Enfield Skip Hire FAQs
Will you deliver skips across London?
Indeed, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skip sizes to locations throughout London, such as Enfield, Chessington, Edmonton and Hackney. So regardless of where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Enfield?
Our goal is to provide you with the most affordable skip hire service in Enfield. The price you pay will, obviously, depend on the size of skip that you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you need to have a skip positioned on the street or other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the extra cost of the skip permit.
Will the skip be supplied with a drop down door?
Getting a skip that has a drop down door helps make loading waste into the skip so much easier. This is especially true with heavy waste materials like dirt or concrete, which can then be walked straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make disposing of big bulky objects like furniture a lot easier also.
The majority of skips can be provided with a drop door, although this will sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when you place your online order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our very best to deliver this.
How soon can you deliver a skip in Enfield?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it for you on a day that best suits you. We can usually offer you a next day delivery service for orders arranged before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip on private property, because to be on public property (like a road), you must gain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of numerous factors that may impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it turning up within a AM or PM slot.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
You can in most cases have the skip for up to two weeks from the date of delivery. You may give a chosen collection date at the time you make your order. Otherwise, you can tell us when you have finished, and we will prepare your collection. Normally, this will be the following working day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer during busy times.
What sizes do skips come in?

Am I able to put electronic items in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric items must be kept separate from general rubbish to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electronic products like washing machines, TVs, toasters, tablets and even hair straighteners.
What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?
The waste in your skip will be taken to the local waste recycling station. Here the contents will be separated by machines and by hand into different waste streams, like soil, paper, hardcore and timber. Processing the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is to maximise recycling and minimise the amount of waste ending up in landfill.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a large container used to dispose of large amounts of rubbish. These containers are predominantly for industrial use but can be hired by residential clients as well. However, you need lots of space because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger when compared to the average skip you will see on the roadside.
Due to the size, roll-on roll-off skips should only be hired for light materials such as plastics, timber and paper, so they are not suited to disposing of concrete and rubble.
Will a Enfield skip hire company deliver my skip?
A local skip company will likely deliver your skip in Enfield. We make use of a network of both local and national companies to enable us to provide our service to customers across the whole of the UK. These businesses are thoroughly assessed to make certain they fulfill the high expectations we demand with regards to customer service, price and environmental performance.
What sort of waste am I able to get rid of in a skip?
You can use a skip to throw out many different waste materials. We are used to picking up and handling lots of items generated from building jobs, garden projects and home clearances. Some examples of permitted waste types can include:
- Home furniture
- Garden cuttings
- Top soil
- Bathroom sinks
- Cabinets and units
Many materials are generally permitted, and so whether you need to dispose of furniture, plastics, timber or unwanted toys, we can usually take your rubbish away.
The volume and things you throw in the skip can vary according to the size skip you have chosen. All skips have a weight limit for safety purposes. So to be able to dispose of soil and concrete, as an example, the largest size container you will be allowed to hire will be the 8 yard builders skip.
Are there items which I can’t discard in the skip?
There are several items you are not permitted to dump in the skip. The reason for this is that these products contain hazardous materials that may harm the environment. They can also be damaging to human health, therefore they have to be disposed of separately within UK legislation.
A few examples of the items that are restricted include:
- Paint tins
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas canisters
- Computer monitors
- Car tyres

Do I need to be at home when my skip is due to be delivered?
No, you don’t need to be home when we are delivering your skip. As long as we are able to gain access to where you need it located, we can take care of everything.
In case you are not likely to be at home, simply provide us with any relevant delivery directions when booking your order. For example, you might want the skip to be positioned on a particular part of your property. Or you might need to ensure that the skip doesn’t prevent entry to your garage.
No matter what the case might be, simply tell us when you place your order, and then we will ensure your directions will be passed to the lorry driver.
Can I stack up waste in my skip?
It is important never to overfill a skip, as you risk being asked to take out surplus waste prior to it being collected. Whatever size you hire, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, because transporting an overloaded bin will be unsafe, as waste could fall and lead to injury or damage to others.
To avoid this issue, please be sure to order a size suited to your waste disposal needs. If your skip is full and you have more waste to dispose of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.
Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Enfield?
This depends upon where the skip is going to be located. You will only need a permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if your skip is on private property, such as a driveway or within your business premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Just let us know while completing the order process, and then we will make the required arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can have the skip on private land, it will save you some money.
What size is a mini skip?
When you have a small amount of rubbish to throw out, the mini skip may be the best option. What size is known as a mini skip differs from company to company, depending on what sizes they supply.
2 cubic yards is probably the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some companies choose to have a 3 yard container as their smallest option. Price is based on the specific size you order, rather than the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are great for household jobs including modest DIY projects and garden shed tidy ups. If you want it put on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The term stems from the fact that they are the most typical sizes that are hired by builders and tradespeople.
These substantial skips are suited to a wide variety of residential and commercial jobs. They are the largest sizes that you can use for hefty builders waste such as soil, rubble and gravel.
