Chingford Skip Hire FAQs
Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?
You don’t need to be home when the skip is going to be delivered, but it will help. Being home when your skip arrives means you can ensure the lorry can be given full access and that your skip can be positioned precisely where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is delivered to a company property, we will appreciate your support during the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
Having said that, for those who can’t be available during the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask that you let us know when you book your order, and then we will organise everything from there.
How long does it take to get a skip in Chingford?
We will make sure your skip will be provided when requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the next day.
Although we are not able to guarantee a precise delivery time, we will always do our best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You will need to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will in most cases incur a charge for the wasted trip.
How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most commonly supplied for building work. There are usually two sizes that can be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to get rid of large amounts of construction and demolition materials, such as soil, rubble and stone.
Even though they are labelled a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for many other domestic and industrial waste disposal tasks.
Will a Chingford skip hire company deliver my skip?

We offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service using a network of verified and fully licensed local companies. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Chingford, Richmond, Grove Park, Barnet or another location in London, we are able to help.
What size is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to dispose of some domestic waste, the mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to tackle many tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be located on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most frequently hired by household customers, the mini skip can also be used for small commercial jobs.
What different sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Chingford, you will have several options to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard container, also known as the mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact skip is fantastic for modest house clearances and DIY tasks.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most popular sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also means they are well suited for household clear ups including large objects such as pieces of furniture and beds.
We are able to provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for those with even larger waste disposal needs. These containers are only suited to light waste, so they can’t be used to get rid of garden soil or rubble.
For more information about the various sizes offered, such as proportions, check out our guide to skip sizes.
What will happen to my rubbish when the skip is picked up?
After you have finished filling your skip, we come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste recycling station either in or local to Chingford where we will segregate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are substantial industrial size skips that are used primarily within the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for businesses that produce significant quantities of waste.
Am I allowed to stack up the waste in my skip?
It is very important to not overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being required to take off excessive waste prior to it being collected. No matter what size you order, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, because moving an overloaded bin can be dangerous, as waste could drop and cause injury or damage to others.
To avoid this situation, please make sure you order a skip size suited to your waste removal requirements. If the skip is full but you have additional rubbish to get rid of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.
How long can I hire a skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to 2 weeks. In most cases, that will provide you with sufficient time to fill the skip. However, if you do need some more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, if you finish with the skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange a pick up. Just let us know when you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.
Can I get a skip which has a drop down door?
The vast majority of containers can be provided with a drop door, making them easy to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the bin, particularly with weighty materials, such as garden soil and concrete, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky items, such as furniture.
Am I able to get rid of electrical products in my skip?
Unfortunately it is not permitted, as electronic products including old TVs, fridge freezers, computers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects have to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly manner.
How do I hire a skip?
This is the easy part. First, choose the skip size you would like to hire. Let us know if the skip is going to be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on local authority property (such as the street). Then, select the date you need your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment with our secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Chingford on the date you have selected.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Chingford?
This will depend on the size you need and whether you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the least expensive option. The most expensive and biggest option is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in business settings.

Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the street in Chingford?
In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you need the skip to be placed on land outside of your business or house, you have got to obtain authorisation from the local council in Chingford, which is referred to as a permit. If necessary, we would be happy to arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less issue to worry about. The council will charge a fee for the permit, plus you should be aware before booking that obtaining the licence will often take up to two working days.
Am I allowed to dispose of all sorts of rubbish in the skip?
Before getting your skip, it is essential to ensure that the sort of waste you intend to discard will be allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials need to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
A few examples of waste types it is possible to discard in your skip include household items like pieces of furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You could also use your skip to throw out building and demolition rubbish, such as bricks, dirt, stone, metals and gravel.
Some examples of prohibited items include electrical items, car tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently must be disposed of separately from general rubbish.
