Hedge End Skip Hire FAQs
What size roll-on roll-off containers are available?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are large industrial scale skips used primarily in the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them excellent for companies that produce large quantities of waste materials.
How big is a builder’s skip?
A builder’s skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. They are the largest skips that can be used to discard heavy building and demolition waste such as stone, concrete, rubble or soil.
A builder’s skip is ideal for a wide array of tasks. Whether you are having an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or cleaning the loft, these substantial skips will often be the most affordable option available.
Is it ok to load my skip higher than level load mark?
It is important not to overfill your skip, as you risk being required to take off surplus waste prior to it being picked up. Whatever size you order, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a safety condition, since moving an overloaded bin can be dangerous, as materials could drop and result in injuries or damage to other people.
To avoid this issue, please make sure you order a skip size suitable for your waste removal needs. If your skip is full and you have additional rubbish to get rid of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.
Where will my rubbish go when the skip is collected?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The waste will get separated into several different waste streams, such as stone, metals and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to minimising environmental impact by sending as little to landfill as possible!
Do I have to be there when the skip is delivered?
No, you do not need to be at home when we are delivering the skip. Providing we can gain access to the place you want it positioned, we can manage it all.
If you will not be at home, simply provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when you book your order. For instance, you may prefer the skip to be located on a particular area of your property. Or you may want to ensure the skip does not prevent use of your garage.
No matter what the case might be, simply let us know when you place your order, and we will ensure your directions will be passed to the delivery driver.
What different sizes do skips come in?
We are able to supply a wide selection of skip sizes to match your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip suitable for modest DIY projects and house clearances. A common option for larger sized jobs, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
For Hedge End businesses with a large quantity of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the street in Hedge End?
In most cases, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you want your skip to be located on land outside of your business or home, you will have to receive permission from your local authority in Hedge End, which is known as a skip permit. If necessary, we will gladly organise this on your behalf, and so it’s one less issue to worry about. The council does charge a fee for your permit, and you should be aware before placing your order that obtaining the permit will often take up to 2 working days.

After that you can pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and then prepare to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
How long will it take to get a skip in Hedge End?
We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your order before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we can’t promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we strive to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery area, as unsuccessful deliveries can lead to a fee for the wasted trip.
Will my skip have a drop down door?
In general, nearly all skips can be provided with a drop door, dependant upon the size, availability and area. If you require a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip which has a drop door is mainly beneficial if choosing a large builder’s skip, since it lets you wheelbarrow waste materials into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini and midi skips, since they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Can I dispose of all kinds of waste in the skip?
You are allowed to put a wide array of waste types in the skip. This includes wood, floor tiles, metal or rubble from a property clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, top soil and rock from garden work is permitted also. Cupboards from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also go in your skip.
There are, however, some items that you cannot put in a skip due to the potential environmental or health risk they can trigger.
You can not get rid of your fridge, printer or car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. All of these items incorporate hazardous components in one kind or another. They should be disposed of separately from normal rubbish.
Should you need hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to organise an independent service for this waste. Feel free to contact us for more information. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
Am I able to throw away electronic products in my skip?
No, you can not put old electronic waste products in your skip. This can include such things as laptops, cookers, tumble dryers, refrigerators and tv sets. These products can’t be discarded in the skip because they can contain dangerous materials and components.
Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact skip offered by skip firms and is designed for small DIY tasks, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some companies offer you a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
