Faversham Skip Hire FAQs
How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest skip delivered by skip companies and is perfect for small DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some firms will provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?
No, you don’t need to be home when we deliver the skip. So long as we can gain access to the place you need it delivered, we are able to take care of it all.
For those who are not going to be in, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when booking your order. For instance, you might want the skip to be dropped on a particular part of the property. Or you may need to make sure the skip does not obstruct entry to your garage.
Whatever the situation might be, provide the information when you place your order, and then we will ensure your directions are passed to the delivery driver.
What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Faversham?
Hiring a skip in Faversham through us is very simple. Select the skip size you require and then input a handful of details about when and where you need your skip delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and then schedule to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
Am I able to have a skip that has a drop door?
Getting a skip with a drop down door makes filling waste into the skip a lot easier. This is particularly the case with hefty waste such as garden soil or hardcore, which can then be loaded straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading up large bulky items such as pieces of furniture a lot easier also.
The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, but this will sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when placing your booking if a drop door is needed, and we will do our very best to supply this.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
Normally, you can have a skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you don’t have to rush through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is full before the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.
Do you deliver skips across Kent?
Certainly. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we can offer skips to domestic and industrial customers throughout Kent and elsewhere in the UK.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you offer?
If you run a company in Faversham and want to dispose of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a perfect choice. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips that can be hired.
As the name suggests, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, as opposed to regular skips, that are lifted by using chains.
Am I able to get rid of electronic products in my skip?
No, you can not dispose of old or broken electronic waste products in a skip. This can include items like laptops or computers, cookers, dishwashers, fridges and monitors. Electronic items can’t be thrown in a skip as they can contain dangerous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
When will my skip be delivered?
We can typically supply skips to Faversham the following working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking system gives you various delivery dates to pick from. So whether you would like the skip delivered asap or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
If I want a skip on a road in Faversham, will I need to have a permit?
This depends on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need to have a permit if it is put on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if the skip is on your private property, like a driveway or on your company premises.
If you need to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Simply let us know as part of the order process, and then we can make the necessary arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can have the skip on private property, it will save you a few pounds.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
Our company offers a complete variety of skip capacities to residential and industrial clients throughout the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the modest 2 cubic yard mini skip to the huge 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Listed below are the different sizes to choose from, with a rough guide to the amount of rubbish each skip can hold:

Will a skip hire company from Faversham deliver my skip?
We use a network of both local and nationwide skip hire companies to supply skips to our customers in Faversham and the rest of the country. Each of our partner skip hire providers are verified and evaluated to make certain they match our expectations for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
What types of waste materials can I put in a skip?
You are able to fill up your skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly produced from garage clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This may include wood, garden soil, stone, hedge trimmings, furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you throw in your skip depends on the skip size you have hired, as there is a weight limit. For instance, in the event that you are using a skip for heavy building waste including concrete or soil, the biggest size you could use is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials should not be disposed of in the skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?
Once you have finished with your skip, we come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste recycling station either in or local to Faversham where we segregate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
How much does skip hire in Faversham cost?
This will depend on the skip size you want and if you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the cheapest choice. The most expensive and largest choice is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in commercial settings.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The term builders skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The label originates from the fact that these are the most popular sizes that are ordered by general builders and tradespeople.
These large containers are great for numerous types of household and commercial jobs. They are the biggest sizes which can be used for weighty builders waste such as garden soil, stone and gravel.
Am I allowed to fill up my skip above the level load line?
It is essential to not overfill a skip. You should not pass the level load mark that is indicated on the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it becomes very hazardous to move. This means that if you overload the skip, you could be required to take off the surplus rubbish. No matter how secure you feel the skip to be, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat materials to build up around the waste. That is hazardous and is therefore prohibited.
