Henley-on-Thames Skip Hire FAQs

How much waste will the mini skip hold?

When you have a small quantity of rubbish to get rid of, the mini skip could be the best option. What size is called a mini skip is different from company to company, according to what sizes they have.

2 cubic yards is considered the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to provide a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. The price is dependent on the specific size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are fantastic for residential jobs like modest DIY projects and garage clean ups. If you need it placed on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.

Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?

After you have finished with your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste recycling facility in or local to Henley-on-Thames where we segregate the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.

Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the street in Henley-on-Thames?

This depends on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit when your skip will be on your private property, like a drive or within your business premises.

If you do need to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know during the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can have the skip on your own land, it will save you a few pounds.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

You can typically have your skip for as long as 14 days from your delivery date. You are able to provide a chosen collection date when you place your order. Alternatively, you can tell us when you have loaded the skip, and we will prepare the collection. Normally, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take a little longer during busy times.

Can I throw away electronic items in the skip?

No, you cannot dispose of old or broken electronic waste items in a skip. This includes such things as laptops, cookers, dishwashers, freezers and computer monitors. Electric items can’t be thrown in the skip since they can include dangerous materials and components.

Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot be sent to landfill and should be reused or recycled.

What things can I put in the skip?

A skip may be used to get rid of a variety of types of waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and processing numerous items generated from building jobs, garden landscaping and property tidy-ups. A few examples of allowed waste products can include:

  • Home furnishings
  • Hedge cuttings
  • Top soil
  • Concrete
  • Bathroom suites
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Many waste types are generally accepted, therefore whether you need to get rid of furniture, plastic materials, timber or old toys, we can normally take your waste away.

The volume and items you discard in the skip may vary depending on which size skip you chosen. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you would like dispose of garden soil and gravel, as an example, the largest size container you will be permitted to use would be the 8 cubic yard skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in the skip?

There are a few materials that you will not be allowed to dump in your skip. The reason behind this is that these products incorporate hazardous elements that may harm the environment. They could also be hazardous to human health, and so they must be disposed of separately within UK legislation.

A few examples of the products that are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas cylinders
  • Computer monitors
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Do I need to be in when the skip will be delivered?

You don’t really need to be home when the skip is going to be delivered, however it does help. Being in when your skip is being delivered means you can make sure the driver is given complete access and that your skip will be positioned precisely where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is being delivered to a company property, we will appreciate your support at the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.

Even so, when you can’t be available for the delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you place the order, and then we will arrange everything from there.

What size roll-on roll-off skips do you offer?

The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a huge container used to get rid of large volumes of waste. These containers are predominantly for commercial use but can be used by residential customers as well. Having said that, you will require a good amount of space as these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger than the average skip you will see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, roll-on roll-off skips should only be used for light-weight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not appropriate for getting rid of concrete and bricks.

Although we cannot guarantee what time we will arrive, we try to offer you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we request is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery area, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can lead to a fee for a wasted journey.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is the most popular skip that is hired across the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builders skip is ideal for most building and construction projects, which is where the label comes from.

The 8 cubic yard builders skip will be the largest size which you can use for heavy materials like dirt, concrete, bricks and rubble.

Am I allowed to pile up waste in my skip?

It is essential to not overload a skip. You should not pass the level load line that is indicated along the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it will become very hazardous to move. This means that if you overfill your skip, you could be asked to take away the excess rubbish. No matter how secure you believe the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. That is unsafe and is prohibited.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips come in a variety of different sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is ideal for small household projects.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold around 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a good option for loft clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more substantial rubbish disposal job to undertake, the builder’s skip could be the smartest choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name indicates, these represent the most typical sizes used by builders for construction waste, such as soil and rubble. However they can just as well be used for domestic rubbish such as old furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also deliver 10-16 yard bins and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For more information about the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Henley-on-Thames?

Our aim is to provide you with the most affordable skip hire service in Henley-on-Thames. The price you pay will, naturally, depend on the size of skip you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you wish to have the skip situated on the highway or any other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the additional price of the skip permit.

Is it possible to get a skip which has a drop door?

Typically, almost all skips can be provided with a drop door, depending on size, availability and location. If you need a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip with a drop door is mainly beneficial when you are choosing a big builder’s skip, as it lets you wheelbarrow rubbish straight into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini and midi skips, because they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Other areas covered include Watlington, Kidlington, Burford, Chipping Norton, Carterton, Oxford, Thame and Banbury.
