Below are a few of the frequently asked questions we have received about our skip hire service.
Corringham Skip Hire FAQs
Do I need permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Corringham?
Normally, it will be possible to get your skip positioned on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But in order to do this, you must get approval from the local authority in Corringham, which is known as a skip permit. We will order this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for this license, and it may sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?
When you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be in at the time the skip is delivered. You can then ensure that the lorry has total access and that the skip will be placed precisely where you want it. The same is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to company property, especially when gates limit access.
On the other hand, if this isn’t feasible, you don’t have to be concerned. Just let us know when you are placing your order, and then we will take care of the rest.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
The roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a substantial container that can be used to get rid of large volumes of waste. These bins are primarily for commercial use but can be used by domestic clients too. Having said that, you will want plenty of space since these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger when compared to the average skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.
Due to the size, these containers should only be used for light materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, and so they are not suited to disposing of concrete and bricks.
What is the cost of skip hire in Corringham?
This depends on the skip size you need and whether you will 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 costly and largest option is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used mainly in business settings.

What happens to the rubbish once the skip is picked up?
After you have finished filling your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste recycling facility in or local to Corringham where we segregate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
How big is a builder’s skip?
A builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. They are the biggest skips that can be hired to discard weighty building materials such as rock, concrete, rubble or soil.
A builder’s skip is great for a wide range of projects. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or cleaning the garage, these big containers are usually the most cost-effective solution available.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
Typically, you can have the skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you don’t have to hurry through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.
Am I able to throw away electronic products in my skip?
No, you cannot put old or broken electrical waste items in a skip. This includes things like laptops, cookers, washing machines, fridges and television sets. Electric objects can’t be thrown in a skip since they can include dangerous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot go to landfill and should be recycled.
Is it okay to fill up my skip higher than the level load line?
It is essential not to overload your skip. You should not pass the level load mark that is indicated on the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it is very hazardous to transport. This means that if you overfill your skip, you may be asked to take away the surplus waste. No matter how safe you believe the skip is, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This can be dangerous and is therefore not allowed.
What things can I put in the skip?
You are able to throw a wide array of waste types in the skip. This can include wood, floor tiles, plastics or concrete from a property clearance. Plant and bush clippings, top soil and rock from garden tasks are allowed also. Cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be discarded in the skip.
However, there are a few things that you are not allowed to put in a skip due to the possible environment or health risks they might cause.
You can’t throw out your refrigerator, television or your old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. All of these things include hazardous components in one type or another. They need to be discarded separately from general waste.
If you require hazardous waste removal, we may be able to schedule a separate collection for this material. Please email for additional information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you might be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers 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 materials, from house furniture and old baby toys to paving blocks and concrete. With a volume of approximately 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you needing to make numerous trips to your local recycling centre.
How many different skip sizes are available?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Corringham, you will have various sizes to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard container, sometimes called the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is great for modest house clearances and DIY jobs.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most common sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their big capacity also makes them great for household clearances involving large items like furniture and beds.
We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These sizes are only suited to lightweight waste, so they can’t be used to get rid of soil or concrete.

Will you deliver skips across Essex?
Yes. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we can supply skips to both domestic and commercial customers throughout Essex and anywhere else in the UK.
How long will it take to get a skip in Corringham?
We will ensure your skip is provided when required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the following day.
Although we are not able to guarantee an exact delivery time, we will always do our very best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
It is important to make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery attempt will in most cases incur a charge for the wasted trip.
Will a skip hire company from Corringham deliver my skip?
To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work with a variety of local and national businesses. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to supply customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.
Can I have a skip which has a drop down door?
Nearly all skip sizes can be delivered with a drop door, making them easy to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and then we can do our very best to accommodate.
A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the bin, particularly with weighty materials, like garden soil and bricks, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load large and bulky objects, such as furniture.
Other areas covered include Colchester, Southminster, Waltham Abbey, Braintree, Maldon, Loughton, Rochford and Hockley.
