Buckingham Skip Hire FAQs
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you provide?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are huge commercial scale skips that are used mainly within the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them perfect for organisations that produce significant volumes of waste.
Which skip sizes have a drop door?
When you are ordering 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 construction materials, as it can be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also have a drop door, though these are less common. The reason being these sizes are generally low enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our utmost to ensure a container with a drop door is delivered.

Will you deliver skips across Buckinghamshire?
Absolutely. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we are able to supply skips to both domestic and business customers across Buckinghamshire and anywhere else in the UK.
Am I able to put all types of waste in my skip?
This is among the most popular questions people have about hiring a skip. The most important thing to remember is that you can fill your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are so many kinds of waste that will come from garden work, construction work and home clearances.
Some of the most typical items that we pick up in skips include soil, wood, tree trimmings, kitchen units, bathroom suites, and various other household products.
There are also some materials that you are not allowed to put in your skip. This consists of any electrical products (fridge freezers, monitors or cookers for example), old tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. They are all deemed hazardous waste, and therefore getting rid of them must abide by a completely different process to make sure they do not cause harm to the environment.
Where will you take the rubbish from my skip?
When you have finished filling up your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste recycling centre in or local to Buckingham where we will sort the rubbish into its composite types (wood, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is regarded as the popular skip that is used across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builders skip is fantastic for most building and construction tasks, which is where the label originates from.
The 8 yd builders skip is the largest size which you can use for heavy materials including soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Buckingham?
Normally, it is possible to have a skip located on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to get this done, you will need to get consent from your local council in Buckingham, which is known as a skip permit. We can arrange this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority do charge a fee for this permit, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
What different sizes do skips come in?
We provide a wide selection of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip perfect for modest DIY jobs and household clearances. A common option for bigger projects, renovations and building work is the 8 yard skip.
For Buckingham firms which have a large volume of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Do I need to be there when the skip is due to be delivered?
No, you do not need to be home when we are delivering your skip. Provided that we can gain access to where you want it located, we will manage it all.
In the event you are not likely to be in, simply let us have any relevant delivery directions when you place the order. For instance, you may need the skip to be dropped on a particular side of your driveway. Alternatively, you might need to ensure the skip doesn’t prevent use of your garage.
Whatever the case might be, simply let us know when ordering, and then we will ensure your directions will be passed on to the delivery driver.
How soon can you deliver a skip in Buckingham?
When your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it for you on a date that suits you. We can typically offer a next day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip placed on private property, since to go on public property (for example a road), you must obtain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.
As a result of several factors that can impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to inform you whether you can anticipate it to be delivered in a morning or afternoon slot.
Am I able to get rid of electronic products in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items have to be kept separate from general rubbish to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electric powered products including tumble dryers, monitors, toasters, tablets and even hair straighteners.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Buckingham?
The price of hiring a skip in Buckingham is determined by the size of skip you need. The lowest priced skip available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you need a bigger skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also be more if you need to have your skip placed on the highway, since you will require a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Can I stack up waste in my skip?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this makes it hazardous to transport, and you will then have to empty any rubbish over the level load line. This also means that you can not use sheets of wood, doors or another item, as this will increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty of care to make sure that skips are not overfilled or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure to select the appropriate size of skip for your needs and get in touch if you are uncertain which size is best. We will be pleased to help.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
You can usually have the skip for up to 14 days from the date of delivery. You can give a preferred pick up day at the time you make your order. Alternatively, you can let us know when you have finished, and we will prepare the collection. Normally, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer over busy times.
What size is a mini skip?
If you have a small amount of rubbish to get rid of, the mini skip could be the best option. What size is known as a mini skip differs from business to business, determined by what sizes they provide.
2 cubic yards is considered the most common size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to have a 3 yard container as their smallest option. Cost is dependent on the specific size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are great for household jobs like small DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you want it placed on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
