Feltham Skip Hire FAQs
If I need a skip on a road in Feltham, will I need a permit?
This depends upon where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a permit when it is placed on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit when your skip is on your private property, such as a drive or within 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 while completing the order process, so we can make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position the skip on private land, you will save some pounds.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Feltham?
Since we offer a national skip service, we use a comprehensive network of verified companies. These vary from small local skip hire companies to national waste management providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to ensure they match our high customer service and environmental standards.
How long will it take to get a skip in Feltham?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it to you on a day that best suits you. We can typically provide a following day delivery service for orders arranged before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, since to be on public property (such as a highway), you will need to get a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.
Due to several factors that can impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it turning up within a AM or PM slot.
What things can I put in the skip?
Your skip can be hired to get rid of lots of different types of waste materials. We are used to picking up and handling lots of materials produced from construction work, garden landscaping and property clean-ups. Some examples of permitted waste types can include:
- Home furniture
- Hedge trimmings
- Garden soil
- Concrete and bricks
- Bathroom toilets and sinks
- Cabinets and units
Many different waste types are usually permitted, so whether you would like to discard metals, plastics, timber or unwanted toys, we can usually take your rubbish away.
The quantity and things you discard in your skip will vary according to the size skip you have hired. All skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you want to discard soil and concrete, for example, the biggest size container you will be able to hire would be the 8 cubic yard skip.
What kind of items am I not allowed to put in a skip?
There are some waste items which you are not permitted to discard in your skip. The reason behind this is that some goods incorporate hazardous materials which may cause harm to the environment. They can also be harmful to human health, so they must be discarded separately under UK regulations.
Some examples of the items that are restricted include:
- Paint tins
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas canisters
- PC screens

What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact bins are perfect for small DIY jobs and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and old baby toys to paving blocks and rubble. Having a total capacity of around 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip could save you having to make numerous trips to the local recycling centre.
How large is a roll-on roll-off container?
A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a huge container that is used to get rid of large volumes of waste. These bins are primarily for commercial use but can be hired by residential clients as well. However, you will require lots of space since these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger in comparison to the typical skip you will likely see on the roadside.
Due to the size, RORO skips should only be provided for light-weight materials like plastics, timber and paper, and so they are not appropriate for disposing of concrete and rubble.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Feltham?
The price of getting a skip in Feltham will depend on the size of skip you want. The lowest priced skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and clearances. If you require a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The cost will also increase if you want to have a skip positioned on the road, as you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?
It is usually a good idea to be in when anybody delivers anything to your property. That enables you to ensure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be positioned precisely where you want it.
The same applies if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.
Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is being delivered.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
As the name indicates, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most commonly supplied for building and construction projects. There are generally two sizes that can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers which you can use to dispose of large amounts of construction and demolition waste materials, including earth, concrete and rock.
Although branded a builders skip, these can be used for multiple other household and industrial waste disposal tasks.
Which size skips can have a door?
For anyone who is hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop down door. This is perfect for disposing of hefty building and demolition materials, as it can be walked in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also have a drop door, however they are more uncommon. This is because these sizes are generally small enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, please let us know when ordering. We will do our best to ensure a container which has a drop door is provided.
What size skips do you provide?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Feltham, you have numerous options to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact skip is excellent for modest household clearances and DIY work.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most frequent sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. But their big capacity also makes them ideal for house clearances including bulky items like furniture and beds.
We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people with even bigger waste disposal needs. These skips are only suitable for lightweight waste materials, so they can not be hired to get rid of soil or rubble.
For more details about the various skip sizes offered, such as proportions, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
What happens to my rubbish once the skip is picked up?
As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into different waste streams, such as wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This makes sure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
You can in most cases keep the skip for as long as 14 days from your date of delivery. You can provide a chosen collection day at the time you make your order. Otherwise, you can tell us when you have finished with the skip, and then we will prepare your collection. Usually, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer during busy times.
Can you deliver skips across London?
Sure, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can provide skips to areas throughout London, such as Feltham, Chessington, Dulwich and Carshalton. So regardless of where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?
It is important not to overfill a skip, as you risk being told to remove excessive waste prior to it being picked up. Regardless of the size you hire, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, as transporting an overloaded container can be unsafe, as objects could fall and result in personal injury or damage to others.
To prevent this issue, please make sure you hire a skip size suitable for your waste disposal requirements. If the skip is full but you have additional waste to dispose of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.
Can I throw electrical products in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical products have to be kept separate from general waste to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric items including washing machines, TVs, kettles, computers and even hair straighteners.
