Maidenhead Skip Hire FAQs
How long can I keep a skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to two weeks. In most cases, that provides you with sufficient time to load your skip. However, if you need some more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Of course, if you finish with your skip sooner, we are happy to arrange a pick up. Just let us know once you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as quickly as possible.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
Skips are available in a number of different sizes to match various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is great for small residential tasks.
Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold roughly 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is often described as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a great choice for shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.
For those who have a more significant waste disposal task to undertake, a builder’s skip might be the best option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title indicates, they are the most popular sizes hired by builders for building waste, including soil and hardcore. However they can just as well be hired for domestic waste such as old furniture or bathroom suites.
We also supply 10-16 yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further details about the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
If you operate a business in Maidenhead and wish to get rid of large amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a fantastic choice. Offered in 20 to 40 cubic yards, these are the largest waste disposal skips that are available.
As the name implies, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, unlike standard skips, which are picked up using chains.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Maidenhead?
This depends upon the size you need and if you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the lowest priced choice. The most expensive and largest choice is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in industrial settings.

How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?
When you have a small amount of waste to throw out, a mini skip might be the best solution. What size is called a mini skip differs from company to company, depending on what sizes they have.
The most common size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies opt to provide a 3 cubic yard container as their smallest option. Price is based on the specific size you order, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are ideal for domestic jobs including small DIY projects and garden shed tidy ups. If you need it positioned on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
What things can I put in my skip?
Before you hire your skip, you must make sure that the sort of waste materials you intend to get rid of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials need to be kept separate and cannot be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types it is possible to throw in your skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You can also use your skip to throw out building and demolition rubbish, like wood, dirt, rubble, metals and gravel.
Examples of forbidden items include electrical items, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently must be discarded separately from your general waste.

Ordering a skip in Maidenhead through us is incredibly easy. Pick the skip size you need and enter a couple of details about where and when you need your skip to be delivered. Then you can pay for the skip using our secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and prepare to get your skip delivered.
What skip sizes can have a drop door?
Having a skip which has a drop door can make filling waste into the skip so much easier. This is especially true with hefty waste materials such as soil or concrete, which can then be walked directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading big bulky items like pieces of furniture easier also.
Most skip containers can be provided with a drop door, although this may sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when you place your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.
Should I be in when the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t really need to be at home when the skip is delivered, however it does help. Being there when the skip is delivered means you can ensure the driver can be given complete access and that your skip is positioned precisely where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is delivered to business property, we will appreciate your help at the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
Even so, in the event you can’t be around for delivery, don’t worry. We just ask that you let us know when you place your order, and then we will organise things from there.
Can I fill my skip higher than the level load mark?
No, you are only allowed to fill the skip up to the level load line. Piling waste up over this line makes it unsafe to move, and you may be asked to take off the excess waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes using doors, or any other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip dangerous and it could also make it overweight.
Will a skip hire company from Maidenhead deliver my skip?
A local skip company will likely deliver your skip in Maidenhead. We work with a network of both regional and nationwide businesses to enable us to provide our service to domestic and business customers throughout the whole of the UK. These firms are comprehensively vetted to guarantee they fulfill the high expectations we require with regards to service, cost and environmental performance.
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?
The materials in your skip will be taken to a local waste transfer station. Here the contents will be sorted by machinery and also by hand into numerous waste streams, such as soil, paper, rubble and wood. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to increase the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.
Am I allowed to get rid of electronic products in my skip?
Electronic items like TVs, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore can not be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical items should be segregated from other materials. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly manner.
How fast can you deliver a skip in Maidenhead?
We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your order prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we endeavour to provide an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery position, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can lead to a charge for a wasted trip.
What is classed as being a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. They are the biggest containers that can be used to dispose of substantial building and demolition waste materials such as rock, concrete, gravel or dirt.
A builders skip is great for a wide array of jobs. If you are getting an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or cleaning out the attic, these substantial skips will often be the most cost-effective option available.
If I require a skip on a road in Maidenhead, will I need to get a permit?
This will depend on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a skip permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if the skip is on your private property, like a driveway or within your company premises.
If you have to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Just let us know while completing the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can place the skip on your own property, it will save you some money.
