Ewell Skip Hire FAQs
Do all skips come with a drop door?
Typically, almost all skips can be supplied with a drop door, dependant upon skip size, availability and location. If you need a drop door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip with a drop door is primarily helpful when you are choosing a large builder’s skip, since it means that you can wheelbarrow waste materials into the skip. This is not so important for midi and mini skips, because they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How much does skip hire in Ewell cost?
This depends on the size you need and if you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the cheapest choice. The most expensive and largest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in commercial settings.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container used to get rid of significant amounts of waste materials. Generally, these containers are hired for business purposes. Having said that, household clients can also use them. You should think about the space they will take up, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they should only be hired for light-weight waste like paper, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of garden soil and hardcore.
Can you deliver skips across Surrey?
Along with delivering our range of skips to Ewell, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across Surrey. By utilising our network of local and national waste management companies, we provide a totally nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to a house or business in Ewell, Shepperton or Egham, we have got it covered.
How many different skip sizes are there?
We can provide a wide selection of skip sizes to meet your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip suitable for small DIY projects and house clearances. A popular option for larger sized tasks, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard skip.
For Ewell businesses which produce a large quantity of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What can I put in the skip?
This is among the most popular questions people have about hiring a skip. What is important to consider is that you can fill up your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are numerous kinds of waste which will result from garden work, building work and house clearances.
Some of the most frequent things which we collect in skips include garden soil, wood, tree cuttings, kitchen units, toilets, and other household items.
There are also some items that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. For example, any electrical goods (fridge freezers, televisions or cookers for example), car tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all regarded as hazardous waste, and disposing of them has to follow an entirely different procedure to ensure they don’t cause damage to the environment.
How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?
The term builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The term originates from the fact that they are the most popular sizes that are used by general builders and tradespeople.
These substantial containers are ideal for a multitude of domestic and industrial jobs. These are the biggest size skips which can be used for weighty builders waste including garden soil, stone and gravel.
What happens to the rubbish?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the different waste materials, including timber, metals, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Will a Ewell skip hire company deliver my skip?
We utilise a network of both regional and national skip hire companies to deliver skips to our customers in Ewell and the rest of the country. Each of our partner skip hire providers are verified and tested to ensure they meet our standards for price, service, recycling rates and reliability.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
When your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it for you on a day that suits you. We will typically offer you a next day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip placed on private property, because to be on public property (for example a highway), you will have to obtain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.
As a result of numerous factors that may impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it arriving within a morning or afternoon slot.
How can I hire a skip in Ewell?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you wish to hire. Tell us if the skip shall be going on private property (a drive, for example) or council property (such as the street). After that, pick the day you want your skip to be delivered. Check your order details and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Ewell on the date you have chosen.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest size delivered by skip companies and is perfect for smaller DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, that will hold the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some firms offer you a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is due to be delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be in on the day it is delivered. You can then be sure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip will be placed exactly where you need it. The same is true when you have a skip delivered to company property, particularly if gates limit access.
However, when this is not possible, you don’t have to stress. Just let us know when making your booking, and then we will handle everything.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Ewell?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need to have a skip permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit when your skip will be on private property, such as a drive or on your company premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just let us know as part of the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position the skip on your own land, it will save you a few pounds.
Can I load up the skip above level load line?
You must not load a skip past the level load line. When you load it over the tip of this mark, it means your skip will not be secure to move, and you can be asked to remove any excess waste prior to it being collected.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
No, you can not throw old or broken electronic waste items in your skip. This can include such things as printers, hobs, tumble dryers, refrigerators and tv sets. Electronic objects can’t be disposed of in a skip as they can include dangerous materials and components.
Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot go to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to 2 weeks. Usually, that will give you plenty of time to fill up the skip. However, if you need a little more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Obviously, if you finish with the skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just contact us once you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as quickly as possible.
