Hampstead Skip Hire FAQs
How many different skip sizes are there?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Hampstead, you have multiple sizes to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is excellent for small home clearances and DIY tasks.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most popular sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their big capacity also makes them perfect for house tidy ups involving large items like furniture and beds.
We are able to provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for customers with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These skips are only suitable for light materials, so they can’t be hired to dispose of soil or stone.
For more information regarding the various capacities offered, such as dimensions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
Normally, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you don’t need to rush through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is full prior to the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to collect it as quickly as possible.
What size skips have a door?
Typically, nearly all skips can be provided with a drop door, dependant upon the size, availability and location. If you want a drop-down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip that has a drop door is primarily useful if you are choosing a big builder’s skip, as it lets you wheelbarrow rubbish into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, as they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?
It is vital not to overload the skip. You can not pass the level load mark shown on the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it will become very unsafe to move. This means that if you overload the skip, you may be required to take away the surplus waste. Regardless of how secure you believe the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This is dangerous and is prohibited.
What will happen to the waste?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into different waste streams, like wood, metals, plastics, etc. This makes sure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How much will skip hire in Hampstead cost?
Our goal is to offer the lowest priced skip hire service in Hampstead. The price you pay will, of course, depend on the size of skip that you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have a skip placed on the highway or any other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the added cost of a skip permit.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container that can be used to transport huge volumes of waste. Predominantly, these type of skips are used for commercial uses. However, domestic customers may also hire them. You will need to consider the area they take up, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they must only be used for light waste including plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of dirt and stone.

Will a Hampstead skip hire company deliver my skip?
As we offer a national skip hire service, we use a comprehensive network of verified businesses. These vary from small local skip hire companies to national waste management service providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to ensure they match our high customer service and environmental standards.
Can I dispose of electrical products in my skip?
Electrical products including tv sets, freezers, fridges, computer systems, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore cannot be placed in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered products have to be separated from other rubbish. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.
Will you deliver skips across London?
Absolutely. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we can offer skips to both residential and industrial customers throughout London and anywhere else in the UK.
If I need a skip on the road in Hampstead, will I need to get a permit?
This depends on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only require a skip permit when it is placed on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit when your skip will be on your private property, such as a drive or within your company premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Simply let us know while completing the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can have your skip on private property, it will save you a few pounds.
Do I need to be there whenever the skip is delivered?
No, you don’t need to be home when we are delivering the skip. So long as we are able to gain access to the place you want it located, we can manage it all.
If you will not be at home, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when placing your order. For instance, you may need the skip to be positioned on a particular part of the driveway. Or you may want to ensure that the skip doesn’t prevent access to your garage.
Whatever the situation may be, tell us when you place your order, and then we will ensure the instructions will be passed to the lorry driver.
What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in the skip?
Before you hire your skip, it is essential to make sure that the type of rubbish you want to discard is allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials must be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
A few examples of waste types you are able to throw in a skip include home goods like furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You may also use your skip to dispose of building and construction waste, including bricks, top soil, rubble, metals and concrete.
Examples of forbidden items include electrical products, car tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently need to be discarded separately from general waste.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is regarded as the frequent skip hired across the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builder’s skip is great for most building and demolition tasks, which is where the name stems from.
The 8 yard builder’s skip is the biggest option that you can use for heavy waste materials like garden soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.
How soon can you deliver a skip to Hampstead?
We will ensure your skip will be delivered on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the very next day.
Although we cannot guarantee an exact delivery time, we will always do our best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You should make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery attempt will most likely incur a fee for the wasted journey.
How much waste will fit in a mini skip?
When you have a small quantity of rubbish to throw out, a mini skip could be the ideal solution. What size is described as a mini skip differs from business to business, according to what sizes they provide.
2 cubic yards is the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some companies choose to have a 3 yard container for their smallest option. The price is based on the actual size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are good for household tasks like modest DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you want it put on your driveway and need room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
