Haringey Skip Hire FAQs

Where does my waste be taken to when the skip is collected?

The materials in your skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station. Here the waste will be segregated by machines and by hand into numerous waste streams, like soil, plastics, hardcore and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to increase the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the amount of waste ending up in landfill.

Can you deliver to other areas in London?

Certainly. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we can supply skips to domestic and business customers across London and elsewhere in the UK.

Will a skip hire company from Haringey deliver my skip?

To offer a thorough skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work with a number of local and national companies. This allows us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to make sure we can offer customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.

What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?

You are able to load the skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly produced from garage clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include wood, dirt, concrete, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.

What you throw in your skip would depend on the size you have ordered, because there is a weight restriction. For example, when you will be using a skip for heavy construction wastes including bricks or garden soil, the maximum size you would be able to get is an 8 yard builders skip.

Some materials can not be disposed of in the skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.

Do all skips come with a drop down door?

Generally speaking, the majority of skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, depending on size, availability and area. If you require a drop down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip with a drop door is mainly beneficial if you are hiring a large builder’s skip, since it enables you to wheelbarrow waste into the skip. This is not as important for mini skips, because they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ensure your skip is delivered on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the very next day.

Although we cannot promise a precise delivery time, we will do our very best to reach you within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

It is important to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will in most cases incur a fee for the wasted journey.

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

You should not fill the skip past the level load line. If you load it over the tip of this level, it means that your skip is not safe to transport, and you can be asked to take off the extra waste prior to it being picked up.

What size skips can you supply?

We offer a full variety of skip capacities to household and business clients all over the UK. We have a skip to suit all needs – from the modest 2 cubic yard mini skip to the enormous 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.

Here are the various sizes offered, with a rough guide to how much waste each size can hold:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
  • 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
  • 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
  • 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
  • 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
  • 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
  • 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
  • 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

How long can I keep a skip for?

You can generally keep the skip for up to 14 days from the day that it is delivered. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, you have the choice of offering a preferred collection time when you make your order.

Otherwise, just let us know when you’ve finished with your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the following working day.

It might take a little bit longer to pick up your skip during busy times, but we will always endeavour to be there as swiftly as possible.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Haringey?

This will depend on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need to have a permit when it is put on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if your skip is on private property, like a driveway or on your business premises.

If you have to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Just tell us while completing the order process, and then we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can locate your skip on your own land, you will save some money.

Do I need to be in when the skip will be delivered?

No, you don’t need to be at home when we deliver your skip. As long as we can gain access to where you need it positioned, we will take care of it all.

In the event you are not likely to be at home, just let us know any relevant delivery instructions when placing the order. For instance, you may prefer the skip to be located at a particular part of the property. Alternatively, you may want to ensure the skip does not prevent entry to your garage.

Whatever the situation may be, tell us when you place your order, and then we will ensure your instructions are passed on to the delivery driver.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

A roll-on roll-off skip, often referred to as a RORO, is a massive container that is used to dispose of large amounts of waste. These bins are predominantly for business use but can be used by domestic clients as well. Having said that, you will want plenty of space as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger in comparison to the typical skip you will likely see on the roadside.

As a result of the size, roll-on roll-off containers can only be hired for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not appropriate for disposing of concrete and bricks.

What is classed as a builder’s skip?

A builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These will be the biggest containers used to discard substantial building waste such as rock, bricks, rubble or garden soil.

The builders skip is perfect for a wide range of projects. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your bathroom or cleaning out the garden shed, these big skips tend to be the most affordable option available.

What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Haringey?

Hiring a skip in Haringey through us is incredibly straightforward. Choose the skip size you need and enter a couple of details about where and when you want the skip delivered. Then you can pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and prepare to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.

How much waste can a mini skip hold?

If you are searching for a low cost skip to get rid of some household rubbish, the mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to handle numerous jobs.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be positioned on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit.

Although most frequently chosen by household customers, the mini skip can even be used for smaller commercial jobs.

Am I allowed to get rid of electronic items in my skip?

I’m afraid it is not permitted, as electrical items such as old TVs, refrigerators, laptops and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items need to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly way.

Other areas covered include Coulsdon, Dagenham, Barnet, Balham, Chessington, Clapham, London and Finchley.
