Chipping Ongar Skip Hire FAQs

What types of waste can I get rid of in a skip?

You can use a skip to dispose of many different waste materials. We are experienced in picking up and processing lots of materials generated from building jobs, garden landscaping and house clearances. Some examples of allowed waste types include:

  • Furniture
  • Tree cuttings
  • Soil
  • Concrete and bricks
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Many waste types are usually accepted, therefore whether you need to get rid of metals, plastic materials, timber or unwanted toys, we can usually take your rubbish away.

The volume and waste types you throw into your skip can vary based on which size skip you have ordered. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So if you want to get rid of garden soil and gravel, as an example, the biggest size you will be able to hire will be the 8 cubic yard skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in the skip?

There are some items which you are not able to dispose of in the skip. The reason for this is that some products incorporate hazardous components that may damage the environment. They can also be hazardous to human health, and so they have to be discarded separately under UK legislation.

Some of the products which are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • Computer screens
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

Our normal hire term is two weeks from your delivery date. Having said that, when you book the skip, you can provide a collection date that is ideal for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you just won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is finished with earlier than expected, tell us, and we will pick it up as quickly as possible.

We will usually complete collections within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to understand that this is not always the case at busy times. Once collected, the skip will be taken to your local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed and sorted.

What size skips do you provide?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Chipping Ongar, you have several options to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact container is great for modest house clearances and DIY tasks.

Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that 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 hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. But their substantial capacity also makes them suitable for household clear ups involving bulky objects like furniture and beds.

We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people with even larger waste disposal needs. These sizes are only appropriate for lightweight materials, so they cannot be used to dispose of garden soil or stone.

For further details about the different capacities available, such as measurements, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

Will my skip be supplied with a drop door?

Having a skip which has a drop door can make filling waste into it so much easier. This is especially the case with heavy waste like garden soil or concrete, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading up big bulky objects like household furniture much easier too.

Most skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, but this will sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when you place your online order if a door is required, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The phrase builders skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yard skip. The term comes from the fact that these are the most popular sizes used by builders and tradespeople.

These big skips are perfect for numerous residential and business projects. They are the largest skips which can be used for hefty builders waste like top soil, stone and gravel.

How do I order a skip?

This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you would like to hire. Tell us whether the skip is going to be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on council property (such as the street). Then, choose the date you want your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. Job done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Chipping Ongar on the date you have selected.

Do you deliver to other areas in Essex?

Absolutely. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we are able to offer skips to household and business customers throughout Essex and anywhere else within the UK.

How much does skip hire in Chipping Ongar cost?

The cost of getting a skip in Chipping Ongar is determined by the size of skip you need. The least expensive option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and clearances. If you want a larger sized skip, like an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also increase if you need to have your skip placed on the road, since you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

Will a skip hire company from Chipping Ongar deliver my skip?

A local skip firm will likely deliver your skip in Chipping Ongar. We work with a network of both regional and national providers to allow us to offer our service to customers throughout the whole of the UK. These companies are thoroughly vetted to make sure they meet the high standards we demand when it comes to customer service, price and environmental performance.

Is it okay to load up my skip higher than level load line?

You must not fill up a skip past the level load mark. When you fill it up over the tip of this level, it means that your skip will not be safe to transport, and you might be asked to take off any excess waste before it can be picked up.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Chipping Ongar?

Usually, it will be possible to get the skip positioned on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But to get this done, you will need to have permission from the local council in Chipping Ongar, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to order this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for this permit, and it can sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to approve this.

Am I allowed to put electronic products in the skip?

No, you cannot dispose of old or broken electronic waste items in your skip. This can include things such as printers, microwaves, tumble dryers, refrigerators and tv sets. Electronic objects can’t be thrown in a skip since they can contain hazardous materials and components.

As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

If you run a business in Chipping Ongar and need to dispose of large quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a great option. Available in 20 – 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers available.

As the label suggests, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, unlike normal skips, that are lifted by using chains.

How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact skip delivered by skip firms and is designed for small DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of waste.

Instead of a 2 yard skip, some firms will offer a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?

It is always a good idea to be there when anybody delivers anything to your house. You can then make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, plus the skip can be dropped precisely where you want it.

The same applies if you have a business. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.

Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.

How quickly can you deliver a skip to Chipping Ongar?

We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you complete your booking prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will normally have the skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver, we strive to offer you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery area, as unsuccessful deliveries will lead to a fee for the wasted trip.

What will happen to the waste when the skip is collected?

If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The waste gets segregated into a variety of waste streams, such as stone, metals and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the collection can be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our dedication to minimising environmental impact by sending as little to landfill as possible!

Other areas covered include Brentwood, Harlow, Wickford, Manningtree, Braintree, Witham, Harwich and Maldon.
