Camden Skip Hire FAQs
Can you deliver to other areas in London?
Certainly. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we are able to offer skips to domestic and commercial customers across London and elsewhere in the UK.
How fast can you deliver a skip to Camden?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a date that best suits you. We can normally provide a next day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, because to be on public property (such as a highway), you need to 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 guarantee a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to tell you whether you can expect it to be delivered in a AM or PM slot.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
The roll-on roll-off skip, often known as a RORO, is a large container used to dispose of large volumes of rubbish. These skips are primarily for business use but can be used by residential clients as well. However, you will need lots of room as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger in comparison to the average skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.
Due to the size, roro skips should only be used for lightweight materials such as plastics, timber and paper, and so they are not appropriate for disposing of concrete and rubble.
How much does skip hire in Camden cost?
This depends upon the size you require and whether you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the lowest priced option. The most expensive and biggest choice is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used mainly in commercial settings.

Where will the rubbish go once the skip is picked up?
The waste in your skip will be taken to a local waste transfer facility. Here the contents will be segregated by machines and by hand into various waste streams, such as soil, cardboard, stone and wood. Processing the waste in this way helps to maximise the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the quantity of waste that ends up in landfill.
What things can I put in the skip?
It is possible to put a variety of waste types into your skip. This can include wood, tile, plastics or rubble from a house clearance. Shrub and bush cuttings, soil and rock from garden work is allowed also. Worktops and units from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be thrown in a skip.
There are, however, some items that can’t be put in a skip a result of the possible ecological or health risks they can cause.
You are unable to throw out your refrigerator, laptop or car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also not allowed in the skip. All of these things consist of hazardous components in one kind or another. They must be discarded separately from your general rubbish.
If you require hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to arrange an independent service for this waste. Feel free to email us for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council run recycling facility.

What is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a cheap skip to get rid of some household rubbish, the mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to take on many jobs.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be located on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.
Although most often chosen by household customers, the mini skip can also handle small commercial jobs.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Camden?
In most cases, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the street, pathway 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 company or residence, you need to receive permission from the local authority in Camden, which is referred to as a permit. If necessary, we will be glad to arrange this for you, so it’s one less point to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the skip permit, and you should know before placing your order that securing the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.

To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work with a number of local and nationwide companies. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to ensure we can supply customers with the most cost effective and trusted skip hire service.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The term builders skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yard skip. The label stems from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes used by general builders and tradespeople.
These large containers are great for numerous household and industrial projects. These are the biggest size skips that can be used for hefty builders waste including top soil, stone and gravel.
Do I have to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?
No, you don’t have to be at home when we are delivering your skip. As long as we can gain access to the place you want it delivered, we are able to take care of it all.
When you are not going to be at home, simply provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when you book your order. For example, you might need the skip to be positioned on a particular side of your driveway. Or you might want to ensure that the skip does not obstruct entry to your garage.
No matter what the case may be, simply let us know when you place your order, and then we will make sure your directions are passed to the lorry driver.
Is it okay to fill my skip above the side?
You should not fill up a skip beyond the level load line. When you load it over the tip of this mark, it means your skip will not be safe and secure to move, and you could be asked to take off any excess waste before it can be picked up.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to two weeks. In most cases, that gives you sufficient time to fill up the skip. However, if you need a little more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Of course, if you finish with the skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just let us know once you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as quickly as possible.
Am I able to put electronic products in the skip?
Unfortunately not, because electronic items like old televisions, fridge freezers, printers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items have to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly fashion.
What skip sizes can have a door?
The vast majority of skips can be delivered with a drop door, which makes them easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the container, particularly with heavy materials, such as garden soil and rubble, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky items, like household furniture.
