What waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?
It is possible to fill your skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly produced from loft clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This may include wood, soil, rubble, hedge trimmings, household furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you put in your skip depends on the size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight restriction. For example, in the event that you are using a skip for heavy construction waste like stone or dirt, the maximum size you can hire is an 8 yard skip.
Some materials cannot be disposed of in the skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.
What are the different skip sizes available?
We provide a full variety of skip capacities to household and commercial clients throughout the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the humble 2 yard mini skip to the massive 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Here are the various sized skips on offer, with a rough idea of how much rubbish each skip can hold:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags

Am I able to put electronic items in the skip?
No, you can not dispose of old electrical waste products in your skip. This can include items like computers, cookers, dishwashers, refrigerators and computer monitors. Electronic items can’t be discarded in a skip as they can include dangerous materials and components.
Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.
What is a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is the most frequent skip hired throughout the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builder’s skip is great for most building and demolition projects, which is where the label originates from.
The 8 yard builders skip is the largest size which can be used for hefty waste materials including soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.
Am I allowed to pile up waste in my skip?
It is essential never to overfill a skip. You must not pass the level load mark that is shown along the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it becomes very unsafe to move. Which means that when you overload the skip, you might be required to take off the surplus waste. No matter how secure you feel the skip is, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat materials to build up around the waste. This is dangerous and is therefore not allowed.
Will my skip be supplied with a drop door?
Generally speaking, almost all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, depending on size, availability and area. If you require a drop door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip that has a drop door is mainly beneficial when you are choosing a large builder’s skip, since it allows you to wheelbarrow your waste into the skip. This is not as important for mini and midi skips, as they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How long can I hire the skip for?
The regular hire time frame is a fortnight from the date of delivery. Having said that, at the time you book your skip, you can provide a collection date that is perfect for you. Of course, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your project will take. So if the skip is full sooner than anticipated, let us know, and we will get it picked up as quickly as possible.
We can normally be out to get your skip within 48 hours. But, it is important to understand that this may not always be possible at busier periods. Once collected, your waste will be taken to a local waste transfer centre, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
The rubbish in your skip will be taken to a local waste recycling station. Here the rubbish will be sorted by machinery and also by hand into numerous waste streams, including metal, cardboard, concrete and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to increase the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the quantity of waste that has to go in landfill.
Do you deliver to other areas in London?
We provide a national skip hire and recycling service using a network of verified and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you are interested in skip hire in Coulsdon, Brent, Feltham, Dulwich or any other area in London, we can assist.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?
No, you don’t have to be home when we deliver your skip. Providing we can access where you want it delivered, we will take care of everything.
In the event you will not be at home, just provide us with any relevant delivery directions when you book the order. For instance, you may prefer the skip to be dropped at a particular part of the driveway. Or you may want to be sure that the skip doesn’t hinder entry to your garage.
Whatever the case may be, simply let us know when ordering, and then we will make sure the directions will be passed to the delivery driver.
Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Coulsdon?
Ideally, you want to have the skip dropped on a hard surface. When you are doing a household project, then the driveway is going to be ideal. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. On the other hand, if neither option is available, the street or grass verge could be your only option. As this is public land, you will have to get a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be positioned on a street, grass verge as well as other public property in Coulsdon. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be issued on your behalf. An extra cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.
How quick can you deliver a skip in Coulsdon?
We can usually supply skips to Coulsdon the next working day when your order is placed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking system offers you a range of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you would like the skip to arrive ASAP or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
Who will deliver my skip?
To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work in partnership with a wide range of local and nationwide businesses. This allows us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we can provide customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container that can be used to get rid of huge volumes of waste materials. In the majority of cases, these type of containers are used for business uses. However, domestic customers may also use them. You will need to look at the space they will take up, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they should only be used for light-weight waste including paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of dirt and hardcore.
What is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a cheap skip to get rid of some household rubbish, the mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to tackle numerous tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be located on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit.
Although most often chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can even be used for small commercial jobs.
Other areas covered include Brent, Feltham, Dulwich, Richmond, Hackney, Westminster, Forest Hill and Buckhurst Hill.
