Clapham Skip Hire FAQs
What waste am I allowed to put in a skip?
It is possible to fill up your skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly produced from home clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include timber, dirt, concrete, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.
What you throw in your skip depends on the size you have hired, as there is a weight limit. For instance, when you will be using your skip for heavy building waste including bricks or dirt, the largest size you can get is the 8 cubic yard.
Some materials cannot be discarded in your skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.
What is the cost of skip hire in Clapham?
Our goal is to give you the cheapest skip hire service in Clapham. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you want to have the skip placed on the highway or other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the extra cost of the skip permit.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to 14 days. In most cases, that will provide you with plenty of time to load the skip. However, if you do need a bit more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, if you finish with the skip earlier, we are happy to arrange your pick up. Just let us know when you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.
What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a huge container that is used to dispose of large volumes of waste. These containers are mainly for commercial use but can be used by household customers too. Having said that, you will need plenty of space since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger compared to the typical skip you will see on the side of the road.
Due to the size, these skips can only be used for light materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not suitable for disposing of concrete and bricks.
What size skips will have a drop down door?
Having a skip which has a drop down door helps make filling rubbish into the skip so much easier. This is particularly true with heavy waste like dirt and stone, which can then be walked directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make throwing away big bulky objects like household furniture much easier also.
The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, however this can sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a drop door is required, and we will do our best to supply this.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
The name builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These will be the biggest skips that can be hired to discard substantial construction waste such as stone, bricks, gravel or clay.
A builders skip is ideal for a wide range of projects. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing out the garage, these substantial skips are often the most affordable choice available.
Can you deliver to other areas in London?
Of course, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skip sizes to areas across London, such as Clapham, Hammersmith, Enfield and Haringey. So regardless of where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Clapham?
This depends on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need a skip permit if it is positioned on public property, such as 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 company premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know while completing the order process, so we can make the necessary arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position your skip on private land, it will save you some money.
Do I need to be there whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
It is always best if you can be there when anybody delivers something to your home. That enables you to ensure there is sufficient access for the delivery, and the skip can be dropped exactly where you want it.
The same thing goes if you have a business. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.
Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.
Can I pile up waste in my skip?
It is important never to overload a skip. You must not pass the level load line shown on the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it will become very unsafe to transport. This means that if you overload the skip, you may be asked to take away the excess rubbish. However safe you feel the skip to be, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat materials to build up around the waste. This can be hazardous and is not allowed.
How much waste can a mini skip hold?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to get rid of some household rubbish, a mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to tackle numerous jobs.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be positioned on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most commonly chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.
Where will you take the waste from my skip?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste gets sorted into a number of waste types, which includes stone, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste can be recycled as possible. We are proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

All we request is that you ensure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery location, as failed delivery attempts will result in a charge for the wasted trip.
Can I put electronic items in the skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items have to be kept separate from general waste materials to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric powered products such as tumble dryers, TVs, toasters, tablets and even hairdryers.
What skip sizes can you supply?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Clapham, you have multiple sizes to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is excellent for small home clearances and DIY jobs.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their substantial capacity also makes them suitable for household clear ups including large items like pieces of furniture and beds.
We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people and businesses with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These containers are only appropriate for lightweight waste, so they can’t be hired to dispose of soil or concrete.
For additional information regarding the various capacities available, such as proportions, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
