Edmonton Skip Hire FAQs
Can you deliver skips across London?
Of course, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver skips to locations throughout London, such as Edmonton, London, Fulham and Finchley. So regardless of where you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
Can I get rid of electronic items in my skip?
No, you cannot put old or broken electronic waste products in your skip. This includes items like laptops or computers, hobs, dishwashers, freezers and tv sets. Electrical products can’t be thrown in a skip as they can include dangerous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot be sent to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?
The builder’s skip is regarded as the popular skip which is used across the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builders skip is perfect for most building and construction work, which is where the name comes from.
The 8 yard builders skip will be the biggest option which you can use for heavy materials like soil, concrete, rock and rubble.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
If you run a company in Edmonton and wish to dispose of large amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container could be a great choice. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal containers on the market.
As the name indicates, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, as opposed to normal skips, that are lifted using chains.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Edmonton?
To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work in partnership with a variety of local and national businesses. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to make sure we can supply customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We can in most cases deliver skips to Edmonton the next working day when your order is made before 3pm. This is applicable to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking platform gives you a range of delivery dates to select from. So whether you need your skip delivered asap or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
Should I be in when the skip will be delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be in on the day it is delivered. Then you can make sure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip will be positioned precisely where you want it. The same is applicable if you have a skip delivered to company premises, particularly when gates limit access.
On the other hand, if that isn’t possible, you don’t need to be concerned. Just let us know when you are making your order, and we will handle everything.
Will my skip have a drop door?
Getting a skip that has a drop down door makes loading rubbish into it so much easier. This is particularly true with heavy materials like garden soil or concrete, which can then be loaded straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading large bulky items such as pieces of furniture a lot easier also.
Most skips can be supplied with a drop down door, although this can sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when making your order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our very best to provide this.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
The standard hire time frame will be 14 days from the date of delivery. Having said that, when you order your skip, you can tell us a pick up date that is best for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if your skip is finished with earlier than anticipated, tell us, and we will get it removed as soon as possible.
We will usually be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. But, it is important to understand that this is not always the case during busier periods. Once collected, the skip will be taken to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed and sorted.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Edmonton?
In most cases, it is possible to have your skip positioned on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But in order to do this, you need to have consent from the local authority in Edmonton, which is known as a skip permit. We will arrange this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council do impose a fee for your permit, and it will sometimes take 24-2 days for them to approve this.
What types of waste am I allowed to dispose of in a skip?
This is one of the most frequent questions people have about our skip hire service. The main thing to keep in mind is that you may fill up your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are so many kinds of waste which can result from garden work, building work and house clearances.
Some of the most typical items that we collect in skips include dirt, timber, bush trimmings, cupboards, sinks, and various other household products.
However, there are some things that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. This consists of any electronic products (fridges, monitors and cookers for example), old car tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials, and so disposing of them has to follow a completely different procedure to ensure they do not cause harm to the environment.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
We can offer a full-range of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip great for small DIY jobs and household clearances. A common choice for bigger projects, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard skip.
For Edmonton companies which have a big quantity of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What happens to the rubbish in my skip?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets separated into various waste types, which includes wood, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection can be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to minimising environmental impact by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
What is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a low-cost skip to dispose of some domestic waste, the mini skip could 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 handle many jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be positioned 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 tackle small commercial jobs.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Edmonton?
This depends upon the size you want and if you will require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the cheapest option. The most costly and largest choice is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in business settings. To obtain an instant quote for skip hire in Edmonton, simply enter your delivery postcode into the search box above.
Is it okay to load up my skip above level load mark?
It is essential not to overload the skip. You must not pass the level load mark that is indicated on the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it can be very unsafe to move. This means that when you overload the skip, you may be required to remove the excess rubbish. No matter how safe you think the skip is, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This can be unsafe and is not allowed.
