How long am I able to hire the skip for?
Our regular hire time frame is 14 days from the date of delivery. However, when you book the skip, you can choose a collection date that is ideal for you. Of course, there is a chance that you just won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if the skip is finished with sooner than expected, tell us, and we will get it collected as quickly as possible.
We will usually complete collections within 48 hours. But, it is important to remember that this may not be possible during busy times. Once collected, the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed and sorted.
How big is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are big industrial scale skips used mainly in the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them excellent for companies that produce large quantities of waste materials.
How much does skip hire in Grays cost?
Our aim is to offer the most affordable skip hire service in Grays. The price you pay will, of course, depend on the size of skip that you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you need to have the skip placed on the road or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the added expense of a skip permit.
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
The items in your skip will be taken to the local waste recycling facility. Here the contents will be separated by machinery and by hand into numerous waste streams, including soil, cardboard, hardcore and wood. Processing the waste in this way helps to increase the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste ending up in landfill.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?
No, you do not have to be at home when we deliver the skip. Provided that we are able to gain access to where you want it located, we will take care of everything.
If you will not be at home, just let us have any relevant delivery instructions when placing your order. For example, you may need the skip to be located at a particular part of your driveway. Or you might need to make sure the skip doesn’t prevent entry to your garage.
No matter what the situation may be, provide the information when ordering, and then we will make sure the instructions will be passed on to the lorry driver.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Grays?
If at all possible, you want to have the skip dropped on a hard surface area. When you are carrying out a household job, then a drive is going to be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, if neither is available, the road or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public land, you must have a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be located on a street, grass verge as well as other public property in Grays. If this is needed, we will arrange for the license to be granted for you. An extra cost, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your skip.
Am I allowed to throw all sorts of waste in a skip?
You are allowed to fill the skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly generated from garage clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include timber, soil, rubble, hedge trimmings, furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you put in your skip depends on which size you have hired, because there is a maximum weight restriction. For example, if you are using your skip for heavy construction wastes like stone or top soil, the largest size you can use is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials cannot be disposed of in a skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.
Is it okay to load the skip higher than level load mark?
It is essential to not overfill a skip. You can not pass the level load mark shown along the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it is very unsafe to transport. This means that when you overload the skip, you might be asked to take off the surplus waste. No matter how safe you think the skip to be, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This can be dangerous and is not allowed.
Do all skips have a drop down door?
Having a skip which has a drop down door helps make filling waste into the skip a lot easier. This is especially the case with hefty waste materials such as soil and stone, which can then be loaded directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away big bulky objects like pieces of furniture a lot easier too.
The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, however it will sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a drop door is required, and we will do our very best to provide this.

What skip sizes can you provide?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Grays, you will have various sizes to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard container, often referred to as a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for modest home clearances and DIY jobs.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most common sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also makes them perfect for household clear ups including large objects such as household furniture and beds.
We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for customers with even larger waste disposal needs. These skips are only suited to lightweight waste materials, so they cannot be hired to dispose of soil or rubble.

What size is a builder’s skip?
The phrase builders skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. The term comes from the fact that these are the most common sizes ordered by general builders and tradespeople.
These substantial containers are suitable for an array of household and business projects. They are the largest skip sizes that can be used for heavy builders waste such as soil, rubble and concrete.
What size is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers are perfect for small DIY jobs and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are great 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 bricks. With a capacity of around 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip can save you having to make multiple trips to your local recycling centre.
Can I put electrical products in my skip?
Electrical products like TVs, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous waste and so can not be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric objects need to be segregated from other rubbish. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.
