Chislehurst Skip Hire FAQs
How large is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are fantastic for small DIY work and domestic clearances. Their small footprint means they are great for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and broken toys to paving slabs and soil. Having a volume of around 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you having to make numerous visits to your local recycling centre.
Am I allowed to pile up waste in my skip?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this will make it dangerous to transport, and you will probably have to remove any contents higher than the level load mark. This means you are not allowed to use sheets of timber, doors or another item, as this will increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal obligation to ensure that containers aren’t overfilled or overweight before transporting them.
Please be sure you hire the correct sized skip for your needs and get in touch if you’re not sure which size you require. We would be happy to help.
Where will you take the waste from my skip?
The materials in your skip will be taken to the local waste recycling centre. Here the contents will be segregated by machines and also by hand into different waste materials, including soil, paper, stone and wood. Processing the waste in this manner helps to increase the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the quantity of waste ending up in landfill.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Chislehurst?
In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you want the skip to be situated on land outside of your business or home, you must get permission from your local council in Chislehurst, which is called a permit. If necessary, we would gladly organise this for you, and so it’s one less thing to worry about. The council will charge a fee for your skip permit, plus you should be aware before booking that securing the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.
Will a Chislehurst skip hire company deliver my skip?
We utilise a network of both local and national skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our customers in Chislehurst and the rest of the country. Every one of our partner companies are approved and tested to ensure they match our standards for cost, customer service, recycling and reliability.
How many different skip sizes are available?
Skips are offered in a variety of sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small residential jobs.
Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is an excellent choice for garden shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
Should you have a more significant waste disposal job to take on, the builder’s skip might be the smartest choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name indicates, these are the most typical sizes hired by builders for construction waste, including clay and stone. However they can equally well be hired for domestic rubbish such as old furniture or bathroom suites.
We can also supply 10-16 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 on the link below.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The term builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yd skip. The term stems from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes that are hired by general builders and tradespeople.
These substantial containers are perfect for a wide variety of household and industrial tasks. These are the largest skips which can be used for heavy builders waste including top soil, rubble and gravel.
Will you deliver skips across London?
We offer a national skip hire service using a network of approved and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you are interested in skip hire in Chislehurst, Brent, Finchley, Forest Hill or any other area in London, we can assist.
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you offer?
If you manage a company in Chislehurst and want to dispose of large quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a fantastic option. Available in 20 to 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips available.
As the label implies, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, unlike regular skips, that are picked up using chains.
Am I able to put electrical items in my skip?
Electronic objects like televisions, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and so can not be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic goods have to be segregated from other materials. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly manner.
What can I put in the skip?
You are allowed to fill your skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly generated from home clearances, building work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include timber, soil, rubble, garden trimmings, household furniture, toys, cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.
What you put in your skip would depend on which size you have hired, because there is a weight restriction. For instance, if you are using a skip for heavy construction wastes including stone or dirt, the largest size you could get is an 8 yard skip.
Some materials should not be disposed of in a skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
You can normally keep a skip for up to 2 weeks from the day that it is delivered. To ensure the collection will be as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of providing a preferred collection day when you place your order.
Alternatively, simply let us know when you’ve finished with the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.
It might take a bit longer to collect your skip over busy periods, but we will always try to come as quickly as possible.
Do I have to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?
No, you do not have to be home when we are delivering your skip. Providing we can gain access to the place you want it delivered, we will manage it all.
In case you are not going to be in, simply let us have any relevant delivery directions when you place your order. For instance, you may want the skip to be dropped at a particular area of the drive. Or you might need to ensure that the skip doesn’t hinder entry to your garage.
No matter what the situation might be, let us know when you place your order, and we will ensure your instructions are passed on to the lorry driver.
When will my skip be delivered?
When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the next day. In some instances, we can even offer a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery days are confirmed as part of the online order process.
What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Chislehurst?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you would like to hire. Tell us if the skip shall be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on council property (like the road). Then, select the day you would like the skip to be delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment with our secure online payment system. All done! We will deliver your skip to Chislehurst on the day you have selected.
What is the cost of skip hire in Chislehurst?
The price of hiring a skip in Chislehurst is determined by the size of skip you require. The least expensive skip available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you want a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The charge will also be more if you want to have the skip placed on the highway, as you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Can I get a skip that has a drop door?
For anybody who is selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop door. This is ideal for disposing of heavy building and demolition materials, as it can be pushed in to the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop-down door, though these are typically more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are generally low enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our best to ensure a skip that has a drop door is provided.
