Hackney Skip Hire FAQs

How long will it take to get a skip in Hackney?

We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you have asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you confirm your order before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we can’t promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we try to provide a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery spot, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can result in a fee for a wasted trip.

Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?

I’m afraid this is not allowed, because electronic products such as old televisions, cookers, printers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Because 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 secure and eco-friendly fashion.

Do I need to be at home when my skip is going to be delivered?

It usually is a good idea to be in when anyone delivers anything to your property. You can then make sure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be dropped precisely where you want it.

The same goes for those who have a business. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.

However, should it be unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips are offered in a wide range of different sizes to match different waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is good for small household jobs.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold around 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a fantastic choice for garage clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more substantial waste disposal task to sort out, the builder’s skip could be the most suitable option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name indicates, these are the most popular sizes ordered by builders for building and demolition waste, like soil and hardcore. However they can just as well be hired for domestic waste such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also deliver 10-16 cubic yard bins and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For further information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Will the skip be supplied with a drop door?

Getting a skip which has a drop down door can make loading rubbish into the skip a lot easier. This is particularly the case with heavy waste materials like soil and hardcore, which can then be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading big bulky items such as household furniture much easier also.

Most skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, however it will sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when you place your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.

What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Hackney?

We have built our online booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. The first step is to enter your delivery address to check out the range of skip sizes we are able to provide in Hackney. Select the best size to meet your requirements and provide the details of where and when you want the skip delivered. Then you can make payment through the secure payment platform, and we’ll send an email to confirm the transaction once your order is complete!

What will happen to my rubbish once the skip is picked up?

After you have finished filling your skip, we come and get it. It will be transported to a waste recycling facility in or local to Hackney where we will sort the rubbish into its composite types (timber, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

How much waste will a builders skip hold?

The term builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The term comes from the fact that these are the most common sizes ordered by general builders and tradespeople.

These substantial skips are suitable for an array of household and commercial jobs. These are the biggest skips which you can use for weighty builders waste including soil, rubble and gravel.

Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Hackney?

Generally, it is possible to get a skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But to get this done, you have got to have consent from your local council in Hackney, which is called a skip permit. We will organise this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council do impose a fee for the license, and it can sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to approve this.

Will a Hackney skip hire company deliver my skip?

Since we offer a nationwide skip hire service, we utilise a diverse network of approved businesses. These vary from small family-run skip hire companies to national waste management providers. Our service providers are vetted to ensure they meet our high customer service and environmental principles.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

If you have a business in Hackney and need to dispose of large volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container may be a great choice. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers on the market.

As the name suggests, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, in contrast to standard skips, which are picked up by using chains.

Can you deliver skips across London?

Certainly, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can supply skips to areas across London, such as Hackney, Greenford, Fulham and Enfield. So regardless of where you need a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

How long can I keep a skip for?

The cost of hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, this will provide you with sufficient time to fill up the skip. However, if you need a bit more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Needless to say, in the event you finish with the skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your pick up. Just tell us when you have finished, and then we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.

How much does skip hire in Hackney cost?

To find out how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Hackney, enter your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you which skip sizes we provide in your location and how much each option will cost to hire. If the skip is going on the highway or any other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also have to be factored in.

Am I able to dispose of all kinds of waste in my skip?

This is among the most frequent questions people have about hiring a skip. The main thing to consider is that you can load your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous types of waste that could result from garden work, construction work and household clearances.

Some of the most common items that we collect in skips include dirt, wood, tree cuttings, kitchen units, toilets, as well as other household products.

There are also some waste materials that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. This includes any electrical products (refrigerators, TVs or computers for example), tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. They are all deemed hazardous waste, and disposing of them must adhere to a completely different process to make sure they don’t result in harm to the environment.

How big is the mini skip?

If you are searching for a cheap skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to handle many jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be placed on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit.

Although most frequently hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can also tackle smaller commercial jobs.

Is it okay to fill the skip higher than the level load mark?

You should not load the skip beyond the level load mark. If you fill it over the tip of this level, it means that your skip is not safe to move, and you could be asked to remove any extra rubbish prior to it being picked up.

Other areas covered include Greenford, Fulham, Enfield, Feltham, Finchley, Catford, Camberwell and Greenwich.
