Below are some of the typical questions we receive about our skip hire service.
Eton Skip Hire FAQs
Can you deliver skips across Berkshire?
Indeed, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skips to areas throughout Berkshire, such as Eton, Sandhurst, Wokingham and Slough. So wherever you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is delivered?
No, you do not need to be at home when we deliver the skip. So long as we are able to gain access to the place you want it positioned, we can take care of it all.
In case you are not going to be at home, just provide us with any relevant delivery directions when you place your order. For instance, you might want the skip to be positioned on a particular part of your property. Alternatively, you may need to ensure that the skip does not prevent use of your garage.
No matter what the case might be, provide the information when you place your order, and we will ensure the directions will be passed to the delivery driver.
What is a builders skip?
As the name suggests, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most often hired for building and demolition jobs. There are typically two different skip sizes that can be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to dispose of substantial volumes of construction and demolition waste, including soil, rubble and bricks.
Although labelled a builders skip, these can of course be used for a number of other household and commercial waste disposal tasks.
What things can I put in my skip?
This is among the most frequent questions people have about our service. What is important to remember is that you can fill up your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are so many types of rubbish that may result from garden projects, construction work and property clearances.
Some of the most frequent things which we pick up in skips include soil, timber, tree trimmings, cabinets, bathroom suites, and various other household products.
There are some waste materials that you are not allowed to put in the skip. This consists of any electrical products (fridges and freezers, televisions and cookers for example), tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. They are all considered hazardous waste, and so disposing of them has to follow a completely different process to make sure they do not cause damage to the environment.
What is the cost of skip hire in Eton?
Our goal is to give you the lowest priced skip hire service in Eton. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip you hire. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have the skip placed on the road or any other council property, you will also need to factor in the extra price of a skip permit.
How do you order a skip in Eton?
We have designed our booking process with speed and simplicity in mind. The first task is to enter your delivery address to see the range of skip sizes we are able to provide in Eton. Pick the right size to meet your requirements and provide the details of where and when you need the skip delivered. You then make payment through the secure payment system, and we will send an email to verify the order once your order is done!
Am I able to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
No, you can not put old or unwanted electronic waste items in your skip. This can include things such as computers, hobs, dishwashers, refrigerators and tv sets. Electronic objects can’t be disposed of in the skip because they can contain dangerous materials and components.
Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot be sent to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
What sizes do skips come in?
We are able to offer a wide selection of skip sizes to meet your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip great for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A popular option for more substantial projects, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard skip.
For Eton companies which generate a large amount of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Will my skip come with a drop door?
Getting a skip with a drop door makes filling waste into the skip so much easier. This is especially the case with hefty waste like soil or rubble, which can then be loaded directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading big bulky objects like pieces of furniture a lot easier too.
Most skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, but this can sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when placing your order if a door is needed, and we will do our very best to provide this.
How large is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers are fantastic for small DIY work and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and old baby toys to paving blocks and soil. With a volume of approximately 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip could save you having to make multiple visits to your local recycling centre.
What happens to the waste in my skip?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The waste gets segregated into a range of waste types, which includes timber, metals and plastics. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste is recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We can normally deliver skips to Eton the next working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking system offers you various delivery dates to pick from. So whether you need your skip delivered ASAP or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container used to dispose of huge quantities of waste. Predominantly, these skips are hired for commercial applications. Having said that, residential customers can also hire them. It is essential to consider the space they occupy, since they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they must only be hired for lightweight materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of dirt and concrete.
Will a Eton skip hire company deliver my skip?
We use a network of both local and national skip hire firms to supply skips to our customers in Eton and the rest of the country. All of our partner skip hire companies are approved and tested to make certain they match our standards for cost, service, recycling and reliability.
Can I fill the skip higher than level load mark?
It is important not to overfill a skip. You must not pass the level load mark that is shown along the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it is very dangerous to move. This means that if you overload the skip, you could be required to take away the excess rubbish. Regardless of how safe you feel the skip to be, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes using doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This can be hazardous and is prohibited.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
You can usually keep the skip for up to 2 weeks from your delivery date. You can give a chosen collection date when you place your order. Otherwise, you can let us know once you have finished with the skip, and then we will prepare your collection. In most cases, this will be the next business day, although it can sometimes take a little longer over busy periods.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Eton?
This will depend on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a skip permit if it is put on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit when your skip will be on your private property, like a drive or on your business premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us during the order process, and then we can make the required arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate the skip on private land, it will save you some pounds.
