Littlehampton Skip Hire FAQs

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is probably the most popular skip ordered across the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builder’s skip is fantastic for most building work, which is where the name comes from.

The 8 yard builder’s skip is the largest size which can be used for heavy materials including soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.

Can I throw all sorts of rubbish in the skip?

You are allowed to throw a wide array of waste in the skip. This includes wood, tile, plastics or rubble from a house clearance. Plant and bush clippings, top soil and rock from garden jobs are allowed too. Dated units from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be thrown in a skip.

There are, however, some materials that you cannot put in a skip a result of the possible environmental or health risk they can trigger.

You cannot throw out your fridge, laptop or car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also not allowed in the skip. All of these things contain hazardous elements in one form or another. They must be discarded separately from normal waste.

If you need hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to schedule a separate collection for this waste. Please get in touch for further details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling facility.

Will a Littlehampton skip hire company deliver my skip?

As we provide a national skip service, we use an extensive network of approved businesses. These include small family-run skip hire firms to national waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental principles.

What are the different skip sizes to choose from?

Skips are offered in a number of different sizes to suit various waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bags of waste, which is ideal for small residential jobs.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold approximately 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yd is an excellent choice for shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more substantial rubbish disposal job to take on, a builder’s skip could be the most suitable option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title indicates, these are the most frequent sizes used by builders for building and demolition waste, such as soil and stone. But they can just as well be used for household rubbish such as broken furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also supply 10-16 cubic yard skips and industrial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. To get more details about the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

How large is a mini skip?

If you are looking for a low cost skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to handle many tasks.

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

Although most frequently hired by household customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.

Am I able to get a skip that has a drop down door?

Getting a skip with a drop door helps make loading waste into it a lot easier. This is especially the case with hefty waste like dirt and rubble, which can then be walked straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading up large bulky objects such as household furniture much easier as well.

The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, but this will sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when placing your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our very best to supply this.

When will my skip be delivered?

If you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the very next day. In some cases, we will even give you a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery days are confirmed during the online order process.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

You can typically keep the skip for as long as 2 weeks from your date of delivery. You may provide a preferred collection date when you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can let us know after you have loaded the skip, and we will plan the collection. Generally, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer during hectic periods.

Can I throw electrical products in the skip?

Electronic products like televisions, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore can not be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered products must be segregated from other materials. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly way.

How much does skip hire in Littlehampton cost?

Our goal is to deliver the cheapest skip hire service in Littlehampton. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have a skip placed on the highway or other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the extra price of the skip permit.

How do I order a skip?

This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you wish to hire. Tell us if the skip is going to be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or local authority property (such as the road). After that, pick the day you need your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Littlehampton on the date you have chosen.

Do you deliver to other areas in West Sussex?

We provide a nationwide skip hire and recycling service using a network of verified and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Littlehampton, Horsham, Petworth, Hassocks or another area in West Sussex, we can help.

What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?

A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a huge skip that is used to get rid of large quantities of waste. These bins are primarily for business use but can be hired by residential clients too. However, you need plenty of room as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger when compared to the typical skip you will see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, roro skips can only be used for light materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, and so they are not suited to getting rid of soil and rubble.

Is it ok to fill up my skip above the top?

No, you can only pack your skip up to the level load line. Stacking waste materials up above this line will make it dangerous to move, and you could be told to remove the excess waste before the skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to increase the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.

Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?

You don’t need to be home when the skip will be delivered, however it can help. Being there when your skip is being delivered means that you can ensure the driver is given full access and that your skip can be placed precisely where you want it. Likewise, if your skip is being delivered to a business property, we will appreciate your help during the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.

Having said that, in the event you can’t be around during delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you place your order, and then we will organise things from there.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Littlehampton?

In the vast majority of cases, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you want your skip to be situated on land outside of your business or house, you will need to get permission from the local authority in Littlehampton, which is called a permit. If necessary, we would be happy to arrange this for you, and so it’s one less issue to worry about. The council will charge a fee for the skip license, plus you should know before booking that securing the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.

Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?

Once 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 separated into the different waste streams, such as wood, metals, plastics, etc. This means that as much of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Other areas covered include Horsham, Petworth, Hassocks, Bognor Regis, Chichester, Southwick, Shoreham-by-Sea and Pulborough.
