Hailsham Skip Hire FAQs
Can I fill the skip above the level load line?
It is essential not to overfill a skip. You can not pass the level load line shown along the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it will become very dangerous to transport. Which means that when you overfill the skip, you might be asked to take off the excess rubbish. However safe you feel the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This can be hazardous and is not allowed.
How much will skip hire in Hailsham cost?
Our aim is to provide you with the lowest priced skip hire service in Hailsham. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip that you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you need to have the skip positioned on the road or any other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the extra price of a skip permit.
What kinds of waste am I allowed to put in a skip?
Before hiring your skip, you must make sure that the kind of waste you wish to get rid of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials have to be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Waste types it is possible to discard in a skip include household goods like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You could also use your skip to get rid of building and demolition waste, such as old bricks, soil, stone, metals and concrete.
Some examples of forbidden items include electrical goods, car tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all considered hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately from any general rubbish.
How quick can you deliver a skip to Hailsham?
If you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the next day. In some cases, we will even give you a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery days are confirmed during the online order process.
What size is a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most often supplied for construction projects. There are typically two different skip sizes that may be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers which can be used to get rid of large quantities of building and demolition waste, including dirt, rubble and bricks.
Although they are labelled a builders skip, these can be used for various other residential and industrial waste disposal tasks.

Along with delivering skips and containers to Hailsham, we can also deliver to other towns and villages throughout East Sussex. With the help of our network of local and national waste management businesses, we provide a truly nationwide service.

Will a skip hire company from Hailsham deliver my skip?
Since we provide a UK-wide waste management service, we utilise a comprehensive network of verified and approved companies. These range from small family-run skip hire companies to national waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to ensure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental principles.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
Normally, you can keep your skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you don’t need to rush through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.
How do you hire a skip in Hailsham?
This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you want to hire. Let us know if the skip shall be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or local authority property (such as the road). After that, choose the day you need your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment with our secure online payment platform. That’s it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Hailsham on the day you have selected.
Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the road in Hailsham?
In most cases, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you want your skip to be situated on land outside of your business or residence, you will have to get permission from your local authority in Hailsham, which is called a permit. If required, we will be happy to organise this for you, and so it’s one less issue to think about. The council will charge a fee for the road permit, and you should know before booking that securing the licence will often take up to two working days.
Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?
It is usually best if you can be in when anyone delivers something to your house. You can then make sure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be positioned exactly where you want it.
The same goes if you have a business. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not there.
Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.
Can I throw away electrical items in the skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, since electrical items including old TVs, cookers, pcs and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items must be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly fashion.
Can I have a skip that has a drop down door?
Generally speaking, nearly all skips can be supplied with a hinged door, dependant upon skip size, availability and location. If you require a drop door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Having a skip which has a drop door is mainly useful when hiring a big builder’s skip, as it means that you can wheelbarrow waste straight into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini and midi skips, because they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest skip provided by skip firms and is perfect for smaller DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms offer you a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
What skip sizes do you supply?
We supply a full range of skip sizes to match your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip best for small DIY tasks and household clearances. A common option for larger sized tasks, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard skip.
For Hailsham firms which have a large quantity of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a large container that is used to dispose of large amounts of rubbish. These skips are mainly for business use but can be hired by household customers also. Having said that, you need lots of space as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger when compared to the typical skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
As a result of the size, these 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 will happen to the rubbish when the skip is picked up?
Once you have finished filling your skip, we come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste recycling station either in or local to Hailsham where we will segregate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.
