We can deliver skips across Chesham as well as the surrounding areas. If you are having a skip positioned on your private property (like a driveway), we can often schedule delivery within 24 hours. Skips that will be positioned on the road require a bit longer, since we will need to get a permit from the local council.

Chesham Skip Hire FAQs
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
Electrical products such as tv sets, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous waste and so should not be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic goods should be separated from other waste. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.
If I want a skip on a road in Chesham, will I need a permit?
This depends on where the skip is going to be located. You will only require a skip permit if it is placed on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit when your skip will be on private property, like a drive or on your business premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us during the order process, and we will make the necessary arrangements with your local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can place your skip on private property, you will save some money.
How do I hire a skip?
This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you want to hire. Let us know whether the skip will be going on private property (a drive, for example) or council property (like the street). Then, choose the day you would like the skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment using our secure online payment platform. That is it! We will deliver your skip to Chesham on the day you have selected.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
Virtually all skip sizes can be supplied with a drop door, making them much easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we will do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the skip, particularly with heavy materials, like garden soil and bricks, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, such as furniture.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are large industrial size skips that are used predominantly in the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them perfect for organisations that generate large volumes of waste.
Can I load my skip higher than the top?
You should not fill up a skip past the level load mark. When you fill it above the tip of this level, it means that your skip is not safe and secure to transport, and you may be asked to take off the extra rubbish prior to it being picked up.
How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?
If you have a small quantity of rubbish to dispose of, the mini skip may be the ideal solution. What size is identified as a mini skip is different from company to company, dependant upon what sizes they supply.
The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 cubic yard skip for their smallest option. The cost is dependent on the actual size you order, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are perfect for household tasks including small DIY projects and shed tidy ups. If you want it positioned on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
You can normally keep your skip for as long as 14 days from the delivery date. You are able to provide a chosen pick up day when you make your order. Alternatively, you can tell us after you have finished with the skip, and we will organise the collection. Generally, this will be the following working day, although it can occasionally take a bit longer during busy times.
Where will you take the waste from my skip?
Once you have finished filling up your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste transfer facility in or local to Chesham where we separate the waste into its composite types (wood, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
What things can I put in the skip?
You are able to put a wide array of rubbish into the skip. This can include wood, tile, plastics or rubble from a house clearance. Tree and bush cuttings, soil and stone from garden work is allowed too. Cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be discarded in a skip.
However, there are some items that you cannot put in a skip a result of the potential ecological or health risk they could trigger.
You cannot throw in your freezer, laptop or old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also not allowed in the skip. All of these things contain hazardous elements in one type or another. They should be disposed of separately from your normal rubbish.
Should you require hazardous waste removal, we may be able to organise an independent service for this material. Please email us for additional information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you may be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
Should I stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t need to be at home when your skip is going to be delivered, however it will help. Being home when the skip is being delivered means that you can ensure the delivery driver can be given complete access and that your skip can be placed precisely where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is being delivered to company property, we will appreciate your support during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
Having said that, when you can’t be available at the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask that you let us know when you place the order, and we will arrange everything from there.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most frequently hired for building and demolition work. There are usually two sizes that can be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers which can be used to dispose of large quantities of building and demolition waste materials, such as soil, concrete and stone.
Even though they are branded a builders skip, they can of course be used for a number of other household and business waste disposal tasks.
Who will deliver my skip?
As we offer a UK-wide waste management service, we use a comprehensive network of verified companies. These can range from small local skip hire businesses to national waste management providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to make sure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental standards.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Chesham?
To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Chesham, enter your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly display the skip sizes we offer in your location and how much each one costs to hire. If the skip is going to be on the road or other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also have to be factored in.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
Skips are available in a variety of sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of waste, which is great for small residential tasks.
Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold roughly 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is an excellent choice for garden shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.
When you have a more significant rubbish disposal job to sort out, a builder’s skip could be the smartest choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title suggests, these represent the most frequent sizes used by builders for construction waste, including soil and rubble. However they can equally well be hired for household rubbish such as outdated furniture or bathroom suites.
We also deliver 10-16 cubic yard containers and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
