Cheshunt Skip Hire FAQs
What happens to my waste when the skip is collected?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get sorted into a variety of waste streams, including wood, metals and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish will be recycled as possible. We are proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
Will you deliver to other areas in Hertfordshire?
Yes. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we can provide skips to both residential and business customers across Hertfordshire and elsewhere in the UK.
What is the cost of skip hire in Cheshunt?
Our aim is to deliver the most affordable skip hire service in Cheshunt. The price you pay will, naturally, depend on the size of skip that you hire. This varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have your skip located on the street or other council property, you will also need to factor in the added expense of a skip permit.
Am I able to put electrical items in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical goods have to be kept separate from general rubbish to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric powered goods like tumble dryers, TVs, toasters, tablets and even hair straighteners.
Am I allowed to load the skip above level load mark?
I’m afraid not. You are only allowed to fill up the skip up to the level load mark. Stacking rubbish up above this line makes it dangerous to transport, and you may be asked to remove the excess waste before the skip can be collected. This includes using doors, or any other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and can also make it overweight.
What is the process of ordering a skip in Cheshunt?
This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you would like to hire. Tell us whether the skip is going to be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or council property (such as the street). After that, pick the day you want your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order details and make payment using our safe and secure online payment system. All done! We will deliver your skip to Cheshunt on the day you have selected.
Do all skips have a drop down door?
If you are hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is made for getting rid of heavy building and demolition waste, as it can be walked into the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also include a drop down door, although they are less common. Simply because these sizes are typically small enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our utmost to make sure a skip which has a drop door is delivered.
What is the size of a builders skip?
The name builders skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These will be the largest skips that can be hired to get rid of substantial construction materials such as rock, bricks, gravel or clay.
A builders skip is ideal for a wide array of jobs. If you are having an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or cleaning out your attic, these substantial skips are usually the most cost-effective option available.
How big is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are ideal for small DIY jobs and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste, from household furnishings and broken toys to paving blocks and soil. With a total capacity of approximately 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make multiple trips to your local recycling centre.
Who will deliver my skip?
We use a network of both local and nationwide skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our clients in Cheshunt and the rest of the UK. Every one of our partner companies are verified and evaluated to guarantee they match our standards for cost, service, recycling and reliability.
How long can I keep the skip for?
You can typically have the skip for as long as 2 weeks from your delivery date. You are able to provide a chosen collection date at the time you make your order. Alternatively, you can tell us after you have finished with the skip, and then we will organise your collection. Generally, this will be the following working day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer over busy times.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?
No, you do not need to be at home when we deliver your skip. Providing we can gain access to where you need it delivered, we are able to take care of it all.
In the event you are not going to be at home, just provide us with any relevant delivery directions when booking your order. For example, you may want the skip to be located on a particular area of your driveway. Alternatively, you might need to ensure that the skip doesn’t prevent use of your garage.
Whatever the situation may be, provide the details when ordering, and then we will make sure your instructions will be passed to the lorry driver.
How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are huge industrial size skips used mainly within the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them perfect for companies that produce significant volumes of waste.
How many different skip sizes are available?
Our company offers a full selection of skip sizes to residential and industrial clients all over the UK. We have a skip to suit all requirements – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the massive 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Here are the different skip sizes to choose from, with a rough idea of the amount of rubbish each skip can hold:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
- 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
- 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags

What waste am I allowed to put in a skip?
You can fill up your skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly generated from garage clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include timber, top soil, rubble, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you put in the skip would depend on the size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, in the event that you are using the skip for heavy construction waste like rubble or top soil, the biggest size you can get is the 8 yard builders skip.
Some materials should not be discarded in the skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.
If I want a skip on the road in Cheshunt, will I need to have 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 road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if your skip is on your private property, such as a driveway or on your company premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us during the order process, so we can make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position your skip on your own property, it will save you a few pounds.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will make sure your skip will be delivered when requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the very next day.
Although we are not able to guarantee a precise delivery time, we will always do our very best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
It is important to make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery attempt will most likely incur a charge for the wasted journey.
Other areas covered include Radlett, Baldock, Berkhamsted, Sawbridgeworth, Hoddesdon, Bushey, St Albans and Elstree.
