Bordon Skip Hire FAQs
Can I throw all kinds of rubbish in my skip?
A skip can be hired to dispose of many different types of waste. We are experienced in picking up and handling a multitude of items generated from building work, garden projects and property clearances. Some examples of permitted waste materials include things like:
- Tree trimmings
- Garden soil
- Concrete and bricks
- Bathroom sinks and toilets
- Cabinets and units
Many waste materials are generally accepted, therefore whether you want to throw out furniture, plastic materials, timber or textiles, we can usually take your waste away.
The quantity and waste types you throw in the skip will vary based on which size skip you hired. Skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So to be able to dispose of soil and concrete, as an example, the largest size you would be able to use is the 8 cubic yard skip.
Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?
There are a few materials you are not permitted to dump in the skip. The reason for this is that these items incorporate hazardous materials which could harm the environment. They can also be hazardous to human health, so they must be disposed of separately within UK laws.
Some examples of the goods that are restricted include:
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas canisters
- Computer screens
- Chemical substances
Do you deliver skips across Hampshire?
Along with delivering skips and containers to Bordon, we also deliver to other towns and villages within Hampshire. Through our network of regional and national skip companies, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Bordon, Horndean or Stockbridge, we have got it covered.
What happens to the rubbish in the skip?
Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into different waste materials, such as wood, metals, plastics, etc. This makes sure that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Will a Bordon skip hire company deliver my skip?
To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work together with a variety of local and national companies. This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to ensure we can supply customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.
Can I fill my skip above the top?
Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this makes it unsafe to transport, and you will probably have to remove any materials over the level load line. This also means you can not make use of sheets of timber, doors or any other object, since this will increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty of care to make sure that bins are not overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please be sure you select the correct sized skip to meet your needs and get in touch if you’re unsure which size is best. We will be pleased to help.
Do all skips have a drop door?
If you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop door. This is great for disposing of hefty building and demolition waste, as it can be walked in to the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also have a drop down door, however they are less common. Simply because these sizes are typically small enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our best to ensure a skip which has a drop door is supplied.
Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the road in Bordon?
In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you want the skip to be located on land outside of your business or home, you must get permission from your local authority in Bordon, which is known as a skip permit. If required, we would gladly organise this on your behalf, and so it’s one less thing to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the license, and you should be aware before placing your order that securing the licence can often take up to two working days.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
You can usually keep the skip for up to two weeks from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you have the choice of offering a preferred collection day when making your order.
Otherwise, simply tell us when you have finished loading up your skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the following working day.
It can take a little while longer to collect your skip over busy periods, however we will always endeavour to come as swiftly as possible.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Bordon?
Our aim is to deliver the lowest priced skip hire service in Bordon. The price you pay will, of course, depend on the size of skip that you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you want to have your skip located on the road or any other council property, you will also need to factor in the extra cost of a skip permit.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We can in most cases supply skips to Bordon the next working day when your order is confirmed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking program provides you with a number of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you want your skip to arrive ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is delivered?
It is always best if you can be in when anybody delivers anything to your house. That enables you to make sure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be positioned exactly where you need it.
The same thing goes for those who have a business. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.
Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.

What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?
The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container that can be used to transport huge volumes of waste materials. Mostly, these containers are hired for business uses. However, household clients can also order them. It is very important think about the space they occupy, since they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they can only be used for light-weight waste including paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of soil and concrete.
How much waste will a builders skip hold?
The phrase builder’s skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The label originates from the fact that these are the most typical sizes that are ordered by general builders and tradespeople.
These substantial skips are suited to an array of household and business jobs. These are the largest size skips which you can use for hefty builders waste such as dirt, stone and gravel.
How large is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact skip delivered by skip companies and is perfect for small DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some firms offer a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
No, you cannot put old electronic waste products in your skip. This includes items like computers, microwaves, tumble dryers, freezers and computer monitors. Electrical products can’t be discarded in a skip because they can include dangerous materials and components.
Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot be sent to landfill and should be recycled.
Other areas covered include Horndean, Stockbridge, Blackwater, Yateley, Romsey, Portsmouth, Southampton and Emsworth.
