Maldon Skip Hire FAQs
How long will it take to get a skip in Maldon?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive, we try to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery site, as failed delivery attempts will result in a fee for the wasted trip.
Will a Maldon skip hire company deliver my skip?

How much will skip hire in Maldon cost?
This will depend on the size you require and whether you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the cheapest choice.

What skip sizes do you supply?
We can supply a full-range of skip sizes to meet your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip best for small DIY projects and domestic clearances. A common choice for more substantial jobs, refurbishments and building work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
For Maldon companies which produce a big amount of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be in on the day it is delivered. You can then ensure the lorry has full access and that the skip is located precisely where you need it. This also is true if you have a skip delivered to business property, particularly if gates restrict access.
However, if this isn’t feasible, you don’t have to worry. Just tell us when you are placing your order, and we will handle the rest.
Will the skip come with a drop door?
Generally speaking, almost all skips can be provided with a drop door, depending on size, availability and location. If you require a drop down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.
Having a skip with a drop door is mainly useful if choosing a large builder’s skip, as it enables you to wheelbarrow waste materials directly into the skip. This is not as important for mini skips, because they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
If I would like a skip on a road in Maldon, will I need to have a permit?
Generally, it will be possible to get the skip placed on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But in order to do this, you must get permission from your local council in Maldon, which is called a skip permit. We are able to organise this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for the permit, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
Generally, you can keep a skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you don’t need to hurry through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is loaded before the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.
Can I dispose of electronic products in my skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, as electrical items such as old televisions, fridges, computers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items have to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly fashion.
Is it ok to pile up the waste in my skip?
You should not fill a skip past the level load mark. When you fill it over the tip of this level, it means your skip is not secure to transport, and you can be asked to remove any extra waste before it can be picked up.
What is the process of ordering a skip in Maldon?
Hiring a skip should not be hard. That is why we have made the order process as easy as possible. First, type in your delivery address to see all the different skips we are able to deliver to Maldon. Choose which size you would like to hire, and confirm if it will be dropped on private property. Enter in your details and make payment using our secure online payment platform.
When your order is complete, we will send you a confirmation email with all of your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
What kinds of waste can I get rid of in a skip?
Your skip can be used to get rid of many different types of waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and handling a wide variety of materials produced from construction jobs, garden landscaping and household tidy-ups. A few examples of permitted waste types can include:
- Pieces of furniture
- Hedge cuttings
- Top soil
- Bathroom sinks
- Cabinets and units
The majority of materials are generally allowed, and so whether you want to throw out furniture, plastics, timber or fabric, we can usually take your waste away.
The quantity and things you put in your skip can vary according to the size skip you ordered. Skips do have a weight limit for safety. So if you want to dispose of garden soil and bricks, for example, the biggest size container you would be allowed to use would be the 8 yard skip.
What type of items am I not allowed to put in a skip?
There are a few waste materials you are not able to dump in your skip. The main reason for this is that these goods incorporate hazardous elements which could be harmful to the environment. They could also be dangerous to human health, therefore they must be discarded separately under UK law.
Examples of the goods that are restricted include:
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas cylinders
- PC monitors
- Battery packs
- Chemical substances
How big is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are substantial industrial size skips that are used mainly in the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them excellent for businesses that produce significant quantities of waste.
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into different waste streams, like wood, metals, plastics, etc. This means that the maximum amount of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How large is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are perfect for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and old baby toys to paving blocks and bricks. With a total capacity of about 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you needing to make multiple journeys to your local recycling centre.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most often supplied for building work. There are generally two sizes that can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips which you can use to get rid of significant quantities of building and demolition materials, including dirt, concrete and rock.
Even though they are labelled a builders skip, they can be used for multiple other domestic and business waste disposal tasks.
