Farnborough Skip Hire FAQs
How long can I hire a skip for?
You can normally keep your skip for up to 2 weeks from your date of delivery. It is possible to provide a preferred collection date at the time you place your order. Otherwise, you can tell us when you have finished with the skip, and we will plan your collection. Normally, this will be the next working day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer during busy periods.
What is the size of a builders skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The label originates from the fact that they are the most popular sizes hired by builders and tradespeople.
These substantial containers are suitable for a wide variety of domestic and industrial jobs. These are the biggest size skips that can be used for heavy builders waste like top soil, stone and concrete.
What happens to the waste in my skip once I have finished?
The items in your skip will be taken to the local waste recycling facility. Here the waste will be separated by machines and by hand into numerous waste streams, such as metal, plastics, rubble and timber. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to maximise the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste that ends up in landfill.
How much waste can a mini skip hold?
When you have a small quantity of rubbish to dispose of, a mini skip may be the perfect choice. What size is identified as a mini skip is different from business to business, based on what sizes they supply.
2 cubic yards is considered the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to have a 3 yard skip as their smallest option. The price is dependent on the actual size you order, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are ideal for residential tasks like 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 the best choice.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?
You don’t have to be home when your skip is going to be delivered, however it can help. Being there whenever the skip is being delivered means you can ensure the lorry driver can be given full access and that your skip can be located precisely where you want it. Similarly, if your skip is hired to your business premises, we will appreciate your support during the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
Having said that, if you can’t be available during delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you book your order, and we will arrange things from there.
Will my skip have a drop down door?
Typically, the majority of skips can be supplied with a hinged door, dependant upon size, availability and area. If you require a drop door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Having a skip with a drop door is primarily beneficial if you are choosing a large builder’s skip, because it allows you to wheelbarrow your rubbish directly into the skip. This isn’t so important for midi and mini skips, since they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Will a Farnborough skip hire company deliver my skip?

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container used to dispose of huge volumes of waste materials. Generally, these containers are used for industrial purposes. However, domestic clients can also hire them. You have to take into account the space they will take up, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they can only be utilised for light waste such as plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of dirt and stone.
Am I allowed to throw electrical products in the skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items have to be kept separate from general rubbish to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electronic goods like cookers, televisions, kettles, computers and even hair straighteners.

What can I put in my skip?
Prior to ordering a skip, it is important to make sure that the sort of rubbish you intend to get rid of is allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials must be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Some examples of waste types you can throw in your skip include household goods like furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You could also use a skip to throw out building and construction waste, including wood, dirt, rubble, metals and gravel.
Some examples of forbidden items include things like electrical items, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently need to be discarded separately from any general waste.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Farnborough?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need a permit if it is put on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit when your skip is on your private property, like a drive or on your business premises.
If you need to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us while completing the order process, so we will make the required arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can position your skip on your own property, it will save you some money.
What skip sizes can you deliver?
Skips are offered in a wide range of sizes to suit various waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is great for small household jobs.
The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold approximately 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a good option for attic clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
When you have a more significant rubbish disposal job to take on, the builder’s skip could be the most suitable option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label indicates, these represent the most popular sizes used by builders for building waste, such as soil and rubble. But they can equally well be used for household rubbish such as old furniture or kitchen units.
We also supply 10-16 yard skips and commercial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For more info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
Is it ok to load the skip higher than the side?
No. You must only load the skip up to the level load line. Stacking rubbish up above this line will make it dangerous to move, and you might be asked to take away the surplus waste before the skip can be removed. This includes using doors, or any other objects to raise the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip dangerous and can also make it overweight.
