High Wycombe Skip Hire FAQs
Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?
The items in the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling centre. Here the waste will be separated by machinery and also by hand into various waste materials, including metal, cardboard, hardcore and timber. Processing the waste in this way helps to increase the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the volume of waste that ends up in landfill.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in High Wycombe?
Normally, it is possible to have the skip placed on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to do this, you have got to have consent from your local council in High Wycombe, which is known as a skip permit. We will arrange this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council do impose a fee for the permit, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
What is classed as a builder’s skip?
As the name indicates, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most frequently used for construction projects. There are generally two different skip sizes that can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips which can be used to dispose of significant quantities of construction and demolition waste materials, including earth, rubble and bricks.
Although they are labelled a builder’s skip, they can be used for a number of other household and commercial waste disposal tasks.

Is it okay to stack up the waste in my skip?
Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this makes it unsafe to move, and you will probably have to remove any items higher than the level load line. This means you can not use sheets of wood, doors or some other item, since this will increase the height of the skip. Skip companies have a legal duty of care to ensure that skips are not overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure you hire the appropriate size of skip to suit your needs and get in touch if you are not sure which size you require. We will be glad to help.
What size skips do you supply?
We supply a full range of skip sizes to match your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip excellent for small DIY tasks and household clearances. A common option for larger projects, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For High Wycombe businesses which generate a large volume of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What can I put in the skip?
Before getting a skip, you must ensure that the kind of rubbish you need to get rid of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials need to be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Waste types you are able to throw in your skip include home goods like furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You can also use a skip to throw out building and demolition rubbish, like old bricks, soil, rubble, metals and concrete.
Examples of prohibited items include electronic items, tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and subsequently must be disposed of separately from your general waste.
How large is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are fantastic for small DIY jobs and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.
They can be used to get rid of all types of waste, from house furniture and broken toys to paving blocks and soil. Having a volume of approximately 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip will save you needing to make several trips to the local recycling centre.
Will a High Wycombe skip hire company deliver my skip?
A local skip company will most likely deliver your skip in High Wycombe. We work with a network of both local and national providers to allow us to offer our service to customers throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are vetted to guarantee they match the high principles we demand with regards to service, price and environmental performance.
Do I have to be home when the skip is delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be there when the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure that the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip is positioned exactly where you need it. The same applies when you have a skip delivered to company premises, especially if gates limit access.
On the other hand, if this isn’t feasible, you do not need to stress. Just tell us when making your booking, and then we will take care of everything.
Am I able to throw away electronic products in my skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, since electronic items like old televisions, cookers, computers and monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects have to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly way.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
For anyone who is selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop-down door. This is designed for disposing of heavy building and demolition rubbish, as it can be walked in the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also feature a drop door, although these are typically less common. Simply because these sizes are generally small enough on the ends for you to 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 make sure a skip with a drop door is provided.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you provide?
If you manage a company in High Wycombe and need to dispose of large volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a fantastic choice. Available in 20 to 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers that are available.
As the name indicates, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, unlike regular skips, that are lifted by using chains.
How fast can you deliver a skip to High Wycombe?
When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the very next day. In some instances, we can even provide a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed as part of the order process.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
Generally, you can keep the skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you don’t have to rush through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is full before the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to collect it as quickly as possible.
