East Grinstead Skip Hire FAQs
What waste materials can I put in a skip?
Before hiring your skip, it is important to check that the kind of rubbish you need to get rid of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials must be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you can put in a skip include household items like furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You could also use a skip to dispose of building and demolition waste, like wood, soil, rubble, metals and gravel.
Some examples of forbidden items include things like electrical items, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. These are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently must be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.
How large is a mini skip?
If you have a small amount of rubbish to throw out, the mini skip could be the perfect solution. What size is called a mini skip differs from business to business, according to what sizes they provide.
The most popular size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies opt to have a 3 yard container as their smallest option. Price depends on the particular size you order, rather than the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are best for residential tasks including small DIY projects and garage clean ups. If you need it positioned on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
How long can I hire the skip for?
You can usually keep a skip for up to two weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the collection will be as convenient as possible, you have the choice of offering a preferred collection day when making your order.
Alternatively, just let us know when you have finished with your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the next working day.
It may take a little longer to collect your skip during busy periods, but we will always try to be there as swiftly as possible.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are big commercial size skips that are used mainly within the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for companies that produce large amounts of waste materials.
Do you deliver skips across West Sussex?
Sure, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skips to areas across West Sussex, including East Grinstead, Bognor Regis, Southwick and Worthing. So regardless of where you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
Will a East Grinstead skip hire company deliver my skip?
Since we provide a nationwide waste management service, we utilise a diverse network of verified and approved companies. These include small family-run skip hire companies to national waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to guarantee they satisfy our high customer service and environmental requirements.
What will happen to the rubbish?
When you have finished with your skip, we come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste recycling centre either in or local to East Grinstead where we will sort the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
Is it ok to load my skip above the level load mark?
No, you can only fill up your skip up to the level load line. Stacking rubbish up above this line will make it unsafe to transport, and you might be asked to take away the surplus waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes using doors, or other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and it could also make it overweight.
How can I order a skip?
Hiring a skip in East Grinstead with us is incredibly simple. Select the skip size you want and input a couple of details about when and where you want your skip delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and arrange to have your skip delivered.
Am I able to get a skip with a drop door?
In general, the majority of skips can be provided with a hinged door, dependant upon the size, availability and area. If you want a drop door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip with a drop door is mainly useful when you are hiring a large builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow waste materials into the skip. This is not as important for mini skips, since they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
Skips are offered in a selection of different sizes to suit different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is great for small residential jobs.
Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold approximately 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yard is a good choice for loft clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
For those who have a more substantial waste disposal job to undertake, a builder’s skip may be the most suitable choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name indicates, these are the most popular sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, including clay and hardcore. However they can just as well be hired for domestic rubbish such as broken furniture or kitchen units.
We can also deliver 10-16 yard bins and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in East Grinstead?
To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in East Grinstead, type in your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you which sizes we provide in your area 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.
If I require a skip on the road in East Grinstead, will I need to have a permit?
This depends on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a permit if it is placed on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if the skip is on private property, like a drive or on your business premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Just tell us as part of the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can place your skip on your own property, it will save you some money.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is always best to be at home at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can make sure the lorry has full access and that the skip can be situated precisely where you need it. This also is applicable if you have a skip delivered to company property, especially when gates limit access.
Having said that, if this isn’t feasible, you don’t need to stress. Simply tell us when making your order, and then we will take care of everything.
How fast can you deliver a skip in East Grinstead?
Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a day that suits you. We will typically provide a following day delivery service for orders arranged prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip on private property, since to be on public property (such as a road), you must get a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.
As a result of numerous factors that may impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it turning up within a morning or afternoon slot.
What size is a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most frequently used for building and demolition jobs. There are typically two skip sizes that may be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins that can be used to dispose of substantial amounts of building and demolition materials, such as soil, rubble and rock.
Although labelled a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for various other domestic and commercial waste disposal jobs.
Am I able to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
No, you can not put old electrical waste products in a skip. This includes items like printers, microwaves, washing machines, freezers and monitors. These products can’t be thrown in a skip because they can have hazardous materials and components.
Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot go to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
