Edenbridge Skip Hire FAQs
Am I allowed to dispose of all types of waste in a skip?
It is possible to throw a variety of rubbish into your skip. This can include timber, ceramic tiles, metal or concrete from a household clearance. Shrub and bush cuttings, top soil and stone from garden work is permitted also. Worktops from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be discarded in your skip.
However, there are some materials that you cannot put in a skip due to the potential environment or health risks they might trigger.
You cannot throw out your fridge freezer, computer or car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. All of these things incorporate hazardous materials in one type or another. They should be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.
Should you require hazardous waste removal, we may be able to schedule a separate service for this waste. Feel free to email for additional information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling centre.
Do I have to be home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
It is always best if you can be in when anybody delivers something to your house. That allows you to make sure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be placed precisely where you need it.
The same thing goes if you have a business. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?
No, you are only allowed to fill up your skip up to the level load line. Loading waste up over this line would make it unsafe to move, and you could be asked to take away the extra waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes using doors, or any other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.
What size is a mini skip?
For those who have a small amount of rubbish to throw out, a mini skip may be the ideal option. What size is identified as a mini skip is different from company to company, dependant upon what sizes they provide.
2 cubic yards is probably the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some companies choose to have a 3 cubic yard skip for their smallest option. The price is based on the particular size you order, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are good for domestic work like modest DIY projects and shed clean ups. If you need it positioned on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
Typically, you can have your skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you don’t have to hurry through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.
How much waste will a builders skip hold?
The builder’s skip is the most common skip that is hired in the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builder’s skip is great for most building and construction tasks, which is where the name comes from.
The 8 yd builders skip will be the biggest option that can be used for hefty waste materials including dirt, concrete, bricks and gravel.
How soon can you deliver a skip to Edenbridge?
When your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it for you on a date that suits you. We will usually provide a next day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip placed on private property, as to be on public property (for example a street), you must obtain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.
Due to several factors that could impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can anticipate it turning up in a AM or PM slot.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
The roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a huge skip used to dispose of large quantities of waste. These bins are predominantly for industrial use but can be used by domestic customers also. Having said that, you will require a lot of space because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger than the typical skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
Due to the size, roro containers can only be used for light-weight materials like plastics, wood and paper, so they are not appropriate for getting rid of soil and rubble.
How do I order a skip?
This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you want to hire. Tell us if the skip shall be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or on council property (like the street). Then, select the day you would like your skip to be delivered. Check your order and make payment with our secure online payment system. All done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Edenbridge on the date you have chosen.
How many different skip sizes are there?
Our company offers a complete range of skip capacities to domestic and commercial clients all over the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the modest 2 yard mini skip to the enormous 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Below are the different skip sizes you can choose from, with a rough idea of how much rubbish each skip is capable of holding:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Edenbridge?
Our goal is to give you the lowest priced skip hire service in Edenbridge. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip that you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have your skip positioned on the highway or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the added expense of the skip permit.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
Getting a skip which has a drop down door helps make loading waste into the skip a lot easier. This is especially the case with heavy materials like soil and stone, which can then be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make disposing of big bulky items like pieces of furniture easier too.
The majority of skips can be provided with a drop door, although it will sometimes depend on your location and availability. Let us know when you make your booking if a drop door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.
Who will deliver my skip?
A local skip firm will likely deliver your skip in Edenbridge. We utilize a network of both regional and nationwide businesses to enable us to provide our service to customers across the whole of the UK. These companies are fully vetted to make sure they fulfill the high principles we require with regards to customer service, cost and environmental performance.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Edenbridge?
Ideally, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface area. If you are doing a household project, then your drive will be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, if neither option is available, the street or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public land, you need to obtain a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be placed on a road, grass verge or any other public property in Edenbridge. If this is required, we will request the license to be issued on your behalf. An additional cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
Where will my rubbish go when the skip is picked up?
Once you have finished filling up your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste recycling facility in or local to Edenbridge where we separate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
Will you deliver to other areas in Kent?
Along with delivering our range of skips to Edenbridge, we also deliver to other towns and villages across Kent. Through our network of regional and national skip hire and recycling businesses, we provide a totally nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Edenbridge, Ramsgate or Sheerness, we have got it covered.
Can I throw electrical items in my skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, since electrical products like old televisions, cookers, laptops and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items have to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly fashion.
