Harrow Skip Hire FAQs
How long will it take to get a skip in Harrow?
We can typically supply skips to Harrow the next working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking program gives you a range of delivery dates to select from. So whether you would like the skip to arrive ASAP or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
Is it okay to fill up the skip higher than the level load mark?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this makes it dangerous to move, and you will probably be asked to remove any items higher than the level load mark. This means that you cannot make use of sheets of timber, doors or some other object, as this will increase the size of the skip. Skip companies have a legal duty of care to make sure that skips aren’t overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure to select the appropriate sized skip to meet your requirements and get in touch if you’re uncertain which size is best. We will be happy to help.
Do all skips have a drop down door?
Generally, the majority of skips can be provided with a drop door, dependant upon skip size, availability and location. If you need a drop-down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip which has a drop door is primarily beneficial if you are choosing a big builder’s skip, since it enables you to wheelbarrow rubbish into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini skips, because they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Am I allowed to throw electrical items in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items have to be kept separate from general rubbish to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electrical products such as cookers, televisions, kettles, laptops and even hairdryers.
How can I order a skip in Harrow?
Ordering a skip in Harrow with us is incredibly easy. Pick the skip size you want and then enter a few details about when and where you need the skip to be delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and then prepare to get your skip delivered on the date selected.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
You can generally hire a skip for up to two weeks from the date that it is delivered. To ensure the pick up is as convenient as possible, you will have the option of providing a preferred collection day when making your order.
Alternatively, just let us know when you’ve finished with the skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the next working day.
It might take a little longer to collect your skip during busy periods, however we will always try to be there as swiftly as possible.
Will a skip hire company from Harrow deliver my skip?
A local skip firm will most likely deliver your skip in Harrow. We utilize a network of both local and nationwide companies to allow us to offer our service to domestic and business customers throughout the whole of the UK. These firms are thoroughly assessed to be sure they fulfill the high principles we demand with regards to service, price and environmental performance.
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Harrow, you will have numerous options to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard skip, also known as a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact skip is fantastic for modest domestic clearances and DIY work.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most common sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also means they are suitable for house clear ups involving bulky items such as pieces of furniture and beds.
We can offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for anyone with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These containers are only suited to lightweight waste materials, so they can not be hired to dispose of soil or concrete.
To get more details about the different sizes available, such as dimensions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are perfect for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and old baby toys to paving slabs and concrete. Having a volume of about 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip could save you having to make several journeys to your local recycling centre.
What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a large container that is used to get rid of large volumes of waste. These bins are predominantly for industrial use but can be used by household customers too. However, you need lots of space as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger than the average skip you will see on the side of the road.
As a result of the size, these skips can only be provided for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, and so they are not suited to getting rid of concrete and rubble.
What will happen to my waste once the skip is collected?
When you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and get it. It will be taken to a waste transfer centre either in or local to Harrow where we segregate 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.
Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Harrow?
In most cases, it is possible to have your skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But in order to do this, you will need to have consent from your local authority in Harrow, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to order this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for this license, and it will sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.
Do you deliver to other areas in Greater London?
We provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service through a network of approved and fully licensed local partners. So whether you are interested in skip hire in Harrow, Merton, Ilford, Kenley or another location in Greater London, we are able to assist.
Do I have to be home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
You don’t really need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered, but it does help. Being in when your skip is due to be delivered means you can ensure the lorry is given complete access and that your skip will be placed exactly where you want it. Likewise, if the skip is delivered to your company premises, we will appreciate your help at the time of delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
However, for those who can’t be available during delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you place your order, and we will organise things from there.
How much will skip hire in Harrow cost?
This is determined by the skip size you require and whether you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the least expensive choice. The most expensive and largest choice is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in business settings.

What kinds of rubbish can you throw in a skip?
You are allowed to fill your skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly produced from house clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include timber, garden soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, household furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you put in the skip will depend on which skip size you have hired, because there is a weight limit. For instance, in the event that you will be using your skip for heavy construction wastes including bricks or garden soil, the maximum size you can hire is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials should not be discarded in your skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The name builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These will be the biggest containers that can be used to discard heavy building and construction materials such as stone, concrete, rubble or garden soil.
A builders skip is great for a number of projects. If you are getting an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or clearing out your garden shed, these substantial skips tend to be the most cost-effective option available.
