Epping Skip Hire FAQs

What is classed as a builder’s skip?

The builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These will be the biggest skips that can be used to discard heavy building waste such as stone, concrete, gravel or garden soil.

A builders skip is perfect for a variety of projects. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your bathroom or clearing the loft, these substantial skips tend to be the most cost-effective option available.

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

Normally, you can keep a skip for a maximum of two week. This means you don’t need to hurry through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.

What are the different skip sizes to choose from?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Epping, you will have several sizes to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact skip is fantastic for small home clearances and DIY tasks.

Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most frequent sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. But their large capacity also makes them well suited for household clearances involving large items like furniture and beds.

We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for customers with even bigger waste disposal requirements. These containers are only suitable for lightweight waste, so they can’t be used to dispose of soil or stone.

For additional information about the various skip sizes available, such as dimensions, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.

Can you deliver to other areas in Essex?

Certainly. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we can deliver skips to domestic and business customers throughout Essex and elsewhere in the UK.

How much will skip hire in Epping cost?

This is determined by the size you want and whether you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the lowest priced option. The most expensive and largest choice is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used primarily in industrial settings.

What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Epping?

Hiring a skip in Epping through us is incredibly simple. Decide on the skip size you want and input a handful of details about where and when you want your skip to be delivered. You then pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and then arrange to get your skip delivered.

What sort of rubbish can you get rid of in a skip?

Prior to ordering your skip, it is essential to make sure that the type of waste materials you wish to dispose of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials have to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.

A few examples of waste types you may put in a skip include household items like furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You can also use a skip to get rid of building and construction rubbish, such as bricks, top soil, rubble, metals and concrete.

Examples of restricted items include things like electronic items, tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. They are all considered hazardous waste and therefore must be discarded separately from general waste.

How big is the 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 work and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.

They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and old toys to paving slabs and concrete. Having a capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you needing to make multiple trips to your local recycling centre.

What will happen to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste gets separated into various waste streams, which includes wood, soil and plastics. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste can be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!

If I would like a skip on a road in Epping, will I need to have a permit?

In the majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you would like the skip to be placed on land outside of your business or home, you need to secure authorisation from your local council in Epping, which is known as a skip permit. If required, we would gladly organise this for you, therefore it’s one less issue to think about. The council will charge a fee for your skip license, and you should be aware before ordering that securing the permit will often take up to 2 working days.

Can I dispose of electronic products in my skip?

Electrical objects such as TVs, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous waste type and so should not be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical products should be segregated from other rubbish. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly way.

Will my skip come with a drop door?

Generally speaking, most skips can be supplied with a hinged door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you need a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Having a skip which has a drop door is primarily helpful when you are hiring a big builder’s skip, because it enables you to wheelbarrow waste straight into the skip. This isn’t so important for midi and mini skips, as they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Who will deliver my skip?

To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work with a number of local and nationwide companies. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to ensure we can provide customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.

Am I allowed to load the skip higher than the side?

It is important not to overfill your skip, as you risk being required to remove surplus waste before it can be collected. Whatever size you order, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, since transporting an overloaded skip is hazardous, as objects could fall and lead to injury or damage to others.

To prevent this problem, please make sure you order a size suited to your waste removal needs. If the skip is full but you have some further rubbish to dispose of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.

Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?

You don’t need to be at your property when your skip will be delivered, however it can help. Being home whenever the skip is delivered means that you can make sure the driver can be given complete access and that the skip will be placed exactly where you want it. Likewise, if the skip is hired to a business premises, we will appreciate your support during the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.

However, for those who can’t be available for delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you place the order, and then we will arrange things from there.

What size roll-on roll-off skips do you provide?

If you operate a business in Epping and need to dispose of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container might be a great option. Offered in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the biggest waste disposal containers on the market.

As the name suggests, these containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, as opposed to conventional skips, that are picked up using chains.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

When your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a day that best suits you. We will normally offer you a next day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip placed on private property, as to be on public property (like a street), you need to gain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to arrange.

As a result of several factors that can impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can anticipate it arriving within a AM or PM slot.

Other areas covered include Colchester, Southminster, Frinton-on-Sea, Chipping Ongar, Witham, Loughton, Rochford and Maldon.
