waste including top soil, rubble and gravel.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ensure your skip will be delivered when requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the following day.
Although we can’t promise a precise delivery time, we will always do our best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You should ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will in most cases incur a fee for the wasted journey.
Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
I’m afraid not, since electronic products such as old televisions, fridges, computers and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects have to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly fashion.
What skip sizes do you provide?
We can provide a full range of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip perfect for small DIY tasks and house clearances. A popular choice for bigger projects, refurbishments and building work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Blackheath firms which produce a big amount of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Will a Blackheath skip hire company deliver my skip?
We use a large network of both regional and national skip hire firms to supply skips to our customers in Blackheath and the rest of the country. Each of our partner skip companies are verified and tested to make certain they match our standards for price, service, recycling and reliability.
What kinds of waste can I get rid of in a skip?
You can fill up your skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly generated from house clearances, building work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include timber, dirt, concrete, garden trimmings, furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you put in your skip would depend on which size you have hired, because there is a weight limit. For instance, when you are using your skip for heavy building wastes including rubble or dirt, the biggest size you can hire is an 8 cubic yard.
Some materials can not be disposed of in a skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
