Brixton Skip Hire FAQs

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Brixton?

Generally, it is possible to get a skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But in order to do this, you have got to get approval from your local authority in Brixton, which is called a skip permit. We can arrange this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council will charge a fee for your permit, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.

Am I able to have a skip with a drop door?

Generally, most skips can be provided with a drop-down door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you require a drop-down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Having a skip which has a drop door is mainly beneficial when you are choosing a large builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow your rubbish into the skip. This is not as important for mini skips, as they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

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

When you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is always best to be in at the time it is delivered. You can then ensure the lorry has full access and that the skip can be located precisely where you need it. The same is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to company premises, especially when gates limit access.

However, if this isn’t possible, you don’t need to worry. Just tell us when placing your order, and we will handle everything.

What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The waste gets sorted into a number of waste streams, including timber, metals and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish can be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our dedication to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

You can usually keep a skip for up to 14 days from the date that it is delivered. To ensure that the collection is as convenient as possible, there is the choice of offering a preferred collection time when placing your order.

Otherwise, just let us know when you have finished with your skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the following working day.

It might take a little bit longer to pick up your skip during busy periods, however we will always endeavour to come as swiftly as possible.

Am I allowed to throw electronic items in my skip?

No, you can not put old electronic waste items in your skip. This includes things such as laptops or computers, hobs, tumble dryers, fridges and tv sets. These items can’t be thrown in your skip because they can contain dangerous materials and components.

As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.

What things can I put in the skip?

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

Some of the most common things that we see in our skips include garden soil, wood, hedge trimmings, kitchen cabinets, sinks, and various household products.

There are also some materials that you are not allowed to put in the skip. This consists of any electrical objects (refrigerators, televisions or laptops for example), tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. These are all regarded as hazardous waste, and so getting rid of them needs to abide by a completely different process to ensure they don’t cause harm to the environment.

What different sizes do skips come in?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Brixton, you will have numerous options to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 cubic yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact skip is great for modest domestic clearances and DIY tasks.

The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most popular sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also means they are suitable for house clearances including bulky objects such as household furniture and beds.

We can provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for those with even larger waste disposal requirements. These containers are only suitable for lightweight materials, so they cannot be hired to get rid of garden soil or concrete.

For additional details about the various skip sizes available, including measurements, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.

Can you deliver to other areas in London?

Along with delivering skips and containers to Brixton, we also deliver to other towns and villages across London.

Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?

It is important never to overload your skip, as you run the risk of being required to take out excessive waste prior to it being collected. Irrespective of what size you order, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, as moving an overloaded container can be hazardous, as rubbish could drop and result in injury or damage to others.

To prevent this problem, please ensure that you hire a skip size suitable for your waste removal requirements. If your skip is full but you have more waste to dispose of, we are happy to provide an exchange.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container used to dispose of large volumes of waste materials. In the majority of cases, these type of containers are used for business uses. Having said that, residential customers may also use them. It is very important consider the area they will take up, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be hired for light waste including plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of soil and hardcore.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be positioned on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit.

Although most frequently chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can also be used for smaller commercial jobs.

How much waste will a builders skip hold?

As the name suggests, a builders skip means the size of skip most commonly supplied for building and demolition jobs. There are generally two different skip sizes that may be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers which you can use to dispose of large volumes of construction and demolition waste materials, including dirt, rubble and bricks.

Even though they are branded a builders skip, they can of course be used for various other residential and business waste disposal tasks.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a date that best suits you. We will normally offer you a next day delivery service for orders arranged prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip placed on private property, since to go on public property (like a street), you will have to gain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.

As a result of many factors that may impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it to be delivered within a AM or PM slot.

Other areas covered include Bexley, Hampstead, Carshalton, Edmonton, Coulsdon, Westminster, Hammersmith and Haringey.
