Borehamwood Skip Hire FAQs
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 take it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets segregated into a range of waste streams, including stone, soil and cardboard. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to minimising environmental impact by sending as little to landfill as possible!
Will a skip hire company from Borehamwood deliver my skip?
A local skip firm will most likely deliver your skip in Borehamwood. We make use of a network of both local and nationwide companies to enable us to offer our service to customers throughout the whole of the UK. These firms are thoroughly vetted to guarantee they match the high expectations we require with regards to customer service, cost and environmental performance.
What size roll-on roll-off containers are available?
A roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a substantial container that is used to dispose of large amounts of waste. These bins are predominantly for commercial use but can be hired by domestic customers also. However, you will need plenty of room as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger when compared to the average skip you will likely see on the roadside.
As a result of the size, these containers should only be provided for light-weight materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not appropriate for getting rid of soil and bricks.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will make sure your skip will be delivered on the day required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the very next day.
Although we cannot guarantee an exact delivery time, we will do our very best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You have to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will often incur a charge for the wasted journey.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Borehamwood?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only require a permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit when your skip is on your private property, like a driveway or inside your business premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us while completing the order process, and then we will make the necessary arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position the skip on your own property, it will save you some pounds.
How can I hire a skip online?

How many different skip sizes are available?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Borehamwood, you have numerous sizes to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard container, sometimes called the mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is excellent for small domestic clearances and DIY jobs.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most common sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their large capacity also makes them ideal for household clear ups including bulky objects such as pieces of furniture and beds.
We can offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for people and businesses with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These containers are only appropriate for lightweight materials, so they can not be used to get rid of soil or rubble.
For additional information regarding the various skip sizes available, including proportions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
You can in most cases have a skip for as long as 2 weeks from your date of delivery. You can provide a preferred collection date when you place your order. Alternatively, you can tell us after you have finished with the skip, and then we will organise your collection. Generally, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer over hectic times.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Borehamwood?
To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Borehamwood, insert your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display the sizes we provide in your area and how much each option costs to hire. If the skip is going to be on the street or other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also have to be factored in.
Do I need to be home when the skip is delivered?
It is usually a good idea to be there when anybody delivers anything to your home. You can then ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, plus the skip can be located just where you need it.
The same applies for those who have a company. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.
However, should it be unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.
Is it ok to fill the skip above the level load mark?
You should not load your skip past the level load mark. If you load it over the tip of this mark, it means that your skip is not secure to transport, and you might be asked to remove the extra waste prior to it being collected.
How much waste can a mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small containers are ideal for small DIY jobs and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are great for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and broken toys to paving blocks and bricks. Having a total capacity of about 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip will save you having to make several journeys to the local recycling centre.
What can I put in my skip?
This is among the most popular questions people have about our skip hire service. What is important to remember is that you may fill your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous types of waste that can result from garden work, building work and home clearances.
Some of the most frequent items that we collect in skips include garden soil, timber, bush trimmings, kitchen cabinets, toilets, as well as other household products.
There are some waste materials that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. This can include any electrical products (fridges, televisions or cookers for example), tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all regarded as hazardous waste, and therefore disposing of them has to adhere to an entirely different procedure to ensure they don’t cause damage to the environment.
Is it possible to get a skip that has a drop door?
Using a skip with a drop down door can make filling waste into it much easier. This is especially the case with hefty waste like garden soil and rubble, which can then be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading up large bulky objects such as pieces of furniture easier as well.
The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, however this will sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when placing your order if a door is needed, and we will do our very best to supply this.
What is classed as a builders skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most often used for building projects. There are typically two different skip sizes that may be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips which can be used to dispose of significant volumes of building and demolition waste, such as dirt, rubble and bricks.
Although they are labelled a builders skip, these can be used for multiple other residential and industrial waste disposal jobs.
Will you deliver to other areas in Hertfordshire?
Of course, we can offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skip sizes to locations throughout Hertfordshire, such as Borehamwood, Harpenden, Elstree and Letchworth. So wherever you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
Am I able to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
No, you cannot dispose of old or unwanted electrical waste products in your skip. This includes things like printers, microwaves, dishwashers, fridges and television sets. Electric products can’t be disposed of in the skip since they can contain hazardous materials and components.
Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot go to landfill and should be recycled.
