Edgware Skip Hire FAQs
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip?
When you have finished with your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste recycling facility either in or local to Edgware where we will segregate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
Will the skip come with a drop down door?
The vast majority of containers can be provided with a drop down door, making them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the container, particularly with weighty materials, like soil and bricks, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in large and bulky objects, such as household furniture.
Can I throw electrical items in the skip?
I’m afraid not, because electrical products including old TVs, cookers, pcs and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items must be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly way.
What is the process of hiring a skip in Edgware?
Hiring a skip in Edgware with us is incredibly straightforward. Choose the skip size you require and then input a couple of details about when and where you want your skip delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and then arrange to get your skip delivered.
What skip sizes can you supply?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Edgware, you will have various sizes to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard container, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is excellent for modest domestic clearances and DIY jobs.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most popular sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their big capacity also makes them great for house clearances including bulky objects such as household furniture and beds.
We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for customers with even larger waste disposal requirements. These skips are only suitable for light waste, so they cannot be hired to get rid of garden soil or stone.
For more information regarding the different capacities available, such as dimensions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Can you deliver to other areas in London?
Certainly. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we are able to supply skips to domestic and industrial customers across London and anywhere else in the UK.
What sort of waste am I able to get rid of in a skip?
You can use your skip to throw out a variety of waste types. We are experienced in picking up and processing a wide variety of materials from building jobs, garden landscaping and home tidy-ups. A few examples of allowed waste materials include things like:
- Home furnishings
- Hedge cuttings
- Top soil
- Bathroom suites
- Cabinets and units
Many materials are usually accepted, and therefore whether you need to dispose of furniture, plastic materials, wood or textiles, we can usually take your rubbish away.
The quantity and things you throw into the skip may vary depending on which size skip you ordered. Skips have a weight limit for safety. So if you want to discard soil and gravel, as an example, the biggest size you will be able to use is the 8 yard builders skip.
Is there anything that I can’t put in the skip?
There are several waste materials that you are not permitted to throw out in your skip. The main reason for this is that these items contain hazardous materials which could cause harm to the environment. They may also be dangerous to human health, and so they have to be disposed of separately under UK regulations.
A few of the things that are restricted include:
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas cylinders
- PC monitors
- Car tyres
How large is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a low cost skip to dispose of some domestic waste, a mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to take on many tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways 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 residential customers, the mini skip can even handle small commercial jobs.
Should I stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t have to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered, however it does help. Being home whenever the skip arrives means that you can make sure the delivery driver is given complete access and that your skip can be dropped precisely where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is delivered to a company premises, we will appreciate your help during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
Having said that, for those who can’t be available at the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask you to tell us when you place the order, and we will organise things from there.
Will a skip hire company from Edgware deliver my skip?
We use a network of both regional and nationwide skip hire companies to supply skips to our customers in Edgware and the rest of the UK. Our partner skip hire companies are approved and tested to ensure they meet our standards for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
What is the cost of skip hire in Edgware?
To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Edgware, insert your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you which sizes we provide in your area and how much each size costs to hire. If the skip is going to be on the road or any other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also need to be factored in.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Edgware?
In most cases, it is possible to get the skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But in order to do this, you need to have consent from your local council in Edgware, which is called a skip permit. We can arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The council will impose a fee for the license, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to approve this.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
If you run a company in Edgware and want to dispose of substantial amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a fantastic choice. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips that you can hire.
As the name indicates, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, as opposed to standard skips, that are picked up by using chains.
Is it ok to pile up the waste in my skip?
No, you can only load the skip up to the level load line. Loading waste materials up above this line makes it dangerous to move, and you may be told to take off the extra waste before the skip can be collected. This includes using doors, or any other objects to raise the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.
How long can I keep the skip for?
Typically, you can keep the skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you don’t have to rush through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded before the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to collect it as quickly as possible.
What is classed as a builder’s skip?
The term builders skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yd skip. The term originates from the fact that these are the most typical sizes that are hired by builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are fantastic for a multitude of residential and business jobs. These are the biggest skip sizes which you can use for heavy builders waste such as top soil, stone and gravel.
How quickly can you deliver a skip to Edgware?
We will ensure your skip is delivered when required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the very next day.
Although we cannot promise an exact delivery time, we will do our best to reach you within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You will need to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will in most cases incur a fee for the wasted journey.
