Crawley Skip Hire FAQs
What types of waste am I allowed to get rid of in a skip?
You can use a skip to discard a variety of waste types. We are experienced in collecting and handling lots of items generated from building work, garden landscaping and property tidy-ups. Examples of permitted waste products include:
- Home furniture
- Tree trimmings
- Bathroom sinks
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Most waste materials will be accepted, so whether you would like to get rid of metals, plastic materials, timber or textiles, we can usually take your rubbish away.
The quantity and things you discard in your skip may vary depending on the size skip you hired. All skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So if you want to dispose of garden soil and rubble, as an example, the largest size you will be allowed to hire is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
What type of materials am I not allowed to put in the skip?
There are a few waste materials you will not be allowed to put in the skip. The reason behind this is that some items include hazardous components that may cause damage to the environment. They can even be damaging to human health, and so they must be discarded separately within UK legislation.
A few examples of the goods that are restricted include:
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas cylinders
- PC screens
- Battery packs
- Car tyres
- Chemical substances
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Crawley?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only require a skip permit when it is placed on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit if the skip is on private property, like a drive or inside your business premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just let us know during the order process, and then we can make the required arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can position your skip on private land, you will save a few pounds.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
Typically, you can keep the skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you do not need to rush through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.
Where will you take the rubbish from my skip?
Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into the various waste materials, like timber, metals, paper, etc. This makes sure that as much of the rubbish as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What size is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a cheap skip to get rid of some household waste, a mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to handle many jobs.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be positioned on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit.
Although most often hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can even tackle smaller commercial jobs.
What is classed as being a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most often supplied for building and construction jobs. There are typically two different sizes which can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to get rid of large amounts of construction and demolition waste, like garden soil, rubble and rock.
Although branded a builder’s skip, these can be used for various other residential and industrial waste disposal tasks.
When will my skip be delivered?
When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the following day. In some instances, we will even provide a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed during the order process.
What size skips have a drop door?
Nearly all skip sizes can be provided with a drop down door, making them easy to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you require a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the bin, particularly with heavy materials, such as soil and bricks, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in large and bulky items, like furniture.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Crawley?
The cost of hiring a skip in Crawley will depend on the size of skip you need. The least expensive option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you want a larger skip, like an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also be more if you need to have a skip positioned on the road, since you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you provide?
The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container used to dispose of large quantities of waste. Mostly, these type of skips are used for business purposes. Having said that, residential customers can also order them. It is very important look at the space they will take up, since they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they must only be used for light waste like paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of soil and stone.
How can I hire a skip?
This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you would like to hire. Tell us if the skip will be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or on public property (like the road). After that, choose the date you need your skip to be delivered. Check your order details and make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. That’s it! We will deliver your skip to Crawley on the date you have chosen.

We make use of a network of both local and nationwide providers to allow us to provide our service to domestic and business customers across the whole of the UK. These companies are fully assessed to ensure they match the high standards we demand with regards to service, cost and environmental performance.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be at home at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure that the lorry has complete access and that the skip will be placed precisely where you need it. This also is true for those who have a skip delivered to company property, especially if gates limit access.
Having said that, when this is not possible, you don’t need to stress. Simply let us know when you are making your order, and we will take care of everything.
Am I allowed to load my skip higher than the top?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this makes it unsafe to transport, and you will then have to remove any materials higher than the level load mark. This means that you can not make use of sheets of timber, doors or any other item, since this will increase the height of the skip. We have a legal duty to make sure that bins are not overfilled or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure to select the correct sized skip to meet your needs and get in contact if you are unsure which size you need. We will be happy to help.
Am I able to get rid of electrical items in my skip?
No, you cannot throw old electronic waste items in your skip. This can include such things as printers, microwaves, tumble dryers, fridges and monitors. Electric products can’t be thrown in your skip as they can contain hazardous materials and components.
Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.
Other areas covered include Shoreham-by-Sea, Selsey, Worthing, Cuckfield, Hassocks, Southwick, Chichester and Steyning.
