Hampton Skip Hire FAQs
What will happen to my rubbish once the skip is picked up?
When you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste recycling station either in or local to Hampton where we sort the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you offer?
The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a large skip that can be used to dispose of large volumes of rubbish. These bins are mainly for business use but can be used by domestic clients as well. However, you will need a good amount of room since 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, roll-on roll-off skips can only be hired for lightweight materials like plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not suitable for disposing of soil and bricks.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Hampton, you have multiple sizes to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is excellent for modest household clearances and DIY tasks.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain 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 frequent sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their big capacity also means they are well suited for household tidy ups involving bulky items such as household furniture and beds.
We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for anyone with even bigger waste disposal needs. These sizes are only suited to lightweight waste materials, so they cannot be hired to get rid of garden soil or rubble.
For more details about the various capacities available, including dimensions, check out our help guide to skip sizes.
Can I put all kinds of waste in the skip?
Your skip can be hired to get rid of many different types of waste. We are experienced in picking up and processing a wide variety of materials from building work, garden projects and house clean-ups. A few examples of allowed waste materials can include:
- Pieces of furniture
- Hedge trimmings
- Garden soil
- Bathroom toilets and sinks
- Cabinets and units
Many waste materials are permitted, and so whether you need to dispose of metals, plastic materials, wood or textiles, we can usually take your waste away.
The quantity and waste types you put into the skip can vary depending on the size skip you have chosen. Skips have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So if you would like discard top soil and concrete, for example, the biggest size you would be permitted to use is the 8 cubic yard skip.
Are there any items which I can’t put in the skip?
There are some waste materials that you are not able to dump in the skip. The main reason for this is that some items incorporate hazardous materials which can be damaging to the environment. They may also be dangerous to human health, so they must be discarded separately within UK laws.
Some of the things that are restricted include:
- Paint tins
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas cylinders
- PC screens
Am I able to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
Electronic items such as tv sets, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous waste and so cannot be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered items must be segregated from other rubbish. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly manner.
Do all skips have a drop down door?
If you are getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop door. This is made for disposing of hefty building and demolition materials, as it can be pushed in to the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop-down door, however these are generally more uncommon. This is because these sizes are generally low enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our utmost to make sure a skip that has a drop door is supplied.
Who will deliver my skip?
Since we offer a national skip hire service, we use a comprehensive network of verified and approved companies. These range from small local skip hire companies to national waste management service providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to make sure they meet our high customer service and environmental requirements.
What size is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a low-cost skip to get rid of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to deal with 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 from the council.
Although most frequently hired by residential customers, the mini skip can even handle smaller commercial jobs.
How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?
The builder’s skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These will be the biggest skips that can be used to get rid of weighty building and demolition waste materials such as stone, concrete, rubble or soil.
The builder’s skip is great for a variety of jobs. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your bathroom or clearing the attic, these big containers tend to be the most affordable solution available.

Am I allowed to fill the skip higher than the top?
You must not load a skip past the level load line. When you fill it above the tip of this mark, it means your skip will not be safe to transport, and you could be asked to take off the excess rubbish before it can be collected.

If you need to have your skip placed on the highway or other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the additional cost of the skip permit.
How long can I hire a skip for?
You can generally keep a skip for up to 2 weeks from the day that it is delivered. To ensure that the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of providing a preferred collection time when you place your order.
Otherwise, just tell us when you’ve finished with your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.
It might take a bit longer to pick up your skip over busy periods, but we will always try to come as quickly as possible.
When will my skip be delivered?
If you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the next day. In some instances, we will even give you a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery days are confirmed when going through the online order process.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you don’t have to be home when we deliver your skip. Providing we can access where you want it delivered, we will take care of it all.
For those who are not likely to be in, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when you place your order. For example, you might want the skip to be dropped at a particular side of the driveway. Or you might need to ensure the skip does not hinder entry to your garage.
Whatever the situation may be, simply let us know when ordering, and we will ensure your instructions will be passed to the lorry driver.
