Buckhurst Hill Skip Hire FAQs
What is a builders skip?
As the name suggests, a builders skip means the size of skip most commonly used for building and demolition work. There are generally two sizes that may be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips which can be used to get rid of significant volumes of construction and demolition waste, including garden soil, concrete and rock.
Although they are labelled a builder’s skip, these can be used for many other residential and commercial waste disposal jobs.
Which skip sizes can have a drop door?
For anybody who is hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop down door. This is designed for getting rid of hefty building and demolition materials, as it can be pushed into the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop door, though these are less common. This is because these sizes are generally small enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, please tell us when placing your order. We will do our very best to make sure a container that has a drop door is provided.

Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the street in Buckhurst Hill?
Generally, it will be possible to get a skip placed on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to do this, you will need to have approval from the local authority in Buckhurst Hill, which is known as a skip permit. We can organise this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council will impose a fee for this permit, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.

Is it ok to stack up the waste in my skip?
It is important to never overfill the skip. You must not pass the level load line that is indicated on the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it will become very unsafe to move. This means that when you overload your skip, you could be asked to take off the surplus waste. Regardless of how safe you believe the skip is, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This can be unsafe and is not allowed.
Do I need to be home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t have to be at your property when your skip is delivered, however it does help. Being in when the skip is due for delivery means that you can make sure the lorry driver is given full access and that the skip can be positioned exactly where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is delivered to a company property, we will appreciate your assistance at the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
Even so, for those who can’t be available for delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask that you let us know when you place your order, and we will arrange everything from there.

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

Alternatively, just let us know when you’ve finished with your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the majority of circumstances, it will be the next working day.
It might take a little longer to collect your skip during busy periods, however we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Buckhurst Hill?
As we provide a nationwide skip service, we use a comprehensive network of verified and approved businesses. These can include small local skip hire companies to national waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental standards.
Am I able to throw away electrical items in the skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects must be kept separate from general waste to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electronic products including washing machines, monitors, kettles, laptops and even hairdryers.
What waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?
Prior to ordering your skip, it is essential to make sure that the kind of rubbish you intend to discard is allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials need to be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Waste types it is possible to throw in a skip include household items like furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use a skip to throw out building and construction waste, including old bricks, dirt, stone, metals and gravel.
Examples of prohibited items include electrical goods, car tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. These are all classed as hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.
What is the cost of skip hire in Buckhurst Hill?
This is determined by the skip size you require and whether you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the lowest priced option. The most expensive and largest choice is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in business settings.

How much waste can the mini skip hold?
For those who have a small amount of rubbish to dispose of, the mini skip might be the perfect choice. What size is identified as a mini skip differs from company to company, depending on what sizes they provide.
2 cubic yards is probably the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to provide a 3 cubic yard container as their smallest option. The price is dependent on the particular size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are best for residential work like small DIY projects and shed tidy ups. If you would like it put on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
Where will the waste go when the skip is collected?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get sorted into a variety of waste types, which includes wood, soil and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection is recycled as possible. We are very proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ensure your skip is provided on the day required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the very next day.
Although we can’t promise a precise delivery time, we will do our very best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You have to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will usually incur a fee for the wasted trip.
