Brentwood Skip Hire FAQs
What skip sizes have a door?
Using a skip which has a drop down door will make loading waste into the skip a lot easier. This is particularly true with heavy waste materials such as soil and concrete, which can then be walked directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It will also make disposing of big bulky items such as household furniture a lot easier also.
Most skips can be provided with a drop door, but it will sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when placing your online order if a door is required, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.
If I want a skip on a road in Brentwood, will I need to get a permit?
If possible, you want to have the skip dropped on a hard surface. When you are doing a residential project, then a drive is going to be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, when neither is available, the road or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public property, you have got to have a permit from your local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be positioned on a road, grass verge or other public property in Brentwood. If this is required, we will request the license to be granted for you. An additional cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
What types of waste can I dispose of in a skip?
You are able to fill your skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly generated from home clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include timber, soil, bricks, garden trimmings, household furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you put in your skip will depend on which size you have hired, as there is a weight restriction. For example, when you will be using your skip for heavy building wastes such as concrete or dirt, the maximum size you can get is the 8 cubic yard.
Some materials can not be disposed of in the skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.
What is a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most frequently supplied for building work. There are usually two different skip sizes that can be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins that can be used to get rid of large volumes of building and demolition waste, such as soil, concrete and bricks.
Although they are branded a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for many other domestic and industrial waste disposal tasks.
What happens to the rubbish when the skip is picked up?
Whenever 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 rubbish gets segregated into various waste streams, including wood, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection can be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we can’t guarantee what time we will deliver, we try to provide a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery location, as unsuccessful deliveries can lead to a fee for a wasted trip.
Is it ok to pile up the waste in my skip?
It is very important never to overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being told to take out surplus waste prior to it being collected. Irrespective of what size you hire, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, because transporting an overloaded skip is hazardous, as objects could fall and result in injuries or damage to other people.
To prevent this situation, please make sure you order a skip size appropriate for your waste removal needs. If the skip is full but you have some more rubbish to get rid of, we are happy to provide an exchange.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
The roll-on roll-off skip, often referred to as a RORO, is a substantial container used to get rid of large quantities of waste. These bins are mainly for commercial use but can be used by household clients as well. Having said that, you need a good amount of space since these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger than the typical skip you will likely see on the side of the road.
As a result of the size, roro skips can only be hired for light materials like plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not suitable for getting rid of concrete and bricks.

All of our service providers are vetted to make sure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental requirements.
Am I allowed to throw electronic products in my skip?
No, you can not put old or broken electronic waste items in a skip. This includes things like printers, hobs, dishwashers, freezers and computer monitors. Electrical items can’t be discarded in a skip as they can include dangerous materials and components.
Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot be sent to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
Do you deliver skips across Essex?
Along with delivering skips to Brentwood, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Essex. With the help of a network of local and national waste management and recycling companies, we provide a totally nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering in Brentwood, Harlow or Great Dunmow, we have got it covered.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
When you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be at home when it is delivered. Then you can ensure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip is placed precisely where you want it. This also is true for those who have a skip delivered to company property, especially when gates restrict access.
Having said that, when this is not achievable, you don’t need to be concerned. Simply let us know when placing your booking, and we will take care of everything.
How big is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a low cost skip to dispose of some domestic waste, a mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to handle many jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be positioned on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most often hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can also be used for smaller commercial jobs.
