Camberwell Skip Hire FAQs

Am I allowed to load the skip above the level load line?

Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this will make it dangerous to transport, and you will be asked to remove any items over the level load mark. This also means you cannot use sheets of wood, doors or any other item, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. We have a legal duty of care to ensure that bins are not overfilled or overweight before moving them.

Please be sure you order the correct size of skip for your needs and get in contact if you’re not sure which size you need. We will be happy to help.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Camberwell?

To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Camberwell, type in your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly display the sizes we provide in your town and how much each option will cost to order. If your skip is going to be on the road or other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also need to be factored in.

Am I able to get rid of electrical items in my skip?

Unfortunately it is not permitted, as electrical products including old televisions, cookers, pcs and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items have to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly fashion.

What skip sizes do you offer?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Camberwell, you have various options to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 cubic yard container, often referred to as a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact container is fantastic for modest house clearances and DIY tasks.

The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their substantial capacity also means they are well suited for house tidy ups involving large items like household furniture and beds.

We are able to provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for anyone with even bigger rubbish disposal requirements. These containers are only suitable for lightweight waste, so they can not be used to dispose of soil or stone.

Do you deliver to other areas in London?

We provide a UK wide skip hire and waste management service by using a network of verified and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you want skip hire in Camberwell, Carshalton, Bexleyheath, Coulsdon or another location in London, we can help.

Do I need to be there when the skip is delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be in on the day the skip is delivered. Then you can be sure the lorry has complete access and that the skip will be situated exactly where you need it. This also applies when you have a skip delivered to company premises, particularly if gates limit access.

However, if this is not possible, you don’t have to be concerned. Just let us know when you are placing your order, and we will take care of the rest.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Camberwell?

Since we offer a nationwide waste management service, we utilise a comprehensive network of approved companies. These can include small family-run skip hire firms to national waste management providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to make sure they meet our high customer service and environmental principles.

What is a builders skip?

The builder’s skip is probably the most popular skip which is used across the country. Available in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builders skip is fantastic for most building and demolition projects, which is where the name stems from.

The 8 yard builder’s skip is the largest size which can be used for hefty waste materials including garden soil, concrete, rock and gravel.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the next day. Sometimes, we will even offer a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed during the online order process.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered by skip companies and is perfect for smaller DIY jobs, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 yard skip, some companies will provide a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

If you run a company in Camberwell and wish to get rid of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a perfect choice. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers available.

As the name implies, these containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, unlike standard skips, that are lifted using chains.

Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the street in Camberwell?

Preferably, you should have the skip left on a hard surface area. For anybody who is doing a household task, then a driveway is going to be ideal. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. Having said that, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge could be your only option. As this is public property, you will need to have a permit from the local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be located on the street, grass verge or any other public property in Camberwell. If this is required, we will arrange for the permit to be granted on your behalf. An additional charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your skip.

What size skips have a drop door?

Typically, most skips can be supplied with a drop door, depending on size, availability and area. If you require a drop down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip which has a drop door is primarily helpful when you are hiring a big builder’s skip, since it lets you wheelbarrow waste directly into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini skips, as they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

You can usually keep a skip for up to two weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up is as convenient as possible, you have the option of offering a preferred collection date when placing your order.

Alternatively, just tell us when you have finished with the skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.

It may take a little longer to pick up your skip over busy times, however we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.

How can I order a skip?

We have developed our online booking system with speed and simplicity at its core. The first step is to type in your postcode to see the range of skip sizes we are able to supply in Camberwell. Select the right size to meet your needs and give us the details of when and where you want the skip delivered. After that you can make payment with our secure payment platform, and we’ll send you an email to confirm the transaction once your order is complete!

What can I put in the skip?

You are able to put a variety of rubbish into the skip. This can include wood, bathroom tiles, metal or bricks from a household clearance. Tree and bush cuttings, soil and rock from garden tasks are allowed as well. Dated cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also be thrown in a skip.

However, there are some items that you are not allowed to put in a skip due to the potential environment or health risks they might cause.

You are unable to throw out your freezer, laptop or car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these items incorporate hazardous components in one form or another. They should be discarded separately from your normal rubbish.

If you want hazardous waste removal, we may be able to schedule a separate collection for this material. Feel free to get in touch for more details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.

Where does the rubbish go once the skip is picked up?

The rubbish in your skip will be taken to the local waste transfer station. Here the contents will be segregated by machines and by hand into various waste streams, such as soil, plastics, rubble and timber. Sorting the waste in this way helps to increase the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is always to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste ending up in landfill.

Other areas covered include Carshalton, Bexleyheath, Coulsdon, Croydon, Hackney, Catford, Clapham and Haringey.
