Chertsey Skip Hire FAQs
Which skip sizes can have a drop door?
Generally speaking, almost all skips can be supplied with a hinged door, dependant upon size, availability and area. If you need a drop door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Having a skip with a drop door is primarily helpful when choosing a large builder’s skip, because it enables you to wheelbarrow your rubbish directly into the skip. This is not as important for mini and midi skips, because they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
If I want a skip on the road in Chertsey, will I need to get a permit?
In the majority of cases, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you would like your skip to be located on land outside of your company or home, you will have to obtain authorisation from the local authority in Chertsey, which is referred to as a permit. If required, we will be glad to organise this for you, so it’s one less thing to worry about. The council will charge a fee for the skip license, plus you should be aware before ordering that securing the licence can often take up to 2 working days.
What sort of rubbish can I put in a skip?
A skip can be used to get rid of lots of different types of waste. We are used to collecting and processing a wide variety of items generated from construction work, garden projects and house clean-ups. A few examples of allowed waste materials include:
- Hedge trimmings
- Top soil
- Bathroom toilets and sinks
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Many different waste materials are generally accepted, therefore whether you want to get rid of metals, plastic materials, timber or clothing, we can usually take your waste away.
The quantity and things you put into the skip can vary based on the size skip you have chosen. All skips do have a weight limit for safety purposes. So to be able to get rid of garden soil and gravel, for example, the largest size container you would be allowed to hire would be the 8 yard skip.
What sort of items am I not allowed to put in a skip?
There are a few items you are not able to put in your skip. The reason for this is that these goods incorporate hazardous elements which may damage the environment. They can also be harmful to human health, therefore they have to be discarded separately under UK legislation.
Some of the items that are restricted include:
- Paint tins
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas canisters
- Computer monitors
- Chemical substances
What happens to my rubbish when the skip is collected?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste gets separated into a number of waste types, including timber, soil and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the collection can be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are big commercial size skips that are used predominantly in the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for companies that generate significant quantities of waste materials.
How long can I hire the skip for?
Generally, you can have the skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you don’t need to rush through your project. If you have finished your project or the skip is full before the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.
What skip sizes do you provide?
We offer a full variety of skip capacities to domestic and business clients all over the UK. We have a skip to suit all needs – from the modest 2 cubic yard mini skip to the massive 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.

What is the cost of skip hire in Chertsey?
Our goal is to give you the most affordable skip hire service in Chertsey. The price you pay will, obviously, depend upon the size of skip that you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have a skip positioned on the street or other council property, you will also need to factor in the extra cost of the skip permit.
Can I dispose of electronic products in my skip?
No, you cannot put old or unwanted electrical waste items in your skip. This includes items like computers, hobs, tumble dryers, fridges and computer monitors. Electronic objects can’t be discarded in the skip because they can contain hazardous materials and components.
Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot be sent to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
How can I order a skip online?
Ordering a skip should not be hard. This is why we have made the order procedure as easy as possible. First, type in your address to view the range of skips we can deliver to Chertsey. Pick which size you want to hire, and confirm if it will be dropped on your own property. Type in your information and then make payment using our secure online payment platform.
When your order is complete, we will send you a confirmation email with your booking information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
Is it ok to pile up the waste in my skip?
You should not fill your skip beyond the level load mark. When you load it above the tip of this level, it means that the skip will not be safe and secure to move, and you could be asked to remove the extra rubbish before it can be collected.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?
You don’t have to be home when the skip is being delivered, but it will help. Being home when the skip arrives means you can make sure the driver can be given complete access and that the skip can be located precisely where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is being delivered to company premises, we will appreciate your assistance during the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
Having said that, in the event you can’t be available during delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask that you let us know when you place the order, and then we will organise things from there.
How much waste will a builders skip hold?
The name builders skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These will be the largest containers used to discard substantial building and demolition materials such as stone, concrete, gravel or garden soil.
A builders skip is perfect for a wide array of jobs. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning out your loft space, these large containers are usually the most cost-effective choice available.
What is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a low cost skip to dispose of some domestic waste, the mini skip may be just the thing 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 option to deal with numerous jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be located on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.
Although most often hired by household customers, the mini skip can even be used for smaller commercial jobs.
