Broadstairs Skip Hire FAQs
How much does skip hire in Broadstairs cost?
This will depend on the skip size you want and whether you will require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the least expensive choice. The most costly and largest choice is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in commercial settings.

Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the street in Broadstairs?
In most cases, it is possible to get a skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to get this done, you need to get approval from the local council in Broadstairs, which is called a skip permit. We will organise this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for this license, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.
Will my skip be supplied with a drop down door?
For anyone who is getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop-down door. This is made for disposing of heavy building and construction materials, as it can be pushed in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also include a drop down door, though they are more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are typically small enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you need a drop door for your job, please tell us when placing your order. We will do our utmost to make sure a skip with a drop door is supplied.
Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
Unfortunately this is not allowed, because electrical items including old televisions, fridges, printers and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects have to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly manner.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Broadstairs?
A local skip hire firm will likely deliver your skip in Broadstairs. We make use of a network of both regional and national businesses to enable us to provide our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These companies are fully assessed to make certain they meet the high principles we require in terms of service, cost and environmental performance.
Where does the waste be taken to when the skip is collected?
When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into different waste streams, such as wood, metals, paper, etc. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Do I need to be in when the skip will be delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is usually best to be in at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure the lorry has total access and that the skip can be placed precisely where you want it. This also is true if you have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly if gates limit access.
Having said that, if this isn’t achievable, you do not have to be concerned. Just tell us when placing your booking, and we will handle the rest.
What can I put in my skip?
You can put a variety of waste types into your skip. This includes timber, bathroom tiles, plastics or bricks from a house clearance. Tree and bush clippings, dirt and rock from garden jobs are allowed as well. Cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also go in a skip.
There are, however, things that can’t be put in a skip because of the possible environmental or health risk they could trigger.
You are unable to throw in your refrigerator, printer or car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things incorporate hazardous components in one form or another. They must be discarded separately from your general waste.
If you want hazardous waste removal, we might be able to organise an independent service for this material. Please email for more details. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container used to transport significant amounts of waste. Predominantly, these skips are hired for commercial purposes. Having said that, residential clients can also order them. It is important to think about the space they take up, since they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they can only be utilised for lightweight materials like paper, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of soil and rubble.
How big is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers are fantastic for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and old toys to paving slabs and soil. Having a total capacity of about 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip can save you having to make numerous journeys to the local recycling centre.
Is it ok to load the skip above the level load mark?
It is important never to overload your skip. You can not pass the level load mark that is shown along the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it can be very hazardous to move. This means that when you overload your skip, you could be asked to take away the surplus rubbish. However safe you feel the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This is unsafe and is prohibited.

What is the size of a builders skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most commonly supplied for building and demolition projects. There are generally two skip sizes which can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to dispose of significant quantities of construction and demolition materials, including garden soil, rubble and rock.
Although labelled a builders skip, these can of course be used for various other residential and commercial waste disposal jobs.
