Who will deliver my skip?
To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work in partnership with a number of local and national companies. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to offer customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.
Where will my waste be taken to once the skip is collected?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste gets segregated into a number of waste types, including stone, metals and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the collection is recycled as possible. We are proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are ideal for small DIY jobs and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are ideal for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and broken baby toys to paving slabs and soil. Having a volume of about 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip could save you having to make multiple journeys to your local recycling centre.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the very next day. Sometimes, we will even give you a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed during the order process.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is usually best to be there on the day it is delivered. You can then ensure that the skip lorry has full access and that the skip is located precisely where you need it. This also is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly if gates restrict access.
Having said that, if that is not possible, you do not need to be concerned. Simply tell us when you are making your order, and we will take care of the rest.
Am I able to throw electronic products in my skip?
Unfortunately not, as electrical products like old TVs, fridges, computers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items have to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly manner.
Is it ok to fill the skip above level load line?
It is important to not overfill a skip, as you risk being told to take off excess waste before it can be picked up. Regardless of the size you order, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, as moving an overloaded container is hazardous, as waste could drop and result in injuries or damage to others.
To prevent this problem, please be sure you hire a skip size suited to your waste removal needs. If your skip is full but you have some extra waste to dispose of, we are happy to organise an exchange.
What kinds of waste can I get rid of in a skip?
Before ordering a skip, it is essential to ensure that the type of rubbish you want to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials must be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Waste types you are able to put in your skip include household goods like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You may also use your skip to throw out building and demolition rubbish, like wood, top soil, rubble, metals and concrete.
Some examples of forbidden items include electrical goods, tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and subsequently need to be discarded separately from any general waste.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Gerrards Cross?
Preferably, you want to have the skip left on a hard surface area. If you are carrying out a residential project, then the driveway will be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. However, when neither option is available, the road or grass verge could be your only option. As this is public land, you will need to have a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be dropped on the street, grass verge as well as other public property in Gerrards Cross. If this is needed, we will arrange for the license to be granted on your behalf. An additional cost, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your skip.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you run a business in Gerrards Cross and need to dispose of large quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip could be a fantastic option. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers that you can hire.
As the label implies, these type of containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, unlike conventional skips, that are picked up using chains.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Gerrards Cross?
This depends upon the skip size you will need and if you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the lowest priced choice. The most costly and biggest choice is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used primarily in business settings.

Which size skips will have a drop down door?
Nearly all skip sizes can be provided with a drop door, making them much easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and then we can do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the container, especially with heavy materials, such as soil and rubble, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in large and bulky items, like pieces of furniture.
Will you deliver skips across Buckinghamshire?
Certainly. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we can supply skips to residential and commercial customers throughout Buckinghamshire and elsewhere within the UK.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
You can normally have the skip for as many as two weeks from your delivery date. You can give a preferred collection date when you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can let us know when you have loaded the skip, and then we will plan the collection. Usually, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take a bit longer over busy times.
How much waste can a builders skip hold?
The term builders skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yard skip. The name comes from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes that are hired by builders and tradespeople.
These large containers are ideal for a multitude of household and commercial jobs. These are the largest skips which can be used for weighty builders waste including dirt, rubble and concrete.
How can I order a skip online?
This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you would like to hire. Let us know whether the skip will be going on private property (a drive, for example) or public property (like the street). Next, pick the day you would like the skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and make payment using our secure online payment system. Order complete!
