Lambeth Skip Hire FAQs

What types of rubbish am I allowed to get rid of in a skip?

You can fill the skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly generated from loft clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include timber, dirt, stone, hedge trimmings, household furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.

What you put in the skip depends on the skip size you have hired, because there is a maximum weight restriction. For example, when you will be using your skip for heavy building waste such as bricks or garden soil, the largest size you can hire is the 8 cubic yard.

Some materials should not be disposed of in your skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.

What size is a builder’s skip?

As the name suggests, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most often supplied for building jobs. There are generally two skip sizes which can be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips which you can use to dispose of significant volumes of construction and demolition materials, including soil, rubble and stone.

Although branded a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for many other domestic and industrial waste disposal jobs.

What different sizes do skips come in?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Lambeth, you have several sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is fantastic for modest home clearances and DIY jobs.

The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold 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 represent the most common sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their big capacity also means they are well suited for household clear ups including large items such as furniture and beds.

We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people and businesses with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These containers are only appropriate for lightweight waste materials, so they can not be used to get rid of soil or stone.

For more information regarding the different skip sizes offered, including proportions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.

Am I able to throw electronic products in my skip?

Unfortunately it is not permitted, since electrical products including old televisions, fridges, computers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects must be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly way.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

If you manage a company in Lambeth and need to get rid of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a fantastic choice. Offered in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the biggest waste disposal containers that can be hired.

As the name suggests, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, unlike standard skips, that are picked up using chains.

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

The cost of hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to 2 weeks. Usually, that provides you with sufficient time to fill the skip. However, if you do need some more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Obviously, should you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange a pick up. Just contact us once you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.

Can I have a skip which has a drop down door?

In general, the majority of skips can be supplied with a hinged door, dependant upon size, availability and area. If you require a drop down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly helpful if you are hiring a big builder’s skip, since it enables you to wheelbarrow your rubbish directly into the skip. This isn’t so important for midi and mini skips, as they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Will you deliver skips across Greater London?

Yes, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver skips to areas throughout Greater London, including Lambeth, Lewisham, Waltham Forest and Romford. So no matter where you need a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

What will happen to the rubbish in my skip?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into the various waste materials, like timber, metals, plastics, etc. This means that as much of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you complete your order before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we strive to provide an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we request is that you ensure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery position, as unsuccessful deliveries will lead to a fee for the wasted journey.

Who will deliver my skip?

We use a network of both regional and nationwide skip hire firms to deliver skips to our clients in Lambeth and the rest of the UK. All of our partner firms are verified and evaluated to ensure they satisfy our expectations for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest skip provided by skip firms and is perfect for smaller DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of waste.

Instead of a 2 yard skip, some firms offer you a 3 cubic yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.

What is the cost of skip hire in Lambeth?

The cost of hiring a skip in Lambeth will depend on the size of skip you need. The lowest priced skip available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and clearances. If you need a larger skip, such as an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also increase if you need to have a skip on the highway, because you will require a permit, which the council charge a fee for.

If I need a skip on the road in Lambeth, will I need a permit?

Preferably, you want to have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. For anybody who is doing a household project, then the drive is going to be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. However, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public property, you have got to get a permit from the local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be located on a street, grass verge as well as other public property in Lambeth. If this is required, we will arrange for the permit to be granted for you. An additional cost, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your skip.

How can I order a skip online?

We have created our booking system with speed and simplicity at its core. The first step is to type in your delivery address to check out the range of skip sizes we can deliver in Lambeth. Pick the right size to meet your needs and give us the details of when and where you want the skip to be delivered. You can then make payment through the secure payment system, and we will send an email to confirm your order as soon as your order is complete!

Can I fill my skip above the level load line?

You must not fill up a skip beyond the level load mark. If you fill it up above the tip of this mark, it means that your skip will not be safe and secure to move, and you could be asked to remove any excess rubbish prior to it being picked up.

Do I need to be in when the skip is going to be delivered?

No, you don’t need to be at home when we are delivering your skip. Provided that we can gain access to the place you want it located, we will manage everything.

If you are not going to be in, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when you place the order. For example, you might prefer the skip to be located at a particular part of the property. Alternatively, you might need to ensure that the skip does not obstruct access to your garage.

Whatever the case may be, let us know when you place your order, and then we will ensure the directions will be passed on to the lorry driver.

Other areas covered include Lewisham, Waltham Forest, Romford, Wembley, Putney, Notting Hill, Kingston Upon Thames and Merton.
