Luton Skip Hire FAQs
What happens to my waste once the skip is picked up?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets separated into various waste types, which includes timber, metals and plastics. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection is recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
Our standard hire time frame is two weeks from the delivery date. However, at the time you book the skip, you can provide a collection date that is best for you. Obviously, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if your skip is full sooner than anticipated, tell us, and we will get it picked up as quickly as possible.
We can usually be out to get your skip within 48 hours. But, it is important to remember that this is not always the case during busier periods. Once collected, your waste will be transported to your local waste recycling facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
Am I allowed to fill the skip higher than the top?
It is important to not overfill a skip. You should not pass the level load line that is indicated along the side of the skip. When the skip is overfilled, it can be very hazardous to transport. Which means that if you overload your skip, you might be asked to remove the excess waste. Regardless of how secure you feel the skip to be, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This can be dangerous and is prohibited.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container used to dispose of significant quantities of waste materials. Generally, these skips are used for commercial uses. However, domestic clients may also use them. It is very important think about the area they will take up, since they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they should only be utilised for light waste like plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of dirt and rubble.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Luton?
We utilise a network of both regional and nationwide skip hire firms to deliver skips to our customers in Luton and the rest of the country. All of our partner skip hire providers are verified and evaluated to ensure they satisfy our standards for price, service, recycling and reliability.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ensure your skip is provided on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the following day.
Although we can’t guarantee an exact delivery time, we will always do our very best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
It is important to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a failed delivery attempt will in most cases incur a charge for the wasted journey.
Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Luton?
This depends on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a skip permit if it is positioned on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if your skip will be on private property, such as a driveway or inside your business premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us while completing the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with your local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can place your skip on private land, you will save a few pounds.
How large is the mini skip?
The mini skip will be the most compact skip offered by skip companies and is good for small DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some firms provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the 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.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?
No, you don’t have to be at home when we are delivering your skip. So long as we can access where you want it positioned, we will manage everything.
If you will not be at home, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when you place your order. For example, you might need the skip to be dropped at a particular side of the driveway. Or you might need to make sure the skip doesn’t block use of your garage.
Whatever the situation may be, provide the information when you place your order, and then we will make sure the instructions are passed on to the lorry driver.
What can I put in my skip?
You are able to fill the skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly produced from garage clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include wood, soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, household furniture, toys, cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you put in your skip will depend on which skip size you have hired, because there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, in the event that you are using your skip for heavy construction waste including concrete or dirt, the largest size you would be able to get is an 8 cubic yard.
Some materials cannot be disposed of in the skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.
Will you deliver to other areas in Bedfordshire?
We offer a national skip hire service using a network of verified and fully licensed local companies. So whether you want skip hire in Luton, Houghton Regis, Shefford, Woburn or another area in Bedfordshire, we can help.
Do all skips have a drop down door?
Getting a skip which has a drop door makes filling waste into it so much easier. This is particularly true with hefty waste materials like dirt and hardcore, which can then be walked directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away big bulky items like pieces of furniture much easier also.
The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, but this will sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when you make your online order if a drop door is required, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.
Can I throw away electrical products in the skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects need to be kept separate from general waste to get recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electronic items like cookers, televisions, toasters, tablets and even hair straighteners.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yard skip. The label stems from the fact that they are the most typical sizes that are ordered by general builders and tradespeople.
These large skips are fantastic for numerous types of household and commercial tasks. They are the biggest skips which you can use for heavy builders waste including garden soil, rubble and concrete.
