Burgess Hill Skip Hire FAQs
Can I fill up the skip higher than the top?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this will make it hazardous to move, and you will have to empty any items above the level load mark. This also means that you are unable to make use of sheets of wood, doors or some other item, as this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty of care to ensure that containers aren’t overfilled or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure that you hire the appropriate size of skip to meet your needs and get in touch if you are not sure which size you need. We would be pleased to help.
What waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?
You are able to load your skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly produced from home clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include timber, dirt, concrete, garden trimmings, household furniture, clothing, cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you throw in the skip would depend on which skip size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight limit. For instance, in the event that you are using the skip for heavy construction waste such as stone or dirt, the largest size you can use is an 8 yard skip.
Some materials cannot be disposed of in your skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.
Can you deliver skips across West Sussex?
Along with delivering skips to Burgess Hill, we can also deliver to other towns and villages throughout West Sussex. By utilising a network of regional and national skip hire companies, we provide a totally nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to a house or business in Burgess Hill, Hassocks or Storrington, we have got it covered.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Burgess Hill?
In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you would like the skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or home, you have got to get authorisation from your local authority in Burgess Hill, which is referred to as a permit. If necessary, we will be happy to organise this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less point to worry about. The local authority will charge a fee for your permit, and you should be aware before ordering that securing the licence can sometimes take up to 2 working days.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are huge industrial scale skips used predominantly within the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for businesses that produce large volumes of waste materials.
When will my skip be delivered?
When your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a day that best suits you. We will usually give a following day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip on private property, since to go on public property (such as a street), you must get a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.
Due to many factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can anticipate it to be delivered within a morning or afternoon slot.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
It is always a good idea to be there when anyone delivers anything to your house. You can then make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be located precisely where you want it.
The same applies for those who have a business. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Burgess Hill?
The cost of getting a skip in Burgess Hill depends on the size of skip you require. The lowest priced option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY jobs and clearances. If you require a bigger skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also increase if you need to have a skip on the road, since you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.

What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?
The contents of the skip will be taken to a local waste transfer centre. Here the contents will be separated by machines and by hand into numerous waste materials, including soil, cardboard, hardcore and timber. Processing the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is always to maximise recycling and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.

How big is a builder’s skip?
The name builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. They are the largest containers that can be used to dispose of substantial building and demolition materials such as stone, bricks, gravel or soil.

How can I hire a skip?
Hiring a skip in Burgess Hill through us is incredibly simple. Decide on the skip size you need and then enter a handful of details about when and where you need the skip delivered. You can then pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and then prepare to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
What skip sizes have got a drop door?
Virtually all containers can be delivered with a drop door, making them easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and then we can do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the container, particularly with heavy materials, such as dirt and gravel, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in big and bulky items, like pieces of furniture.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
Typically, you can keep the skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you don’t have to hurry through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
Unfortunately this is not allowed, because electrical products including old TVs, fridges, printers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects have to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly manner.
Other areas covered include Hassocks, Storrington, Pulborough, East Grinstead, Haywards Heath, Chichester, Petworth and Horsham.
