Croydon Skip Hire FAQs

What will happen to my rubbish when the skip is collected?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get separated into a range of waste types, including timber, soil and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the waste can be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

How long can I keep a skip for?

You can normally keep the skip for as long as two weeks from your date of delivery. You may provide a preferred collection date at the time you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can let us know after you have finished with the skip, and then we will prepare your collection. Usually, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take a little longer during hectic periods.

How much waste will fit in the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size available from skip companies and is designed for small DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of waste.

Instead of a 2 yard skip, some firms offer you a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.

Can you deliver skips across London?

Yes. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we can supply skips to both residential and commercial customers throughout London and anywhere else within the UK.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered?

When you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be in when it is delivered. You can then make sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip can be located exactly where you need it. This also is applicable if you have a skip delivered to company property, especially if gates restrict access.

However, if that isn’t feasible, you don’t have to worry. Simply tell us when you are placing your order, and then we will take care of the rest.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the following day. Sometimes, we can even provide a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days are confirmed during the order process.

Can I fill the skip higher than the level load mark?

Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this makes it unsafe to transport, and you will then be asked to empty any contents higher than the level load mark. This means that you are not allowed to use sheets of wood, doors or some other object, since this will increase the height of the skip. We have a legal duty to make sure that containers aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.

Please be sure to choose the correct sized skip to meet your needs and get in contact if you are not sure which size is best. We would be glad to help.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

As the name suggests, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most commonly hired for construction work. There are usually two sizes which can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips which can be used to dispose of significant volumes of building and demolition waste, such as dirt, concrete and bricks.

Although they are labelled a builders skip, these can of course be used for various other residential and business waste disposal tasks.

Am I allowed to dispose of all sorts of waste in my skip?

It is possible to fill your skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly produced from home clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include wood, dirt, concrete, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.

What you throw in the skip depends on the size you have hired, because there is a weight restriction. For example, when you are using a skip for heavy construction waste such as bricks or soil, the largest size you could hire is the 8 yard skip.

Some materials cannot be disposed of in the skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.

How can I hire a skip online?

This is the easy part. First, choose the skip size you would like to hire. Let us know if the skip is going to be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or on local authority property (such as the road). After that, pick the day you want your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and make payment using our secure online payment platform. All done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Croydon on the date you have chosen.

Can I dispose of electrical products in my skip?

No, you can not put old electronic waste items in a skip. This can include such things as computers, cookers, dishwashers, refrigerators and television sets. Electronic items can’t be thrown in your skip as they can contain hazardous materials and components.

Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.

How many different skip sizes are there?

We provide a wide selection of skip sizes to match your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip suitable for small DIY jobs and house clearances. A popular choice for larger sized tasks, renovations and building work is the 8 yard builders skip.

For Croydon companies which have a significant volume of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Croydon?

Our aim is to provide you with the lowest priced skip hire service in Croydon. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip that you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you need to have your skip positioned on the highway or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the additional price of the skip permit.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container used to dispose of huge amounts of waste. Mostly, these type of containers are hired for commercial applications. Having said that, residential clients may also use them. It is important to think about the area they will take up, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they must only be utilised for light-weight materials like paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of soil and rubble.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Croydon?

In most cases, it is possible to get the skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to do this, you will need to get consent from your local authority in Croydon, which is known as a skip permit. We will organise this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for your license, and it will sometimes take 24-2 days for them to authorise this.

Is it possible to get a skip which has a drop door?

Having a skip which has a drop down door makes loading waste into the skip so much easier. This is especially true with heavy waste like garden soil or hardcore, which can then be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading up large bulky items like pieces of furniture a lot easier also.

The majority of skips can be provided with a drop door, but it will sometimes depend upon area and availability. Let us know when placing your online order if a drop door is required, and we will do our best to supply this.

Will a Croydon skip hire company deliver my skip?

We work with a network of both local and national businesses to allow us to provide our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These businesses are comprehensively assessed to make certain they satisfy the high expectations we require regarding customer service, cost and environmental performance.
