Isleworth Skip Hire FAQs
Am I able to throw electrical products in the skip?
Electronic items like television sets, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore can not be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical objects have to be segregated from other materials. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly manner.
How big is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are fantastic for small DIY tasks and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and old baby toys to paving blocks and bricks. With a total capacity of approximately 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you having to make multiple trips to the local recycling centre.

We will immediately display the sizes we provide in your area and how much each one will cost to order. If your skip will be on the highway or any other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also have to be factored in.
Will a Isleworth skip hire company deliver my skip?
Since we offer a national skip hire service, we utilise a diverse network of verified and approved companies. These can include small family-run skip hire firms to national waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to ensure they meet our high customer service and environmental requirements.
Should I be in when the skip will be delivered?
You don’t have to be at your property when the skip will be delivered, however it can help. Being there when the skip is due to be delivered means you can ensure the lorry driver can be given full access and that your skip is located exactly where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is hired to a business premises, we will appreciate your help during the time of delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
Having said that, when you can’t be around during delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you place your order, and then we will arrange everything from there.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is probably the most frequent skip hired across the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builder’s skip is perfect for most building projects, which is where the label comes from.
The 8 yd builders skip will be the biggest size that can be used for heavy waste matter such as soil, concrete, rock and rubble.
What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets segregated into several different waste types, including wood, soil and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish will be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Will my skip come with a drop down door?
Generally, nearly all skips can be provided with a drop down door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you need a drop-down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Having a skip with a drop door is primarily useful if choosing a big builder’s skip, as it means that you can wheelbarrow rubbish directly into the skip. This isn’t so important for midi and mini skips, as they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Isleworth?
This depends on where the skip is going to be located. You will only require a permit when it is placed on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit when your skip will be on your private property, like a drive or inside your business premises.
If you have to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know during the order process, and then we can make the necessary arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position the skip on private land, it will save you a few pounds.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
You can typically keep a skip for as long as 14 days from your date of delivery. You may provide a preferred collection date at the time you make your order. Otherwise, you can tell us once you have finished, and then we will plan your collection. Normally, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take a bit longer over busy periods.
What can I put in the skip?
Before getting a skip, it is essential to ensure that the type of waste materials you intend to discard will be allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials need to be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Some examples of waste types you may discard in your skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use a skip to get rid of building and demolition waste, like old bricks, dirt, stone, metals and gravel.
Examples of restricted items include things like electronic items, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all considered hazardous waste materials and subsequently must be disposed of separately from your general waste.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you want your skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you have asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your booking before 3pm Monday to Friday, we will normally have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will deliver your skip, we endeavour to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery spot, as unsuccessful deliveries can lead to a charge for a wasted journey.
What sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Isleworth, you will have several sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard skip, also known as a mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is excellent for modest house clearances and DIY work.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most frequent sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also makes them suitable for house tidy ups involving large objects like pieces of furniture and beds.
We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people with even bigger waste disposal requirements. These skips are only appropriate for light materials, so they cannot be hired to get rid of soil or rubble.
For additional information regarding the different capacities available, such as proportions, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
A roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a huge container that can be used to dispose of large amounts of rubbish. These containers are mainly for industrial use but can be hired by household customers as well. However, you should have plenty of room as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger than the typical skip you will see on the roadside.
Due to the size, roll-on roll-off skips can only be provided for lightweight materials like plastics, timber and paper, so they are not suited to disposing of soil and rubble.
Can I fill up my skip higher than the level load mark?
You should not fill up your skip beyond the level load line. If you fill it above the tip of this mark, it means that the skip will not be secure to move, and you might be asked to take off the excess waste prior to it being collected.
