East London Skip Hire FAQs
Who will deliver my skip?
We use a network of both local and nationwide skip hire firms to deliver skips to our customers in East London and the rest of the country. Our partner skip hire companies are approved and evaluated to make certain they match our standards for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?
You don’t have to be home when your skip is being delivered, but it does help. Being there when the skip arrives means that you can ensure the driver is given full access and that the skip can be placed precisely where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is delivered to your business property, we will appreciate your assistance during the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
Having said that, in the event you can’t be around for delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you place your order, and then we will arrange things from there.
How long can I hire a skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to two weeks. Usually, that will provide you with plenty of time to load your skip. However, if you do need a bit more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Of course, in the event you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your pick up. Just let us know once you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.
What is the process of hiring a skip in East London?
Hiring a skip shouldn’t be difficult. That is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, enter in your address to view the range of skip sizes we are able to deliver to East London. Select the size you would like to hire, and confirm whether it will be dropped on your own property. Enter in your information and then make payment using our secure online payment platform.
After your order is done, we will send a confirmation email with your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
What sort of rubbish am I able to put in a skip?
Prior to hiring your skip, you must make sure that the sort of waste materials you need to dispose of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials have to be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Waste types you could put in your skip include household goods like furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You can also use a skip to discard building and demolition rubbish, like timber, top soil, stone, metals and concrete.
Examples of forbidden items include things like electronic items, tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently need to be disposed of separately from general waste.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container used to transport significant amounts of waste. In the majority of cases, these containers are hired for business applications. However, domestic clients can also use them. It is very important think about the area they will take up, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they must only be used for light-weight waste like plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of dirt and rubble.
Where will my waste be taken to once the skip is collected?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The waste will get segregated into a variety of waste types, including wood, soil and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish can be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Can I get rid of electronic items in my skip?
Electronic objects including TVs, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous waste and therefore cannot be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric products have to be segregated from other materials. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly way.
How much waste will the mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small containers are ideal for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.
They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and old toys to paving slabs and concrete. Having a total capacity of about 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip could save you needing to make numerous trips to your local recycling centre.
How many different skip sizes are there?
We offer a complete range of skip sizes to domestic and industrial clients throughout the UK. We have a skip to match all needs – from the modest 2 cubic yard mini skip to the massive 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Here are the various sizes to choose from, with a rough guide to how much waste each size is capable of holding:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
- 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags

When will my skip be delivered?
We can in most cases deliver skips to East London the following working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking program provides you with various delivery dates to pick from. So whether you want a skip delivered ASAP or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in East London?
This depends on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need a skip permit if it is put on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if your skip will be on private property, such as a driveway or on your business premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us during the order process, and then we can make the necessary arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can have your skip on your own land, you will save a few pounds.
Is it okay to load my skip above the top?
It is important not to overfill a skip. You should not pass the level load mark indicated along the side of the skip. When the skip is overloaded, it is very hazardous to transport. This means that if you overfill the skip, you may be required to take away the surplus rubbish. However secure you believe the skip is, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat materials to build up around the waste. This is dangerous and is prohibited.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
Nearly all skip sizes can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them easy to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.
A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the container, particularly with heavy materials, like garden soil and concrete, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky items, such as household furniture.
Can you deliver to other areas in London?
In addition to delivering skips to East London, we also deliver to other towns and villages across London. With the help of our network of local and national skip hire businesses, we provide a totally nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to a house or business in East London, Brixton or Feltham, we have got you covered.
How much does skip hire in East London cost?
Our goal is to give you the cheapest skip hire service in East London. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip you hire. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you want to have a skip situated on the highway or other council property, you will also have to factor in the added price of the skip permit.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yd skip. The term stems from the fact that they are the most common sizes used by general builders and tradespeople.
These large containers are great for numerous domestic and commercial projects. These are the largest size skips that you can use for weighty builders waste including dirt, stone and gravel.
