Kenley Skip Hire FAQs
Can I dispose of electrical products in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric objects must be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electronic items including tumble dryers, monitors, kettles, computers and even hairdryers.
What types of waste materials can I put in the skip?
A skip can be hired to discard many different types of waste materials. We are experienced in picking up and handling a multitude of materials generated from building jobs, garden landscaping and home tidy-ups. Examples of permitted waste types include:
- Garden trimmings
- Garden soil
- Bathroom suites
- Cabinets and units
Many waste types are accepted, therefore whether you need to throw out furniture, plastic materials, wood or unwanted toys, we can normally take your waste away.
The quantity and materials you throw into your skip may vary according to the size skip you have hired. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you want to get rid of soil and bricks, for example, the biggest size container you would be able to use will be the 8 yard builders skip.
What sort of items am I not allowed to put in my skip?
There are several materials which you will not be able to dump in your skip. The reason behind this is that some items contain hazardous materials which could damage the environment. They can even be hazardous to human health, and so they have to be discarded separately under UK regulations.
A few examples of the goods that are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas canisters
- Computer monitors
- Chemical substances

What is the cost of skip hire in Kenley?
Our aim is to provide the lowest priced skip hire service in Kenley. The price you pay will, of course, depend upon the size of skip you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you want to have a skip placed on the highway or any other council property, you will also have to factor in the additional expense of the skip permit.
How big is a builders skip?
As the name implies, a builders skip means the size of skip most frequently hired for building and construction jobs. There are typically two different sizes that may be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins which you can use to get rid of substantial amounts of construction and demolition materials, like earth, rubble and stone.
Even though they are branded a builders skip, these can of course be used for multiple other household and industrial waste disposal tasks.
How can I order a skip in Kenley?
We have created our online booking process with speed and simplicity in mind. The first task is to type in your address to view all the different skip sizes we can provide in Kenley. Select the best size to meet your requirements and give us the details of when and where you want your skip delivered. You can then make payment through the secure payment system, and we’ll send you an email to confirm the transaction once your order is done!
What size roll-on roll-off skips are available?
A roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a huge container that can be used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These containers are predominantly for commercial use but can be used by domestic customers as well. However, you will require a good amount of room as these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger than the average skip you will see on the side of the road.
Due to the size, roro skips should only be hired for light-weight materials such as plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not suited to getting rid of soil and rubble.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?
It is always a good idea to be available when anyone delivers something to your house. That enables you to ensure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be positioned exactly where you need it.
The same thing goes for those who have a business. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your booking prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot guarantee what time we will arrive with your skip, we strive to provide a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery spot, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can lead to a charge for the wasted journey.
Where will you take the waste from my skip?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The waste will get separated into various waste streams, including stone, soil and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish will be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
Will the skip come with a drop door?
When you are ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is perfect for getting rid of hefty building and demolition waste, as it can be walked in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also feature a drop-down door, though these are more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are typically low enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our utmost to make sure a skip that has a drop door is supplied.
Who will deliver my skip?
A local skip company will likely deliver your skip in Kenley. We utilize a network of both local and nationwide businesses to allow us to offer our service to domestic and business customers throughout the whole of the UK. These firms are thoroughly vetted to ensure they fulfill the high expectations we demand when it comes to service, price and environmental performance.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
Normally, you can have the skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you don’t have to hurry through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is full before the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Kenley?
Ideally, you want to have the skip dropped on a hard surface area. When you are doing a residential job, then your driveway will be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, if neither option is available, the street or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public land, you must obtain a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be dropped on a street, grass verge or other public property in Kenley. If this is required, we will arrange for the permit to be issued for you. An extra fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your skip.
Will you deliver to other areas in Greater London?
Sure, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skips to areas throughout Greater London, including Kenley, Lee, Welling and Redbridge. So no matter where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
Is it okay to load the skip higher than the top?
It is important not to overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being required to remove surplus waste prior to it being collected. Irrespective of what size you hire, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, since transporting an overloaded skip is hazardous, as waste could drop and result in injuries or damage to others.
To avoid this issue, please ensure that you hire a skip size suited to your waste disposal needs. If your skip is full but you have extra rubbish to dispose of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.
What size is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a low-cost skip to dispose of some household rubbish, a mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to handle numerous jobs.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be situated on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit.
Although most often chosen by household customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.
