Dulwich Skip Hire FAQs

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Dulwich?

To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in Dulwich, type in your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you which sizes we provide in your location and how much each option will cost you to order. If your skip will be on the street or any other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also need to be factored in.

Can you deliver to other areas in London?

Absolutely. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we are able to deliver skips to residential and industrial customers throughout London and elsewhere in the UK.

What size is a mini skip?

For those who have a small quantity of waste to throw out, the mini skip might be the ideal solution. What size is referred to as a mini skip differs from company to company, dependant upon what sizes they supply.

The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies opt to have a 3 cubic yard container as their smallest option. The cost depends on the particular size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are perfect for domestic jobs such as small DIY projects and garage clean ups. If you need it put on your driveway and need room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.

Is it okay to fill the skip higher than the top?

You should not fill up the skip beyond the level load mark. If you fill it over the tip of this mark, it means that the skip is not safe and secure to transport, and you could be asked to remove any extra waste before it can be picked up.

Where do you take the waste from my skip?

When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into various waste materials, including timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

If you have a business in Dulwich and want to get rid of substantial quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container might be a fantastic choice. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips available.

As the name suggests, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, unlike normal skips, that are picked up by using chains.

Will a skip hire company from Dulwich deliver my skip?

As we offer a national skip hire service, we use an extensive network of verified and approved companies. These include small family-run skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to ensure they match our high customer service and environmental requirements.

What is classed as being a builder’s skip?

As the name suggests, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most commonly hired for building and construction jobs. There are generally two skip sizes which can be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins which you can use to get rid of large quantities of construction and demolition waste, like garden soil, rubble and rock.

Although labelled a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for a number of other residential and industrial waste disposal tasks.

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

You can generally hire a skip for up to a fortnight from the date that it is delivered. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you have the option of offering a preferred collection time when you place your order.

Otherwise, simply tell us when you’ve finished with the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the following working day.

It could take a little while longer to collect your skip over busy periods, however we will always endeavour to be there as quickly as possible.

Will my skip have a drop down door?

When you are selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop door. This is great for disposing of heavy building and construction waste, as it can be walked in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop-down door, although these are more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are generally small enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you need a drop door for your job, tell us when placing your order. We will do our very best to make sure a container that has a drop door is provided.

Am I allowed to get rid of electronic items in my skip?

I’m afraid it is not permitted, because electrical items including old televisions, refrigerators, printers and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects need to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly fashion.

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

In most cases, it will be possible to get your skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to do this, you need to have permission from the local authority in Dulwich, which is called a skip permit. We can order this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for the permit, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.

What is the process of ordering a skip in Dulwich?

We have built our booking process with speed and simplicity in mind. Step one is to type in your postcode to check out all the different skip sizes we can deliver in Dulwich. Select the best size to meet your requirements and provide the details of where and when you want your skip to be delivered.

What sizes do skips come in?

We are able to supply a full-range of skip sizes to meet your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip perfect for small DIY projects and household clearances. A common choice for larger sized tasks, refurbishments and building work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

For Dulwich businesses which generate a large amount of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What sort of waste can you put in a skip?

You are allowed to throw a wide array of rubbish into your skip. This can include timber, bathroom tiles, metal or concrete from a property clearance. Plant and bush clippings, top soil and stone from garden jobs are allowed as well. Dated units from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also go in your skip.

However, there are a few items that you can’t put in a skip because of the potential environment or health risk they can cause.

You cannot throw in your refrigerator, laptop or old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. All of these things incorporate hazardous materials in one kind or another. They should be discarded separately from general waste.

If you want hazardous waste removal, we might be able to schedule a separate collection for this waste. Please contact us for further information. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.

When will my skip be delivered?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a day that best suits you. We can normally provide a next day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, since to go on public property (for example a road), you will need to obtain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to arrange.

As a result of many factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it turning up within a morning or afternoon slot.

Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?

If you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be there at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can be sure the lorry has full access and that the skip can be placed precisely where you need it. The same is true when you have a skip delivered to company property, particularly if gates restrict access.

On the other hand, when this isn’t possible, you don’t need to be concerned. Just let us know when placing your order, and then we will handle the rest.

Other areas covered include Dagenham, Ealing, Balham, Westminster, Catford, Bromley, Richmond and Finchley.
