Egham Skip Hire FAQs
How much will skip hire in Egham cost?
To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Egham, enter your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you which skip sizes we offer in your area and how much each option costs to hire. If the skip is going on the street or other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also need to be factored in.
Will you deliver skips across Surrey?
Yes. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we are able to provide skips to residential and industrial customers across Surrey and elsewhere within the UK.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Egham?
If possible, you should have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. For anybody who is carrying out a residential job, then a drive will be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. However, when neither is available, the road or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public land, you will have to get a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be positioned on the road, grass verge or any other public property in Egham. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be granted on your behalf. An additional charge, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.
How do you order a skip online?
We have created our online booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. The first task is to type in your address to see all the different skip sizes we can supply in Egham. Pick the best size to meet your needs and give us the details of where and when you need your skip to be delivered. After that you can make payment with our secure payment system, and we will send an email to verify the order once your order is done!
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These are the largest containers that can be used to get rid of substantial building and demolition waste such as stone, concrete, rubble or soil.
A builders skip is ideal for a variety of jobs. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or cleaning the attic, these large containers are often the most affordable solution available.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t have to be at home when the skip is delivered, but it will help. Being there when your skip is due to be delivered means that you can make sure the lorry can be given complete access and that your skip is positioned precisely where you want it. Similarly, if your skip is delivered to a business property, we will appreciate your help at the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
Having said that, when you 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.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
The standard hire time frame will be two weeks from the date of delivery. Having said that, when you order the skip, you can provide a collection date that will work for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you simply won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if the skip is loaded sooner than expected, let us know, and we will get it picked up as soon as possible.
Collections will normally be made within 48 hours. However, it is important to understand that this may not always be possible during busy periods. Once collected, your skip will be taken to your local waste transfer station, where it will be processed and sorted.
What size skips do you provide?
We offer a whole selection of skip sizes to domestic and business clients all over the UK. We have a skip to match all needs – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the enormous 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Here are the different sized skips you can choose from, with a rough guide to the amount of rubbish each size can hold:
- 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
- 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
- 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
- 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

Am I able to throw all types of waste in my skip?
It is possible to throw a variety of waste into the skip. This includes wood, floor tiles, metal or bricks from a property clearance. Plant and bush clippings, top soil and rock from garden jobs are permitted too. Cupboards from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be thrown in the skip.
However, there are some things that you can’t put in a skip a result of the potential ecological or health risk they could trigger.
You can not throw in your fridge, laptop or car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. All of these things incorporate hazardous elements in one type or another. They should be discarded separately from your normal waste.
Should you need hazardous waste removal, we might be able to schedule an independent collection for this waste. Please get in touch for more information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling centre.
How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a huge container that is used to dispose of large volumes of rubbish. These skips are mainly for commercial use but can be used by household customers too. Having said that, you will require a lot of room since these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger when compared to the typical skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
Due to the size, roro skips should only be hired for lightweight materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not appropriate for getting rid of soil and bricks.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are great for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and broken baby toys to paving slabs and garden soil. Having a capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you needing to make numerous journeys to your local recycling centre.
Will a skip hire company from Egham deliver my skip?
We utilise a large network of both regional and national skip hire companies to supply skips to our clients in Egham and the rest of the country. Each of our partner skip hire companies are verified and tested to make sure they meet our expectations for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
Is it possible to get a skip which has a drop door?
In general, nearly all skips can be provided with a hinged door, depending on the size, availability and area. If you need a drop down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.
Having a skip with a drop door is primarily beneficial when you are hiring a big builder’s skip, since it lets you wheelbarrow your waste directly into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini skips, since they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What happens to my rubbish once the skip is collected?
The items in the skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer facility. Here the contents will be separated by machines and by hand into numerous waste streams, like metal, cardboard, rubble and wood. Processing the waste in this way helps to increase the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is always to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.
Am I able to get rid of electrical products in my skip?
I’m afraid not, as electrical items including old TVs, cookers, laptops and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items need to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly way.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will make sure your skip will be provided on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the following day.
Although we can’t promise an exact delivery time, we will always do our best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You should ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will most likely incur a fee for the wasted journey.
Can I stack up waste in my skip?
I’m afraid not. You can only fill your skip up to the level load line. Loading waste up above this line makes it dangerous to transport, and you might be asked to remove the excess waste before the skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or any other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and can also make it overweight.
