Skip Hire Hayes
If you are planning to clear out a garden shed, remodel a tired looking kitchen, or perhaps unclutter a messy kids bedroom, a skip is an easy and cost-effective way to get rid of what is getting in your way. Our Hayes skip hire service offers a simple solution – we drop the skip off, you load it up, and then we collect it.
For those who have a small amount of rubbish to dispose of, the mini skip may be a perfect option. Interested in something a little bigger? Perhaps the 4 cubic yard skip could be the solution. Or maybe you have got a big project on your hands, like building an extension or throwing out some old furniture. For this, we can offer a range of large builder’s skips. However large or small your waste needs might be, we can offer the skip which is perfect for the circumstances.
Be it to your house or even your business, we can supply a skip to wherever you need it in Hayes. Jobs may occur anyplace, and our skips will be there to meet your needs.

How can I order a skip online?

Select the right size to meet your requirements and provide the details of where and when you want the skip to be delivered. Then you can make payment through the secure payment system, and we will send an email to verify the transaction as soon as your order is complete!
What happens to my rubbish once the skip is collected?
The materials in your skip will be taken to the local waste recycling facility. Here the contents will be sorted by machines and by hand into numerous waste materials, including metal, plastics, stone and timber. Processing the waste in this manner helps to increase the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the quantity of waste that ends up in landfill.
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are great for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and broken toys to paving slabs and bricks. With a volume of about 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip will save you having to make multiple journeys to your local recycling centre.
How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a substantial container used to get rid of large volumes of waste. These containers are primarily for business use but can be hired by domestic clients too. However, you will need a good amount of room because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger than the average skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
Due to the size, roll-on roll-off containers can only be provided for light materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not suitable for getting rid of concrete and rubble.
How big is a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These will be the largest containers that can be hired to get rid of weighty building and construction waste materials such as stone, concrete, gravel or clay.
A builders skip is ideal for a number of tasks. If you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning out your loft, these big containers tend to be the most cost-effective choice available.
Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, since electrical products including old TVs, fridges, pcs and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects need to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly manner.
How long does it take to get a skip in Hayes?
We can usually supply skips to Hayes the next working day when your order is placed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking system will provide you with a variety of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you need your skip to arrive asap or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
What types of waste can I put in a skip?
Before hiring your skip, it is important to ensure that the sort of waste materials you need to dispose of is allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials need to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Some examples of waste types you are able to discard in your skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You could also use your skip to get rid of building and demolition rubbish, including wood, top soil, stone, metals and concrete.
Some examples of restricted items include things like electrical products, tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all classed as hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.
Is it okay to stack up waste in my skip?
Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this will make it dangerous to move, and you will have to remove any items higher than the level load line. This also means that you cannot make use of sheets of wood, doors or any other object, as this will increase the height of the skip. We have a legal duty to make sure that skips aren’t overfilled or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure you select the appropriate size of skip to meet your requirements and get in contact if you’re unsure which size you require. We would be pleased to help.
Will a skip hire company from Hayes deliver my skip?
Since we provide a national skip service, we utilise an extensive network of approved companies. These range from small local skip hire firms to nationwide waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to ensure they match our high customer service and environmental standards.
How long can I hire a skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, that provides you with plenty of time to fill up the skip. However, if you do need some more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, if you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange a pick up. Just let us know when you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is delivered?
It is always best if you can be there when anyone delivers anything to your home. That allows you to make sure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be positioned just where you want it.
The same thing applies if you have a business. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.
However, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
We are able to supply a full range of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip ideal for small DIY tasks and house clearances. A popular choice for more substantial tasks, renovations and building work is the 8 yard skip.
For Hayes businesses which have a large amount of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Hayes?
Generally, it will be possible to have a skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to get this done, you must get approval from your local authority in Hayes, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for this license, and it may sometimes take 24-2 days for them to approve this.
How much does skip hire in Hayes cost?
This will depend on the skip size you will need and whether you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the least expensive choice. The most costly and largest option is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used primarily in commercial settings.

Do all skips have a drop down door?
Generally speaking, nearly all skips can be provided with a drop down door, dependant upon the size, availability and area. If you require a drop down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip that has a drop door is primarily beneficial when you are hiring a large builder’s skip, as it enables you to wheelbarrow your rubbish straight into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, since they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
