Chalfont St Peter Skip Hire FAQs
Do I have to be home when the skip will be delivered?
You don’t need to be at home when your skip is going to be delivered, however it does help. Being there when the skip arrives means that you can make sure the delivery driver can be given complete access and that your skip can be positioned exactly where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is delivered to your business property, we will appreciate your support at the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.
However, in the event you can’t be around during the time of delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you book your order, and then we will arrange everything from there.
Am I allowed to dispose of all types of waste in my skip?
Your skip can be hired to discard lots of different types of waste materials. We are used to picking up and handling numerous materials generated from building jobs, garden projects and house clearances. Examples of allowed waste products include things like:
- Home furniture
- Tree cuttings
- Stone and concrete
- Bathroom suites
- Cabinets and units
Many different materials are usually allowed, therefore whether you need to get rid of metals, plastics, timber or fabric, we can normally take your waste away.
The volume and materials you put into the skip may vary according to the size skip you ordered. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So if you need to discard garden soil and rubble, for example, the largest size you would be permitted to hire would be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
What type of materials am I not allowed to put in a skip?
There are several items you are not able to get rid of in the skip. The reason for this is that some goods incorporate hazardous components that may harm the environment. They can also be harmful to human health, so they need to be disposed of separately under UK law.
Some examples of the items which are restricted include:
- Paint tins
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas cylinders
- Computer screens
- Battery packs
- Car tyres
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?
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 waste will be sorted into various waste materials, like timber, metals, paper, etc. This makes sure that as much of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Am I able to throw electronic items in my skip?
I’m afraid not, since electronic products including old televisions, freezers, printers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items must be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly way.
How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available from skip companies and is designed for small DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip companies will offer a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
A roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a huge skip that can be used to dispose of large volumes of rubbish. These bins are primarily for industrial use but can be hired by residential customers too. Having said that, you will want a good amount of room as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger when compared to the average skip you will see on the roadside.
Due to the size, these containers can only be used for lightweight materials like plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not suitable for getting rid of concrete and rubble.
If I would like a skip on a road in Chalfont St Peter, will I need a permit?
This depends upon where the skip will be positioned. You will only need to have a permit when it is put on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if the skip is on private property, like a drive or within your business premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Just tell us during the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place the skip on private property, it will save you some money.
Can I load the skip higher than the top?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this will make it unsafe to transport, and you will be asked to remove any items over the level load mark. This means that you can not make use of sheets of timber, doors or some other item, since this will increase the size of the skip. We have a legal duty of care to make sure that containers aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please be sure to select the appropriate sized skip to meet your needs and get in touch if you’re uncertain which size is best. We would be happy to help.
How long will it take to get a skip in Chalfont St Peter?
When your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it to you on a date that best suits you. We will usually give a next day delivery service for orders arranged prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip on private property, as to be on public property (like a road), you will need to gain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of several factors that could impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can anticipate it turning up within a AM or PM slot.

We provide a nationwide skip hire service through a network of verified and fully licensed local partners. So whether you would like skip hire in Chalfont St Peter, Great Missenden, Aylesbury, Milton Keynes or any other location in Buckinghamshire, we can help.
What size is a builders skip?
The builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These will be the largest containers that can be used to get rid of substantial building and demolition waste materials such as stone, concrete, gravel or soil.
The builders skip is ideal for a number of projects. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing out the loft space, these big containers are often the most affordable choice available.
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
We provide a full variety of skip capacities to residential and industrial clients all over the UK. We have a skip to suit all requirements – from the modest 2 yard mini skip to the massive 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Listed below are the different skip sizes to choose from, with a rough guide to how much waste each skip is capable of holding:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags

For additional information about our selection of skips, like measurements plus the waste they can be used for, check out our guide to skip sizes.
What skip sizes have a drop door?
When you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is designed for getting rid of heavy building and demolition rubbish, as it can be pushed into the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also include a drop door, though they are more uncommon. This is because these sizes are generally low enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to ensure a skip that has a drop door is delivered.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to 2 weeks. Usually, this gives you sufficient time to fill your skip. However, if you need more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Of course, if you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange a collection. Just let us know once you have finished, and we will prepare to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.
