Eastbourne Skip Hire FAQs
What size is a builders skip?
A builders skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. They are the biggest skips that can be hired to dispose of heavy construction waste materials such as stone, concrete, gravel or clay.
A builders skip is perfect for a wide range of jobs. If you are having an extension built, renovating your bathroom or cleaning out your garden shed, these substantial containers will often be the most cost-effective solution available.
Which size skips can have a door?
The vast majority of skips can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them easy to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.
A skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the bin, particularly with heavy materials, like garden soil and concrete, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, like pieces of furniture.
What is a mini skip?
When you have a small quantity of waste to dispose of, a mini skip could be the ideal solution. What size is known as a mini skip is different from company to company, based on what sizes they provide.
2 cubic yards is probably the most common size for the mini skip. However, some firms opt to provide a 3 yard skip as their smallest option. The cost is based on the specific size you order, rather than the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are good for household tasks such as modest DIY projects and garage clean ups. If you need it placed on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
Can I load the skip above the level load line?
It is vital never to overfill your skip. You can not pass the level load line that is shown along the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it is very hazardous to move. This means that if you overload the skip, you may be required to remove the surplus rubbish. However secure you feel the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat materials to build up around the waste. This can be unsafe and is therefore prohibited.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
The roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a large skip that is used to dispose of large volumes of rubbish. These bins are predominantly for business use but can be hired by residential clients too. Having said that, you will need lots of room as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger when compared to the typical skip you will see on the side of the road.
Due to the size, roro skips should only be used for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not appropriate for disposing of concrete and rubble.
Will a skip hire company from Eastbourne deliver my skip?
A local skip hire company will most likely deliver your skip in Eastbourne. We work with a network of both local and nationwide providers to allow us to provide our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These firms are fully assessed to ensure they meet the high standards we demand when it comes to service, cost and environmental performance.
Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?
It usually is a good idea to be available when anyone delivers anything to your property. That enables you to make sure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be positioned precisely where you want it.
The same goes if you have a company. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.
Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.
How long can I keep the skip for?
The regular hire time frame will be 14 days from the delivery date. However, when you order your skip, you can let us know a pick up date that will work for you. Of course, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is full earlier than expected, contact us, and we will collect it as soon as possible.
Collections will usually be made within 48 hours. However, it is important to understand that this is not always the case at busy periods. Once collected, your waste will be taken to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed and sorted.
What waste materials am I allowed to put in a skip?
Before you hire your skip, you must check that the sort of waste materials you want to discard will be allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials need to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types it is possible to discard in a skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use a skip to dispose of building and demolition waste, such as old bricks, top soil, rubble, metals and concrete.
Examples of forbidden items include things like electrical items, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently need to be disposed of separately from any general waste.
How quickly can you deliver a skip in Eastbourne?
We will ensure your skip is delivered on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the very next day.
Although we cannot promise an exact delivery time, we will do our very best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
It is important to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will most likely incur a fee for the wasted journey.
What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Eastbourne?
Hiring a skip should not be difficult. That is why we have made the order process as simple as possible. First, enter your delivery postcode to see the range of skips we can deliver to Eastbourne. Pick the size you would like to order, and confirm if it will be located on private property. Enter in your information and then make payment using our secure payment platform.
Once your order is done, we will send a confirmation email with all your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
What happens to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into different waste streams, including timber, metals, plastics, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Eastbourne?
Our goal is to offer the lowest priced skip hire service in Eastbourne. The price you pay will, naturally, be determined by the size of skip you hire. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you need to have your skip situated on the road or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the added price of a skip permit.
Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?
No, you can not put old or broken electrical waste items in a skip. This can include things such as laptops or computers, microwaves, dishwashers, refrigerators and monitors. Electrical items can’t be discarded in your skip because they can include dangerous materials and components.
As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot be sent to landfill and should be recycled.
Do you deliver to other areas in East Sussex?
In addition to delivering skips to Eastbourne, we also deliver to other towns and villages within East Sussex. With the help of a network of local and national waste management companies, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering in Eastbourne, Hailsham or Hastings, we have got you covered.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
We supply a full-range of skip sizes to meet your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip great for small DIY jobs and household clearances. A popular choice for bigger jobs, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Eastbourne firms with a big volume of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Eastbourne?
If possible, you want to have the skip left on a hard surface. For anybody who is doing a domestic task, then the drive is going to be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. On the other hand, if neither option is available, the street or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public land, you have got to get a permit from the local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be placed on the road, grass verge or other public property in Eastbourne. If this is required, we will request the permit to be granted on your behalf. An additional charge, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your skip.
