Below are some of the frequently asked questions we get with regards to our skip hire service.
Hastings Skip Hire FAQs
Am I able to put electronic items in my skip?
Unfortunately it is not permitted, because electronic products including old televisions, cookers, pcs and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items have to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly fashion.
How do you order a skip?
This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you would like to hire. Let us know whether the skip shall be going on private property (a drive, for example) or public property (such as the street). Then, select the date you want the skip to get delivered. Check your order and make payment with our safe and secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Hastings on the day you have chosen.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Hastings?
The cost of getting a skip in Hastings depends on the size of skip you require. The least expensive skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and general clearances. If you require a larger skip, like an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The price will also be more if you need to have the skip positioned on the highway, because you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Do I need to be there when the skip is due to be delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be in on the day the skip is delivered. You can then ensure that the lorry has complete access and that the skip is located exactly where you need it. This also is true for those who have a skip delivered to company premises, particularly if gates restrict access.
However, if that is not possible, you do not have to stress. Just let us know when making your booking, and we will take care of everything.
How many different skip sizes are available?

Will you deliver to other areas in East Sussex?
Along with delivering our range of skips to Hastings, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across East Sussex. With the help of our network of local and national skip companies, we offer a totally nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Hastings, Newhaven or Seaford, we have got you covered.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Hastings?
In most cases, it will be possible to have a skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But in order to do this, you need to get approval from your local authority in Hastings, which is called a skip permit. We will organise this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The council do charge a fee for the license, and it can sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to approve this.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Hastings?
We use a large network of both regional and nationwide skip hire companies to deliver skips to our clients in Hastings and the rest of the UK. All of our partner skip hire companies are approved and tested to ensure they satisfy our expectations for price, customer service, recycling and reliability.
What types of waste can I put in the skip?
You are allowed to fill the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly generated from house clearances, building work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include wood, soil, stone, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you throw in your skip would depend on the skip size you have ordered, because there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, in the event that you will be using a skip for heavy building waste such as stone or top soil, the maximum size you could use is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials should not be disposed of in the skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
Is it ok to pile up waste in my skip?
It is important to not overfill a skip, as you risk being told to take out excessive waste prior to it being picked up. Whatever size you hire, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a safety condition, because transporting an overloaded skip can be unsafe, as waste could drop and cause injury or damage to other people.
To prevent this situation, please be sure you order a skip size suitable for your waste removal needs. If your skip is full but you have some more waste to get rid of, we are happy to organise an exchange.
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you offer?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container used to dispose of large quantities of waste materials. Predominantly, these type of containers are hired for industrial purposes. Having said that, domestic customers may also hire them. You have to think about the area they will occupy, since they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they can only be utilised for lightweight materials including paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of garden soil and rubble.
Will the skip be supplied with a drop door?
When you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop down door. This is designed for getting rid of heavy building and construction waste materials, as it can be pushed in to the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also include a drop down door, however these are generally less common. Simply because these sizes are typically small enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our best to ensure a skip with a drop door is provided.
How long can I keep a skip for?
Generally, you can keep a skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you don’t need to rush through your project. If you have finished your project or the skip is loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will make sure your skip is provided on the day requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the very next day.
Although we are not able to promise a precise delivery time, we will always do our very best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You have to make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery effort will in most cases incur a charge for the wasted journey.
What will happen to the rubbish?
After you have finished with your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste recycling facility in or local to Hastings where we separate the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
What is a builders skip?
The builder’s skip is regarded as the popular skip which is used in the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builder’s skip is fantastic for most building and demolition jobs, which is where the label comes from.
The 8 yard builders skip will be the largest option that you can use for hefty waste materials like soil, concrete, rock and rubble.
How big is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a cheap skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to take on numerous jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be positioned on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.
Although most often hired by household customers, the mini skip can also be used for smaller commercial jobs.
