Lydd Skip Hire FAQs

Who will deliver my skip?

To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work with a wide range of local and nationwide businesses. This allows us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to offer customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are great for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.

They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and old baby toys to paving blocks and soil. With a capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip could save you needing to make several visits to your local recycling centre.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

Usually, you can keep a skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you don’t have to hurry through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded before the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.

How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?

If you manage a business in Lydd and want to get rid of large amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container could be a great choice. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers on the market.

As the label suggests, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, unlike conventional skips, which are lifted using chains.

How many different skip sizes are available?

We provide a whole variety of skip sizes to residential and business customers throughout the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the modest 2 cubic yard mini skip to the massive 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.

Listed below are the different skip sizes on offer, with a rough idea of how much waste each size is capable of holding:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
  • 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
  • 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
  • 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
  • 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
  • 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
  • 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
  • 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

How long will it take to get a skip in Lydd?

Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it for you on a day that suits you. We can typically give you a next day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip on private property, because to go on public property (for example a street), you must gain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.

As a result of several factors that may impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it turning up within a AM or PM slot.

What waste materials can I put in my skip?

This is one of the most frequent questions people have about hiring a skip. The main thing to keep in mind is that you can fill your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of types of waste which will result from garden projects, building work and home clearances.

Among the most typical things that we find in our skips include dirt, timber, tree cuttings, kitchen cabinets, sinks, as well as other household items.

There are also some materials that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. This consists of any electrical goods (tumble dryers, televisions and computers for example), car tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all considered hazardous waste, and therefore disposing of them must comply with a completely different process to ensure they do not cause damage to the environment.

What happens to the rubbish?

The items in your skip will be taken to the local waste recycling facility. Here the waste will be separated by machinery and by hand into different waste streams, like metal, plastics, concrete and wood. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to maximise the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.

Is it ok to pile up the waste in my skip?

You should not fill a skip past the level load mark. When you load it over the tip of this level, it means that your skip will not be safe and secure to move, and you can be asked to take off the extra rubbish before it can be picked up.

Which size skips have a drop door?

When you are hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop door. This is designed for getting rid of heavy building and demolition materials, as it can be pushed into the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop-down door, although they are less common. The reason being these sizes are generally small enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you prefer a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our utmost to make sure a container that has a drop door is provided.

Can you deliver skips across Kent?

We will instantly display which skip sizes we offer in your location and how much each size costs to hire.

What is the size of a builders skip?

The builder’s skip is regarded as the common skip ordered throughout the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builder’s skip is fantastic for most building tasks, which is where the name comes from.

The 8 yd builders skip is the biggest size that you can use for heavy materials like soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.

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

In the majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you would like the skip to be located on land outside of your business or house, you need to get authorisation from the local council in Lydd, which is referred to as a permit. If required, we will be happy to arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less thing to think about. The council does charge a fee for your skip license, plus you should know before ordering that getting the licence can sometimes take up to two working days.

Am I able to get rid of electrical products in my skip?

I’m afraid it is not permitted, since electrical items like old TVs, fridges, laptops and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items need to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly manner.

Do I need to stay in when the skip is delivered?

You don’t have to be at your property when your skip is being delivered, however it can help. Being there when the skip is due for delivery means that you can ensure the lorry driver is given complete access and that your skip will be dropped precisely where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is delivered to a company property, we will appreciate your help at the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.

However, for those who can’t be available for the delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask that you tell us when you book your order, and we will organise things from there.

Other areas covered include Queenborough, Northfleet, Herne Bay, Southborough, Dartford, Maidstone, Chatham and Gravesend.
