Havering Skip Hire FAQs
How large is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact containers are fantastic for small DIY tasks and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and old toys to paving slabs and rubble. With a volume of around 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip can save you having to make several trips to the local recycling centre.
Do I have to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?
No, you do not have to be home when we are delivering the skip. As long as we can gain access to where you need it delivered, we will take care of it all.
In case you will not be at home, simply provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when placing the order. For example, you might want the skip to be positioned at a particular part of your drive. Alternatively, you might want to ensure that the skip does not block access to your garage.
Whatever the situation may be, provide the details when ordering, and we will make sure the directions will be passed to the lorry driver.
Will you deliver to other areas in Greater London?
Indeed, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can provide our range of skips to areas across Greater London, such as Havering, Ruislip, Whetstone and Mitcham. So regardless of where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
How quickly can you deliver a skip in Havering?
We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you have asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you confirm your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we will normally have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we can’t promise what time we will deliver, we try to offer you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery area, as unsuccessful deliveries will result in a fee for a wasted journey.
How long can I keep the skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, that will provide you with sufficient time to fill up the skip. However, if you do need a bit more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, if you finish with your skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just tell us when you have finished, and we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.
What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into different waste streams, including wood, cardboard, paper, etc. This ensures that as much of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Will the skip come with a drop down door?
Typically, nearly all skips can be provided with a drop down door, dependant upon skip size, availability and area. If you need a drop door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip which has a drop door is mainly useful if you are hiring a big builder’s skip, since it lets you wheelbarrow your waste straight into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini and midi skips, as they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most frequently hired for construction work. There are generally two sizes that can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that can be used to get rid of significant quantities of building and demolition waste, including soil, rubble and rock.
Even though they are branded a builders skip, these can be used for many other household and industrial waste disposal jobs.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Havering?
This depends on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need a permit when it is placed on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit if the skip will be on your private property, such as a drive or inside your company premises.
If you have to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Just tell us as part of the order process, and then we will make the necessary arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place the skip on private land, you will save some pounds.
How much will skip hire in Havering cost?
To find out how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Havering, type in your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly display which sizes we offer in your location and how much each size costs to hire. If your skip is going to be on the road or other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also have to be factored in.
Am I allowed to put electrical products in my skip?
No, you cannot dispose of old or broken electronic waste items in your skip. This includes such things as printers, microwaves, dishwashers, freezers and television sets. Electronic objects can’t be disposed of in the skip since they can contain hazardous materials and components.
Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot go to landfill and should be recycled.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are huge industrial scale skips that are used primarily within the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for companies that produce large quantities of waste.
What is the process of ordering a skip in Havering?
Hiring a skip in Havering with us is very easy. Decide on the skip size you require and input a handful of details about when and where you would like the skip to be delivered. After that you can pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and then arrange to have your skip delivered on the date selected.
What types of waste am I able to get rid of in a skip?
A skip can be used to get rid of many different types of waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and processing numerous items from building work, garden landscaping and house tidy-ups. Examples of permitted waste types include things like:
- Home furnishings
- Hedge trimmings
- Garden soil
- Bathroom toilets and sinks
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Many materials are allowed, therefore whether you would like to throw out metals, plastic materials, wood or old toys, we can usually take your waste away.
The volume and items you discard in your skip will vary according to which size skip you hired. All skips do have a weight limit for safety purposes. So if you wish to discard top soil and concrete, for example, the biggest size container you will be able to hire will be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Are there items that I can’t discard in the skip?
There are some materials you will not be allowed to throw out in your skip. The main reason for this is that some goods contain hazardous materials that may harm the environment. They may also be dangerous to human health, and so they need to be disposed of separately within UK regulations.
Some examples of the products that are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas cylinders
- PC screens
- Battery packs
- Car tyres
- Chemical substances
Can I stack up waste in my skip?
You must not fill the skip past the level load line. If you load it over the tip of this mark, it means that the skip will not be secure to transport, and you may be asked to remove any excess waste before it can be collected.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
This site offers a full selection of skip sizes to residential and business customers throughout the UK. We have a skip to suit all needs – from the modest 2 yard mini skip to the huge 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Below are the various sizes on offer, with a rough idea of how much waste each skip is capable of holding:
- 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
