Bushey Skip Hire FAQs
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Bushey?
This depends on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if your skip is on your private property, such as a driveway or inside your business premises.
If you need to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Just let us know while completing the order process, and we can make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position your skip on your own property, you will save some pounds.
How many different skip sizes are there?
Skips come in a selection of sizes to suit various waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is good for small household jobs.
The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold around 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yd is a good choice for garden shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
Should you have a more significant rubbish disposal job to deal with, a builder’s skip could be the most suitable option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name implies, these are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders for building waste, like soil and rubble. But they can equally well be used for domestic waste such as outdated furniture or bathroom suites.
We also supply 10-16 yard bins and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more details about the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
Will a skip hire company from Bushey deliver my skip?
To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work with a number of local and national companies. This allows us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to provide customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.
Will the skip have a drop door?
Generally, nearly all skips can be provided with a hinged door, depending on size, availability and location. If you require a drop down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip that has a drop door is mainly beneficial if hiring a large builder’s skip, as it allows you to wheelbarrow your rubbish into the skip. This isn’t so important for midi and mini skips, as they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?
The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container used to transport large volumes of waste materials. In most cases, these type of containers are hired for industrial uses. Having said that, domestic customers can also use them. It is important to think about the area they occupy, as they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they must only be hired for light-weight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of garden soil and hardcore.
Am I allowed to throw away electronic products in the skip?
Electrical products like tv sets, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore should not be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered items have to be segregated from other waste. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly manner.

All we ask is that you make sure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery site, as unsuccessful deliveries will lead to a fee for the wasted trip.

Can I put all types of waste in my skip?
Prior to ordering a skip, it is essential to ensure that the kind of waste materials you need to discard is allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials need to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.

Examples of prohibited items include things like electronic items, tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately from your general waste.
What size is a builder’s skip?

These large containers are perfect for an array of residential and industrial projects. They are the largest sizes which can be used for weighty builders waste like top soil, rubble and concrete.
What will happen to the rubbish?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into various waste materials, such as wood, metals, plastics, etc. This means that as much of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Is it ok to fill the skip higher than the top?
It is important to not overfill a skip, as you risk being asked to take off excess waste before it can be collected. No matter what size you hire, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, as transporting an overloaded skip will be unsafe, as objects could drop and cause personal injury or damage to other people.
To prevent this issue, please ensure that you order a size appropriate for your waste disposal needs. If your skip is full and you have extra waste to dispose of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.
How much waste will a mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers are perfect for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them great for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and broken toys to paving blocks and garden soil. Having a capacity of around 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip could save you having to make numerous trips to the local recycling centre.
Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be in on the day it is delivered. Then you can make sure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip will be placed precisely where you need it. The same is true for those who have a skip delivered to company premises, especially if gates restrict access.
Having said that, if that isn’t possible, you do not need to worry. Just let us know when placing your order, and we will handle the rest.
