Brentford Skip Hire FAQs
What waste am I allowed to put in the skip?
You are allowed to fill up the skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly generated from house clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include timber, top soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you throw in your skip will depend on which size you have ordered, as there is a weight limit. For instance, if you are using a skip for heavy building waste including rubble or dirt, the largest size you can hire is the 8 cubic yard.
Some materials should not be disposed of in the skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.
Am I allowed to get rid of electronic products in my skip?
No, you can not throw old or broken electrical waste products in a skip. This can include items like computers, hobs, tumble dryers, refrigerators and monitors. These items can’t be disposed of in your skip because they can have hazardous materials and components.
Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot be sent to landfill and should be recycled.
How long does it take to get a skip in Brentford?
We can in most cases deliver skips to Brentford the next working day when an order is placed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking program offers you a number of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you would like the skip delivered ASAP or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Brentford?
The cost of hiring a skip in Brentford is determined by the size of skip you want. The lowest priced skip available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and clearances. If you want a bigger skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also increase if you need to have your skip on the road, because you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Do I need to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?
It is usually best if you can be there when anybody delivers anything to your property. That allows you to make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be located precisely where you want it.
The same thing goes for those who have a business. If 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 an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.
What happens to my waste once the skip is picked up?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The waste gets separated into a number of waste types, which includes stone, soil and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the waste will be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to minimising environmental impact by sending as little to landfill as possible!
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you offer?
If you have a business in Brentford and need to get rid of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container might be a perfect choice. Available in 20 to 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers that you can hire.
As the label suggests, these type of containers are rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, in contrast to standard skips, that are lifted using chains.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Brentford?
Since we provide a nationwide waste management service, we use a diverse network of verified businesses. These vary from small local skip hire firms to national waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to make sure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental principles.
Is it okay to pile up the waste in my skip?
Unfortunately not. You can only load your skip up to the level load line. Stacking waste up over this line would make it dangerous to transport, and you might be told to take away the extra waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, sheets of wood or other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.
What sizes do skips come in?
Skips are offered in a number of different sizes to match different waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small residential jobs.
The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a fantastic choice for garage clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.
Should you have a more substantial rubbish disposal job to take on, the builder’s skip could be the best choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label indicates, they are the most typical sizes ordered by builders for building waste, including soil and rubble. But they can equally well be hired for domestic rubbish such as broken furniture or kitchen cabinets.
We can also offer 10-16 cubic yard skips and commercial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For further information about the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
How long can I keep the skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to 14 days. In most cases, that gives you sufficient time to load the skip. However, if you need a little 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, our company is happy to arrange a collection. Just let us know once you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip at the earliest opportunity.
How large is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to dispose of some household waste, a mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to deal with many tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be positioned on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.
Although most commonly hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can even be used for smaller commercial jobs.
Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Brentford?
Preferably, you want to have the skip left on a hard surface area. When you are carrying out a domestic job, then the drive will be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, if neither is available, the street or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public land, you must have a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be positioned on the street, grass verge as well as other public property in Brentford. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be granted for you. An extra charge, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
Virtually all skip sizes can be supplied with a drop door, which makes them easy to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you require a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when making 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 materials into the skip, particularly with weighty materials, such as soil and rubble, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky objects, like furniture.
How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?
The builder’s skip is probably the most frequent skip that is ordered across the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builders skip is perfect for most building work, which is where the label stems from.
The 8 cubic yard builders skip is the largest size that can be used for hefty materials such as garden soil, concrete, stone and rubble.
