Below are some of the common questions we receive with regards to our skip hire service.
Milton Keynes Skip Hire FAQs
How long can I hire a skip for?
You can usually keep a skip for up to two weeks from the delivery date. You are able to provide a preferred pick up day at the time you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can let us know after you have loaded the skip, and we will organise the collection. Normally, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take a bit longer during hectic periods.
Can I pile up waste in my skip?
It is vital to not overload your skip. You must not pass the level load line that is shown on the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it becomes very hazardous to move. Which means that when you overload the skip, you may be required to take away the surplus waste. However secure you feel the skip is, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. That is dangerous and is therefore not allowed.
How can I hire a skip?
Hiring a skip shouldn’t be difficult. That is why we have made the order procedure as easy as possible. First, enter your delivery postcode to view the range of skips we are able to deliver to Milton Keynes. Pick which size you want to hire, and confirm if it is going to be located on private property. Enter your details and make payment using our secure payment platform.
Once your order is complete, we will send you a confirmation email with all your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
I’m afraid not, as electronic products including old televisions, cookers, laptops and monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items have to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly manner.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The name builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These are the largest containers used to get rid of substantial building waste materials such as stone, bricks, gravel or soil.
The builder’s skip is great for a wide range of tasks. If you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning out the shed, these substantial containers are often the most cost-effective choice available.
If I need a skip on a road in Milton Keynes, will I need a permit?
In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you need your skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or home, you have got to obtain authorisation from the local council in Milton Keynes, which is referred to as a permit. If required, we will be glad to arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less thing to think about. The council will charge a fee for the permit, plus you should be aware before booking that securing the licence will often take up to two working days.
Will you deliver skips across Buckinghamshire?
Yes, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skips to locations across Buckinghamshire, such as Milton Keynes, Buckingham, Gerrards Cross and Princes Risborough. So wherever you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
Am I allowed to put all kinds of rubbish in my skip?
You are able to fill up the skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly generated from garage clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include wood, soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.
What you throw in your skip depends on which skip size you have hired, as there is a weight limit. For example, if you will be using your skip for heavy construction waste like concrete or dirt, the largest size you would be able to hire is the 8 cubic yard.
Some materials can not be disposed of in a skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
Will the skip have a drop down door?
Generally speaking, nearly all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, dependant upon size, availability and area. If you need a drop door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip with a drop door is mainly helpful when choosing a big builder’s skip, since it means that you can wheelbarrow rubbish straight into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini and midi skips, because they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How large is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are perfect for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and broken baby toys to paving slabs and rubble. With a volume of around 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you having to make multiple trips to the local recycling centre.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ensure your skip is provided when required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the following day.
Although we are not able to guarantee an exact delivery time, we will always do our best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
It is important to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery effort will often incur a charge for the wasted trip.

Where will you take the rubbish from my skip?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste will get segregated into a range of waste streams, which includes wood, soil and paper. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection can be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!

We will immediately show you the skip sizes we provide in your area and how much each option will cost you to order. If the skip is going to be on the road or other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also need to be factored in.
Will a skip hire company from Milton Keynes deliver my skip?
We use a large network of both local and nationwide skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our clients in Milton Keynes and the rest of the UK. All of our partner companies are approved and evaluated to make certain they satisfy our expectations for cost, service, recycling and reliability.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The roll-on roll-off skip, often referred to as a RORO, is a large container used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These bins are predominantly for commercial use but can be hired by household customers as well. However, you will require a good amount of room since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger in comparison to the typical skip you will likely see on the roadside.
Due to the size, roll-on roll-off skips can only be provided for light-weight materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, and so they are not suitable for getting rid of soil and bricks.
Should I be in when the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered, however it can help. Being home when the skip is due for delivery means that you can ensure the driver is given full access and that your skip will be positioned precisely where you want it. Likewise, if your skip is being delivered to your business premises, we will appreciate your help during the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
Even so, in the event you can’t be around during delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask that you let us know when you place your order, and we will organise everything from there.
