Marlow Skip Hire FAQs
What things can I put in my skip?
A skip can be used to get rid of lots of different types of waste. We are used to picking up and processing a wide variety of items from construction jobs, garden landscaping and household clean-ups. A few examples of permitted waste types can include:
- Home furniture
- Garden cuttings
- Top soil
- Bathroom sinks and toilets
- Kitchen cabinets and units
The majority of waste materials are generally permitted, and so whether you want to throw out furniture, plastics, wood or textiles, we can normally take your waste away.
The quantity and materials you put in the skip may vary according to which size skip you hired. All skips do have a weight limit for safety reasons. So to be able to dispose of soil and hardcore, as an example, the biggest size you will be allowed to use is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
What type of items am I not allowed to put in the skip?
There are several materials you are not allowed to put in the skip. The reason behind this is that some goods include hazardous materials which may damage the environment. They may also be damaging to human health, and so they need to be discarded separately under UK legislation.
A few examples of the things that are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas canisters
- Computer screens
- Battery packs
How long can I keep the skip for?
Normally, you can have a skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you don’t have to rush through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to collect it as quickly as possible.
How large 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 containers are ideal for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.
They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and old toys to paving blocks and rubble. With a capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you needing to make several journeys to your local recycling centre.
How much will skip hire in Marlow cost?
The price of getting a skip in Marlow is determined by the size of skip you need. The lowest priced option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you need a bigger skip, such as an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also be more if you want to have a skip on the highway, as you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
How much waste can a builders skip hold?
The builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. They are the biggest containers used to get rid of heavy building waste such as rock, bricks, rubble or dirt.
The builders skip is great for a number of jobs. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing out the garage, these substantial skips are often the most cost-effective option available.
How soon can you deliver a skip to Marlow?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it for you on a day that best suits you. We will typically provide 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, as to go on public property (like a street), you must obtain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of many factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it turning up within a AM or PM slot.
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
The waste in the skip will be taken to a local waste transfer facility. Here the waste will be segregated by machines and also by hand into various waste streams, like metal, cardboard, concrete and timber. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to increase the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is to maximise recycling and minimise the amount of waste ending up in landfill.
Can you deliver to other areas in Buckinghamshire?
Sure, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can provide skips to areas across Buckinghamshire, such as Marlow, Milton Keynes, Beaconsfield and Amersham. So no matter where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
How many different skip sizes are available?
We are able to provide a full-range of skip sizes to match your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip perfect for modest DIY jobs and house clearances. A common option for larger sized tasks, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Marlow companies which produce a big amount of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Is it okay to fill my skip above the top?
It is important never to overfill your skip, as you risk being told to take off excessive waste prior to it being collected. Regardless of the size you hire, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, since transporting an overloaded container is dangerous, as rubbish could drop and lead to personal injury or damage to other people.
To avoid this problem, please ensure you order a skip size suitable for your waste removal requirements. If the skip is full but you have extra rubbish to get rid of, we are happy to organise an exchange.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Marlow?
In most cases, it is possible to have your skip located on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But in order to do this, you must get permission from your local authority in Marlow, which is known as a skip permit. We will order this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The council do charge a fee for this permit, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.
How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are large industrial scale skips that are used predominantly in the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them excellent for organisations that generate large amounts of waste materials.
Am I able to dispose of electrical products in the skip?
Unfortunately not, since electrical items including old TVs, fridges, pcs and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects have to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly way.
Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?
It is always best if you can be in when anybody delivers something to your property. You can then ensure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be positioned exactly where you need it.
The same thing applies for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.
However, should it be unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.

Am I able to get a skip with a drop down door?
When you are ordering 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 waste materials, as it can be pushed into the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop door, however these are generally more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are generally low enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, let us know when ordering. We will do our best to make sure a skip with a drop door is provided.
