Burnham-on-Crouch Skip Hire FAQs
What will happen to the rubbish?
As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into the different waste streams, like wood, metals, paper, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What types of waste can you put in a skip?
It is possible to throw a wide array of rubbish in the skip. This includes timber, tile, plastics or concrete from a household clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, dirt and rock from garden tasks are permitted as well. Worktops from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be discarded in the skip.
However, there are some items that you cannot put in a skip a result of the potential environmental or health risks they can trigger.
You cannot throw out your refrigerator, printer or your old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these items contain hazardous materials in one type or another. They must be disposed of separately from general rubbish.
Should you need hazardous waste removal, we might be able to arrange a separate collection for this waste. Feel free to email for additional information. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.

Can I stack up the waste in my skip?
It is vital not to overfill a skip. You should not pass the level load mark that is indicated along the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it is very hazardous to transport. This means that if you overload the skip, you could be required to take away the excess waste. No matter how safe you think the skip is, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This can be dangerous and is therefore not allowed.

In most cases, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace.

How big is the mini skip?

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies offer you a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which may be slightly confusing.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container that can be used to get rid of significant quantities of waste materials. Generally, these type of skips are used for business uses. Having said that, household customers may also order them. It is important to look at the space they will occupy, because they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they should only be hired for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of garden soil and concrete.

Along with delivering our range of skips to Burnham-on-Crouch, we also deliver to other towns and villages across Essex. By utilising a network of regional and national waste management and recycling businesses, we provide a totally nationwide service.

What size is a builders skip?
The term builders skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. The term comes from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes hired by general builders and tradespeople.
These big containers are suited to numerous domestic and commercial tasks. They are the largest skip sizes that can be used for weighty builders waste including top soil, rubble and gravel.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
You can normally have a skip for as many as 2 weeks from the delivery date. You may give a chosen pick up date when you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can let us know once you have loaded the skip, and we will organise the collection. Generally, this will be the next business day, although it can sometimes take slightly longer during busy times.
Do I have to be there whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is best to be there when it is delivered. You can then be sure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip will be positioned precisely where you want it. This also is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to company premises, especially if gates restrict access.
Having said that, if that isn’t feasible, you do not have to worry. Simply tell us when you are placing your order, and then we will take care of everything.
Do all skips have a drop down door?
The vast majority of skips can be delivered with a drop door, making them much easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you require a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we will do our very best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the container, especially with weighty materials, such as soil and concrete, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in large and bulky items, such as household furniture.
Am I allowed to get rid of electrical products in my skip?
No, you cannot put old or broken electrical waste products in a skip. This includes things such as computers, hobs, washing machines, fridges and tv sets. These objects can’t be discarded in the skip since they can have dangerous materials and components.
Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.
