Hoddesdon Skip Hire FAQs

Will you deliver skips across Hertfordshire?

Along with delivering skips to Hoddesdon, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Hertfordshire. Through our network of regional and national skip hire and recycling businesses, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to Hoddesdon, Elstree or Bushey, we have got it covered.

How many different skip sizes are available?

Skips are offered in a number of different sizes to suit different waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small household tasks.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold roughly 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is often described as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a good choice for shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more substantial waste disposal task to take on, the builder’s skip may be the smartest choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title indicates, these are the most popular sizes used by builders for building and demolition waste, like clay and hardcore. But they can just as well be hired for domestic waste such as broken furniture or kitchen units.

We can also provide 10-16 yard skips and industrial 20-40 yard RORO containers. To get more info on all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What is the process of hiring a skip in Hoddesdon?

This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you would like to hire. Tell us if the skip will be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on public property (like the street). Next, choose the day you want your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Hoddesdon on the day you have chosen.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container that can be used to get rid of huge quantities of waste materials. Mostly, these type of containers are hired for business uses. However, domestic clients can also use them. It is very important think about the space they occupy, because they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they must only be hired for lightweight waste like paper, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of soil and stone.

Will the skip have a drop down door?

Virtually all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, making them much easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you require a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.

A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the bin, particularly with heavy materials, like garden soil and concrete, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky objects, like furniture.

Do I need to be there whenever the skip will be delivered?

It usually is best if you can be available when anybody delivers anything to your home. You can then ensure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be dropped just where you want it.

The same applies for those who have a company. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.

However, if it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.

What size is a mini skip?

If you are searching for a low cost skip to get rid of some household waste, the mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to handle numerous jobs.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be placed on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.

Although most often chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can also tackle small commercial jobs.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

You can typically keep a skip for as long as two weeks from the delivery date. It is possible to provide a chosen collection date when you make your order. Alternatively, you can tell us after you have finished, and we will arrange the collection. In most cases, this will be the next working day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer over hectic times.

Is it okay to load my skip higher than level load line?

No, you are only allowed to fill up your skip up to the level load mark. Piling rubbish up over this line will make it dangerous to move, and you might be asked to remove the excess waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes using doors, or other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.

What types of waste am I able to put in a skip?

You are allowed to load your skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly produced from home clearances, building work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include wood, dirt, rubble, garden trimmings, household furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.

What you throw in your skip would depend on the size you have ordered, because there is a weight limit. For example, in the event that you will be using the skip for heavy construction waste like concrete or top soil, the biggest size you could hire is an 8 yard skip.

Some materials cannot be discarded in a skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.

Can I get rid of electronic items in my skip?

Electric powered objects like tv sets, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore can not be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered products should be segregated from other materials. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly manner.

Will a skip hire company from Hoddesdon deliver my skip?

A local skip hire firm will likely deliver your skip in Hoddesdon. We employ a network of both local and nationwide businesses to enable us to offer our service to domestic and business customers across the whole of the UK. These companies are thoroughly assessed to make sure they meet the high principles we require in terms of customer service, price and environmental performance.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Hoddesdon?

Generally, it is possible to have your skip positioned on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But to do this, you have got to get permission from the local council in Hoddesdon, which is known as a skip permit. We will arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The council do impose a fee for the license, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the following day. Sometimes, we can even offer a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed during the order process.

What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?

The materials in your skip will be taken to a local waste transfer facility. Here the rubbish will be sorted by machines and also by hand into numerous waste materials, including soil, paper, stone and timber. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to increase the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is always to maximise recycling and minimise the quantity of waste that has to go in landfill.
