Below are some of the frequently asked questions we have received with regards to our skip hire and recycling service.
Horndean Skip Hire FAQs
What happens to my waste when the skip is picked up?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets sorted into a range of waste types, which includes stone, soil and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the collection will be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
You can usually hire a skip for up to a fortnight from the date that it is delivered. To ensure that the collection will be as convenient as possible, there is the choice of giving a preferred collection day when making your order.
Otherwise, just tell us when you have finished loading up your skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the next working day.
It may take a little longer to pick up your skip during busy times, however we will always endeavour to come as swiftly as possible.
What waste am I allowed to put in the skip?
Before you hire your skip, it is important to ensure that the type of rubbish you wish to discard is allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials have to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you are able to discard in a skip include household goods like furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You may also use your skip to get rid of building and construction waste, including old bricks, top soil, rubble, metals and gravel.
Examples of forbidden items include things like electronic goods, tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. They are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently must be disposed of separately from your general waste.
What is classed as being a builders skip?
A builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These are the largest containers that can be hired to get rid of substantial construction materials such as stone, bricks, gravel or dirt.
The builder’s skip is perfect for a number of tasks. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning out the garden shed, these substantial skips will often be the most cost-effective solution available.
How many different skip sizes are available?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Horndean, you will have several sizes to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact container is fantastic for modest home clearances and DIY work.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most frequent sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. But their big capacity also makes them ideal for household clearances including large objects such as furniture and beds.
We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for people and businesses with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These containers are only appropriate for light materials, so they can’t be hired to get rid of garden soil or stone.

What is the cost of skip hire in Horndean?
To find out how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Horndean, type in your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you the skip sizes we offer in your location and how much each one costs to order. If the skip will be on the street or any other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also have to be factored in.
Will a skip hire company from Horndean deliver my skip?
We utilise a network of both local and national skip hire companies to supply skips to our clients in Horndean and the rest of the country. Each of our partner skip hire companies are verified and evaluated to make sure they match our standards for price, service, recycling rates and reliability.
How soon can you deliver a skip to Horndean?
When your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a day that best suits you. We will typically give you a following day delivery service for orders arranged prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, because to be on public property (such as a street), you need to obtain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of many factors that may impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it turning up within a AM or PM slot.
What is the process of ordering a skip in Horndean?
Ordering a skip should not be difficult. This is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, enter in your address to see all the different skips we can deliver to Horndean. Pick the size you want to order, and confirm if it is going to be located on your own property. Enter in your details and make payment using our secure payment platform.
After your order is complete, we will send a confirmation email with your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are huge industrial size skips used predominantly in the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for businesses that produce significant volumes of waste.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Horndean?
Normally, it will be possible to get the skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But in order to do this, you will need to have permission from the local authority in Horndean, which is called a skip permit. We will arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for your permit, and it can sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to approve this.
Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
Unfortunately not, because electrical items including old televisions, fridge freezers, pcs and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects need to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly manner.
How large is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a cheap skip to get rid of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to tackle numerous tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be located on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.
Although most commonly chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can even handle smaller commercial jobs.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
When you are hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop door. This is ideal for getting rid of hefty building and construction materials, as it can be pushed in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also have a drop down door, although these are generally less common. Simply because these sizes are generally small enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to make sure a container which has a drop door is delivered.
Do I need to be there whenever the skip will be delivered?
You don’t really need to be home when your skip is being delivered, but it will help. Being home when the skip is due to be delivered means that you can make sure the lorry driver can be given complete access and that the skip can be dropped exactly where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is hired to your business property, we will appreciate your assistance during the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.
Having said that, in the event you can’t be available during the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask you to let us know when you book your order, and we will organise things from there.
Can you deliver skips across Hampshire?
Absolutely. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we are able to supply skips to both household and industrial customers across Hampshire and anywhere else in the UK.
Am I allowed to stack up waste in my skip?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this makes it dangerous to transport, and you will probably have to empty any contents higher than the level load line. This also means you are unable to make use of sheets of timber, doors or any other item, as this will increase the size of the skip. We have a legal duty of care to make sure that bins are not overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure that you select the appropriate sized skip for your requirements and get in contact if you’re not sure which size is best. We would be pleased to help.
