East Ham Skip Hire FAQs

How large is a mini skip?

If you are looking for a low-cost skip to dispose of some domestic waste, the mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to handle numerous jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be placed on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.

Although most commonly chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can even handle smaller commercial jobs.

Is it ok to fill up my skip above the top?

Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this will make it unsafe to move, and you will probably have to empty any items above the level load line. This means you can not use sheets of timber, doors or some other item, since this will artificially increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal responsibility to make sure that containers are not overloaded or overweight before moving them.

Please make sure to hire the correct sized skip to suit your needs and get in contact if you are not sure which size you require. We will be glad to help.

What happens to the rubbish?

The contents of the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling facility. Here the rubbish will be segregated by machines and also by hand into various waste materials, like metal, paper, concrete and wood. Processing the waste in this way helps to increase the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is to maximise recycling and minimise the quantity of waste that has to go in landfill.

Do I have to be there when the skip is going to be delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is best to be at home when it is delivered. You can then make sure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip will be located precisely where you want it. This also is true if you have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly when gates restrict access.

However, if that is not achievable, you don’t need to stress. Simply let us know when making your booking, and we will take care of the rest.

What are the different skip sizes to select from?

We can provide a full range of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip excellent for small DIY projects and house clearances. A popular option for larger sized tasks, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard builders skip.

For East Ham companies which have a big quantity of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The phrase builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yd skip. The name comes from the fact that these are the most common sizes that are used by general builders and tradespeople.

These big skips are fantastic for numerous types of residential and industrial jobs. These are the largest size skips which you can use for heavy builders waste such as soil, stone and bricks.

Am I allowed to dispose of electronic products in my skip?

Electric powered products like televisions, freezers, fridges, computer systems, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous type of waste and so cannot be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered products need to be segregated from other waste. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly way.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in East Ham?

In the majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you want your skip to be situated on land outside of your business or house, you must get permission from your local authority in East Ham, which is referred to as a permit. If required, we will be glad to organise this for you, therefore it’s one less issue to think about.

It varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.

What sort of waste am I able to dispose of in a skip?

You are allowed to fill up the skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly produced from home clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include wood, soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, household furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.

What you throw in the skip would depend on which skip size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, when you will be using your skip for heavy building waste like rubble or soil, the maximum size you can use is the 8 cubic yard.

Some materials cannot be disposed of in a skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.

How long can I hire a skip for?

You can normally have your skip for up to 14 days from the date of delivery. You may provide a chosen pick up day when you place your order. Otherwise, you can let us know when you have loaded the skip, and then we will prepare your collection. Usually, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take slightly longer during busy times.

Do all skips have a drop down door?

For anybody who is getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop down door. This is made for getting rid of hefty building and construction rubbish, as it can be walked in to the skip with a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop down door, however these are generally less common. Simply because these sizes are generally small enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you require a drop door for your job, please tell us when placing your order. We will do our utmost to make sure a skip which has a drop door is provided.

How can I order a skip online?
