Dagenham Skip Hire FAQs
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Dagenham?
Preferably, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface. For anybody who is carrying out a household job, then the driveway is going to be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. However, when neither is available, the street or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public property, you have got to get a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be placed on the road, grass verge or other public property in Dagenham. If this is required, we will arrange for the permit to be issued on your behalf. An extra fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
How long does it take to get a skip in Dagenham?
We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we can’t promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we try to provide a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery area, as failed delivery attempts will result in a charge for the wasted trip.
Do I have to be home when the skip is delivered?
It is always best if you can be in when anyone delivers anything to your property. That allows you to ensure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be dropped precisely where you need it.
The same thing applies if you have a business. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.
Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.
Where will you take the waste from my skip?
The materials in your skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling facility. Here the rubbish will be segregated by machines and also by hand into numerous waste materials, like metal, cardboard, hardcore and wood. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to maximise the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.

What is the cost of skip hire in Dagenham?
Our goal is to provide you with the cheapest skip hire service in Dagenham. The price you pay will, of course, depend upon the size of skip that you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have the skip located on the street or other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the additional price of a skip permit.
Is it okay to load the skip higher than the top?
It is very important to not overload your skip, as you risk being asked to take off excessive waste before it can be collected. Regardless of what size you hire, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, since transporting an overloaded skip is unsafe, as objects could drop and cause injury or damage to others.
To prevent this issue, please ensure you order a size suited to your waste disposal needs. If your skip is full but you have extra waste to get rid of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
A builders skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These will be the largest containers used to dispose of substantial building and construction waste materials such as rock, concrete, rubble or soil.
A builders skip is great for a number of jobs. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing the garage, these substantial containers tend to be the most affordable solution available.
Can I throw all sorts of rubbish in a skip?
Before hiring your skip, you must ensure that the sort of waste you want to discard will be allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials must be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Waste types it is possible to put in your skip include home items like furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You could also use your skip to dispose of building and demolition waste, like wood, top soil, stone, metals and gravel.
Examples of restricted items include electrical products, tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and therefore need to be disposed of separately from general rubbish.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small containers are fantastic for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and old toys to paving blocks and bricks. Having a volume of approximately 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make multiple trips to the local recycling centre.
Will a skip hire company from Dagenham deliver my skip?
Since we offer a UK-wide skip service, we utilise an extensive network of approved businesses. These include small local skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to make sure they meet our high customer service and environmental requirements.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
You can usually keep the skip for up to 14 days from the date of delivery. It is possible to give a chosen pick up date when you place your order. Otherwise, you can let us know when you have finished with the skip, and we will plan your collection. Normally, this will be the next working day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer over hectic periods.
What is the process of ordering a skip in Dagenham?
Ordering a skip in Dagenham with us is incredibly simple. Decide on the skip size you will need and enter a couple of details about where and when you would like your skip delivered. After that you can pay for the skip using our secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and then schedule to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
Will you deliver skips across London?
In addition to delivering skips and containers to Dagenham, we also deliver to other towns and villages across London. With the help of a network of local and national skip hire and recycling companies, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to a house or business in Dagenham, Finchley or Feltham, we have got you covered.
Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
Electrical products including televisions, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous waste type and so can not be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical items should be segregated from other materials. This helps ensure they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly way.
Will my skip have a drop down door?
Typically, most skips can be supplied with a hinged door, dependant upon the size, availability and location. If you require a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip that has a drop door is mainly beneficial when choosing a large builder’s skip, as it enables you to wheelbarrow rubbish straight into the skip. This is not as important for mini and midi skips, because they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container that can be used to transport large amounts of waste materials. Predominantly, these skips are used for industrial applications. However, household customers can also order them. It is very important think about the area they take up, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be hired for light-weight materials including paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of soil and stone.
