Brighton and Hove Skip Hire FAQs

Is it okay to load the skip higher than the level load line?

I’m afraid not. You must only fill the skip up to the level load line. Piling rubbish up over this line will make it dangerous to move, and you could be told to remove the extra waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes using doors, or any other objects to increase the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip dangerous and it could also make it overweight.

Can you deliver skips across East Sussex?

Absolutely. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we can deliver skips to both domestic and commercial customers throughout East Sussex and elsewhere within the UK.

What size is the mini skip?

If you have a small amount of waste to get rid of, a mini skip might be the ideal choice. What size is identified as a mini skip differs from company to company, based on what sizes they provide.

The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies choose to provide a 3 cubic yard container as their smallest option. The price is based on the actual size you order, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are best for household work like modest DIY projects and shed clean ups. If you would like it put on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets sorted into a range of waste streams, which includes timber, metals and paper. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection will be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

A roll-on roll-off skip, often referred to as a RORO, is a large container used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These bins are primarily for industrial use but can be used by household customers too. Having said that, you need lots of room as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger when compared to the average skip you will see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, RORO skips should only be used for light materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, so they are not suited to disposing of soil and bricks.

Am I allowed to put all types of rubbish in the skip?

This is one of the most frequent questions people have about our skip hire service. The most important thing to consider is that you may load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many types of waste that can come from garden projects, building work and household clearances.

Some of the most frequent items that we collect in skips include garden soil, timber, bush trimmings, cupboards, toilets, and various household objects.

There are some waste materials that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. This consists of any electronic products (dishwashers, monitors and printers for example), old car tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. These are all deemed hazardous waste, and therefore getting rid of them must adhere to an entirely different process to make sure they don’t result in damage to the environment.

Which skip sizes will have a door?

The majority of skip sizes can be provided with a drop down door, which makes them easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you require a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we can do our best to accommodate.

A skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the container, especially with weighty materials, like garden soil and rubble, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky items, such as pieces of furniture.

How do I hire a skip?

Ordering a skip in Brighton and Hove with us is incredibly simple. Choose the skip size you require and input a few details about where and when you want your skip delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and prepare to get your skip delivered to you.

Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Brighton and Hove?

In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you want the skip to be situated on land outside of your company or house, you need to receive authorisation from your local authority in Brighton and Hove, which is referred to as a permit. If necessary, we will be happy to arrange this on your behalf, so it’s one less point to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for your skip license, and you should be aware before ordering that securing the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We can in most cases deliver skips to Brighton and Hove the next working day when your order is placed before 3pm. This is applicable to orders made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking program will give you a number of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you would like a skip to arrive asap or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.

What different sizes do skips come in?

Skips are available in a wide range of sizes to match various waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small household tasks.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold around 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is an excellent choice for loft clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more significant waste disposal task to take on, the builder’s skip may be the smartest choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name suggests, they are the most common sizes used by builders for building waste, including soil and stone. However they can just as well be used for household waste such as broken furniture or bathroom suites.

We also provide 10-16 yard skips and commercial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For additional details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What is the size of a builders skip?

A builders skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These are the largest skips that can be used to discard substantial building and construction materials such as stone, bricks, gravel or clay.

A builders skip is ideal for a number of tasks. If you are getting an extension built, renovating your bathroom or cleaning the shed, these substantial skips are usually the most cost-effective solution available.

Am I allowed to throw electrical items in my skip?

Electronic items such as television sets, freezers, fridges, personal computers, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and so should not be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic products have to be segregated from other materials. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly manner.

How long am I able to keep the skip for?

You can typically keep the skip for up to 14 days from the date that it is delivered. To ensure that the collection will be as convenient as possible, you have the choice of providing a preferred collection day when placing your order.

Alternatively, just let us know when you have finished with the skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.

It could take a little longer to pick up your skip over busy times, but we will always try to be there as swiftly as possible.

Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?

If you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be at home at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can be sure the lorry has complete access and that the skip is positioned precisely where you want it. The same is true if you have a skip delivered to company premises, particularly when gates limit access.

However, when this is not feasible, you do not have to worry. Simply tell us when making your booking, and we will take care of the rest.

Who will deliver my skip?

To offer a thorough skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work with a variety of local and nationwide businesses. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to offer customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.
